Who we are
real is a marketplace where real estate photographers create and sell professional photos for consumers to trade online. Each real NFT is a unique portrayal of a real world landmark, landscape, institution or home created by a local artist from your community. When an NFT is created by an artist it is traced back to that artist with every transaction in the form of a royalty. So, the original artist is always credited and rewarded for the work they completed. We believe trading images as NFTs is the best way to protect the ownership and usage of these images, while also protecting the original artist who created them. The real NFT marketplace provides a safe haven for all digital imagery, from creator to consumer.
Why we are here
Online image theft is rampant, especially in the real estate community. And, while it seems harmless on the surface, it’s actually quite damaging for the artist who creates the image. Photographers are forced to put their work out there with zero protections, at very little pay. The real NFT marketplace is designed to protect the ownership of an artist’s digital portfolio, while rewarding them for their hard work.
When you purchase an NFT from real, you are not only owning a piece of real world history, you are supporting a real life artist. Most photographers work as independent contractors, with little recourse after a shoot is complete. Once the work is published, the possession is out of the artist’s control. The real NFT marketplace is the only place, real or digital, that secures their efforts and the ongoing value they provide.
As society becomes more virtual in its daily routine, actually seeing the world has suddenly become more of a chore for many. Photographers are our lens to the real world, we cannot afford to lose them. We need to protect and support our artists… if we don’t, who will?
How it works
Buying an NFT on the real marketplace is actually pretty easy, as long as you remember to use MetaMask for your wallet, BNB for your gas fees, and BUSD for your NFT purchases.
Set up your wallet
We use MetaMask for our wallet. Once you’ve set up your MetaMask wallet, connect it to the real NFT Marketplace by clicking Connect Wallet in the top right corner.
Purchase your cryptocurrency
We use BNB for our gas fees and BUSD for our NFT transactions. You can purchase both BNB and BUSD on the Binance.US exchange, or a number of other exchanges. Just remember, you will only need a little bit of BNB (gas fees are less than $1), and a lot of BUSD (the sky’s the limit on what you wish to purchase).
Purchase your NFTs
First, your wallet must be connected. Once connected, you can select any NFT from our marketplace for purchase. The price of the NFT will be listed in US dollars and BUSD (same equivalence).
Resell your NFTs
Yes, you can resell your purchased NFTs. To sell an NFT on the real marketplace, just go to your profile and click on the desired NFT. Then select to sell that NFT, and set the sale price. Just remember, once you mint your NFT for sale and the listing is live, you cannot go back and change the price.
Who it’s for
All of the artists ‘minting’ NFTs on the real marketplace are professional real estate photographers. It is the one and only marketplace for photographers, by photographers. Photographers worldwide can now be rewarded for their hard work.
In addition to capturing images for business and residential needs, the real NFT marketplace will also be home to many national landmarks and institutions. Digital art collectors can uniquely own Times Square, or the Hollywood Sign, or any other iconic landmark with first edition digital artwork. And, if they don’t find what they want in our marketplace, they can always order their very own custom NFT, making it truly one of a kind.
Journalists and Bloggers
Who tells the stories of these business owners? Better yet, who tells all the stories and posts them online for all to enjoy? Journalists and bloggers. So, they most certainly have a need for true image ownership and usage when posting a story. After all, a picture does tell a thousand words.
Digital Art Collectors
In addition to capturing images for business and residential needs, the real NFT marketplace will also be home to many national landmarks and institutions. All one of a kind, single edition. Digital art collectors can uniquely own Times Square, or the Hollywood Sign, or any other iconic landmark with single issued digital artwork.
