A more humane infrastructure for creating, buying and selling NFTs.

Here's a Radical Idea

Artists and their estates should be paid for their art. That should be the case the moment a work of art is born, and last through its entire life cycle. Yet that isn’t really the case with NFTs. If a marketplace is collecting transaction fees for an NFT, why shouldn’t the artist?

Marmalade is the answer to the limitations and problems plaguing the NFT community. It’s a framework that’s more fair to creators, safer for both buyers and sellers, and more cost-effective for everyone.

The New Industry Standard

  • On-Chain Royalties/Enforceable Royalties

    Marmalade includes built-in mechanisms for enforcing royalties during NFT sales, ensuring that creators are fairly compensated for their work for every single transaction.

  • Escrow Accounts

    With its integrated escrow accounts for NFT transactions, Marmalade guarantees the safety of both buyers and sellers, delivering an outstanding user experience and ensuring secure, trust-free transactions for complete peace of mind.

  • Limitless Customization with “Token Policies”

    Marmalade empowers creators with a dynamic platform, allowing them to craft and personalize features, or “policies,” uniquely suited to their NFTs. Policies can even “stack,” allowing users to add as many as they want. With a user-friendly toolset, the NFT creation process is made remarkably straightforward.

  • Minimal Gas Fees

    Marmalade significantly reduces or eliminates gas fees, making it more cost-effective for artists and collectors to participate in the NFT market.

Use Cases

  • NFTs

    NFT technology has moved away from its core. No matter what the use case is for a specific NFT contract, the industry lacks the ability to integrate royalty payment for original creators with every transaction. Some marketplaces remove this ability. Others don’t think it’s important and make royalties optional. Generally speaking, royalties are associated with exchanges instead of the assets themselves. Marmalade changes that.

  • Fractionalized NFTs

    Unlike fixed amounts in NFTs elsewhere, Kadena's NFTs can be divided into multiple tokens. Creators on our platform don’t have to rely on liquidity marketplaces to fractionalize NFTs. Marmalade lets you customize how you fractionalize your NFT collection by effortlessly adjusting the total supply or the smallest transferable unit of your NFTs.


Immutable Record

As the co-inventors of the original blockchain, Stuart Haber and Scott Stornetta are digitizing historical moments onto Kadena's blockchain through their project, Immutable Record. Now anyone can claim a piece of history through NFTs created by Immutable Record.

Database of Native Assets

DNA is a SaaS platform that digitizes and archives physical objects, paving the way for a seamless Web 3.0 transition for all companies.

Through DNA, brands create a tamper-proof digital record of physical items, giving each a unique identity (Native Asset). These assets, securely stored on the Kadena blockchain, offer tamper-proof provenance, allowing remote authentication, tracking and seamless transfers.


KadCars leads the way with dynamic NFTs, and aims to change how we view NFTs. Long gone are the days when NFTs were all about profile pictures.

KadCars uses NFT technology to allow upgradeable NFTs that integrate seamlessly with games, with the goal of creating an entire thriving ecosystem on the Kadena blockchain.
