When building a digital product such as an NFT rading plattform it is essential to take on the perspective of the end users and clients. Your chances to succeed with your digital product will increase if you provide a secure and seamless enduser experience, That is why we included points to consider, when developing an NFT platform or generally engaging in the NFT market as an artist or creator. Of course, this list only covers a fraction of all the important aspects to consider when creating a new NFT website or trading platform. At blokk, we are here to help you with the end to end creation of your custom made NFT marketplace.
Make sure that the platform you're creating or using encrypts data. Also, look for platforms that offer end-to-end encryption, which means that only you and the person you're communicating with can read your messages.
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)
When accessing an NFT platform account or sending sensitive information, always use a secure connection. You can tell if a connection is „secure“ if the URL starts with “https://” (instead of "http://") and there is a lock icon next to it in your browser bar. Secure connections are encrypted, which means that hackers cannot easily intercept the data being transmitted between your device and the website.
Audits of Codes
When creating or choosing an NFT platform, make sure that the smart contracts and the webpage itself undergo audits by an independent third party. These audits help to ensure that the platform is adhering and maintaining a high level of security.
Some NFT platforms offer insurance plans that will reimburse you if your tokens get lost or stolen. This is usually only available for high-value items, but it's worth considering if you're planning on buying or selling expensive NFTs.
When buying or selling NFTs, make sure to use a reputable Web3 wallet service. These services will help you keep your keys safe and make it easy to buy and sell NFTs without having to worry about losing your tokens or having your keys stolen.
Always look for platforms that offer two-factor authentication or/and web3 login options. This adds an extra layer of security by requiring a second form of verification, such as a code sent to your phone, in addition to your username and password.
Good customer support is essential if you run into any problems or have questions about using the platform.
Scalability and development roadmap of the Platform
If you plan on growing your collection of NFTs over time, it’s important to consider the scalability of the platform you choose. Make sure that the platform can accommodate your future needs so that you don’t have to switch later on down the road.
