What defines a digital collectible?

From art to profile pictures to in-game avatars and everything in between, what makes digital items stand out is their immutable individuality.

They’re defined by specific characteristics that make them unique. These defining characteristics are attributes. 

But what exactly are attributes? And why should you care about them?

Attributes not only set each digital collectible apart from the next, but they also create a narrative around the item. A narrative that plays a crucial role in building the world of the collectibles and enhancing each item’s appeal.

How to integrate NFTs into your existing mobile games

Every in-game item, powered by NFTs, can hold a uniqueness akin to a collector’s item in the physical world. 

Think of an elusive in-game power-up, a unique digital trading card, a character with special abilities, or even a coveted piece of in-game land. All of this can be turned into an ownable digital item that enhances the richness of gaming experiences. 

While every mobile game demands its own approach, there is a simple and effective structure that can be followed when integrating NFTs into your mobile game:

  1. Plan your NFT strategy and define what assets will be represented as NFTs.
  2. Choose a primary blockchain based on which suits your needs the best.
  3. Develop smart contracts to launch your NFTs with.
