Raresama, Moonsama's leading NFT marketplace in the Polkadot ecosystem, empowers artists by providing a platform to display and sell their digital creations. With its roots in the Moonbeam and Moonsama network parachains, it aims to be the foremost community-governed marketplace. Artists bring their art to life on Raresama, while Moonsama integrates their work into its expansive metaverse, granting additional benefits to owners. The platform stands as a testament to decentralization and community governance, epitomizing the spirit of the evolving NFT landscape.

The original idea for Raresama had been formed through a happy accident (in parallel with Moonsama) when the team thought how cool would it be to add NFTs into the Pondsama Metaponds for all to see and interact with.
At this exact time, there was also a plethora of talented artists grinding to make sales in the bear market and so the concept for Raresama was born. It provides these artists a new home where they can unleash their creativity and tell their stories plus it would also provide them with long term utility support into Moonsama’s Multiverse.Essentially the premise is simple… They bring their talent, we bring the utility.
Raresama Ignite fuels creativity in the metaverse. The program provides select NFT collections with instant utility, exposure, and support. Learn more on the subpage below.
