Situation Analysis

 

CryptoKitties launched in early December 2017 and introduced a concept of digital scarcity bringing a new class of collectibles into the world. The global market has shown large interests trading this new class, with $18 million in trading volume during the first two months. More and more new collectibles have appeared since (Etherbots, CrytpoCelebrities, CryptoPunks, CryptoTulips etc. - and a dozen more, you can find more of them at https://opensea.io/assets). Blockchain based collectibles is a growing market and could have a significant place in the global market in the future.

Solution

The digital baseball card trading platform was built  on ERC 721, which allows non-fungible tokens to be created. Non-fungible tokens allow collectibles to hold unique and intrinsic value because tokens are not equal to its counterparts. In contrast, ERC-20 and ERC-223 standards have a supply of tokens that are fungible (single unit of that token is equal to another unit).

 

On our baseball card trading platform, users can exchange their collectibles in a peer-to-peer manner. Users can buy, and sell their digital baseball cards through Metamask, with their proof of ownership reflected through their Ethereum address. If you would like to learn more about this project, our team would be happy to walk you through a demo.
