Raresama Marketplace - Talent with utility

Raresama is our brand new, exciting, artist and community focused NFT marketplace with great ambitions to quickly become the leading marketplace on Moonbeam in the Polkadot ecosystem.

This magnificent marketplace has been built alongside the community for the community, it is completely decentralised and therefore requires no VC’s.


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 interacted with:

At this exact time, there was also a plethora of talented artists struggling 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.

Community Curated

Raresama will be 100% governed and curated by the community, meaning that all NFTs added to the platform will have been voted in by the community.


For the implementation of this process, the marketplace will have it’s own governance token in the form of $POOP. $POOP will be transferrable and underpins the whole marketplace.


With the platform fully governed by the community, it also empowers decisions to be made for the benefit of development and making Raresama even better for everyone using it. Some preliminary development options are shown here:


Launch collection - Raresama Originals

Raresama premiered with a one off star studded collections curated by Raresama Ambassadors and spearheaded by Yumi Arts, the “Raresama Originals” Launch collection.

This is a highly diverse collection it contains 2D, 3D, voxel, pixel art and even hand-painted traditional artworks. Themes include impressionism, expressionism, abstract, cyberpunk, fantasy and more:


This incredible collection has been auctioned over the first week of launch and includes a total of 39.

Marlua, long-time Dotsama artist on Raresama:

‘All Kusama/Polkadot enthusiasts and artists can’t wait for Raresama. We are having fun with everything Moonsama does and I can’t wait to contribute. The last couple of months were hard and this is something new, an opportunity I want to grab with both hands. Let’s bring that chaos together’


From the sewers of NOVA comes a collection of 3,333 NFT Gromlins a new creature type that will be featured in Battle for Nova.


This collection has been created by Justine Cruz to celebrate the launch of Raresama. These sinister-looking creatures inhabit the sewers beneath NOVA. When they're not fightin' or wheelin' and dealin', they're out looking for love. If you're fortunate enough to find a mate in the Metaverse, you might just breed a Baby Gromlin.

The initial planned Gromlin utility is breeding.

Distribution and trading launch

Gromlins have been airdropped on to Moonsama’s, Artists, Exosama community (TG snapshot) and a few active Raresama community members.

After only 24 hours of trading:

  • 240 individual sales had been made
  • Sales volume had surpassed 320,000 $GLMR
  • 3333 Gromlins were distributed across 1500+ owners


Please note: 100% of the royalties/profit will go to the Moonsama Community Fund.

Moonsama Community Fund

The Moonsama Community Fund or MCF, which has been voted in by the Moonsama community, will be utilised to incentivise community engagement via the accustomed Moonsama Carnage mechanism.

All GLMR profits (100% of Fee’s) generated by Raresama NFT marketplace sales will go to the Moonsama Community Fund (MCF).

Raresama in action → Dogs in Thailand

Currently in Thailand there are over one million stray dogs, also known as soi dogs.

Moonsama is starting a charity foundation to help support and save thousands of these dogs by tokenising them on-chain and then offering them on Raresama as equipable NFTs

These NFTs will then be used to generate a sustainable fundraising mechanism for food, neutering, vaccinations and shelter. The dog NFTs can be equipped onto Moonsama’s/EXO’s.

This is utility like you’ve never seen before.


Joining Raresama as an Artist

If you’ve a talent for creating Art and can’t wait to showcase this to the Raresama community and join - please sit tight a little longer!

Following on from the initial launch collections selling out, the marketplace will go live with personal profiles and you will then be able to mint your first NFTs on the platform. These will all be voted in by the community.

User account types on Raresama

There are three different types of user accounts on Raresama:

  • Anonymous/general user:

This involves the registration of your wallet address to a unique username. You sign in with your wallet and can vote, that’s it! No other things can be changed/added.

  • Creator:

This account involves a fee in $POOP and be able to create your own user profile letting you add a profile picture, cover image, description and promo link. This tier will also allow you to mint NFTs.

  • Verified:

This level of account is similar to the blue checkmark system within Twitter. To get to this stage, you need to stake a certain amount of POOP and get curated. Curation is simply putting your profile up for voting and the community decides with POOP whether you are worthy.

Raresama Purchase Types

The Raresama marketplace runs on the Moonbeam network and all works of art are priced in $GLMR. Buying and selling can take place using two different mechanisms.

Both are explained below:

Showdown/Live Auctions

The first NFT sale option available on Raresama is the use of Auctions via the showdown mechanism.


Key feature of this auction mechanism is that if a bid is placed in within 5 mins before the end of the auction, the timer extends to allow for more bidding. This will eliminate sniping, bring in a healthy competitive action and ensure a fair and true price in the sale of all NFTs.

Buy Now

Another, more traditional, Raresama NFT sale option is “Buy now”. It is used for bigger collections such as Gromlins.


To use this purchase option navigate to the detail page of the NFT of your choosing and then simply select the ‘Buy now’ option as show below.


In the above example you can see that the seller to set an ‘offer end’ of just over 2 days and 23 hours. Setting “offer end” is quite common and provides a time limit to buy the NFT for the listed price.

Once the time limit expires the NFT will be listed as “Closed” and not available for purchase:
