NFTs (non-fungible tokens) are one of the best examples of crypto and blockchain technology gaining mainstream adoption. NFTs can be used to represent both digital and physical artworks, digital collectibles like sports player cards, avatars used in online worlds, and so much more.
If you’re interested in NFTs, the easiest way to get started is to go to an NFT marketplace and explore the different NFTs that are available. If you want to buy and collect NFTs, you’ll also have to set up a cryptocurrency wallet that supports the blockchain network of the NFT in question.
More specifically, we will be focusing on how to search NFTs on Binance NFT to find NFTs that we’re interested in. The Binance NFT marketplace provides some very helpful filtering options that make it easy to find exactly what you’re looking for.
The first step is to create an account on Binance. Beyond NFTs, this will also give you access to a plethora of crypto trading services, as well as crypto lending and staking products. Please note that you’ll have to verify your identity before you’re allowed to use Binance services—this is necessary for the exchange to comply with regulations.
Create Binance Account
After your account on Binance is ready, head over to the Binance NFT section and select “Explore”.
You’ll be greeted with a list of NFTs that are available for purchase on Binance NFT. Some will be offered at a fixed price, while others will be sold through an auction.
If you want to organize the NFTs you see, you can select between different sorting options. For example, you can choose to prioritize the most recently listed NFTs or the NFTs with the most favorites. Some of these options are more useful than others. For example, sorting by highest price first isn’t very useful, as some users will list their NFTs at extremely high prices as a way to get attention.
If you really know what you’re looking for, you can simply use the search bar to search for specific NFT collections or creators. For example, here we can see the profile of a creator, where we can find the NFTs they have collected, created and favorited.
Find NFTs by using filters
If you want to get more specific in your search, enable the “Filters” option in towards the top of the interface.
The Binance NFT platform provides multiple filters you can use to narrow down your search.
In this section, you can toggle between seeing NFTs in verified or unverified collections. Binance NFT tags some collections as Verified Collections based on factors such as sales volume, trading volume, and number of social media followers. In other words, a collection needs to have some popularity before it’s tagged as a Verified Collection.
However, the verified tag by itself shouldn’t be interpreted as an endorsement from the platform—you should still do your own research if you’re interested in buying any particular NFT as an investment.
Here, you can select to view collections based on their sale status. There’s four options available:
- Buy Now: See NFTs that can be bought immediately for a fixed price
- Live Auction: See NFTs that are currently being sold through an auction
- Has Offers: See NFTs that have at least one buy offer
- Coming Soon: See NFTs that will be available for purchase soon
The Binance NFT marketplace supports three types of currency. BNB (BNB), Binance USD (BUSD) and Ethereum (ETH). In this section, you can toggle available NFTs based on the currency they’re being sold for. You can also select the minimum and maximum price you’re interested in. For example, you could choose to only view NFTs that are being sold for between 50 BUSD and 100 BUSD.
In this section, you can limit your search to specific NFT collections. You can manually input the collection’s name, or scroll down the list of available collections.
Here’s an example of using multiple filters to narrow down our search. We’re searching for NFTs that are coming soon, are being sold for at least 2 BNB, and belong to the collection The CR7 NFT Collection.
See the most popular NFTs using the leaderboard
If you go to the “Stats” section of the Binance NFT marketplace, you can explore the most popular NFT collections. The default view is “Top Collections”, which will show you the NFT collections with the highest trading volume in the specified time period. For example, we can see that the most popular NFT collection at the time of writing is Bored Ape Yacht Club, with 1,269 ETH worth of volume in the last 24 hours.
If you’re interested in the leaderboards for a specific blockchain, you can select it in the navigation bar. Currently, the two supported blockchains by Binance NFT are Ethereum and BNB Chain.
In this section, you can also view leaderboards for the top individual NFTs, mystery boxes and creators.
Dive deeper with analytics
If you wish to know more about a specific NFT collection, you can go over to the “Analytics” tab. Here, you will be able to see the collection’s trading volume and the average price of its items, the fluctuation of the collection’s floor price, as well as the range of prices at which items from the collections are available for sale.
The bottom line—find exactly what you’re looking for on Binance NFT
The Binance NFT marketplace provides a wealth of options for finding NFTs. This makes it easy to only focus on NFTs that you’re interested in, or find NFTs that fit your specific criteria. With the leaderboards and analytics sections, you can easily track trends in the NFT markets and see which collections are increasing and volume and floor price, and which collections are falling out of favor with users.
