Case Study: Prohibition
Decent’s seamless crosschain payment solution helps Prohibition meet collectors at their point of liquidity with accessible one-click minting with any cryptocurrency.
Generative art for everyone
Prohibition is an open platform for onchain generative art built on the Art Blocks engine. As the first generative art NFT marketplace deployed on Arbitrum, Prohibition is dedicated to offering both creators and collectors the most accessible way to create and experience generative art.
Seeking the most seamless collection experience to maximize mints
In order to offer the best end-to-end experience for onchain artists and collectors, Prohibition knew that their responsibility was both to build a great product empowering high quality creation as well as offer the most frictionless minting experience for fans of generative art. While the Art Blocks engine powered the former, the ever-expanding multichain ecosystem posed a challenge to deliver on the latter as collectors were forced to go through the tedious process of bridging their cryptoassets to Arbitrum in order to mint NFTs on Prohibition’s platform.
As more and more blockchains with different offerings and benefits enter the ecosystem, marketplaces and platforms must rise to the challenge of meeting potential users where their point of liquidity lies — a task much easier said than done. Purchasing assets across chains meant users had to bridge and swap their tokens to the destination chain before they buy, a process that required users to find compatible bridging mechanisms that could often take minutes to complete the movement of assets.
Expanding Prohibition’s addressable market
The Box enables Prohibition to tackle the demands of the growing blockchain ecosystem with most seamless onchain checkout experience, allowing collectors to mint generative art on Prohibition with any token, on any chain, in just one click. By adding the ability for collectors to choose how they wish to mint, The Box opens up Prohibition’s addressable market to collectors outside of those that have ETH on Arbitrum.
Integrations set up to scale
After integrating The Box into their marketplace, Prohibition can rest easy knowing the payment modal will continue to evolve as more blockchains enter the ecosystem. Decent will continue to expand The Box’ chain coverage, giving Prohibition the option to select the chains they accept payment from as new ones become available. Boasting highly customizable infrastructure, The Box Hooks allowed Prohibition to easily integrate the payment model into their existing platform without making changes to their UI, as well as customizing the checkout experience to meet the look and feel of the platform.
“The Box Hooks are a game changer. They enabled our app to go crosschain without having to make any compromises to our UI. No need to calculate the optimal swap/bridge route or fetch users' token balances for each chain because they just handle it for you. The best part has been our users' reaction. Can't recommend them enough!” - Thomas, CTO of Prohibition
