About The Clients

Blockchain Japan is our frequent collaborator. The firm has developed and incubated numerous crypto projects beyond Japan’s border.

AddValue is the 1st NFT marketplace to run on Blockchain Japan’s private chain Moneta and is expected to serve both beginners and experts in NFT.

The Challenges

Blockchain Japan quickly acknowledges the growing reputation of NFT within the art community, and their clients are also interested in the business potential of said tokenized content.

With established trust from previous collaborations, Mr. Hirao – Founder of Blockchain Japan came to us with the project outlining Blockchain Japan and their client’s NFT vision.

Mr. Hirao agreed with Ekoios’s consultation for a white-label NFT marketplace as the optimized solution. He stressed on the time-sensitive of the project and how it would not be accepted as a compromise for any deliverables we agreed upon.

The Solutions

Since delivery time is one of the project’s highest priorities, Ekoios proposed a project timeline with a committed deadline for each stage.

Next, we defined user roles and documented core functions, frameworks, and tech used. As requested, AddValue was built on the private chain Moneta and allowed users to mint NFT without paying a gas fee.

Critical features that brought an edge for AddValue as a beginner-friendly NFT marketplace were also incorporated. Admins can mint NFTs at ease and put them on sale with 2 options: instant sale and auction to better profit from their creatives.

AddValue will be one of the few NFT marketplaces that allow both crypto and fiat payment with Stripe integration. Users can buy NFT without cryptocurrencies and store NFT with an on-site wallet created with AddValue.

The Ekoios development team then applied client branding data to the marketplace, including their specific font, color code, and images.

Not only will they talk about the program they are developing, but also about the business model.

The Results

After 4 months of development, Ekoios has successfully deployed the much-anticipated NFT marketplace for Blockchain Japan. Mr.Hirao shares with us the plan to initiate a series of events and exhibitions to gain traction for launching the marketplace in late April 2022.
