getting in over my head is how I learn fastest 8)
1st , context;
Now officially working with an Art School Foundation that is moving forward on converting their Artist’s Works Registry. Hooray
That is, after my fine presentation of why the solution to all their real world problems is to implement an NFT-Registrar for the works created by their art students some of which are in Big Art Galleries with over 50 years of producing physical paintings. so 1,000s of Paintings by recognised collectable artists waiting to be minted.
here is how over my head am In on this one.
I was never really a programmer but a server admin since the 80s and dropped all that 15 years ago and avoided java script at all costs.
So dec 2020 I realised I have moved back into tech as Crypto Development Specifically.
I am not an artist or content producer of any kind (but i do know a few prolific ones)
SO I have zero interest in NFTs and spent zero time looking into it even with the wonderful Ellio’s long term commentary and SuperFarm Launch
Now , I have started to build an NFT Registrar for an established art school.
I think I hit my head on the event horizon of the cryptoverse and I have to come back at it from the other side.
I expect this will be my new comfortable for a long time.
now I need to clarify some ideas and inspiration really really fast 8)
with out getting lost in analysis paralysis of the sea of info exclusively on ERC721.
here is the thing, I have not read any of these specs yet;
There are now a series of blockchain, internet, and content standards that NFTs follow. There are still variations, however. For instance, the most common NFTs are based on the Ethereum blockchains, and their primary blockchain standards are ERC-721 and ERC-1155. The Ethereum ERC-721 standard first became popular in 2017 with the CryptoKitty game.
ERC-1155 is a more advanced Ethereum standard that allows for the inclusion of multiple fungible and non-fungible items in the same smart contract. You store this data in a smart electronic wallet. Other Ethereum-based standards (all with unique features) include ERC-994, ERC-420, ERC-809, ERC-1201, and ERC-998.
OH NO there is more than 1 NFT Standard to deal with. ok now I feel like im drowning lol
it is just too much to assess and review in a bubble in a timely manner. But it is an important fundamental for many reasons.
I would really appreciate some guidance and direct review with someone that has experience with each of the NFT standards and which single or combination is best suited to use as the foundation of an NFT Based Registrar of Certfied Paintings for an existing ‘set group’ of artists.
second to that is any documented or video resources that reviews/compares the features/limitations/stregths of each ERC NFT Standard for use by Canvas Artists, National Galleries, Museums, a Canvas Art Registrar for life times of paintings preserved for the rest of time.
I understand the Basics of DIGITAL NFT , but I lumped it all as one category and never cared about the details.
I know the most important part is the finer details of tweaking the NFT Contract files themselves that is most important as this is what really defines the features and capabilities strengths and weaknesses of each NFT Standard and relevant use case.
its too much for me to parse in a weekend to verify making the right choice of NFT implementation.
Thank you so much for any input you can provide.
