NFTs or Non-fungible Tokens are the beautiful child of art and tech that has changed the world as we know it. Creating art on NFT platforms transformed the interaction between content creators and consumers, the NFT industry is estimated to grow from $3 billion in 2022 to $13.6 billion by 2027!
While it can be difficult to grasp the concept of digital ownership, NFTs made the innovation of digital scarcity meaning that NFT is basically a digital file that cannot be duplicated.
An NFT platform is your entry point to buy and sell these digital arts. In a way, NFT platforms can be compared to the Amazon of the internet.
Finding the finest NFT marketplace for you entails taking into account the fees you'll pay, the type of art sold (does it fit your style?), and the blockchain that its created on. The majority of NFT marketplaces utilize Ethereum blockchain, but some are switching to newer blockchains (like Polygon) because of their lower gas fees (which you must pay to mint your NFT) and lower carbon print. While there are plenty to choose from, in this article we’ll give you the best NFT platforms in MENA.
5 Best NFT Platforms in MENA

On Nifty, you can select the percentage you want to charge for each secondary sale when creating an NFT.
