Marble.Cards: Using Digital Collectibles to Make Crypto Accessible

Blocknative

By Blocknative in blockchain, usability, Case Study, Dapp on December 10, 2019

Marble.Cards enables users to turn almost any web page into an NFT (non-fungible tokens). These unique digital collectibles represent web pages as beautiful cards that combine a unique piece of artwork with an image from the webpage. This Dapp is on the mission to create a fun and easy way for new-comers to get engaged in the world of crypto-collectibles.

You wouldn't want to trade a Marble.Card for another Marble.Card because they have different meanings and different worth. But you would easily trade a fungible token (ETH) for another fungible token. 

To further illustrate the differences, take a look at this diagram:

It's challenging to predict what features will make a positive impact.
