What WP Smart Contracts Can Do For You
Broadly, WP Smart Contracts is an “easy way to manage Smart Contracts on multiple networks using WordPress.” More specifically, the plugin provides several opportunities to create those smart contracts in the form of:
- ERC-721 NFT Collectibles Marketplaces
- ERC-20/BEP-20 standard and advanced tokens
- ERC-20/BEP-20 staking
- Safe Crowdfunding campaigns
While there are some great templates for creating a cryptocurrency blog, this plugin helps you create a functional smart contracts platform.
WP Smart Contracts allows you to enter the blockchain market by connecting you to multiple networks through your WordPress site. It’s similar to WooCommerce in that it uses custom post types that allow you to fill out predetermined fields to get you set up in any aspect of the marketplace you want – even multiple markets on the same site.
Once you have some offerings created, you can trade them directly through your site. They are also transferable to any other account. All of the heavy lifting is handled by the MetaMask browser extension, which means your assets are safe from hackers.
