How does the fee structure work

How the exact % are divided and what you can expect after the primary sale.

Fees on sales

On primary sales (the first time an artwork is sold, also known as a mint sale):
- The Artist receives 90% of the sale amount.
- Authic receives 10% of the sale amount.

On secondary sales (which is any sale following the primary sale):

- The seller receives 87.5-100% of the sale amount depending on the royalty choice of the initial artist.
- The original artist receives between 0 and 12.5% of the sale amount as a royalty, depends on his preference

On all sales, there's a 3% marketplace fee added on top of the sale price that's paid for by the buyer, this goes to the Authic.
