Nifty Gateway

Nifty Gateway is a marketplace for NFT's and digital items.

Founded in 2018 by brothers Duncan and Griffin Cock Foster, Nifty Gateway facilitates nifty purchases for popular crypto-games and applications. With Nifty Gateway, users can purchase NFTs directly with fiat currency using their credit card, like a normal online purchase, making NFTs accessible to anyone.

Nifty Gateway also gives decentralized application (dApp) and game developers a powerful and intuitive suite of tools that simplifies the process of selling nifties. For dApps and games leveraging Nifty Gateway, NFTs are priced in U.S. dollars. This lowers the barrier to entry for interested users because they don't need to own cryptocurrency to acquire and use NFTs and their associated unique digital assets.
