Mint Square NFT Marketplace Shuts Down

Mint Square did not offer an explanation for why it was shutting the marketplace down. It could possibly be because of poor performance. There have been several NFT marketplaces that have shut down in recent times.

In February, WazirX shut down its NFT marketplace because of poor traction. Around the same time, the Solana NFT marketplace Formfunction also shuttered. Then there’s CNN, the broadcaster which abandoned its NFT project late last year.

Mint Square is an NFT marketplace that runs on Ethereum layer-2 ZK-rollups-based networks like StarkNet and zkSync Era.

Being on a layer-2 network, NFTs on Mint Square were cheaper and were confirmed faster. Top collections on Mint Square include Stark Agents, Starkpunks, and StarkRock.
