With the release of Auction House, Zora is working to move ownership from centralized auction houses to decentralized auction houses. However, the smart contracts are only the first piece of the puzzle, and we're setting out to fill in the blueprints for anyone to spin up and remix their own auction house experience.
Creators and curators can now seamlessly create their own permissionless, customizable auction house experiences. Zora has created a suite of technical tools for accessing, rendering, and contextualizing both auction information and media information.
These libraries are open for the world to use and improve – MIT-licensed and developed in public.
This code is free to use, inspect, remix, and to make your own.
Fetching blockchain data is difficult – we have wrapped all the difficult work of fetching and organizing blockchain data of the Zora Auction House and Media into our
Even with all the data, web3 is about interaction with user interfaces in browsers. We've followed up the
nft-hooks library with
nft-components. These libraries go hand in hand - components show data that is fetched from NFT hooks.
nft-components creates an accessible design language and flexible auction-focused components to seamlessly integrate NFTs and marketplaces into community and artist's spaces.
These components work with minimal code to get started and provide a full suite of features to render all the details found on the Zora's full data page and all the information shown on the Zora thumbnail view as well.
This library is also open and owned by the community, pulling in as few external dependencies as possible. The theming, text, styles, and media supported are completely configurable by the user while also working with zero configuration out-of-the-box.
Much like how Uniswap gave anyone the ability to create their own exchange, Zora gives anyone the ability to create their own Auction Houses. You can create an Auction House that can curate and auction any and all ERC721 tokens.
This means there is an entirely new universe of experiences that can be created.
Here are some Auction House ideas:
Looking ahead, we're planning on removing further barriers for individuals to participate in the NFT ecosystem. Soon, to make your own auction house, coding will be optional.
