Can we use offchain data through something like ChainLink and channel it to CNFTs to have them change in real time accordingly? Have got a great idea for a dynamic NFT project, but just want to know it's possible on Cardano first.

You would probably want to use native Plutus smart contracts for that.

Imagine a contract that accepts an NFT, burns it and mints a new one, with new properties.

    Yes, as long as it keeps to be non-fungible at all time. Jan 3, 2022 at 13:55
  • Ok, thanks. Think my idea might be a bit too ambitious for that. Unsure it's possible without a hell of a lot more knowledge than I have, or at all. Cheers. Feb 11, 2022 at 23:36
  • Every real time change would require burning and minting, meaning multiple TXs back to wallets that own one, all needing to be accompanied with ADA from somewhere. Will need to rethink. Feb 11, 2022 at 23:40
