Peerkat receives follow-on funding to extend NFT Data Services for XRPL ecosystem

August 2, 2022

The XRPL Grants programme recently announced the latest wave of awardees to receive grants and Peerkat was named among the array of exciting projects.

XRPL Grants is the dedicated fund for developers interested in building technical standards and solutions to help support projects in the XRP Ledger community. There are a wide variety of projects funded by the programme including infrastructure tooling, tokenized projects, DeFi, DAOs, dapps and social impact. The application process for the next funding wave opens later this month. 

Wave 1 Review

Last year we received funding in the first wave of XRPL Grants in order to develop and open source modules for NFT minting. These modules include issuance, claiming, collection, delivery and verification services, and are available as a full NFT minting platform at our company GitHub. We will soon be releasing an upgraded version to serve the XLS-20 standard for native NFTs, along with UX enhancements.

In addition to our open source XRP Ledger work, we also utilised the first grant to fund the build of our NFT Viewer xApp within the popular Xumm Wallet. The Peerkat xApp is designed to enable users to easily view and share their NFTs, the viewer has already received almost 30,000 users. We will release an improved version of it in due course for compatibility with XLS-20 and extra features.

We then commenced work on building out a data platform to help NFT investors, creators and developers. The aim is to provide a user-friendly overview, a fundamental analysis of XRPL NFTs by tracking on-chain and social data. We are currently finalising the first release of this platform where we will be featuring NFT projects with IOU tokens.

Next Steps

Moving forward Peerkat will now be doubling down on our NFT data services in order to provide the ecosystem with a comprehensive analytics platform for XLS-20, including coverage of each individual NFT. We will also develop an open source NFT data loading process for developers to leverage, as well as an API service for simplified methods of interacting with the data.
