SEONGNAM, South Korea – November 8, 2022 – LINE NEXT Inc., LINE’s venture dedicated to developing and expanding the NFT ecosystem, announced today that it has opened its consumer-to-consumer (C2C) marketplace on the global NFT platform DOSI. With the opening of the C2C trading service, users around the world can buy or sell NFTs purchased from brand stores with other users.
On the DOSI C2C marketplace, the Hellbound store is the first store open for users, with other DOSI stores scheduled to be added in the future. DOSI’s marketplace offers a simplified transaction process, so that anyone can quickly learn how to use it. Once users connect the DOSI Wallet to a MetaMask wallet, they can use Ethereum to buy or sell NFTs with just few clicks.
Ethereum can also be used as a payment method in the various DOSI stores, along with credit cards, Naver Pay and other payment services. Additionally, LINE NEXT plans to add more crypto assets and mobile payment services in each region, demonstrating its global leadership in developing user-friendly NFT markets. Details about payment methods and DOSI Citizen can be found on the DOSI website (https://dosi.world).
