Which NFT Development Services would you need in 2021?
In the second quarter of 2021, the market for non-fungible tokens (NFTs) surged to new highs. The NFT sales so far this year totalled to be over $2.5 billion, which is a whopping 200 times of the sales in the first half of 2020 ($13.7 million). According to Nonfungible.com, over 963k NFTs have been sold to date and the number keeps growing every passing day. With the increasing interest in NFTs, the NFT development services have also started to undergo an evolution.
Here is the list of the most important NFT development services that you would need in 2021. They have really evolved since 2017 when the NFT development really became a thing.
In 2017, if you wanted to develop an NFT like CryptoKitties, you would actually have to walk through the open-source code of CryptoKitties (2000 + lines). Then you would be required to enter details like genes, birthTime, generation, cooldownIndex, matronId & sireId and a lot more to create a CryptoKitties NFT.
Over the last 3 years, NFT development has become very simple. An owner of an art piece or music file can simply go to an NFT minting platform and put his asset on the blockchain using a very simple user interface. However, if you have an idea in mind like fractionalizing and converting the real estate into NFTs, this could be a little more complicated and this is where NFT development services come to your rescue.
The concept of NFT marketplaces became very popular after OpenSea, the latest crypto unicorn capitalized on 2021’s NFT boom. Interestingly, OpenSea’s current valuation touched $1.5B after it closed a $100M funding round. Undoubtedly, OpenSea has been doing something right which led to this explosive growth:
What more is trending in NFT marketplace development?
Crypto wallets do not basically store an NFT. What they essentially do is that they provide users with private keys that allow them to access the NFTs stored on the blockchain. They ensure the access to the NFT is secure and access to it is completely in users’ control.
Software crypto wallets for NFT can be designed to be available as web extensions, desktop applications, or and mobile applications. Basically, an NFT wallet is different from a normal crypto wallet in a way that it supports NFT specific token standards like ERC-721, ERC-1155 and more.
Interestingly, nowadays, NFT wallets are being developed with a built-in dApp browser that provides users access to NFT marketplaces directly from the wallet.
To create an NFT from scratch, one needs to have a smart contract written specifically to create an NFT. But before a smart contract is created, one must carefully choose the blockchain on which the smart contract needs to be created. This is very important because NFTs built on blockchains like Polygon, Cardano and Binance Smart Chain are less costly and faster to trade in comparison to Ethereum. This aspect is where NFT development services can help you pick the most appropriate blockchain for your unique NFT.
Recently, smart contract exploits have become a very common occurrence. Thus, it becomes equally important to audit these NFT smart contracts both internally and externally.
