We’re thrilled to share that the SmartMint Rainier Upgrade is now live! This release brings a host of enhancements to SmartMint, solidifying its position as a premier NFT creation and management platform. Here’s a closer look at the key features:

Integration with Binance Smart Chain: Expanding Accessibility

SmartMint now seamlessly integrates with Binance Smart Chain, opening up new possibilities for users and broadening our reach. This integration enhances accessibility and provides a more inclusive environment for NFT creators.

Enhanced NFT Features through Pastel Network’s Sense and Cascade Protocols

The Rainier Release presents an array of advanced NFT features through the integration of Sense and Cascade. This not only guarantees heightened rarity for NFTs but also augments the security of storage capabilities.

A brief overview of Sense and Cascade.

Sense, a pioneering solution by Pastel, tackles fraud and copymint concerns through an innovative near-duplicate detection system. It evaluates the relative rarity of NFTs using sophisticated ML algorithms, ensuring the authenticity and uniqueness of your work.

Cascade serves as a decentralized storage layer, offering genuine NFT permanence on the blockchain. Forget about dealing with the intricacies of IPFS or Arweave, or worrying about recurring fees for centralized hosting services. With Cascade, your NFTs are securely stored on-chain.

In essence, SmartMint not only provides a user-friendly and straightforward experience but also delivers top-tier NFT security, copymint protection, and permanent storage.

Optimized Smart Contracts: Democratizing NFT Creation

In our commitment to making NFT creation more accessible, we’ve optimized Smart Contracts to increase efficiency and reduce gas fees. This move towards cost-effectiveness democratizes the NFT creation process, making it easier for a broader audience to participate in the world of digital art.

Stay tuned for more releases coming soon….

This release is a significant leap forward for SmartMint, positioning it as a powerful and user-friendly platform for NFT creation and management. The Rainier Release empowers creators and collectors alike, ushering in a new era of possibilities in the NFT space. Stay tuned for more updates and explore the limitless potential of SmartMint!
