Earlier this year, Cosmos announced the launch of its proposal 94. The proposal seeks approval of 20k $ATOMs from the community pool to fund an incentivized testnet for interchain NFTs.
Interestingly, NFTs are fast becoming one of the key parts of Cosmos. And this proposal will undoubtedly affect the Cosmos NFT community.
What’s the Proposal About?
The Game of NFTs is an event proposed as a joint effort by multiple Cosmos teams. It aims to test the interchain NFTs feature and build applications on it. The Game of NFTs will have two phases:
a) Public incentivized testnets.
b) A hackathon. The event will take place in Q1 2023.
The proposal is a community pool spend request for permission to fund 20,000 ATOMs worth of incentives. This incentive will serve as reward for participants of the Game of NFTs Phase 1 – interchain NFTs incentivized testnets.
The interchain NFTs technology can aid interoperability. Furthermore, it can expand the features and abilities of IBC. It does this by allowing cross-chain NFT interoperability between IBC-enabled chains.
Additionally, enabling the interchain NFT will increase the number of transactions. This is because the NFT is not limited to and attached to a single chain. Instead, it is transferable to several IBC-enabled chains.
The first IBC NFT transfer between two test chains using various ICS721 implementations was successfully carried out on testnets in November 2022. It was a huge progress for the IBC NFT ecosystem. It showed the NFT compatibility between Cosmos SDK (Go) and CosmWasm (Rust) chains.
The Game of NFTs is a collaborative project of the interchain ecosystem. So, there will undoubtedly be support from the Cosmos community pool. In addition, projects working on IRISnet, Stargaze, Juno, and other Cosmos initiatives, as well as from organizations like IDG Capital and HashKey Capital, will offer support.
This is a big step forward for NFTs on #Cosmos
