The Problem: NFTs are a great solve in regards to art ownership and community. Where it falls short is it’s disconnected from the non-virtual world. This reduces interest from “normies” and provides hesitation in even understanding the space as an asset class for most crypto people.

How might we provide a way to connect these wallet jpegs to the real world, retaining their ethos as a digital asset, while increasing their perceived value?

What it does

Wallride is an augmented reality NFT derivatives program that turns any JPEG/PNG NFT into augmented painting you can view on your wall for iOS & android. This bridges the gap between wallet and wall, while retaining its authenticity as a digital asset.

How we built it

Our techstack includes: AWS Lamda for serverless exp An algo for turning the art into AR EXPs for android and iOS, no app needed. React USDZ & GLFT Files

Challenges we ran into

Making the product serverless for scalability

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Figuring out how to work with Solana with no prior exp
