Paras is an NFT marketplace that focuses on digital collectibles. Paras thrives upon bringing conventional collectibles to crypto space. Paras started with digital art cards that were inspired by real-world trading cards that have been bulletproof and forever lasting since they were introduced back in the 80s. Paras believes that every single physical art form needs to be stored and digitized to keep it future-proof. Paras, an all-in-one digital collectible marketplace, is eager to diversify the assets to digital collectibles.
By building the platform under NEAR and IPFS/Filecoin, Paras wants to track the ownership of every single collectible in their platform. Through these solutions, Paras validates ownership and gives access to every purchase and mint to the public. Running on top of NEAR, a scalable blockchain, Paras offers very cheap and fast transactions for users.
Unlike other marketplaces, Paras are putting collections forward instead of a single art release. Paras believes that collecting collectibles like digital art cards do not only attract crypto collectors but also conventional trading card collectors. With the current artists they have, Paras is confident in their ability to capture the essence and excitement of collecting a set of cards. Paras also aims to increase the NFT's value by including background stories or lore as they think that visuals can be enhanced through this approach.
