Looks.Rare – NFT marketplace with its own token economy. Get rewarded for buying and selling NFTs in $LOOKS token which you can then trade in for ETH or other coins.
Rarible – a multichain NFT marketplace that currently supports NFTs on the Ethereum, Flow and Tezos blockchains.
NFT trading tools
Rarity.tools – find the rarity and ranking of NFTs and of NFT collections. They also have a great calendar for upcoming releases and mints.
Rarity Sniper – less accurate than rarity.tools but another great resource to understand the rank and therefore value of NFTs and NFT collections.
NFTranking.io – a subscription service that claims they provide access to NFT rankings before these even hit the market. The idea is if you know rarity before the market, then just after mint you can sweep the floor (pick up for cheap) of certain NFT collections or snag valuable NFTs for cheap on the secondary market. We don’t use NFTranking but may try it in the future.
