SuperRare,’ the digital art marketplace, has surpassed $1.6 million in cumulative trade volume as buyers become more comfortable with the concept of art sold as non-fungible tokens.

It has been reported that the marketplace started the year with $344,000 in platform sales volume, but has seen that figure almost quadruple in seven months.

However, artists are able to digitally sign their work on the platform by creating a tokenized certificate before entering it into an online auction. Collectors can then purchase and resell works in secondary markets.

Non-fungible token (NFT) is a specific type of digital asset where each token has a unique identifier. They can be used to represent ownership rights for everything from digital fan collectibles to artworks. The current standard for these types of token is the ERC-721 which is based on Ethereum.

For artists, these NFTs also offer a new way to capitalize on growth over time through structured royalty fee systems.

It has been analyzed that SuperRare operates on a 15% commission basis with 85% going to the creator, but what is even more appealing to artists is the 10% royalty fee on secondary sales.

Mason Nystrom, the Research Analyst at Messari Crypto, has plotted the growth charts, for SuperRare, and notes that collectors from 178 countries have earned over $350,000 in secondary sales, demonstrating a vibrant post-auction market.

Likewise, the marketplace itself claimed that over 8,000 works had been sold on the platform, earning artists over $1.3 million and collectors over $430,000. 

Nonfungible.com states that SuperRare is the second-highest NFT platform in terms of seven-day volume, surpassing the Ethereum Name Service over the past week.
