Creator fee (royalty)

The Creator sets its fee (up to 15%) globally on-chain using its Creator Address.
That means that all assets created by this address will be governed by this fee.

In addition to earning royalties in ALGO, Creators could also earn royalties over time in USDC, USDT, gALGO, goBTC, and goETH if they have opted-in these assets.


Listing of a single asset

Let’s say Creator has created 10 NFTs with Creator Address and sets its royalty to 8%.

All of these NFTs will have a 8% royalty attached to them, meaning that 8% of the listing price will be paid to Creator whenever a sale occur.

👉 Case study 1

Seller lists an NFT from Creator for 100 ALGO.

Buyer purchases the NFT:

  • 8 ALGO goes to Creator

  • 1.99 ALGO goes to Platform fee

  • 90.01 ALGO goes to Seller

👉 Case study 2

Seller lists an NFT from Creator for 200 USDC.

Buyer purchases the NFT:

  • 16 USDC goes to Creator

  • 3.98 USDC goes to Platform fee

  • 180.02 USDC goes to Seller

⚠️ Note that if the Creator has not opted-in USDC, the royalties will be sent to the Platform fee address. This is applicable for any ASA (USDC, USDT, gALGO, goBTC, goETH…etc).


Listing of a bundle of assets

The EXA protocol allows users to create bundles of up to 4 assets but how do the royalties are computed? Especially for bundles with assets from different Creators? Let’s find out in this section.

The royalties are computed according to the following formula:

  • R is the total royalties a Buyer will pay to the Creators

  • P is the price of the listing

  • N is the number of assets with a Creator fee set (> 0%)

  • ri is the royalty of asset of index i

👉 Case study 1

Seller lists a bundle of 3 NFTs from Creator for 100 ALGO.

Creator has 5% royalties set.

Buyer purchases the NFT:

  • 5 ALGO goes to Creator

  • 1.99 ALGO goes to Platform fee

  • 93.01 ALGO goes to Seller

Creator1 has 9% royalties set.

  • 7 ALGO in royalties goes to the Creators (Creator1 , Creator2 , and Creator3)

  • 3 ALGO goes to Creator1

  • 1.33 ALGO goes to Creator2

  • 2.66 ALGO goes to Creator3

  • 1.99 ALGO goes to Platform fee

  • 91.01 ALGO goes to Seller
