The Zora Protocol
Zora is a public protocol that allows anyone to buy, sell, or create NFTs. Zora believes in the power of collective creation and believes owners should benefit lastingly from their work. Therefore, as a royalty-free protocol, Zora does not charge for listing and selling your NFTs. Now developers, founders, wallet providers and the public can access all the information they need to create with NFTs.
What are crypto media?
Cryptomedia revolves around the concept that crypto blockchain innovation enables unrestricted access to media for all members of society (often referred to as “the commons”). At the same time, it entitles the holder to advantages in relation to the value of the piece. In short, Cryptomedia means the media is free, so anyone can share or use it. However, the creator can still own media.
“Crytomedia captures the paradox that an artistic work is free to use but is still valuable. People will still pay the original creator for the right to own the work. It’s like owing a painting but exhibiting it in a public gallery for free. The public enjoys it, but the creator/future owner can still buy and sell the ownership of the work.” -Zora
