Launched in 2022, X2Y2 is a next-generation NFT marketplace with the mission of challenging the market’s big sharks, like OpenSea, in building a “truly decentralized” platform and empowering NFT creators.
What is X2Y2 NFT marketplace
X2Y2 has rapidly taken off after its initial launch and is now the second-best performing platform within the NFT market industry. The project’s main goal is to provide fully decentralized, secure, and industry-proven services to community members. What’s more, X2Y2 boasts 100% profit to token stakers. Among other features are the absence of private token sales and an unexpirable airdrop offered to all OpenSea users who have traded before. What else can users expect?
X2Y2 is specifically designed to boost the convenience and functionality of NFT marketplaces. Besides, the platform puts creators and their interests first -- each member is supplied with a set of tools intended to help users with managing the NFT minting process.
Recently, the X2Y2 team announced that users can now decide on the amount of royalties they want to contribute:

Dominant aggregators intend to provide similar functionality in the imminent future. As such, X2Y2 would like to make sure we are ready & staying on top of market movements.
As the decision was met with both praise and criticism, X2Y2 remains true to its mission of staying on top of the latest trends in the NFT community.
How to use X2Y2
The X2Y2 NFT marketplace seeks to solve issues related to buying and selling non-fungible tokens by implementing several features of crucial importance based on cutting-edge technology.

How to buy an NFT on X2Y2
Depending on the offerings of the marketplace, there are several methods of sale procedure available. Let’s take a quick look at the options offered to X2Y2 users.
Buying a fixed price NFT
- To purchase a fixed price NFT, open the “Details” page, and click “Buy now”.

- Connect your preferred wallet. Use this guide to connect a wallet.
- First-time buyers will have to accept the terms of service.
- Check the details of a transaction. If correct, confirm the payment.
- Wait for the transaction to process.
- The purchase is complete.
Offer on ONE NFT
In case the creator has not yet decided on the exact value of an NFT, there is a “Make an offer” option available. Buyers willing to purchase the NFT can suggest their own price, and the seller has the right to either accept or decline the offer.
To proceed, please go to the “Details” page and click “Make an Offer”. Some things to consider: all offers are made in WETH (Wrapped Ethereum). Your money will not be withdrawn from the wallet unless the offer is accepted. Offers can be canceled anytime before confirmed.
When making the offer, each user is required to fill in the expiration date (timeframe) and price. If the offer is confirmed, the user is notified with an alert and sent further instructions.
With this option, X2Y2 users can purchase NFTs in batches instead of making several stand-alone purchases every time. Unlike the purchasing mode described above, this time, a buyer makes an offer on the entire collection. The original creator makes collection offers available for participants.
