Non-fungible token marketplace NFTrade has introduced a more flexible payment method on its platform. The marketplace now allows cross-chain purchases and payments on Ethereum, BNB Chain, Polygon, and Avalanche.According to an announcement, NFTrade partnered with cross-chain interoperability protocol Rarimo to roll out the new features.These new features allow NFT collectors to initiate a purchase on one network and pay on another in one click.The latest integration with Rarimo makes NFTrade the first-ever marketplace to support multi-chain payments with ERC20 tokens.
For example, users can buy an item on Avalanche and pay with a cryptocurrency from any of the three networks, BNB Chain, Polygon, and Ethereum.Rarimo will automatically swap the buyer's tokens on the sending chain for the seller's preferred token on the receiving network.
That would allow the platform to pay the seller and release the NFT to the buyer. The announcement noted that the swapping process is decentralized, and the developer cannot have custody of the buyer's funds.
NFTrade plans to extend this cross-chain purchase offering to Immutable X, Skale, Palm, and Moonbeam later. The founder of Rarify Labs, the firm behind Rarimo, Lasha Antadze, said the new feature was part of the move to improve user experience in Web3.Read more on cryptonews.com
