About BeyondNFT

Why BeyondNFT?

NFTs have been a hot subject for a few years now.
Whether that's art, game assets, or goods representation, ... they have a wide range of use cases.

However, collectors have mainly been stuck with “static” NFTs; objects that don’t evolve with time or owners. For example, generative art that must be transformed into GIFs to be seen, losing quality, and complexity.
And if there is one thing that the digital world tought us, that the crypto world tought us, we can always go beyond that.

This is why we created BeyondNFT and the Interactive NFT format: what was at first a means for artists to create interactive and dynamic art, is now much more.

Minigames? Music or video distribution? Badges with variable data? Animated kitties that you can truly interact with? As long as you can code it, it’s possible.

You can see a few examples of interactive NFTs in the Explorer. On BeyondNFT you can interact with them, while they can also be utilised directly by users on any website with a simple embed. We are pushing for the format to be supported on on other platforms, such as OpenSea, but for now you can see them as static images.

We believe these marketplace will soon follow our open standard, Beyond what they already have.

How does it work?

Interactive NFTs are fully compatible with ERC721 and ERC1155 standard, as they are built on those standards, while declaring a specific unique property that states “I am an interactive NFT”

This property describes how your NFT should work; where to find its code, its configuration and its dependencies. The combination of all this makes scarce, interactive art, a reality.

We developed several components doing most of the work; and everyone is welcome to participate to the on-going development, as this standard is open source.

Developers that want to allow their users to create dynamic NFTs are can check out the Sandbox repository HERE, which includes all the documentation, description and content of iNFTs.


Let's create!
