Rarible and Mantle Launch Mintle

Rarible, one of the OG NFT marketplaces in web3, is announcing its integration with Mantle to create an unparalleled secondary NFT marketplace, Mintle, to support NFT trading on Mantle Network. To date, Rarible has supported over $27 million in NFTs traded across Ethereum, Polygon, Flow, and Tezos. The latest collaboration with Mantle builds on Rarible’s cross-chain vision, enabling users to accelerate the growth of the Mantle Ecosystem with simplified NFT trading.

Rarible will power Mintle, a new go-to trading destination for Mantle NFTs, with its robust tech stack centered on user-friendliness and seamless trading. Combined with Mantle’s DAO-led, high-performance Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) modular layer-2 (L2) blockchain, trading NFTs on Mintle will be fast, easy, and cost-efficient. This is achieved via Mantle Network’s unique ability to tackle the data availability problem in L2 blockchains. Combined with modular architecture, driving economies of scale is made possible with a considerable reduction in transaction fees.

Mintle, just like Rarible, is built with the open-source Rarible Protocol. The Protocol is used by 4000+ applications and is governed by $RARI holders and the delegate community. Mintle will be a community-powered marketplace that empowers creators to tap into new monetization channels, including enforced royalties. Creators and projects on Mantle Network can apply to be featured on the Mintle marketplace through this application

Alex Salinov, Chief Strategy Officer and Co-Founder of Rarible, commented on this development: “We’re incredibly excited to support Mantle Network in growing its NFT vertical because it’s another step towards realizing Rarible’s cross-chain vision. It aligns perfectly with our ethos of fostering community-centric marketplaces while pushing the boundaries of what NFTs can offer. Launching the Mintle marketplace is the perfect way to bring Rarible’s marketplace experience to a wider, more engaged audience.”

Sean Lee from NFT Partnership Team at Mantle added, “Rarible has a strong track record of delivering exciting branded experiences, advanced customization options, and a safe community environment with its community marketplace offering. We’re excited to launch Mintle in collaboration with Rarible to bring those same exceptional experiences to our DAO-led ecosystem and drive new NFT growth on Mantle Network. Complementary to our unique community-driven engagement program Mantle Journey, we’re excited to chart the next evolution of on-chain interactivity together.” 

In conjunction with the Mintle marketplace launch on Sept. 19, Mantle’s Citizens of Mantle NFT collection will launch in the coming week. The collection will be tradable on the platform alongside other featured NFT collections. Avatars from the Citizens of Mantle collection function like dynamic NFTs, evolving as users achieve milestones within Mantle Ecosystem through building, connecting, playing, earning, or trading with other users and dApps.

About Mantle 

Mantle Ecosystem comprises an Ethereum layer 2 (L2) — Mantle Network, a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) — Mantle Governance, one of the largest on-chain treasuries — Mantle Treasury, and an upcoming Ether (ETH) liquid staking product — Mantle LSD: all built on Ethereum. Mantle token is the unified product and governance token of the ecosystem. 

Mantle’s first core product is Mantle Network, an L2 technology stack for scaling Ethereum. Mantle Network strives to be compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine. Mantle Network’s modular architecture separates transaction execution, data availability, and transaction finality into modules — which can be individually upgraded and adopt the latest innovations. Mantle Network is the first L2 to partner with ETH restaking protocol EigenLayer for the data availability module. By adopting a rollup architecture, Mantle Network is secured by Ethereum. As the world’s first DAO-spawned L2, Mantle Network is pioneering a vision for the mass adoption of token-governed technologies. 

Mantle token ($MNT) powers Mantle Network as its native gas token and ecosystem growth token, and serves as the governance token of Mantle Governance. All future Mantle products will likewise be initiated by the Mantle token holder community through vote and powered by Mantle token.
