Ethereum NFTs Now Listed By FTX US

FTX US has rushed ahead of Coinbase to open trading for Ethereum NFTs. The firm is looking beyond Solana for its NFT marketplace.

The firm tweeted:

"We’re excited to expand our NFT marketplace, allowing users to buy, sell, and display their Ethereum NFTs alongside their Solana NFTs for the first time! Probably nothing."

The leading exchange announced it had begun trading Ethereum NFTs, adding to the selection of Solana-based tokens that have been available on the platform since it launched in October. 

The exchange launched the update with a host of the most sought-after Ethereum collections, including Bored Ape Yacht Club, CrypToadz, Doodles, and World of Women. Additionally, a November 23 teaser posted by FTX suggests that CryptoPunks and Cool Cats will appear on the marketplace in the future. 

FTX.US jumped onto the NFT bandwagon by rolling out its marketplace with support for Solana NFTs in October when Coinbase announced its plans to launch a similar offering. Coinbase NFT is due to land sometime before the end of the year, and it will also support Ethereum NFTs. 

While the move could help FTX.US go up against Coinbase, it still has several other competitors to contend with. Arguably the biggest is OpenSea, which hit $10 billion in trading volume last month, far surpassing any of its competitors.

FTX.US’ NFT marketplace differs from OpenSea as it holds custody of each token, similar to how centralized exchanges hold other crypto assets. FTX.US also charges only 2% sale fees, whereas OpenSea takes 2.5%. 

Ethereum Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

Looking at the Ethereum price chart, we see that ETH has slipped below $4500 as sellers continue to push the price down. If the current sentiment persists, we could see ETH drop to $4400.
