What is the difference between a Creator and a Collector?

Terminology

  • A Creator is an issuer of an NFT, while a Collector is someone who bought an NFT (that was issued by the Creator) and is holding onto it or is reselling it on the marketplace.

Tip:  To learn about the difference in buying from a Creator versus from a Collector, refer to this article.

Tip:  When a Creator no longer is offering an NFT for sale, you may still be able to purchase the NFT from a Collector.

Note:  When buying from a Collector, the original Creator may receive a royalty fee, which will be taken from the sale price.
