Introducing: Mavis Market!
Ronin’s First Generalized NFT Marketplace is Live 🛠️
Mavis Market – Ronin’s first generalized NFT Marketplace – is LIVE!
RON is the official currency of Mavis Market. You can pay in AXS, SLP, ETH and it will be swapped to RON on the backend through Katana.
The marketplace fee structure allows creators to set their own royalties. Sky Mavis receives a 2% fee for maintenance and the Ronin Treasury receives 0.5%. Creator royalties can now be guaranteed at the protocol level.
Fill out this form if you’re interested in launching your NFT project on Ronin. Mavis Market is now in an early stage of development and we will open it up to more projects over time.
We’re thrilled to announce that Mavis Market is now LIVE!
Anyone, anywhere can now buy and sell NFTs listed on Mavis Market. This is a powerful new tool for game developers and brings us one step closer to Ronin’s destiny as the premier Web3 gaming blockchain.

More than a Marketplace
Mavis Market is more than a marketplace: it’s key to enabling infinite experiences on Ronin. In March, we shared our vision to become every gamer’s go-to blockchain when we announced partnerships with Directive Games, Tribes Studio, Bali Games, SkyVu, and Bowled.io. Today, we’re taking the next step towards giving these builders– and others – the tools they need to give life to the best blockchain gaming experiences. The Mavis Market is a crucial piece of infrastructure that enables monetization for Web 3 games through both primary sales and secondary market activity. In the future, we envision Mavis Market becoming a coveted launchpad for game studios and their associated NFT collections.
For now, we will take a curated approach to listing NFTs on the Mavis Market – ensuring that projects we highlight live up the noble ideals of this global movement.
RON Is Money
On Mavis Market, listings will appear in RON and you’ll be able to buy NFTs with any token available on Ronin including AXS, WETH, USDC, and RON. The Katana DEX will perform any necessary swaps through the backend for a simple and intuitive trading experience. Axie NFTs from Sky Mavis will continue to be listed on App.axie.
Fee and Royalty Structure
We designed the Mavis Marketplace Fee Structure to align incentives between creators, Sky Mavis, and the Ronin network. That’s why creators can set their own fee percentages for their work while Sky Mavis receives a fixed fee for building and maintaining the marketplace. These splits will allow us to develop the best marketplace possible for as many users as possible. We’ll explain the .5% fee for the Ronin network below.
In the big picture, Ronin’s .5% fee rewards the owners of the network – RON holders, stakers, and validators. Similar to the Katana protocol fee, these fees will go directly to the Ronin Treasury.
This is the first time that a Blockchain will receive a portion of an NFT marketplace fee: it’s the equivalent of an NFT marketplace on Ethereum giving a portion of its fee to Ethereum itself!
RON is now accruing value from:
Utility as payment for gas
Ownership of Katana dex’s .05% fee
Mavis Market’s .5% fee
We’ve made this precedent-setting decision because we believe in aligning incentives between decentralized applications and the protocols they build on.
Let’s talk about Creator royalties.
On many chains we’re seeing a race to the bottom and the inability to enforce royalties for NFT creators. This has become an obstacle to sustainability for many NFT projects.
With the launch of Mavis Market on Ronin, Creator royalties can now be ensured and guaranteed at the protocol level. This works because contract deployment on Ronin requires whitelist access, preventing mercenary marketplaces from deploying and eliminating minimum royalties for builders.
Ronin’s protocol-enforced royalty serves in sharp contrast to the royalty wars and fee race to the bottom that we’ve observed on other chains.
The First Collections on Mavis Market
We’re excited to welcome Axie DoLL and Axie Chat as the creators of the first collections on Mavis Market! It’s fitting that the first projects listed on the Mavis Market come from committed missionaries who have been tirelessly working towards a stronger, more engaging Ronin ecosystem.
Starting today, you can buy Axie DoLL Sidekicks and AxieChat Premium 2023 NFTs. Here’s everything you need to know about these collections:
Axie DoLL Sidekicks
Axie DoLL: Defenders of Lunacian Land launched in December of 2022 from our Axie Builder’s Program and became an instant hit with the Axie community. It’s an exhilarating survival action game that’s easy to play yet hard to master. Starting today, you’ll be able to buy and sell Axie DoLL Sidekicks on Mavis Market! These little buddies are cosmetic-only for now, and have varying rarities. 80% of the funds raised will go to the Axie DoLL team while 20% will go to the winners of Axie DoLL’s Gen2 Sidekick Football Cup!
And now a message from the team:
“Defenders of Lunacian Lands (Axie DoLL) is very proud to be the first project to represent the Axie Builders Program as an indie game developer to have its first ever NFT deployed on the Ronin blockchain and listed on Mavis Market on launch day!
The Sidekicks NFT was first introduced during AxieCon 2022 and Generation 1 sold out within 3 days thanks to the incredible Axie Community! Sidekicks currently serve a primarily cosmetic role in Axie DoLL, but we are actively exploring how they will fit into the gameplay and lore! Time will tell how these strange but trustworthy creatures take on the path of the Ronin to become their own masters!”

AxieChat Premium 2023 NFTs
AxieChat is a podcast about the Axie universe launched by prominent and influential community member Baronar in 2020. Members must own a Premium 2023 NFT to access the members-only portion of AxieChat which includes a weekly private discussion about all things Axie, access to the members-only channels in the AxieChat Discord, and a front row seat to creating the AxieChat Homeland Guild with Baronar!
Here’s what Baronar had to say about today’s release:
“AxieChat is incredibly excited to be an early test case for the next phase of Ronin! The Mavis Market launches the potential for a robust diversity of NFTs using Ronin. For AxieChat, this puts the membership NFT exactly where it belongs, Ronin! And for me personally, this is truly a welcome surprise. I look forward with much anticipation to the well curated projects that will land in the Mavis Market!”
In 2021, we embarked on a quest to build a blockchain that would allow Axie to reach its infinite potential. Since then, we’ve become the #2 blockchain of all-time by total NFT volume second only to Ethereum. We will continue to forge ahead and ship relentlessly as we fulfill our destiny of becoming the premier Web3 gaming blockchain in the world. Today’s launch opens the door to infinite possibilities on Ronin – let’s keep pushing and building together.
