Prerequisites to build an NFT Auction Marketplace

  1. NodeJS version > 16.0.0
  2. NPM version > 6.0.0

Steps to develop your own NFT Auction Marketplace

3. Then build the UI and make the index.html file to paste the following codes.


Here we have five sections for the frontends:

A. The first one is to create an item section where you can mint NFTs.

B. The second is the auction section where you can put your NFTs on auction. Also, it has three fields:

C. The third section is for bidders who want to bid on the auctioned NFT. The user has to enter the sale ID and the Bid offer he/she wants to make for the NFT.

D. Next, there’s a bid section through which the NFT owner can accept the bid made by the bidders.

E. After that, there is a withdrawal bid section where bidders can withdraw the bid they have made. For that, the bidder needs to provide the Sale ID and Bid ID in the present field.

F. Lastly, there’s a cancel sell section. Here, NFT owners can cancel the auction of their NFTs by only entering the Sale ID.

Now run the app with a liver server.

After pasting all the codes, your NFT Auction Marketplace will look something like this!

const itemURI = document.getElementById(“txtCreateItemURI”);const createItemButton = document.getElementById(“btnCreateItem”);
createItemButton.onclick = mintNft;const itemURI1 = document.getElementById(“txtCreateItemURI1”);
const itemURI2 = document.getElementById(“txtCreateItemURI2”);const auctionItemTokenId = document.getElementById(“numAuctionItemTokenId”);
const auctionItemPrice = document.getElementById(“numAuctionItemPrice”);
const auctionItemTime = document.getElementById(“numAuctionItemTime”);const auctionItemButton = document.getElementById(“btnAuctionItem”);
auctionItemButton.onclick = auctionNft;const BidItemSaleId = document.getElementById(“numBidItemSaleId”);
const BidItemPrice = document.getElementById(“numBidItemPrice”);const BidItemButton = document.getElementById(“btnBidItem”);
BidItemButton.onclick = bid;const ExecuteSaleId = document.getElementById(“numExecuteSaleId”);
const ExecuteBidId = document.getElementById(“numExecuteBidId”);const ExecuteBidItemButton = document.getElementById(“btnExecuteBidItem”);
ExecuteBidItemButton.onclick = executeBid;const WithdrawSaleId = document.getElementById(“numWithdrawSaleId”);
const WithdrawBidId = document.getElementById(“numWithdrawBidId”);const WithdrawBidItemButton = document.getElementById(“btnWithdrawBidItem”);
WithdrawBidItemButton.onclick = withdrawBidMoney;const CancelSaleId = document.getElementById(“numCancelSaleId”);const CancelItemSaleButton = document.getElementById(“btnCancelItemSale”);
CancelItemSaleButton.onclick = cancelSale;init();

Now, you’re all ready to run it in the terminal.
