Leading open-source and multi-chain NFT protocol, Rarible Protocol has announced it will integrate with Immutable X’s Layer 2 (L2) scaling solution on Ethereum. 


The integration will enable gaming NFT projects and collectibles to trade gaming NFTs on Ethereum through Immutable X with reduced gas fees and environmental impact.

NFT developers and creators can also access a decentralized exchange, NFT minting and smart contracts, and an open-source NFT indexer compatible with Ethereum, Tzeos, Flow, Polygon and Solana Blockchains for launching NFT marketplaces. 


Immutable X is developed using Immutable’s in-depth knowledge of Blockchain gaming and StarkWare’s bleeding-edge zk-rollup technology. As a result, Rarible’s integration with Immutable X will offer new opportunities for gaming NFT projects and collectibles to launch or drop within Rarible’s ecosystem while benefiting from Immutable X’s low gas fees and carbon neutral economy. Users will also enjoy high transaction speeds and Ethereum’s high security. 


‘The NFT industry's ongoing growth presents endless opportunities for creators, collectors, and developers. But to enjoy the best experience, ecosystem participants must be able to seamlessly explore and engage with the various communities and projects across the expansive blockchain space,’ said Rarible’s co-Founder and chief strategy officer, Alex Salnikov. ‘Rarible's integration with Immutable X marks a significant milestone in our roadmap to become the leading multi-chain NFT marketplace and protocol offering enhanced interoperability across NFT communities. We are thrilled to now be able to offer the Rarible community access to the many thriving collections and projects across the Immutable X ecosystem.’ 


Among the benefits of the integration is Rarible’s ability to access Immutable X’s orderbook, which means developers building their projects on Rarible Protocol and Rarible NFT marketplace users can tap into existing and emerging content powered by Immutable X. The partnership aims to enhance long-term liquidity on its platforms. 


‘We are beyond excited to announce one of our largest marketplace integrations to date with Rarible. Every game and trade on Immutable will now be accessible to Rarible's million monthly users,’ said Immutable’s co-founder, Robbie Ferguson. ‘This is a landmark step for Immutable's open orderbook and I could not be more thrilled to work with the Rarible team in enabling the world to trade gaming assets and more on L2 Ethereum.’
