Rarible’s RARI Foundation taps Arbitrum for royalty-embedded EVM chain


The RARI Foundation, the nonprofit arm of the Rarible ecosystem, officially released a testnet for an Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM)-compatible blockchain called “RARI Chain,” with royalties embedded into its nodes.

In an announcement sent to Cointelegraph, the RARI Foundation said that RARI Chain will be a nonfungible token (NFT) infrastructure solution built on Arbitrum. With royalties embedded at the node level, the RARI Foundation said that creators will have the tools they need to be successful in their endeavors.

The move follows a recent uptick in Rarible’s trading volume after demonstrating its NFT marketplace’s commitment to royalties. On Aug. 23, the 24-hour trading volume on Rarible jumped nearly 585% after it removed marketplaces that don’t support royalties and royalty enforcement from its aggregation data.

Jana Bertram, head of strategy at the RARI Foundation, said in a statement that creators are the driving force behind the expansion of NFTs. Bertram explained: 

“To ensure a sustainable economy, it is crucial to provide them with tools and environments contributing to their success. Our commitment is embedded in preventing the disintermediation of creators from the Web3 growth.”

Meanwhile, Rarible co-founder Alex Salnikov said they believe Web3 should be a “creator-centric ecosystem” that allows artists to thrive. Salnikov claims that RARI Chain is a move to protect creators’ earnings. “By enforcing royalties at the node level, we are ensuring that creator royalties are more than just a promise — they are a guarantee,” he said.

According to the announcement, their partners — Arbitrum, LayerZero, WalletConnect and many others — will actively contribute support to the new chain. Nina Rong, head of ecosystem development at the Arbitrum Foundation, also commented on the new development, saying that creators deserve to be “fairly rewarded” for their efforts. The executive highlighted that royalty enforcement at the node level is a significant step in achieving this.
