NFT project manifest checkmark The NFT Project Manifest


One of the largest issues facing newcomers to the NFT space is lack of information, specifically about projects they are interested in buying.

In an effort to combat this, the NFT Project Manifest was created. It is a simple representation of an NFT projects metadata.

This information supports users in making a more informed decision about whether a project aligns with their goals and their risk tolerance.

The main goal of the manifest is to make it easier for users to do their own research, find crucial NFT project information, and help foster smarter decision making.

The manifest also presents a technical implementation which allows automated 3rd party services to easily scrape relevant project data.
