Why Colecti?

Society is becoming increasingly digitized and interconnected, with blockchain-based solutions and NFTs becoming integral parts of people’s lives. As this industry grows, so too does the need for accessible, immutable and transferable digital possession, and ownership.

Poor Consumer Experience – NFTs have put blockchain and Web3 technology on the map, seeing mainstream adoption and coverage. However, the experience of creating and minting an NFT  for consumers today lacks accessibility and can be inefficient, expensive and frustrating.

Environmental impact – NFTs have caused a lot of controversies when it comes to their impact on the environment. Many believe individual pieces of crypto art, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), are responsible for the millions of tons of planet-heating carbon dioxide emissions generated by the cryptocurrencies used to buy and sell them.

UtilityAlthough the NFT market has been booming, and owning specific NFTs already brings the owner social status and community access, most projects lack true utility, meaning buyers can not further leverage their NFTs after purchasing them.

Colecti’s Mission

Colecti provides an easy to use platform which offers users and creators easy access to NFT innovation and trading so those inside and outside the crypto sphere can buy and trade digital assets and forge the next generation of NFTs.
