Product design and content creation is growing like never before in the African continent. New music writers composing stellar tastes of rhymes, event designers giving gem of design in their productions and as photographers bring out that impossible angle puzzling the definers of impossible. The desire to have value monitoring tools and a marketplace is increasing as well. Copyright infringements becoming the Elephant in the room. The growth of despair as a result of lack of visibility and return for investment is now the concern. Solutions have been suggested without any one of them addressing the core of the problem. This kind of round robin state of life dates from ancient days with the worst being the steady growth of these challenges to the point of overlapping success. The quagmire has led to lesser social economic standards of living compared to the global arena and ineffective corporate structures. Bureaucracies have caused slow and inconsistent decision making with poor facilities leading to untraceable tracks of history and hence a blurred future. African society is now showing the hunger for new structures and policies. After the evaluation of the challenges faced by the African communities, it was discussed and found out that new structures need to be put in place to provide new solutions for the existing problems. NFTs have the answer to a lot of these challenges that are prevalent but not limited to: music, photography, transport and ticketing, art and design, construction and fashion, e.t.c. In the resolutions, it was considered prudent to look for stakeholders with the same vision, to benchmark, work and associate. The global Everscale community contains all these qualities and passion; it has become the basis of our desire to engage and transform the community together.


The Africa SG wishes to achieve the following objectives:

A. Activate the Everscale Africa NFT community by creating the African NFT infrastructure…

B. Popularize NFT space within the continent.

C. Create NFT education workshops and advanced classes within the Everscale Africa community. .

D. Introduce NFT marketplace options and create a local market.

Technical Requirements:

Marketplace as Personal Business

We intend to launched an NFT marketplace as our business. To do this, we shall target our audience. What’s more, we have detected challenges that we plan to handle. Those challenges are based on the problems of our continental users.

1. Target Niche

Experts have recommended betting on a vertical market instead of a horizontal one. The first one means that its participants aim to provide goods/services that match the requirements and expectations of a certain category of customers. Amazon and eBay are not the best examples so far as they offer everything to everyone, being horizontal suppliers.

In our marketplace we have decided to focus on artists, musical artists who create their creativity in Africa.

As NFT popularity grows, NFT developers have been busy creating markets for these files. Some current markets are general trading spaces for any category of NFT. Other marketplaces cater to the high-end art world or deal with files related to specific online games or niche topics.

A list of popular NFTs :

  • Digital Artwork
  • Music
  • Clips
  • GIFs
  • Photos
  • Tweets
  • Games
  • Domains
  • Tokens
  • Licenses

2. Propose User Roles

  • Buyers
  • Artists
  • Admins/Moderators

Must-Have Features of NFT Marketplace to Help Us Succeed

Before listing the remaining features, the main reasons why many people get interested in non-fungible tokens and NFT marketplaces in general is because blockchain technologies allow enshrining the rights and making digital assets way simpler to work with. Anyone can also freely trade NFTs.

Other critical features include:

1. Storefront

It is the primary feature. It will contain such info as bids, preview, owners, price history, and more

2. Filters

This functionality is similar to the previous one as the main idea is helping choose the right product fast and effortlessly. It divides all offers into several categories that impact buyer’s decisions in most situations. These will be prices, recent goods, hot offers, best-selling, and more. Users will pick items they need faster, and it increases the probability of buying them.

3. Creating Listings

We shall give the right to customers to develop and send collectibles.They will do that quickly and with no obstacles. We shall generate a page where customers can submit a file, type in the specific item data. Such info as title, tags, and description is a must.

4. Listing Status

Those who offer goods and pass item verification procedures should benefit from this option. It will allow checking the status of the confirmation procedure. This feature will be useful for implementing collectible verification.

5. Bidding Option

Making it possible to both purchase items and bid on them is critical for this project. It intend to attract more users as some are interested in flexible pricing and do not wish to buy collectibles at their starting fees. Bidding is always fun. We shall add an expiration date for an auction feature. Registered participants should have an opportunity to see information about the current status of their bids. It will help them decide whether to buy or keep on placing new bids. An auction watchlist will be like a separate important feature.

6. Wallet

We planned to use and integrate Everscale Wallet:

  • TON(EVER)Crystal Wallet by Broxus extension
  • TON(EVER)Surf
  • extraTON(extension)
  • Oberton
  • Native Token ( Currently in development)

7. Ratings

This characteristic is for newbies. Beginners may have no idea where to start from, how the system works, and how to choose items fast. Having a look at one’s rating to find out whether other users consider this specific seller a reliable one might be enough. Thanks to ratings, the platform’s participants can rate others and provide feedback based on their impressions. It will help others see how credible every user is. Users with the top ratings obtain attractive rewards.

We expect to spend time on this features:

  • UX/UI Development
  • Security
  • User Profiles
  • Main Page
  • Product Page
  • Rating Page
  • Notifications
  • Crypto Integration
  • Buyer/Seller Panel
  • Admin Panel
  • Management (different types)

Business Model

How Will Everscale Africa NFT (EAfrica - temporary name) Marketplace Make Money?

What exactly will be implemented

The service fee is equal to 2.5 percent. Meaning, if an NFT worth 1000 EVER is being sold, then EAfrica gets to keep it . EAfrica provides its marketplace infrastructure completely free of charge. As such, it doesn’t cost anything to list an NFT(only a fee for minting).

Bidding charges – Interested NFT buyers have to pay a specific fee for bidding successfully for the crypto collectible sold on the NFT marketplace. They have to place their offer before the deadline after including details of the lowest price and highest price.

Ideas for discussion

Listing fees – NFT marketplaces act as a hub for thousands of crypto collectibles developed by content creators. They categorize each NFT into different types and display them appropriately. The categories can be divided based on price, demand from investors, and recently added

Affiliate Program – It is an exclusive program for partners of NFT marketplaces. The NFT selling platform charges a specific fee for offering various incentives like real-time sharing of statistics on the demand of crypto collectibles, for conducting airdrop and bounty programs, ensuring the instant creation of auctions, and HTTP API integration for filtering of information related to bids, digital assets, and wallet addresses.

Project Funding

In our initial offering we shall have individual investors that shall support the project upto finalizing of the development stage.

We have outlined continued project support beyond platform development in a seperate document inorder to attract investors and grants.

Below is the total project costs points for the next 6 months as per above mentioned KPI’s .

I fully support the idea of such projects. It looks like a real business project. In general, it is very important to develop the NFT market based on the culture and characteristics of different countries.

This is a wonderful initiative from the community. Africa is hungry for this, an intersection of culture and business. I fully support this, I’m looking forward to seeing it’s development and operation. I’m sure that Africa is a goldmine of culture, and traditional as well as modern art, what will form a building block of the NFT as a business. Again, great initiative!!!

Considering the fact Africa is enriched with enormous cultures as well as artists, the proposal gives room to showcase this not neglecting the business/growth aspect for Everscale as well. Kudos

On the right track. Viva Africa

Considering the rich cultural history of Africa, NFT market place project is long overdue. Anyways it is never late. It is a welcome initiative. I am fully in.

Also full support to the project!

After launching the project, how are you going to promote it? for what budget? or will there be a next request for tokens?

The need for NFT project in Africa for Africans will expose African art creators and designers to fit in the perfectly in the blockchain space. This is a good call and hope to see this come to reality.

there are ready-made projects, take any and optimize for yourself and develop. No need to issue tokens, it’s a waste.

This is a brilliant ideas. This will be a big initiative for everscale as i offers a platform where artists can showcase the value of their work. People will also be able to learn more about African art and culture.
The uniqueness of art creates value.

I really support this idea, because African market has a huge potential not only only for crypto and NFT but also in term of culture. I think it will be an opened door to size the emerging market with its young and dynamic population as well as its diverse culture.

A timely idea whose utility will be very beneficial to upcoming artists amongst others. A very good fit for the everscale nft space! Congratulations to the initiators!

First we thank you for your suggestions and comments and we gladly welcome them.

Therefore, in reply to your concerns;

  1. We wish just to capture NFT tech and onboard African Art to Everscale.
  2. We support all other similar projects in Everscale on NFT. We wish to greatly cooperate with the same once we launch.
  3. We have grants from individuals within the network to kickstart the exercise. We shall engage DeFi Alliance for a grant at a later stage if we think that it is necessary but not before.
  4. What we have indicated in this document is a guide of the costs for the community education only.
  5. The purpose of publishing this initiative was to get the intended consumers comments and support for us to engage the developers and the NFT enthusiasts.
