Hello, if you paint the floor it will show wear and scratches through the paint.
If you clear seal it, then apply several layers of wax, the floor can be re-waxed as needed to maintain its uniform look.
This is the least expensive option for smooth finished concrete floors and is one of the most common.
Those are two entirely different looks.
If you wanted graphics on the floor, such as lane markers etc, you would need to paint it with an epoxy concrete sealer/paint system.. then apply the lane marker paint over the top of that.
Those decisions are best made by you to suit your own needs and application.
