What’s a marketplace and how it works?

In two words, the marketplace is the place where you can benefit from selling your cool cats or from buying more cats for your collection at the offered price.

It basically works as a kind of auction: the seller offers an item for the asking price, and a buyer can agree with it and pay the full price or provide a seller with an incoming offer, defining a big price for the item. That said, everyone gets its benefits.

How to check Cool Cats available in the marketplace

For both, selling and buying Cool Cats to your collection, you need to open the Marketplace. To do so, click on the Marketplace tab in the upper part of the webpage

Once you do that, you can see all the listed kitties.

Don’t forget to use filters and sorting options to adjust the search result.

How to buy a Cool Cat

All the available Cool Cats are having a party in the Marketplace. Open it and use filters to search for the poshest Cat for your collection!

Once you’ve found it, click on the cat’s profile to see its properties: body type, hat type, rarity rank, tier, and ask price, defined by the current cat owner.

From now on you have 2 options:

  • you can click on the green Buy button to proceed with the purchase. In this case, you will pay the amount, request by the cat-seller (500 000 000 TRX, in case)
  • you can suggest your price to the cat-seller by clicking on the Bid button.

If you opt for the instant purchase, then you will just need to confirm the action in your TRX wallet, and voilá, the cat is yours! 🎉

If you go for the second option, then you run a risk to miss the cat, in case someone has a better option or the seller doesn’t agree with your offer.

How the bid price is formed?

The bid price is the price offered by a buyer for the chosen item.

You, are a buyer can suggest basically any price, however, keeping in mind the following rules:

  • a Cool Cat can never cost under 5 000 TRX;
  • your bid price should be higher than the current bid price suggested for the Cat.

To check the current bid price, have a look at the BID line right under the asking price.

In the Tron Cool Card card, you can only see the highest bid. That said, all the bids below the current one will not be accepted by the system.

How to make a bid?
