NFTs have recently become a big phenomenon, and they are still something new, not yet going mainstream. But this kind of market has some inefficiencies, also due to its novelty and early stage.
Among the current problems in the NFT space and community, we may mention:
What looks quite strange, at the moment, is that even big players in the NFT world, like Opensea and Rarible, are still missing basic features, to help collectors to search and identify the best “deals”. Also, only very popular artists and NFT creators are getting all the visibility, while smaller players are often invisible and struggle very hard to get also a little promotion there.
A possible solution is a search engine, capable of searching both recency data (the most recent bids on the blockchain) and archived items (where every NFT creator can login with their Metamask or just drop an ETH address to get listed). This is what nftguru.io does, at the moment.
Another already available feature, for those who connect with their Metamask and are the real owners of the listed NFTs, is to allow them to put meta-tags on each item, like 2d, 3d, animated, static, abstract, figurative, etc. Those meta-tags allow users to really refine their search and find exactly the kind of asset they are searching for.
To give a quick idea of what this website currently does (keep in mind that it’s still in Beta at the moment), here’s a list of the features available:
