Patrn is not a marketplace. Patrn mints NFTs via crowdsourcing. Patrons can like verified artist's content with ETH. If the artist's goal meets their fundraising goal, the content is minted as an NFT and distributed to all participating addresses. Once your NFT is received, you can sell it on Open Sea or other popular marketplaces.

NFTs are batch minted using the ERC-1155 Multi-Token Standard and uploaded to IPFS. They are then distributed to participating addresses when the artist meets their fundraising goal.
