We were looking for a way to trade our digital collectibles. Collectibles on the market were on websites that looked like they would scam you, with no real guarantee that you would get the item once you made your purchase. Currently, the Steam market places 7 day holds on trades for in game items. We hope to make trading safer and more efficient by tokenizing our in game items, and allowing users to trade with ease.
What it does
InspectBlock contains various collectibles for a user to browse, or search for using the Algolia Instant Search and its API. The user selects the items in their inventory to be tokenized, enabling it for trade on the site and other ERC721 compliant dApps. After a successful resolve, the item is marked claimed and added to a table of recent transactions.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud to have an application successfully connect to the Ethereum network, successfully log and make a purchase, and implement a search engine that works with our products.
What we learned
We learned that a web application can be built in 36 hours or less and we can teach ourselves quite a bit in the development process
What's next for InspectBlock
Finally, we plan to improve the contracts for use with the ERC721 token including various security bugs, and add EIP165 standard functions.
