Deeply committed to a sustainable blockchain future, OneOf is a NFT platform that supports NFTs on multiple energy-efficient blockchains, to create sustainable, creator-and-fan-friendly experiences. Minting a NFT on OneOf's platform uses up to 2 million times less energy than proof-of-work networks, and for its artist and brand partners, minting NFTs costs $0 in blockchain transaction fees. OneOf aims to bring the next 100 million non-crypto-native fans into Web3 by removing the technical frictions and allowing fans to pay for their NFTs with credit/debit cards as well as major cryptocurrencies. Committed to diversity, over 80% of the collections featured on OneOf comes from minority or female creators. In addition, OneOf donates portions of proceeds from every NFT collection to its artist or athlete partner’s preferred charity.
