Blockchain-based NFTs have become quite popular this year. Individual consumers, private firms, and even major sports organizations have been creating, purchasing, and selling provably unique non-fungible tokens (NFTs). What makes NFTs so special is that they effectively introduce the concept of digital scarcity and the ability to collect one-of-a-kind items in a virtual environment.
Throughout our extensive history, human beings have always been interested in collecting unique and scarce items. We are quite fond of assigning value to items or perceiving them to be valuable. It’s something we’ve all done for a very long time. Now, it’s possible to buy a collection of rare and valuable items with innovative blockchain and NFT technology.
However, creating and managing NFTs can be quite challenging due to their highly technical nature. Most NFT development platforms require people to be familiar with complex computer programming and being able to understand technical terms and concepts. This creates a significant entry barrier for consumers who may not be very tech-savvy.
No-Code Solutions for NFTs Could Help Onboard Even More Creators
Fortunately, there are certain workarounds being developed in order to make issuing and managing NFTs a lot more accessible for a wide range of users. Instead of requiring people to master software programming, which can be quite challenging and time-consuming, there are a number of low-code or no-code solutions in the market that allow us to build applications without writing any code.
In fact, low-code or no-code is well on its way to becoming a multi-billion dollar market in the traditional finance space. Many Fintech firms like Netherlands-based CLEVR are focused on supporting low-code app development for various use-cases like digital identity. Low-code platforms are being increasingly adopted because they allow many more people to develop engaging software applications instead of always relying on software architects to do the job.
If someone happens to be very creative but isn’t a skilled programmer, then they need not worry. That’s because they can bring their creative ideas to life with the help of no-code development environments. In the blockchain and NFT world, there’s a fairly new project called Unifty that aims to offer a full suite of no-code building blocks and tools.
These intuitive toolsets have been designed specifically for NFT creators. They’re meant to support the fast-evolving create an economy and Web 3.0 dApps or decentralized applications. According to its developers, anyone can create NFT-related dApps seamlessly with the Unifty no-code application development platform.
Merging the NFT Creator Economy with Web Content Management
As explained by the Unifty team, the main idea is to merge the crypto/NFT world with the appropriate web content management while offering standard software for creators to help with their specific workflows. Before Unifty became available, customized solutions had been quite costly and also time-consuming to implement.
Unifty aims to solve this problem by watching market demand and delivering on users’ requirements ahead of its competitors. With Unifty, it may be possible to create interactive NFTs, Custom Farms, ERC1155 Wallets, Layer 2 to Mainnet NFT bridges, and NFT value balancing on swaps using $NIF (marketplaces).
Users are also able to deploy any of the Unifty tools in a “fully decentralized” manner by simply pointing and clicking (no coding required) on the chain of their choice (support for multi-chain environment). The Unifty platform also allows creators to become the sole owner of the code and they can even edit the code if they’re a software developer.
If more projects start focusing on lowering the entry barrier to creating customized NFTs, then the creator economy would benefit tremendously. Already, large companies like payments giant Visa have started buying their own Ethereum-based NFTs. As more people and organizations start taking an interest in digital collectibles, we’ll definitely be needing more user-friendly ways to mint and manage NFTs.
No-code and low-code platforms are already a big market in the traditional finance sector, so it seems logical to bring these capabilities to the blockchain and NFT space.
