NftyTribe Mainnet Launch: Empowering African Creators and Enabling Physical to Digital Connections.

2 min readJan 26, 2023


We are excited to announce the upcoming mainnet launch of NftyTribe NFT Marketplace!

NftyTribe is a multi-chain marketplace (powered by $afen) designed to provide both traditional and digital African creators with unique tools and resources to reach global audiences. Alongside development efforts, and with 300+ NFTs already traded on BNB Chain, we are now collaborating with various African NFT creators and projects towards relaunching NftyTribe as multi-chain.

NftyTribe is further integrating Topship to enable creators seamlessly ship physical art items or collectibles tied to their NFTs, across over 200 cities around the world. This is a game-changer as it makes it possible for African creators with physical commissions to truly sell 1/1 NFTs .

“We strongly believe that to access a newer market for NFTs, a connection to physical items is required to bring in those who have been sidelined due to the purely digital nature of NFTs. With our process, for example, creators with physical commissions can truly create 1/1 NFTs, and seamlessly send the physical item across to the NFT collector,” said the CEO of AFEN — Deborah Ojengbede.

Upcoming Activation Event:

To showcase the creativity, innovation, and potential of the African creative space, NftyTribe mainnet will be launched with an exhibition event to showcase creators on NftyTribe — both established and emerging. The event will feature both physical art commissions and collectibles, as well as digital art, providing a platform for artists to reach new audiences, and an opportunity to connect with African art lovers and collectors.

The exhibition will also highlight the importance of decentralization, empowerment, and authenticity in the art world, promoting the work of artists who are using NFTs and other cutting-edge technologies to take control of their work. Visitors will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a variety of interactive exhibits that allow them to engage with African art in new and exciting ways.

The theme of the exhibition event — ‘The Next 100x’ reflects the idea that African artists are not only pushing the limits of what has been done before, but they are also creating new frontiers for the future of art. Whether you are a collector, an artist, or simply someone with an interest in the future of art, this exhibition is not to be missed!

The NftyTribe NFT marketplace is set to launch this Q1 of 2023. Details of the launch event will be announced soon.
