Solanart is a fully-fledged  marketplace deployed on Solana . The platform enables users to buy and sell digital assets seamlessly at an affordable rate in Sol, Solana's own token[1][13].

Solanart aims to help promote artists and creators by providing them with a trustless marketplace to share their art. Users can get quick and easy access to Digital collectible using Solanart. It features some collections like , SolPunks, , Nyan Heroes (NFT Game), Sollamas, Kaiju Cards, and many more[2][3].

As of January 2022, 600,000 NFT have been sold on the Solanart marketplace since its creation[4].


launched in June 2021, Solanart is an open platform that operates on Solana, it is a platform where creators can freely list their collections, allowing anyone to acquire or sell Solana-based NFTs[5][3].
wikiThe NFTs in Solanart are tagged with SOL prices, and users are only allowed to use SOL in purchasing NFTs as the platform accepts no other currencies at the moment[14][15].

The platform charges a 3% market commission on the selling price of each transaction. A creator’s fee, which varies depending on the collection, is also charged on the sale price and is collected in full by the artist[6].

Solanart provides the necessary information for each NFT collection, including name, short description, owners, the price of the most affordable NFT in Floor Price, social networks of the collection, and its website. It also shows the last price that was paid for each NFT, making it a reliable and easy to use NFT platform[7][1].

How it Works

Artist or individuals who wish to list their NFTs on the platform are accepted. Solanart allows users to put their NFTs for sale on its marketplace, it is first stored on a 'Temporary Account' owned by the marketplace and then added to a database which stores the data of the sale.

When other user buys the NFT, the program transfers the SOL amount from the buyer to the seller, and then unlocks the NFT which is sent to the buyer. Solanart uses both on-chain and off-chain data.

The off-chain data is stored on a database and used to display all the NFT for sale on the main page, while the on-chain data is used when displaying NFT one by one, or from the 'My NFTs for sale' section in the 'Wallet' tab. The choice of using the database for the main page was made to allow easy sorting of all NFTs per attributes, price, oldest or newest sales etc. On-chain data provides a secure and decentralized experience[8].

However, users of the platform work with the marketplace to make sure that only authentic utilities are being listed for sale.

The platform's 'Launchpad' makes it easy for users to generate and sell NFTs, removing the need to go through several technical steps merely to get started with digital assets.

  • Project Name
  • Creator Name
  • Stage of the Project
  • A link to the project’s website
  • Email address of the creator
  • Twitter and Discord handle
  • Sample of an NFT[10]
  • Solanart Commissions
  • Solanart charges three types of fees: the ‘market commission,’ ‘creator’s fee,’ and ‘ad fee,’. And the best thing about these fees is that they are not excessive.
  • A 3% marketplace fee is taken on the selling price of every transaction. A creator's fee, which is chosen by the creators and therefore varies depending on the collection, is also taken on the selling price and fully perceived by the creators. The platform also charges a 0.02% ad fee to avoid the overflow of advertisements on the platform.
  • Users should ensure that they have enough SOL tokens on their wallets to cover the transaction and listing fees before listing their NFTs for sale to make the whole transaction as smooth as possible[8].
