The future of NFTs is already hyped by its present. Moreover, if the leveraging of the security is based on the Bitcoin network. Bringing in an industry-first approach for minting exclusive art works, Carnival is the first Iberoamerican NFT marketplace to reach this level of security with the help of Rootstock.
Why is Carnival Rocking?
Having Rootstock (RSK) and its own Infrastructure Framework (RIF) as partners, the minting of NFTs on Carnaval happened on March 14th.
It runs on a third layer protocol on Bitcoin. Roostock, an open source platform that hosts decentralized applications and smart contracts, benefits from Bitcoin´s security features. This occurs thanks to merged mining.
RIF, on the other hand, offers its users decentralized protocols and services, built through RSK smart contracts. RIF´s marketplace open-source engine, is a fully audited group of SDK libraries.
It helps reduce a great deal of time to market, for decentralized marketplaces on Bitcoin.
NFTs Are The Party
The global introduction of NFTs triggered an ongoing paradigm shift. Carnaval is aiming to be a leading enabler.
As users reconsider the concept of ¨ownership¨, Carnaval platform will take them to the next level.
Some of these NFTs are going to be linked to physical pieces. Trading digital assets on a marketplace that combines trustworthiness and security, on the Bitcoin platform.
A collection of 210 unique pieces minted as NFTs is on Carnaval´s developers project table.
Curated by Iberoamerican artists, some of these digital NFTs will be related to actual physical pieces.
Sponsors like art museums and galleries, support Carnaval to validate the NFTs, and to help artists mingle with the more traditional art environment. This will allow the digital creators to reach new audiences.
Different wallets compatible with RSK, such as Defiant, are being integrated so that NFTs can be purchased directly with BTC, and/or RBTC. Compatibility is key!

Diego Gutierrez Saldivar commented,
“Carnaval is one of the most exciting projects in the crypto world today. It combines NFTs, Bitcoin, and the most talented artists of Ibero America under one roof. This venture’s aim is also to set together physical and digital art that is highly curated by Carnaval itself and the most respected museums, art collectors, and gallery owners in the world. Carnaval is NFTs 2.0. This is why all those who buy any of the exclusive 210 art pieces from the Bitcoin Genesis Drop at Bitcoin 2022 at the same time will possess a piece of history.”
By April 2022 there will be 2 NFT collection drops. The BTC Genesis Drop with the first 220 minted pieces, and a generative PFP collection, with many benefits for holders.
The first week will be accessible to anyone, but after that Carnival will be invite-only. Up to five invitations per member are possible – so join up!
RSK Makes Blockchain Accessible
RSK is a very secure smart contract platform, adding functionality, near-instant payments, and higher scalability to crypto’s hash power. We need better platforms, and Carnival is delivering.
It is an amazing time to be in cryptos. Things are getting better all the time. For example, up to 100 transactions per second with RIF are possible – and that is rocking!
