We wanted to create an NFT marketplace where users would be able to mint and buy NFTs. This would be based on the Ethereum blockchain technology. Our goal was to allow users to re-sell NFTs on third-party marketplaces as well. It was important to us that the web app was accessible via mobile.
The web application needed to be designed on Web 3.0 and would use the Ethereum blockchain to enable users to mint NFTs at no cost. The NFTs would be made using AI-generated images and displayed as Web 2.0 images. The only charges would be the gas prices. The next phase was to enable re-selling on third-party marketplaces. The user profiles would be live so others could view their NFT collection. We required end-to-end development of the web app including UI/UX design, backend, and training of the AI model. The tech stack used for this project included Ether.JS, ReactJS, NestJS, and MongoDB.
Ekkel had significant experience working on blockchain and Ethereum in particular. Their team felt right and we’re pleased with our choice.
The marketplace was functioning well when it was handed over to us. The live user profiles looked great and the marketplace interface was efficient and easy to understand. The turnaround time on the requests was very impressive. We were also glad that the hybrid use of Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 technologies was executed well.
