KLL NFT: Background
I discovered Kamile or KLL 2 years ago and became a massive fan of her artwork. I have several of her pieces around my home; I happen to be sitting in front of one now.
Her artwork has an edgy quality that I enjoy, and her sarcastic wit comes across in all her pieces.
A year after I discovered KLL, the NFT momentum grabbed my attention, and like many, my mind was flooded with ideas of how this new tool could be used. I began reading white papers on non-fungible tokens, specifically the ones below:
After a few months, I scoped out an initial project, partnered with a friend, and built it.
We launched an omnichain NFT that gated access to a minigame, fishbags.lol.
We didn't scale the project user base into a massive audience, but we captured a handful of players, ran a competition, and distributed awards.
After this, I worked through a discovery phase with ideas that came to mind while building the previous project. A few particular points of focus caught my attention:
- EIP-2569: Saving and Displaying Image Onchain for Universal Tokens — the value of on-chain assets is significant at this early stage; it assures the accessibility and permanence of the tokens' metadata in the future.
- EIP-998: ERC-998 Composable Non-Fungible Token Standard — leverages crafting ability of on-chain assets allowing images to be shaped and structured dynamically.
- EIP-2535: Diamonds, Multi-Facet Proxy — provide a way to manage complex contracts and size limits, referencing all functionality from a single contract.
The network of information I had been learning connected to building a composable, on-chain NFT and leveraging the diamond smart contract system to manage it. The next post will present and discuss the project idea in more depth; stay tuned. →
