NFT based gated content

NFT based gated content allows website owners to restrict access to a certain section of the website. Visitors log in to the website with their cryptocurrency wallet and web3.0 authenticates the visitor's ownership of the wallet. If the wallet contains the specified NFT collection access to restricted content is authorized.

What are NFT based gated content?

Non-fungible tokens are unique tokens used to register an image, video, or any form of digital item on the blockchain and are stored in cryptocurrency wallets like Metamask, Ledger, and Trezor.

In gated content, also referred to as content gating, website owners can restrict access to the content on their website and limit it to specific visitors by hiding the data behind NFT restricted portals.

To view the restricted content, the visitors have to log in to the website using a cryptocurrency wallet. Login using the wallet can be done through one of the three processes and all three processes are supported by Web3.0.

For the first process QR code is available on the website and can be used by apps like WalletConnect. Second, access can is granted directly if the visitor has a wallet extension installed with the browser for eg. cryptocurrency wallets like MetaMask.The third process can use a hard wallet like ledger or trezor.

Once a visitor does a crypto wallet login to the website, the web3.0 authentication verifies the visitor’s ownership of the wallet. It verifies whether the visitor is the true owner of the wallet.

After ownership of the wallet is confirmed, the wallet should have the required NFT collection for accessing the gated content. The required NFT collection is specified by the website owner.

If the visitor does not own the NFTs, they will be directed to the smart contract address for purchasing the NFT. A few famous NFT marketplaces are OpenSea, Rarible, and Mintable.

How does the NFT based gated content work?

NFT based gated content, content gating, or token gated communities all work on the principle of granting access to restricted content only when the user holds the specific NFT collection. Here website owners lock certain content behind NFT-restricted portals. The content is not accessible to all the visitors landing on the website. This locked or restricted content on the website forms a token gated community. Visitors do a cryptocurrency wallet login to the website. The wallet should contain the NFT collection mentioned by the website owner to access the restricted content. This collection could be something popular like NFT art or NFT videos or tweets.

NFT based gated content works with web 3.0 which is used to authenticate and verify the visitor’s wallet ownership status that they have used to login to the website. If the visitors possess the wallet's ownership along with the required NFT collection they can access the NFT restricted content.

Web 3.0 authenticates the visitor’s ownership of the crypto wallet when they log in to the website using the crypto wallet.

On successful authentication, if the visitor possesses the NFT collection specified by the website owner, they will be granted access to the NFT restricted content.

Visitors who do not possess the required NFT collection will be directed to the NFT marketplace for purchase.
