What is Paras?

Paras is a Near Protocol-based NFT trading platform focusing on Digital Art Card assets. Artists may use Paras to produce, issue, and exchange NFT goods in the form of tokens. The site is unlike other media NFT Marketplace platforms in that it concentrates on a completely different specialty.

Why is Paras different?

  • Digital Art Card

Instead of focusing on a single commodity like trading properties as Opensea and Rarible do, the initiative concentrates on card collections. In the style of NFT collections, artists might totally release work centered on the 1970s, 1980s, or historical novels, myths. This makes a difference since collectors now have access to the entire “NFT storybook” instead of simply a single NFT product. Paras, on the other hand, continues to allow investors to trade NFTs in the same way as normal Marketplaces do.

  • Bidding

The platform allows users to compete for the chance to buy with others by using Bidding. The sale will be approved as soon as the seller agrees. This is another aspect that draws consumers to Paras; as more people buy, the product becomes more valuable and attracts more customers’ attention.

  • Optimized transaction quality

For being built on the Near Protocol and IPFS/Filecoin, Paras inherited the advantage of transaction speed and fee. Instead of waiting hours for transactions to finish like with ERC-20, users will be able to adjust their delivery quality.

  • Staking

Holders can Stake Paras and earn part of the revenue from Marketplace.

  • DAO

Holders can participate in voting for feature changes or product updates.


Token use cases

  • Governance: PARAS Holders can participate in voting project development proposals.
  • Staking to earn Rarity Points: These points are used to upgrade cards, helping to improve the user-friendly interface.
  • Priority access to exclusive deals and events.
  • Users can use PARAS to purchase limited, exclusive NFTs.
