To better support NFT builders, Coinbase Cloud and Chainlink Labs are partnering to launch NFT Floor Pricing Feeds.

Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) have seen a period of explosive growth in the last few years, with a combined current market capitalization of over  $2B. However, infrastructure for the non-fungible asset economy hasn’t caught up with growing demand. Builders in the NFT economy need accurate and reliable real-time market data to improve their products. This requires a solid foundation of robust market data solutions and reliable trust-minimized infrastructure. Trust-minimized data feeds extend blockchain functionality by connecting smart contracts to real-world data, events, payments, and off-chain computation.

What are NFT Floor Pricing Feeds?

NFT floor prices are important because they represent the lowest purchase price for an NFT within a collection. Chainlink NFT Floor Pricing Feeds make the latest NFT pricing data easily accessible to developers. By providing accurate, real-world data around the price of NFTs, developers will be able to  create and deploy new DeFi use cases. 

“We are excited about this partnership between Coinbase and Chainlink. We’re bridging the gap between transparency and security in the NFT space by bringing reliable and timely on-chain NFT Floor Pricing Feeds for the top NFT collections to the Web3 world.” – Michael Li, VP Data, Coinbase

How does it work?

The NFT Floor Pricing feeds use Coinbase Cloud’s NFT pricing algorithm. The algorithm scans every NFT transaction in the collection across major marketplaces, eliminates outliers, estimates the current floor price, and updates floor price estimates as new transactions come on-chain. The pricing algorithm is powered by Coinbase Cloud’s NFT API, which has a free version available to use today. Together, this data feeds into a collection of Chainlink Data Feeds tracking the floor prices of the top 10 NFT collections with high-quality pricing data and an optimal liquidity profile. 

Chainlink is bringing this NFT market data to the web3 ecosystem, starting with Ethereum. 

What’s available today?

The NFT Floor Pricing Feeds feature the following collections: Bored Ape Yacht Club, CryptoPunks, CloneX, World of Women, Doodles, Mutant Ape Yacht Club, Azuki, VeeFriends, CrypToadz, and CoolCats.

The NFT Floor Pricing Feeds are supported by Coinbase Cloud’s on-chain aggregation algorithm and Chainlink’s battle-tested oracle infrastructure that help eliminate extreme price outliers, making the feeds resistant to market manipulation.

Developers can use the NFT Floor Pricing Feeds for a wide range of smart contract use cases that rely on high-quality NFT data including: 

  • Lending & Borrowing: Power on-chain financial applications such as decentralized lending markets that allow  web3 users to collateralize their NFTs.

  • Index Creation: Use weighted market-cap indices of the top 10 NFT bluechip collections to track the market performance of the NFT market.

  • Prediction Markets: Accelerate NFT prediction markets by allowing exchange-traded markets to connect financial incentives to the trading outcomes of the NFT/token pairs.

  • dNFTs: Enable a whole new class of dynamic NFTs by changing the appearance/functionality of traits based on conditional logic connected to the floor price of a NFT collection.
