Maxim Magazine Launches Its NFT Marketplace Together With xSigma, a Subsidiary of Nasdaq: ZKIN
xSigma, a blockchain R&D lab and subsidiary of ZK International (Nasdaq: ZKIN), is excited to announce the launch of their all-new, official non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace, MaximNFT.com. The platform is launched in partnership with Maxim, a legendary men’s magazine available in 75 countries. The burgeoning marketplace will grant exclusive access to Maxim’s own NFT collections.
Maxim’s Brand Meets xSigma’s Top Talent
The partnership behind the project combines Maxim’s prestigious brand name with xSigma’s world-class software development capabilities.
Maxim is a 25-year old men’s lifestyle magazine, covering the world’s finest cars, sharpest clothing, top travel destinations, and most beautiful women. Their content connects with over 10 million men across 75 countries every month, and their covers have featured dozens of female celebrities such as Shakira, Angelina Jolie, Megan Fox, and more.
xSigma is ZK International’s R&D lab for building blockchain-based infrastructure and supply-chain technology solutions, while also developing their own DeFi, NFT, and stablecoin based products. Their highly capable team features former developers of Google, Facebook, and Ripple Labs.
MaximNFT will allow users to buy, sell, and easily create NFTs across numerous top blockchain platforms. These include Ethereum, Polkadot, and the Binance Smart Chain.
Together, Maxim will attract a large user base to the MaximNFT marketplace using their numerous print, social, and digital publishing outlets. Meanwhile, MaximNFT will be operated by xSigma, whose team will develop never-before-seen marketplace features alongside a stellar user experience.
One of these features includes “NFT tokenization”, an innovative new tool allowing traders to exchange mere fractions of any NFT in the market. This will change the status quo of NFTs in which all NFTs are completely unique assets, and allow the same digital commodities to be shared across the crypto community.
Maxim will be entering this growing digital space with a collection of various high-value NFTs from popular brands, celebrities, and superstar athletes – all soon to be announced.
The marketplace goes live this fall. Subscribe to the waitlist here to get the latest updates about exclusive NFT drops on MaximNFT.
Maxim’s Contribution to NFTs
Maxim’s new NFT marketplace will focus on providing sports, celebrity, and gaming-themed digital collectibles to their community. They predict that in-game interaction with NFTs will be a game-changing phenomenon, and so plan to infuse AR and VR technologies into their future NFTs.
Maxim enters the NFT market in response to a clear trend toward the technology’s mass adoption. Q1 of 2021 saw $1.5 billion in NFT transaction volume, according to Dappradar. Furthermore, data from NonFungible.com suggests that monthly NFT sales volume soared to $896 million last month. Most surprisingly, an NFT collection of cartoon-style apes recently sold for over $20 million.
Maxim is a world-leading men’s magazine of 25 years. Available in 75 countries, read by 10 million men every month, Maxim’s covers have featured dozens of female celebrities including Angelina Jolie, Megan Fox, Shakira, Beyonce, Jessica Alba, Lana del Ray and others.
The blockchain R&D lab xSigma Corporation is a subsidiary of ZK International (Nasdaq: ZKIN). In 2018, ZK International established xSigma as a research and development lab to address real-world infrastructure issues. The group has since evolved into an independent blockchain R&D lab developing NFT, DeFi, stablecoin, and supply chain technology solutions. The team includes former engineers from Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Ripple Labs.
