If you’re looking to create an NFT website, how much does NFT development cost? This blog post will break down the costs involved in developing an NFT minting website or website. We’ll also discuss how these costs can vary depending on the features and functionality you want your site to have.

A detailed brief and a clear project outline are essential when creating NFT marketplaces. Having been established for 15 years, we have the experience of working on complex projects that require a clear scope before developing. Cude Design can help you with NFT consulting before NFT development to ensure the launch of your website is a success.

So, whether you’re just starting or already knee-deep in development, read on for a detailed overview of what goes into building your own NFT marketplace website!

Design of NFT minting page or website

As with any other typical website, you will need to design your Minting page or NFT marketplace before developing it. There are two types of NFT websites:

Brochure Website with Minting Feature

A Minting page is a simple website that allows the end-user to visit a website and mint an NFT directly from the page. These websites will likely consist of a home, about, contact and the minting page. A core element of any NFT platform is to outline the project’s roadmap and promote the community and future of your NFT unique digital asset.

NFT Marketplace Design

The difference between a standard website with a minting page and an NFT marketplace is the number of pages that will need to be designed. An NFT marketplace allows the end-user to purchase and trade non-fungible tokens directly through the adaptive online platform.

NFT Marketplace Features:
  • Marketplace page to view available NFTs
  • NFT product page, including NFT details, the price and a button to purchase
  • NFT management page to view a purchased NFT and to view offers made on other non-fungible tokens
  • Any additional account pages

The cost of NFT marketplace development will be directed correlated to the design of the website (how many pages & how intricate the design is) and the complexity of the utility attached to the smart contract of the NFT market. For the NFT marketplace development, we have a dedicated team of developers who work with React.js and Next.js to build and launch your NFT marketplace platform.

Brochure website with Minting functionality

WhatsApp allows you to build a branded business profile that will be connected to your phone number. You can personalise this profile by putting your profile picture or your brand’s logo, which will help the clients recognise you and connect with you. This will allow them to know who is sending them messages. WhatsApp also allows you to let others know more about your business. You can use the About section to write a small story about your company and what it does.

NFT Marketplace Platforms

NFT platforms are often more complex than a standard brochure website that allows users to mint an NFT. An example of an NFT marketplace is Opensea, while there are several other top NFT marketplaces such as Nifty Gateway and Rareible. The core functionality associated with NFT marketplaces allows NFT owners to purchase and trade their digital assets via an NFT marketplace app.

NFT development services such as this take a considerable amount of time to develop; some of the functionality required when creating NFT marketplaces can be found listed below.

NFT Platform Functionality Includes
  • Efficient NFT Buying System (MetaMask Wallet Integration)
  • Smart Contract Integration
  • Direct NFT Creation & Create Listings
  • Blockchain Development Services
  • Store NFTs
  • Price History of NFTs sold via the marketplace

Infrastructure, security & ongoing costs

The development of an NFT marketplace platform can become a complex project. While a typical website can be secured relatively easily, NFT marketplaces handle transactions and smart contracts that must be safe against vulnerabilities.

The infrastructure must be set up to host the staging environment of the NFT marketplace when initially developing and then prepared for when the website goes live. The recommended hosting platform to use for NFT marketplace development would be AWS.

What is AWS (Amazon Web Services)?

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a cloud computing platform that provides customers with a wide range of services, including storage, computing power, content delivery, and more. AWS is a comprehensive, easy-to-use, and cost-effective platform that helps businesses of all sizes take advantage of the benefits of cloud computing.

AWS offers a pay-as-you-go pricing model that allows you to only pay for the services you use, making it an affordable option for businesses of all sizes. In addition, AWS provides a number of features and tools that make it easy to get started with cloud computing, including a simple interface and management console.

Security & Ongoing Costs

As with any other website that involves purchasing and trading, websites are no different and should be protected against malicious acts. To do this, relevant security software should be installed on the hosting platform and regular checks and vulnerability reviews carried out.

While no platform is ever 100% safe against an attack, it is important to do your utmost to secure your NFT marketplace.

How much does it cost to create an NFT marketplace?

As you can see, there are multiple factors when building an NFT marketplace platform. Using Blockchain technology is still relatively new, and it is an important phase of the project to detail precisely how you want your NFT to work and its utility. The key points to determine the NFT marketplace development cost are as follows:

  • Do you want users to trade via your NFT marketplace?
  • What type of NFTs are you selling, and what is their utility?
  • How many non-fungible tokens will there be?
  • What blockchain technology will you use?
  • The functionality of your NFT marketplace
