Zora Releases Developer Tools to Build “Cryptomedia”

Zora Protocol has unveiled documentation around its universal media protocol, offering developer tools to create perpetual markets for NFTs by baking an order book directly into the token.

Zora’s protocol creates assets that contain a market and media component, allowing NFTs to become independent of the platforms they are issued on, a concept they have called “cryptomedia.” Mirror and Catalog are some of the projects building on the platform. 

No two pieces of media on Zora are identical, ensuring the uniqueness of all content in the form of 1/1 Zora NFTs, or zNFTs. Zora is slowly rolling out its new product to whitelisted users. This has led to early beta testers claiming popular emojis and cementing their namesake along cat pictures and high-quality memes.
