While the purchase of the digital fraction gives players an opportunity to use the item within the metaverse, buying the NFT as a whole allows gamers to also receive the item in real life.
The project ensures the legitimacy of every product sold on the market. The gamified marketplace’s authentication process guarantees that only verified trustworthy sellers can join the platform.
