Non-fungible token, also known as NFT, has become a subject that attracts a huge audience around the globe. NFTs are dominating the field of cryptocurrency. Its popularity has been immeasurable. NFTs are digital assets or digital certificates that provide authentication for the products. Non-fungible tokens are developed on a blockchain network. Since it is developed on a blockchain network, the data of the digital assets are stored securely. Non-fungible tokens can be anything that has the potential to be digitized, For example, video files, music files, audio files, trading cards, etc.
All cryptocurrencies require a trading medium to initiate transactions for the users. They trade in a decentralized exchange platform. Similar to the traditional cryptocurrencies, non-fungible tokens can also be traded in a decentralized exchange platform, but the NFT marketplace platform is commonly used due to its popularity in the NFT domain. An NFT marketplace is a special platform that is exclusively created for the trading of non-fungible tokens.
There are different types of NFT marketplaces that are created based on different functionalities. The most common types are open and exclusive types. OpenSea and Rarible are the popular NFT marketplaces that come under the open category. SuperRare and Nifty Gateway is the popular NFT marketplaces that come under the exclusive category. As the name suggests, an open platform deals with almost all types of NFTs, in an exclusive platform, certain predetermined NFTs are traded, popular types are digital art collectibles. NFT marketplace is a platform that initiates trading of non-fungible tokens, the working of the trading mechanism is executed by smart contracts.
What is a Smart Contract?
A smart contract is a self-executing program with the terms of agreements and the service between the seller and buyers being directly encrypted into the code lines. The agreements and code lines of the contract are in existence across a distributed, decentralized blockchain platform. The code structure controls the execution of the program, and the transactions are irreversible and trackable. Smart contracts allow trusted agreements and transactions to be initiated among anonymous parties without the requirement of a central authority or a legal enforcement mechanism.The service of smart contracts in the crypto space has evolved the functioning of blockchain-based systems
What is an NFT Smart Contract?
NFT marketplace platform’s functionality is based on the service of smart contracts. Each NFT contains unique metadata that is being integrated into the smart contract. In order to construct an NFT marketplace, a token protocol needs to be created on a blockchain network respective to the marketplace platform. NFT smart contracts are a unique group of contracts that ensures the implementation of the trading platform operations. Then, it is integrated with the marketplace system.
Create Your Own NFT Smart Contract
The most common type of smart contract is Ethereum based contract standards known as ERC-721. The term ERC stands for Ethereum Request for Comment, and 721 is the proposal identifier number. These are application-level standards in the Ethereum platform, and smart contract standards that are similar to token ERC-20 are also available in the platform. ERC-721 smart contract standard was created to initiate the operation to transfer and track NFTs within smart contracts.
These are the common steps to initiate an NFT smart contract development process:
- Create a digital wallet at MetaMask
- Choose a test network from MetaMask.
- Invest some dummy crypto tokens in the digital wallet.
- Utilization of editor remix to code the smart contract on Solidity.
- Form a .sol extension file.
- A default smart contract is implemented to create ERC-721 tokens
- The final step, deployment of the smart contract into the blockchain
Benefits of Using A NFT Smart Contract
Smart contracts record all terms and conditions in explicit detail in the blockchain due to its high accuracy.
The terms and conditions of the created smart contracts are completely accessible and visible to all relevant groups.
Smart contracts function on software code and the internet. Thus, it executes transactions at high speed.
Smart contracts use top-level data encryption, which is the standard of modern crypto-currencies use. Thus, it provides high-level security.
- Backup and Storage
Smart contracts record essential information in each transaction. Therefore, when a user makes a transaction, the details are saved permanently in the blockchain.
Smart contracts create complete confidence in their execution. The autonomous, transparent, and secure nature of the agreement eliminates the potential for manipulation or error of data.
