💻🧰 How we built it 🔧🔨
ORDEN is built using Next.js for the frontend. The Smart contracts for the NFTs and the Marketplace are written using Solidity. Hardhat to test, deploy and manage the blockchain development cycle. The NFTs are ERC721 Standard enabling:
- Low transaction and exchange rate
- Fewer intermediation costs
- Faster transactions
- Land data traceability and management power enhance the value of the property.
The smart contracts are deployed on the Polygon network which helps us deliver Zero Minting Fees as polygon as a side chain and its multi-chain ecosystem would help us scale
Use of Filecoin/IPFS ❗💡
The NFT metadata and image of the artwork is saved on the IPFS network. An IPFS hash (CID or content identifier) is created of the file when an artist uploads it, this file then gets uploaded to the IPFS network. The CID can be used to access the file from any IPFS node at any point of time in the future.
Challenges we ran into
Integrating the front end with the blockchain was a little challenging!
