Souffl3 is developing a new generation of full-stack NFT networks – CEO
Souffl3 CEO and Co-founder, Rei Kikuchi, also commented on the development. According to Kikuchi, Souffl3 is currently developing a new generation of full-stack NFT networks that can effortlessly connect mainstream life, art, and other assets with the Web3 ecosystem.
Kikuchi explained that presently, once an NFT is created on-chain, only a limited change can be presented, leaving NFTs inherently clumsy. He further that this limited change leads to a challenging narrative for NFT creators. Kikuchi noted that this often leads to creators seeking off-chain solutions to progress their roadmaps forward. According to CEO, this and many more reasons are why Souffl3 is working on developing a full stark NFT network.
As revealed, Souffl3 stays committed to availing users with a more distinguished experience through its refined market and spontaneous trading tools. Recently, it partnered with WAV3 Creator Studio which provides a variety of tools for no-code NFT creation and management. In addition, the protocol also renders backings to creators in the community to enable them concentrate on innovation and community build-up. Furthermore, Souffl3 intends to widen the boundaries of Web3 and Web3 innovation. It intends to introduce the NFT2.0 era by inventing the first MOVE language-based dynamic NFT standard.
