SMART VALOR has reached the next milestone of its NFT Marketplace VALOR Prime today. With it the technical development of the key functionality is completed and the focus shifts to asset sourcing.
VALOR Prime technical milestone
SMART VALOR development team is happy to announce that they accomplished the development of key functionality. The fiat and credit card functionality allows users to pay for NFTs bought on its VALOR Prime with traditional payment methods. This is achieved through integration of VALOR Prime, the NFT marketplace, with SMART VALOR, the fiat-crypto exchange. This is one of the key features of VALOR Prime as it allows users to easily buy NFTs without the need for setting up their own non-custodial wallets such as Metamask (Web3 wallets). Moreover, this also significantly decreases cost, as the SMART VALOR exchange is covering gas fees when purchases are done via SMART VALOR wallets.
This important feature is also setting VALOR Prime apart from other marketplaces such as OpenSea and Rarible as one of the few which has fiat on-ramp. Having traditional payment mechanism integrated into the NFT marketplace is key prerequisite to drive the adoption of NFT beyond the early NFT adopters circle bringing it to the everyday exchange users and people not familiar with crypto.
CEO of SMART VALOR Oliver Feldmeier said, “I am happy the team has accomplished this technical development milestone. With this user can enjoy zero gas fees transactions when buying NFTs with the funds from their SMART VALOR account."
Using fiat and credit cards for NFT purpose is a non-trivial challenge. This is due to the fact that all fiat transactions require personal identification and adherence to compliance / KYC (Know Your Customer) requirements. Most of the NFT platforms today have not yet figured out how to deal with this big issue today. This is where SMART VALOR today has a competitive edge. As one of the very few fully compliant exchanges, authorized by Finanancial Market Authority (FMA) in Liechtenstein, SMART VALOR deals with fiat and installed a highly efficient onboarding process. This is the key asset we are bringing to our new NFT marketplace.
