They keep coming, so we’ll keep announcing them! KSM Starter is thrilled to share a glimpse into its third IDO event, LUXY — an upcoming state of the art NFT marketplace to premier on Polygon. It exists to cater the need for accessible, scalable, easy to use, and inexpensive NFTs.

Luxy Overview

Boasting blue chip partners such as Polygon, Syscoin, and BlockDesk, the LUXY token will be the backbone of an NFT marketplace soon to launch on Polygon.

The token will bring advanced perks and benefits such as early access to NFT drops, reduced marketplace fees, DeFi Staking incentives, NFT voting, ad space, platform governance, and access to whitelabel solutions.

Through generous incentives such as reducing buying and selling fees from 2% to 0.25%, the platform makes LUXY token the core of its ecosystem and encourages token price stability, and the price’s natural growth alongside the platform’s adoption.

Below are specifics of the LUXY Tier System:

In perhaps unparalleled token design, LUXY takes deflationary tokenomics to the next level; a full 50% of all UXY tokens will be burned until 50mil LUXY Tokens of the 100 total are removed from circulation.

The burning will happen via two avenues:

  • 100% of all fees earned via the marketplace in LUXY token will be sent to the burn address 0x000000000000000000000000000000000000dEaD. So this means that any services, buy/sells that are paid with LUXY Token, the fees generated from this will be burnt.
  • 25% of all fees collected via all other payment forms, will be used to buy back LUXY from the market and sent to the burn address 0x000000000000000000000000000000000000dEaD.

The Future of NFTs on Polygon

If NFTs are early in general, then they are yet to even begin on Polygon. Currently, NFT trading volume on Polygon looks a lot like it did before major brands like Bored Ape Yacht Club drew buyers in droves to NFT marketplaces on Ethereum like OpenSea.

As of October, there were just forty-four collections based on Polygon with one ETH or more in total volume and only three Polygon NFT collections with over fifty ETH in volume. Both of which are absolute fractions of the NFT volume that is bound to come to Polygon, given its faster and infinitely cheaper transaction costs.

NFTs will need a home, a marketplace on which they can be traded; and none are better positioned to assume this responsibility than LUXY, which solely exists to cater the need for accessible, scalable, easy to use, and inexpensive NFTs.

Accessible NFT Sales

They believe that NFTs should be accessible to everyone, and so designed LUXY for ease use while keeping fees low. Through the LUXY platform, community members will be able to create both auctions and listings while receiving royalties for all NFT sales.


They will be launching on Polygon and integrate Syscoin when their NEVM Layer is launched. To LUXY, users are their number one priority and so they plan to offer integration of the best blockchains out there that are environmentally friendly, scalable, have low fees and are secure..

True Ownership

All transactions on LUXY happen on chain level with trustless trading every step of the way.

Environmentally Friendly

Unique to LUXY, NFTs on their platform are environmentally friendly, as they only integrate green blockchains like Syscoin which recycle mining power from Bitcoin.
