Ethereum

Advantages
• The highest trading volume of NFTs on any blockchain
• Multiple large exchanges specialising in different collections
• Two types of smart contract for NFTs
Disadvantages
• Very high mint and transaction fees
• Certain exchanges don’t allow bids using ETH

Polygon

Advantages
• Uses an Ethereum-based blockchain but with significantly lower transaction fees
• Allows you to bid on NFTs
• Accepted on most Ethereum-based exchanges
Disadvantages
• ETH has to be “wrapped” to use on Polygon’s layer 2*
• Bridges are used to convert your NFT back to the Ethereum network

* = Wrapped tokens are versions of crypto coins that are off their native blockchain, and their value is pegged to the original token. For example, wrapped Ethereum on the Polygon blockchain is valued at 1 Ethereum on the Ethereum blockchain

Tezos

Advantages
• Their blockchain is used by many large institutions worldwide, such as McLaren Racing
• Lots of real-world blockchain solutions
• An eco-friendly blockchain – consumes 0.02% of the energy compared to Ethereum 1.0 per transaction
Disadvantages

• Need Tezos-based wallets

Solana

Advantages
• Averages 2,750 transactions per second, 190x faster than the Ethereum blockchain
• No need for layer 2 systems or multiple shards
• Supports USDC stablecoin – can be transferred from Ethereum

Find Your Exchange

A crypto exchange, or swap, is a place where buyers and sellers trade their crypto on a platform. These exchanges can take many different forms, but usually involve connecting your wallet to a swap website, and swapping one crypto coin for another.

Exchanges for fiat (non-crypto) currencies involve you sending fiat to a certain bank account, and in exchange you get crypto coins into your wallet. Vice versa if selling to the exchange.

Step 1 – Find the marketplace on which a particular company’s NFTs are on sale

Step 2 – Match the marketplace to the relevant blockchain using the table below

Step 3 – Create an account with a wallet that is compatible with the blockchain.
