Listing and Selling NFTs on Stargaze: A Comprehensive Guide

The world of digital art and collectibles is flourishing, and at the heart of this renaissance is the Non-Fungible Token (NFT) — a unique digital asset verified using blockchain technology. Stargaze, a leading platform in this space, offers artists and creators an avenue to not just mint, but also effectively list and sell their NFTs. Whether you’re an artist hoping to monetize your masterpiece or a collector looking to sell a prized possession, understanding the intricacies of the Stargaze platform can greatly enhance your selling experience. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll walk you through the essential steps and strategies for listing and selling your NFTs on Stargaze, ensuring you’re equipped to navigate this vibrant digital marketplace with confidence.

Setting the Price:

  • Fixed Price: This is a straightforward approach where you determine a set price for your NFT. Buyers can then purchase the NFT immediately at this price. It offers clarity and simplicity for both the seller and potential buyers.
  • Auction-style: This method allows buyers to place bids on your NFT. The NFT will go to the highest bidder at the end of the auction duration. Auctions can generate higher prices, especially for sought-after pieces, but also come with the uncertainty of final sale prices.

Time Duration for Auctions:

  • Setting the Duration: Determine how long you want your auction to last. Common durations range from 24 hours to a week, but the choice largely depends on your strategy and the visibility of the NFT.
  • Anti-sniping Measures: Some platforms, like Stargaze, have features to combat last-second bids (or “sniping”). If a bid is placed close to the auction’s end, the duration might extend to give other participants a fair chance to counter-bid.

Promoting NFT Listings:

  • Platform Features: Platforms like Stargaze might offer promotional spots or featured sections where you can highlight your NFTs for increased visibility.
  • Ensure your NFT listings have clear, engaging thumbnails. A visually compelling preview can entice potential buyers to explore your listing further.
  • Social Media: Share your NFT listings on social media platforms like Twitter, Instagram, or dedicated NFT and crypto communities. Engaging visuals, behind-the-scenes content, or creator stories can enhance engagement. Tailor your content to fit each platform’s audience.
  • Engaging Content: Beyond just sharing the listing link, create engaging content around your NFT. This could be the story behind its creation, a time-lapse of its making, or any other related content.
  • Use Relevant Hashtags: For platforms like Twitter and Instagram, using popular NFT and art-related hashtags can increase your content’s discoverability.
  • Collaborations: Partner with other creators or platforms for joint promotions, or engage influencers in the NFT space to showcase your work.
  • Engage with the Community: Being active in platform-specific forums, chats, or Discord servers can boost the visibility of your NFTs and establish credibility.
  • Forums & Chat Groups: Engage with members on platforms like Reddit, Discord servers, or Telegram groups dedicated to NFT discussions.
  • Attend Virtual Events: Participate in NFT-related webinars, virtual meetups, or conferences. Engaging with a network of enthusiasts can increase your NFT’s visibility and credibility.

Understanding Transaction Fees and Final Proceeds:

  • Platform Fees: Most platforms charge a fee for listing, selling, or both. It’s crucial to understand these fees upfront to gauge your potential earnings. These fees often go towards platform maintenance, development, and other operational costs.
  • Royalty Deductions: If you’re reselling an NFT, remember that a portion of the sale (defined by the royalty rate set during minting) will go to the original creator. This on-chain royalty ensures creators benefit from the rising value of their work.
  • Net Proceeds: Your final earnings will be the sale price minus platform fees and any royalties. Always factor these deductions when pricing your NFTs.
  • Withdrawal Fees: Transferring earnings to external wallets or converting them to other currencies might incur additional fees. Stay informed about these to have a clear picture of your net income.
