INVITE ONLY / GATEKEEPER MARKETPLACES
These platforms have some of the largest audiences and highest prices, however gate keeping and invite only marketplaces philosophically go against the ethos of blockchain in its purest sense. Some of these marketplaces have plans to become more open and accessible in the future. Curated marketplaces may also be more suitable for specific types of artists and projects especially those with massive audiences.
