Rarible is one of the most recognizable names in web3, particularly in the NFT sector, and while many organizations are winding down or have gone skeletal for the winter, Rarible hasn’t.
Robert Baggs and John Nicholls have decided to combine forces to launch the weekly Mint One Podcast. Each week they will discuss a new topic around web3, as well as feature special guests from all corners of the industry. If there’s a topic you’d like us to cover, make sure you let us know through the Token Gamer Discord or Twitter, or Mint One Twitter.
In the last episode, we discussed the biggest crypto conspiracy theories. This week, I’m joined by Alex Salnikov, Co-founder of one of the leading NFT marketplaces, Rarible.
Mint One Podcast, Episode 84: Alex Salnikov, Co-founder of Rarible
It has been a tough time for NFTs and traditional media outlets have gorged themselves chubby on comparing current prices to all-time highs. Most of us in the space knew that a judgment day for NFTs was coming, but that at the same time, the utility of the technology would not be destroyed in the collapse. We were right about that.
Alex Salnikov is one of a handful of people who have had a truly impactful — positively impactful, that is — role in the world of NFTs and Rarible has been his greatest contribution. Even today, when we’re still in a winter, albeit looking at sunlight, Rarible is processing nearly 20 million transactions in the past 30 days!
Rarible is less of a marketplace and more of an entire ecosystem these days, with a die-hard community, and in this interview, Alex explained one of Rarible’s most significant steps forward: RaribleX. RaribleX allows brands, games, and organizations to easily create their own, dedicated NFT marketplace, having provided this solution for the likes of Barbie, Mattel, and Animoca Brands, among many others.
Alex is both an important innovator in the space and a fascinating person, so carve out 44 minutes of your day to give this interview a listen!
We’d like to ask that if you listen to us on Apple Podcasts and/or Spotify, you rate us five stars and leave us a review if you enjoy Mint One. This helps both our podcast and the blockchain gaming ecosystem as a whole!
