Guides Nov 10 2022
BNB’s NFT Ecosystem

The birth of Binance NFT took place on June 24, 2021. In a short span of 1 year, BNB’s NFT ecosystem has developed very well. BNB came up with the NFT ecosystem to provide everyone with the ultimate experience. Whether you’re a creator, a passionate collector, or new to the world of NFTs, there’s something exciting for everyone.

Binance got the support of some top-tier collaborations with brands, celebrities, gaming projects, and influencers, as there was over 1 billion USDT in total trading volume on the platform. Some famous brands and celebrities that collaborated are Jimmy Choo, Mobile Legends, Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson, and Akon.

On the event of the 1st anniversary of the BNB NFT ecosystem, the ‘Genesis’ collection featured two iconic artworks. The ‘Three Self-Portraits’ by Andy Warhol was one of them, and the other one was ‘The Divine Comedy: rebeget’ by Salvador Dali, which featured the bitcoin symbol.

Why Choose BNB Smart Chain For NFTs?

NFTs are moving on different platforms with their craze and popularity increasing over time. There are plenty of NFT projects coming up on the BNB Smart Chain right now after Ethereum. The main reasons behind choosing BNB Smart Chain are scalability, low transaction fees as compared to other blockchains, and the most significant one is the backing by Binance. As Binance is the largest crypto exchange in the world, people can put their trust and rely on BNB Smart Chain.

On top of that, BSC is compatible with Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), which makes it easy for developers to port their DApps from Ethereum to BSC. Even if we look from the perspective of NFTs, it will be pretty affordable to buy and sell NFTs on BSC. So, even smaller investors can buy and sell NFTs on BSC with low transaction fees.

NFT Transaction Fees on BNB Chain

Whenever someone makes a transaction with NFTs on the BNB chain, they will be charged gas fees in BNB. Like other blockchains, the governance token of the BNB ecosystem is BNB – Binance coin, so you need to have this token in your wallet to be able to pay gas fees. The gas fee for BNB is calculated in Gwei, which is used to determine a small number of ETH. On average, the gas fee on BNB chain is 5-8 Gwei per transaction – 1 Gwei = 0.000000001 (or 10-9) ETH). 

BNB Chain has low gas costs and fast transaction execution speed, which results in significant cost savings for NFT users. You can compare the gas fees and transaction processing speed of the BNB Chain against other blockchains in the following image:

On the other hand, if you trade NFT on NFT marketplaces, you also have to pay fees for these platforms. For example, Binance NFT marketplace charges a set 1% fee on every transaction, which is lower than several major NFT marketplaces. Users will still need to pay gas fees, which can add up. In addition, there are no fees for listing NFTs on Binance NFT.
