Yes, when selling an asset on Sphere, the following fees occur:
- Trading fee: This is a standard 2% of the paid amount charged in the currency used to make the sale. Additionally, on Immutable, a 2% protocol fee is applied to each sale.
- Royalties: This is a variable percentage that is set by the creator.
- Gas fees: When selling an NFT, you need to approve the smart contracts to interact with your assets, the actual transaction is covered by the buyer of the NFT. Cancelling a listing on Beam also incurs gas fees. However, on the Immutable zkEVM chain, we support gasless cancellations.
When buying an asset on Sphere only the gas fees needed to be paid.
