  • An MVP of writing NFT will be available to the community in Q3
  • There is also a beta version of the DAO tool built by the Oursky team and there is a demo on Youtube. a clickable version will be deployed on staging environment for the community to try out this week.

Writing NFT

It’s been months since LikeCoin started planning on NFT and obviously NFT has taken the industry by storm. The idea of NFT, however, is still young.

The NFT storm brings us some new ideas about digital asset:

  • Monetization of digital artwork
  • Content ownership
  • Community building around asset collection

Most people buy NFT because of its investment value e.g. gaming and trading market. NFT market starts at an investment angle instead of what NFT is about. The current set of NFT market is not good for everyone, especially if you are a blogger, as it focuses on mostly rare expensive NFT modules, the business model, marketplace, minting and marketing strategy that is involved isn’t really for media or writers at all.

Two basic issues that Writing NFT should target, from writer’s prospective:

  • How much should I price an NFT?
  • How many should I mint for this particular article that I wrote?

Dynamic Pricing will let the market define them.

Dynamic Pricing

The NFT widget embedded in a piece of writing can let reader to collect the work’s first NFT with a base price. All works share the same default base price upon publishing. Authors do not need to worry about how to price an article.

Every transaction of NFT collection drives the marked price higher automatically (rate of increase is yet to be confirmed), so the earlier to purchase the NFT, the better price one can get. As time goes by the price of NFT will rise along with the demand.

If someone release a Writing NFT to the secondary market, a buyer can collect the NFT from the widget with the lowest marked price directly, no bidding process.

In a nutshell, the Dynamic Pricing encapsulates writers from the hurdles of setting quantity and price. Writers write as usual and the works are put on-shelf automatically; readers read as usual and collect a Writing NFT when they feel alright about the marked price.

Mini Marketplace

NFT widget is a mini-marketplace embedded in each article. Articles on websites such as WordPress sites can show the NFT widget automatically, so writers can sell as they write. The old version LikeCoin button will be upgrade to NFT widget. Readers can collect NFT of the articles at the widget, and also give “Likes” to reward the creator. Readers no longer need to visit centralized marketplace to collect NFTs, but just collect as they read.

NFT Portal

If the publishing platform does not support LikeCoin NFT widget, creators can paste the URL of the work to the NFT Portal website to mint NFT there. The NFT minted will be listed in the NFT Portfolio page under the writers account, and let readers collecting there.
