Artists and NFT projects are constantly releasing new collections to capitalize on the industry's hype. While some of these collections lack utility and serve only to fuel speculative mania, a few dominant collections control the majority of the NFT market share. Collections like BAYC, Mutant Apes, Otherdeed, and CryptoPunks, curated by Yuga Labs, have a combined market cap of 2.3M ETH, worth over $3B in just a month. With the rising floor prices of these rare premium NFT collections, how can an average NFT enthusiast or collector participate?
Fractionalization provides an avenue for individuals with smaller budgets to enter the market. In this article, we outline five key benefits of buying fractional NFTs.
1. Co-ownership of Rare Premium NFTs and Thriving Community Engagement
Rare premium NFTs offer unique experiences and utility to their holders. However, their high prices often make them inaccessible to most NFT traders. Only a few rare premium NFTs are held by a limited number of individuals compared to the total number of unique wallets holding NFTs. Many NFT enthusiasts miss out on the opportunities presented by rare premium NFTs. Fractionalization addresses this issue by democratizing access to these exclusive assets. Buying a fractional NFT grants ownership and allows holders to join a growing and thriving community. It also opens up the possibility of unlocking similar opportunities or experiences available to whole NFT owners.
2. Fair Market Value Pricing
The value of NFTs is largely influenced by subjective and unquantifiable factors such as cultural and historical relevance, creator's brand value, and community sentiment. Coupled with low trade velocity, it becomes challenging to ascertain the fair or objective value of an NFT. Fractionalization increases the number of market participants by enabling multiple buyers to own fractions of an NFT, thereby increasing trading velocity. Quantix's vAMM facilitates the purchase of NFTs at fair market value, providing a transparent and efficient marketplace.

The challenge of defining fair value for an NFT is limited to the limited number of market participants. NFT fractionalization increases the number of market participants by enabling multiple buyers to buy an NFT thereby increasing the trading velocity. This is easily achieved through the Quantix vAMM, where buyers can buy NFTs at fair market value.
3. Easy Exit Strategies
The limited liquidity in the NFT market poses challenges when it comes to selling an NFT. Peer-to-peer market arrangements are often inefficient. Fractionalized NFTs, on the other hand, enable buyers to exit their positions quickly. With a larger pool of market players trading the fractionalized NFTs as regular fungible tokens, liquidity is significantly enhanced. For example, the fractionalized version of "The Doge NFT" was bought by 1796 buyers during its auction, and it currently has 9641 unique wallet holders, with a market cap of $18.64M and liquidity of $4.52M.

4. Access to Financial Opportunities
The financialization of NFTs opens up exciting opportunities, particularly for premium NFTs. Fractionalized NFTs, being fungible like ERC-20 tokens on Ethereum, enable holders to tap into services such as lending, staking, yield farming, and more. Previously, these opportunities were accessible only to whole NFT owners.
5. Portfolio Diversification
Traders seeking portfolio diversification can explore fractionalized NFTs. Fractional NFTs offer a lower capital risk compared to buying a whole NFT, thanks to the lower cost of acquisition and ease of sale or exit. Moreover, fractionalized NFTs provide extractable value through participation in decentralized finance offerings. Traders can build attractive and diversified portfolios comprising various fractionalized NFTs and even traditional fungible assets like ETH and BTC.
