5 min readAug 25, 2022

We are thrilled to finally reveal v2 of our NFT marketplace!

Kalao is only available on Avalanche, but our goal is to be seen as the most feature-rich and easy-to-use marketplace across all blockchains. Our new release is a big step in this direction, that we have been working on hard for the last couple of months.

📦 Receive recommendations for up-and-coming NFT collections you might be interested in (coming later). Our algorithm is looking at which NFTs you own and like, which NFTs other collectors who are similar to you hold and what the current market trend is.

Streamlined Experience

After you determine your desired NFTs, Kalao v2 makes it easier than ever for you to get to own them.

🏃 Express checkout: Add NFTs to your basket and buy all at once.

Bulk listing: You can also list multiple NFTs in one go.

💳 Credit-card support: Top up your account directly with your credit card thanks to our partner Ramp Network.

🖼️ Collection offers: Make an offer valid for any item in a collection. This way, you are essentially bidding on the floor NFTs. Ypu can also input the quantity, making sweeping floors easy!

🎨 Trait bidding (coming later): You found a specific NFT trait in a collection you fancy? Kalao enables you to bid on it directly. Your bid will be valid for all NFTs within a collection with this exact property. For example, bid on all NFTs from the ‘Kalao v2 collection’ with a blue background.

For Creators

New auction formats
We want to give artists and NFT projects the freedom to distribute their NFTs in a way that suits their own and their community’s needs. You can choose between a standard fixed price mint on a first come first serve basis, a standard auction or a dutch auction. Optionally, you can add a whitelist. Of course we will release additional auction types later on.

Our minting contracts are battle-tested and launches are 100% free for you. No upfront fee, no performance fee. You need that money to build.

Creator profiles
The place where you can present yourself and your art, in a personal way. Users can not only search by collection, but can also explore all the creators on our marketplace.

ERC 1155 support
Our v2 allows you to create and trade ERC-1155 tokens. That’s especially helpful for games which use this NFT type for common items (e.g. potions).

Supporting you along the way
With our NFT launchpad KalaoGo, you don’t have to worry about smart contracts, frontend or backend services. Additionally, we provide you with our NFT expertise and are happy to support you in marketing.

Behind the Scenes — Our Tech Stack

V2 of our marketplace is built completely from scratch in Golang, allowing us to scale the platform smoothly. Our tech stack is optimized for real time on-chain events, which are a prerequisite for NFT auctions.

We designed Kalao v2 to be easily extendable. For example, the way “Make an offer” is built enables us to broaden its use cases in the future. You will be able to put up any ERC asset (ERC-20/721/1155) for an offer.


Kalao marketplace v2 will come with a bunch of unique features for the Avalanche community, creators and integration partners.
