[ Manifesto ]

Our mission is to accelerate global wealth equality through meaningful
digital assets.

[ Pioneers ]

Orica is already trusted by 3,000+ pioneer collectors for leading-edge, socially-conscious art. We currently play in the BNB ecosystem - the most accessible, environmentally-sound alternative to ETH.

[ Metaverse ]

Orica’s creator community is by invitation only. We carefully curate our platform to represent the forefront of digital art. Orica’s first metaverse exhibition opens in March 2022 in Orica Gallery, Decentraland.

Creators
Click for Creators

Orica is your entry into a collaborative community for making change. We are one hundred of the leading, socially-conscious creators.

Each of us has been invited because of the significance of our work and our engagement in the ethical future of NFTs.

Orica minting is 99.5% more affordable than ETH. There are no gas fees to settle. No final surprises. We take a transaction fee of just 1% for platform costs.

We chose BNB for low fees, accessibility, reliability and environmental sustainability. As a PoS network, minting is up to 99.9% more energy efficient than ETH.

Interested in joining us? Connect with our curators via Twitter.

Collectors
Click for Collectors

Orica is simple to use as a Collector. All you need is a MetaMask wallet with BNB, the cryptocurrency used to pay for Orica transactions.

When you buy an Orica NFT, it will transfer to your wallet and appear in your Collector profile. You can share your NFT on social media, display it in your virtual gallery or sell it later on the secondary market.

You can also connect with other Orica collectors through The Collector, our newsletter with exclusive invitations and interviews.

Finally, many Orica NFTs donate to important causes. You can share your support and donation on social media too.

Still have questions? Email our collector relations team.

[ What NFT artists are already saying ]

mellowmann orica Tokebi

“I've been jumping in on other platforms and none of them provided me the support that I was looking for. I realized I could grow with Orica’s community.”

mellowmann orica Katerina Marchenko

“I’d followed this year’s excitement about NFTs, but needed a reason bigger than ‘in it for the money’... Orica became that bigger reason”

mellowmann orica Mellowmann

“The term ‘social impact’ alone should make you jump instantly on this NFT platform!“
