FAQs

What Makes Grabbit’s Platform Trustless and Decentralized?

All auction activity is conducted entirely on-chain: listings, bidding, resolution, royalty payments, and refunds. As a buyer you don’t have to trust us to submit your bid, and as a seller you don’t have to trust us to present you with the highest bid.

For more details, check out our upcoming article on the smart contracts behind our auctions going live on September 20th.

How Do Grabbit’s Auctions Enhance Price Discovery?

Since every NFT is unique, there isn’t a well established market price like you would find for fungible tokens like ADA or BTC. If you list an NFT at a fixed price, you don’t know if you’re pricing it too high, too low, or just right. With an auction, prospective buyers can bid up the price until it exceeds what they are willing to pay. This helps you sell your NFT for the market price without requiring a magic crystal ball that tells you what it’s worth.

How Does Grabbit Foster Community Engagement?

We partner with artists and communities and connect them with world-class advisors through the Grabbit Community Accelerator Program (CAP). We help them find opportunities to collab, reach a new audience, and spread the word about their communities, as well as being a partner in solving the unique challenges they face. As Grabbit matures, we will also be working with the CAP participants to build out custom functionality to enable unique experiences for their communities that wouldn’t be possible anywhere else.
