In the first week of its testnet operations, 966 users registered and verified their accounts on NFT Marketplace. In total, 273 digital artists created and deployed their works on the market mechanism.
In total, they created 508 non-fungible tokens available for purchase by IOTA-oriented NFT enthusiasts.

Why is IOTA better for NFTs?
The NFT Marketplace team assured that its members will “work hard” to advance the functionality of the platform.
Co-founder of the IOTA Foundation Dominik Schiener congratulated the marketplace team with the first milestones achieved:
As covered by U.Today previously, IOTA is touted as the best platform for minting non-fungible tokens due to its “no-cost” operations.
Unlike Ethereum (ETH), Tron (TRX), and similar platforms, IOTA does not charge a fee for deploying and activating non-fungible tokens. At present, the market is working on IOTA testnet with sandbox tokens.
