What is Mintable?

Founded in 2018 by Zach Burks, Mintable is a platform where users can mint, buy and sell NFTs. Safe to say now you have an idea where it gets its name from. Minting is the process of verifying information on the blockchain.

If you have no clue what NFTs are, they are a type of cryptographic token that have their value pegged to real-world objects like art, music, videos and in-game items. NFT is short for non-fungible token. Compared to cryptocurrencies, NFTs come with unique markers that distinguish them from each other.
