What can you do on Quix NFT Marketplace?
This platform has something for everybody, both users and developers. If you are a user, get ready to collect and sell digital collectibles. For example, you can move NFTs from the Ethereum blockchain to Optimism and back. This works through the Optimism bridge, very similar to the methods used to bridge cryptocurrencies from one blockchain to another.
Moreover, to increase your chances of getting rewards on time, you can also do Galxe Optimism quests.
On the other hand, if you are a developer, Quix´s NFT Launchpad lets you launch no-code smart contracts for free-to-mint collections. These collections can then be used in the in-app rarity ranking calculator and the floor sweep tool.
Why have Quix UAWs increased during the past month?
Quix has done a great job at pulling new buyers and sellers during recent months, a trend similar to Optimism’s as seen in the graph above. High spikes, especially during the past week are likely due to newbie users to this platform and eager token hunters.
The hype fits with the team’s recent announcement of the official Optimism NFT bridge on October 12th as well as several quests to incentivize users on their platform. The graph below shows a surging trend across all statistics including UAW, Volume and Transactions following such events.
