We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve partnered with VIV3, the first global NFT marketplace on the Flow blockchain.

VIV3 has grown rapidly, attracting creators and collectors who want to buy and sell NFTs. Since many newcomers are unfamiliar with blockchain technology, however, MoonPay’s fiat on-ramp makes VIV3’s marketplace accessible to all.

“VIV3 is leading the way by empowering creators,” said our CEO Ivan Soto-Wright. “As NFTs continue to transform art and culture, facilitating entry to these markets is crucial. Customers can now access NFTs using the currency that best suits them, on a marketplace they know they can trust.”

“We couldn’t be more excited about this collaboration,” said Daniel Podaru, VIV3’s Chief Executive Officer. “NFTs from independent artists and the first blockchain games on Flow—Chainmonsters, DarkCountry, and MotoGP Ignition—will be accessible to new collectors through the Moonpay integration.”

VIV3’s early adopters include Ben Mauro, a concept design artist who worked on The Hobbit trilogy and The Amazing Spiderman 2, Anne Spalter, known for her public works in New York and Hong Kong, and Remo Camero, a multimedia artist with work exhibited in Tate and the Carrousel du Louvre.

VIV3 inspires creators to do what they love most. Our fiat on-ramp, which is now accessible to all decentralised applications (DApps) in the Flow ecosystem, allows VIV3 to achieve its vision and unlock NFTs for all. We are thrilled to be a part of this and look forward to watching this marketplace reach its full potential.
