To ring in the New Year, and to kick off the launch of this blog, we are starting with an article introducing ourselves. Even if you are familiar with who we are and what we do, this article will get you up to speed on Gaia and some things that we accomplished in the first full calendar year of existence. Now, if this is your first time learning about Gaia; welcome! We are very happy to have you here, and you are in for a ride.
What is Gaia?
Launched in December 2021, Gaia is the leading marketplace for digital collectibles and NFTs on the Flow blockchain. We offer collectibles from top brands as well as from top creators around the world, such as NBA Top Shot, BALLERZ, and Dimension X. One of the standout features on the platform is the option to bulk-list and bulk-delist your collectibles in one transaction. Another advantage we provide is the ability to purchase digital collectibles with a credit card, bank transfer, or crypto.
Now, who is behind the Gaia marketplace? Great question.
NFTG (short for NFT Genius) is the company behind Gaia. As a team, we have decades of combined experience in the blockchain industry, and are here to stay, even during this challenging bear market.
We as a team are looking to continue to expand our marketplace, onboard more users, adding new collections and huge IPs, implementing new product features, and pioneering new experiences to further our mission: Bringing The World Together Through Collectibles.
Year-In-Review: Gaia At A Glance
This past December 20th, we celebrated Gaia’s 1st birthday. We have come a long way since Gaia’s inception, and are very proud of what we’ve built. Here is a breakdown of some accomplishments over the past 12 months:
- We’ve got tons of incredible listings, including NBA Top Shot, BALLERZ, Dimension X, and more
- Our Twitter community is now at over 7,500, and we have over 1,500 members on Discord
- We’ve had over 30 engaging “Gaia Gathering” Twitter Spaces, with a cumulative attendance of over 4,000 active listeners
- We’ve given away over $200,000 worth of NFTs to our community, and we will only be adding to that tally in 2023 – more to come 😉
- We launched our Gaia Element packs & symbols, which we’re proud to say is the very first pack-opening experience created by a general collectibles marketplace
- We made a huge splash in Miami Beach this month in Miami for Art Basel, engaging with artists, collectors, and investors in both physical & digital art
2023 & Beyond
While we can’t tell you exactly what we have planned for the 2023 calendar year, there is one thing we can mention.
We will be hosting a conference with virtual and in-person elements. Date and location to be announced soon. The event will combine both digital and physical experiences, and will be extremely limited. That’s all we can say for now. If you want to join the waitlist and potentially attend the event, please be on the lookout for the link via our email newsletter. You can join our email newsletter to the right of this article.
Besides the conference, we will continue to scale and grow. This bear market is the perfect opportunity to go even faster. We have no plans to slow down. We will be doubling down on creating exceptional products and experiences, marketing to our ideal audiences, and growing our user base.
If you think you would make a great partner in helping us scale, and have an IP you want to list on our marketplace, please click here to fill out the form and we will be in touch.
More than anything, our current and future success wouldn’t be possible without our amazing community & our partners. Thank you for choosing us and being part of the community!
