KodaDot's Mission

As the most popular open-source NFT marketplace, KodaDot's mission goes beyond the conventional trading of digital art pieces. KodaDot is set to advance the NFT ecosystem, pioneering future use-cases like leveraging Cross-Consensus Messaging version 3 (XCMv3) in Polkadot, and embracing innovative nested NFT standards such as EIP-6551 on Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM).

The Power of Open Source

Why does being open source matter? Open-source projects foster a collaborative environment, allowing for quicker innovation and iteration cycles. Here's why open-source is critical to KodaDot:

  • Avoid redundancy: There's no need to rebuild things that have already been built. Open-source allows developers to build on existing frameworks and libraries, accelerating development timelines.

  • Collaboration: With over 100 contributing developers, anyone can collaborate, bringing their unique skills and perspectives to enhance the project.

  • Do more with less: Despite a small internal team, open-source allows KodaDot to harness the potential of a global developer community, paving the way for rapid innovation.

  • Quicker iteration cycles: Open-source projects can evolve rapidly. Feedback and contributions from the community lead to quicker iteration cycles and a more robust final product.

For anyone aspiring to build an NFT-based product, KodaDot offers an extensive resource of tools and implementations that have been tried and tested in real-world applications. Join the KodaDot community and be part of this exciting journey into the future of NFTs.
