Deploying Value On-Chain With Gold-Backed NFTs

Blocknative

By Blocknative in blockchain, usability, Case Study, Dapp, DeFi, Notify on April 15, 2020

What would coin collecting look like in the digital world? 

Jesse Johnson became obsessed with answering this question. And after he co-founded Mintable — a platform that makes it easy to mint and manage NFTs — he set to work to answer that question. 

Given his background in NFTs (non-fungible tokens), Jesse wanted to explore the idea of NFTs with intrinsic value. This eventually led to the creation of Bullionix — a decentralized gold mint where anyone can use Digix gold tokens to create NFTs. EachNFT minted on Bullionix has a specific weight of gold staked to it. Bullionix is the first crypto project to combine scarce NFTs with digital gold.

DeFi Saver: Making It Easier To Manage DeFi Assets

Blocknative

By Blocknative in blockchain, usability, Case Study, Dapp, DeFi, Notify on February 18, 2020

DeFi is a blockchain term that refers to decentralized finance, and the ethos of the term refers to the creation of an open financial system that doesn’t rely on authorities or intermediaries. Today most DeFi activity is on the Ethereum network and ranges from digital assets to financial smart contracts to protocols.

With DeFi, developers can program applications that can store, lend, borrow, or otherwise manage digital assets. These applications often come to life in the form of smart contracts or protocols — which can be leveraged by other developers to build on. 

Today we will explore this emerging world that seeks to reinvent the financial system.

Blocknative Year In Review - And What's Ahead

Blocknative

By Blocknative in blockchain, usability, UX Best Practices on December 17, 2019

Blocknative has come a long way since we launched at ETHDenver 2019 in February. Our team is excited by the progress we have made.  As 2019 wraps up, we want to take a moment to talk about where we are as a company – and what's next for 2020.

What Is Blocknative?

During 2019, we had the opportunity to get involved with the blockchain community at several events, including ETHDenver, Web3 Summit, MetaCartel Demo Day, DappCon, ETHBerlin, Devcon V, San Francisco Blockchain Week, and more. Along the way, we learned that many members of the ecosystem are familiar with Blocknative but were not sure about what we do.  This was not much of surprise given how rapidly our business and the surrounding ecosystem has evolved in 2019. 

In response, we recently created this quick video if efforts to clarify what we do, who we do it for, and why our capabilities are relevant to you and your blockchain-based business:

Announcing Onboard.js — Web3 User Onboarding Made Easy

Chris Meisl

By Chris Meisl in blockchain, usability, onboard.js on December 12, 2019

Transactions are key to every Dapp. But for your users to transact, they must have a wallet, connect to the right network, and have some ETH. There is a lot of room for error. If your users struggle to transact, this reflects poorly on your Dapp.

Given the above, it is crucial for you to provide users with clear directions. You cannot rely on wallet UX alone to ensure that your users transact successfully.

But you are in luck. Blocknative has built a robust open-source solution that helps transact on Web3.

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. 

Using NFTS To Introduce Users To Web3

What does it mean for a token to be non-fungible? Fungibility is synonymous with interchangeability. So non-fungible tokens are unique. 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:
