- The marketplace distributes 15% of the total supply of 1 billion $RARE to artists and collectors who’ve participated in its community.
- SuperRare grants its curation decision to token-based voting and the governing council.
Non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace SuperRare introducing a Curation Token called $RARE to decentralize the project.
According to the announcement, the $RARE token marks “the first step in our ongoing commitment to progressive decentralization and continued disruption of the art market.”
SuperRare was introduced in April 2018, with over $90M in NFT art sales to over 1400 artists on their platform. SuperRare 2.0 will introduce spaces, independently curated storefronts supervised and chosen by the SuperRare DAO. The curation Token, $RARE will be utilized as primary instrument to add more curators, galleries, and collectives to SuperRare Spaces.
SuperRare grants its curation decision to token-based voting and the governing council. SuperRare Governance Council is a group of nominated community members that implement decisions based on votes of $RARE token holders.
“In near futures we expect that the next great artistic talent will not be discovered by a gallerist or gatekeeper but by the community of $RARE curators,” according to the blog.
Introduction of Smart Contracts
SuperRare is also introducing a feature called Sovereign Smart Contracts to become a multi-contract platform. It will enable artists to create custom, bespoke NFT minting contacts. Independent artists on SuperRare can now deploy custom smart contracts and import artworks minted elsewhere.
RARE holders will have the power to vote on which spaces should go live next in a recurring vote known as the Space Race.
