Web3: NFT identification

NFT identification

The NON-FUNDGIBLE TOKEN is (almost always) not the image, you see in the press or the web.

That is the biggest misconception of the technology. So let us set this straight: an NFT is a secure, unfakeable public entry on the blockchain. It works like a certificate of an artwork. Only a few “pictures” are created “on chain”, meaning the artwork is really entered together with the certificate on the blockchain. The majority of NFTs are just some secure public entries that point to files on the web.

With that in mind, we can use these unfakeable or forgery-proof entries to assign rights to the holders of specific NFTs.

On envoverse we do that with our “member area”, which we call The Ark.

In order to work as an entry ticket, the user must have a wallet installed on his/her computer and grant reading access to that wallet.

The website now looks into the wallet and checks, if the wallet is indeed the owner of a specific public database entry. That is all.

  • An NFT is a public, forgery-proof entry in a blockchain like Ethereum or Solana
  • The user has a wallet (like MetaMask or Phantom) installed
  • The website asks for “read-only” rights for the user wallet
  • The user grants access, to show the ownership of a specfic NFT
  • The website confirms the ownership and loads the protected content

This process is an integral part of “Web3” – identification of users without personalizing data.
