In this tutorial, I will embark on an exciting journey of creating a decentralised art auction platform on the Celo blockchain. This platform aims to give artists and collectors a secure, transparent, and easy-to-use marketplace to buy and sell art as Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs). The tutorial will provide a hands-on approach to leveraging blockchain technology for digital art commerce, with a focus on Celo’s unique features like its mobile-first approach and lightweight identity protocol.
Throughout this tutorial, you’ll learn:
- How to create and manage NFTs on Celo, including minting and transferring NFTs.
- How to create a smart contract for a decentralized auction, handling bidding, cancellation, and auction settlement.
- How to integrate Celo wallets, like Valora, for payment in stablecoins (e.g., Celo Dollar).
- How to use Celo’s ContractKit to interact with smart contracts.
- How to build an intuitive and mobile-friendly frontend to interact with the Celo blockchain.
By the end of this tutorial, developers will gain a comprehensive understanding of NFTs, how auctions work in the blockchain world, and more importantly, how to leverage Celo’s unique features to create an efficient, user-friendly Dapp. Additionally, developers will also gain practical experience in deploying a real-world application on a blockchain platform, thus solidifying their skills in blockchain development and smart contract programming.
