Webcomics for the web3 so that content creators can find new ways to monetize their comics and users can support their favorite artists by collecting NFTs of their publications
Web3comics is a web3 application published in the Polygon testnet Mumbai where comic creators can publish content page by page and readers can support their favorite authors by purchasing and collecting NFTs of the publications. It uses Ceramic network and IDX to handle the users profile which allow users to post comments with their identities. Readers will be able to purchase NFTs of the comic pages they like and the amount will be transferred to the author.
How it's made
We used ceramic IDX to show the user's profiles. Comics, their pages and user comments are stored in TileDocuments from ceramic. We chose Ceramic so that authors can publish new pages to their comics in a mutable data streams, as well so that users can continuously post more comments. Images are stored in IPFS/Filecoin using web3.storage and some tools from nft.storage, we didn't used nft.storage for storing metadata because I noticed the API was too slow and sometimes timeouted. For the blockchain we chose Polygon (Mumbai testnet) since this allows faster transfer and low fees which is a priority in a platform where the NFTs sold could cost than the Ethereum L1 feesTechnologies used
