‘The industry will need to have dynamic NFTs,’ says Vivid Labs CEO Halsey Minor

Cointelegraph spoke about the nonfungible token, or NFT, market with Halsey Minor, CEO of the NFT publishing platform provider Vivid Labs.

Vivid Labs offers the VIVID NFT platform that allows creators to build NFT marketplaces on its native blockchain. The company claims that they are specialized in creating NFTs that combine multimedia assets such as audio, video, and images into one asset called NFT+.

Halsey argues that NFTs, however multimedia rich they may be, “can be more valuable if connected to real world products.” He is making a distinction between NFT creators that “sell media” like a song or artwork that “tends to be static” with immutable data, and creators who make dynamic assets with data that can be continuously updated tied to real world experiences or physical items.

He gives the example of purchasing a luxury handbag from the French fashion house Hermes if it were tied to an updatable NFT to continuously communicate with the customer: “You buy a limited edition bag, but you also get an NFT that proved that it was real, videos about how the bag was made and pictures of how the bag can be styled.”

This concept could be applied to any special edition item or even to event tickets sold as NFTs, like how the NFL offered NFT tickets to Super Bowl attendees earlier this month. A dynamic NFT could reflect any changes to game-goer information.

“The industry will need to have dynamic NFTs” and commercial marketing is “the least recognized application,” added Minor.

Recently, Vivid Labs partnered with Shopify to allow Shopify App Store users to download the VIVID NFT App. Shopify Plus merchants now have the ability to create and manage their own NFT+ markets on their storefronts. The app has powered Natural Selection Tour’s first NFT drop in their latest snowboard competition.

According to John S. Lee, lead of blockchain ecosystem at Shopify, this integration “will help to further grow participation in Web3 and expand what’s possible in commerce.”

Dynamic NFTs are not new but their application is still being explored. Blockchain collectibles are another use case for dynamic NFTs. Recently, the Koii Network launched a project that enabled collectibles to change state based on the owner’s love and attention or lack of it.
