What occurs when I mint or purchase from the Arkade marketplace?
Arkade is both a primary and secondary marketplace for NFTs.
When you mint an NFT on Arkade's official website, you are buying directly from the creators of the NFT collection and storing it on the blockchain. You don't have the option to choose which NFT you get, it's like a lucky draw where you have equal chances of getting a legendary or common tier NFT for the same price.
However, you may be able to purchase the NFT at a lower price compared to buying on a secondary market. On the other hand, buying NFTs on Arkade's secondary market allows you to choose which NFT you want and the current holders set the price for each NFT.
