SAVAGE’s revolutionary new NFT marketplace allows both amateur and professional photographers, filmmakers, and other digital artists to easily, fairly, and ethically monetize their content. We’re proud to provide the lowest fees compared to competitors, Rights Managed contracts, largest upload sizes, while also being carbon-neutral with a strong commitment to supporting environmental sustainability initiatives.
Among all of the other creator platforms, such as legacy stock media sites and other NFT marketplaces, SAVAGE’s 98% creator payouts are far above the industry standard. In the past, even top creators have had to settle for as low as 30% payouts for their work. SAVAGE is proud to lead the charge of having fair compensation for creators and to meet the needs of the rapidly expanding digital asset economy.
Besides high payouts, SAVAGE charges a flat minting fee of $10, making the marketplace accessible to a wide community. For buyers new to cryptocurrency, we provide an easy access point by being able to pay for NFTs with a credit card via Stripe integration.
Most NFT marketplaces cap uploads at 10-40MB and only allow compressed file types like PNG and JPEG. SAVAGE allows creators to share their work in whatever format they choose, whether that’s a TIFF/RAW image or 4K/8K ProRes video. File size limits are 2GB so creators can display their artwork in unrivaled quality. Rights Managed contracts built into the NFT metadata means that creators have the same rights as they would for stock photos or videos, protecting both buyer and artist.
Because SAVAGE is built on Polygon’s proof-of-stake protocol, gas fees and energy consumption for transactions are much lower than they are on proof-of-work NFT platforms operating on Ethereum. Energy consumption concerns with NFTs on proof-of-work protocols have kept many big name creators, filmmakers, and brands out of the NFT space.
Many top creators who have brand deals with companies like National Geographic are deeply passionate about contributing to positive environmental causes. We share those values. A zero-emission marketplace is needed if there’s to be mass adoption of NFTs and that’s exactly why SAVAGE has promised to remain carbon-neutral, with the long-term goal of becoming carbon-negative by 2024.
SAVAGE was built for creators, by creators. That’s why our goal is to completely transition to a DAO and let $SAVG token holders control the platform’s future. Along with providing staking functionality and liquidity mining, the token will eventually allow the community to fully govern the marketplace.

Through empowering creators, SAVAGE is well-positioned to make waves in the burgeoning NFT market, disrupting the legacy media industry, while being environmentally-responsible and providing a best-in-class user experience.
