Solanart aspires to assist in the promotion of artists and creators by providing them with a safe and secure platform in which to share their work.
How Does Solanart Work?
When you list your NFT for sale, it is placed on a ‘Temporary Account’ that is controlled by the marketplace software and added to a database that contains the information about the transaction.
In the event that someone purchases your NFT, the software sends the SOL amount from the buyer to the seller, and then unlocks the NFT, which is subsequently transferred to the purchaser.
Solanart makes advantage of data from both on-chain and off-chain sources. When showing NFT on the main page, the off-chain data is maintained in a database and is used to display all of the NFT for sale, while the on-chain data is utilized when presenting NFT one by one or from the ‘My NFTs for sale’ section under the ‘Wallet’ tab, which is stored on the blockchain.
The decision to use a database for the main page was made to enable for quick sorting of all NFTs based on qualities, price, and whether they were the oldest or the newest sales.It is safe and decentralized to use on-chain data since it is stored on the blockchain.
In truth, the marketplace could be completely decentralized, but due to the request limits on the Solana Network, it is presently not possible to handle several thousands of NFTs for sale and show them with filters on the main page.

Every transaction is subject to a 3 percent marketplace charge, which is deducted from the selling price.
A creator’s fee, which is determined by the creators and, as a result, varies based on the collection, is included in the selling price and fully experienced by the artists.
Before you put your NFT up for sale, double-check that you have enough SOL to pay the transaction cost.
