Supporting New and Upcoming Artists
Here at Gamma, we recognize that the Stacks community has one of the most diverse and talented groups of NFT artists out there. As we work to improve our platform, we're taking action to listen to your feedback and integrate solutions that will help improve discoverability for new artists and collections.
As our founder Jamil tweeted out a few days ago, we've already worked towards implementing a few changes to our site:
On the home page, we've implemented a randomly rotating "featured" section so that smaller collections have a chance to be featured. Additionally, we've added a categorical section where you can browse by Collectibles, Fine Art, Photography, Music, and others to come.
We've also added direct access to currently minting collections via the Gamma Portal. If a collection is minting, you'll see a green light indicating as such:
As for what we're working on next...
Thank you for your continuous feedback on making Gamma a better marketplace for our community. Please feel free to reach out to our team if you have any more suggestions!
Did you know that we have a Gamma Help Center? If you have any questions as an artist, collector, or project creator, head over to Gamma Support to see if your question has already been answered.
If you're a creator who has recently released an NFT project on Gamma and are wondering how you can get your collection verified, check out our documentation below outlining the steps for getting that blue check:
Collection verification is one way we help inform users as to the likely legitimacy of a project listed on Gamma. It is important to note that Gamma does not endorse or affiliate with any project not explicitly described as such.

The Built on Bitcoin podcast collection from JakeBlockchain.btc is now live on Gamma!
Thousand True is a collection based on Kevin Kelly’s fantastic “1,000 True Fans” article. A rethinking of what success can mean as an artist creating alongside their fans. Every holder of Thousand True is a believer in Stacks, Built on Bitcoin and the future of Web3. This is an experiment of what that can look like as a podcast moves natively into the crypto space and brings loyal listeners along the way.
Happy minting everyone, and thanks for tuning in!
