Combining Crypto NFTs with A Bubble App

App: Tic-Tac-Toe-NFT

NFTs (non-fungible tokens) are all the rage these days. In particular, interest in NFTs that assert ownership of digital artwork or game assets has exploded.

We recently worked on a simple project that attempts to create NFT art using a collaborative process.

It works by requiring purchaser of an NFT on opensea.io to then take an additional step to contribute to creating the final artwork – by specifying a location on a tic-tac-toe board.

The idea behind this NFT project is simple – create new NFTs by collaborating with strangers.

The simplest way to do that is via games.

And one of the simplest games is tic-tac-toe.

The purchaser simply has to log into the Bubble app we developed and make a single decision.

How It Works

  • First, you purchase a token that gives you the right to place an ‘x’ or an ‘o’ on a digital game board.
  • Next you unlock some hidden content on your opensea.io dashboard to get your key.
  • Log into the Bubble app at https://ticktactoenft.com and register your key which will allow you to specify a cell in the tic-tac-toe grid
  • Once all 9 players have done their part, the gameboard is created in the style shown in the opensea.io profile, minted and transferred to the 9 addresses holding the original tokens.

About The App

We built the bubble app and, as far as apps go, this was relatively simple – its truly an MVP (minimal viable product) to see if there is demand for these kinds of collaborative NFTs.

The only complex logic was displaying the tic-tac-toe grid accurately. Some experimenting with repeating groups along with some logic gymnastics made that possible without creating duplicate code.

Given that it’s an MVP, you should forgive the rough edges.
