Rental Types
Cardinal offers four different types of rentals for a variety of use cases. Listing one of your NFTs for rent is simple. Connect your wallet, select your token, customize your listing parameters, and list! Let’s take a look at the three main types of listings, all of which can either be made available to the public or reserved for a private counterpart.
Our Flagship Model
With a rate rental, the lister specifies a price-per-time at which and a maximum expiration until which their NFT can be rented. For example, let’s suppose I execute a rate-based listing for a given NFT at a price-per-time of 1 SOL/day and a maximum expiration of January 1st. Someone may then rent the NFT for any amount of time up until January 1st at the rate of 1 SOL/day.
