We are delighted to announce that we have partnered with Numbers Protocol, a decentralized blockchain-based photo network, for creating community, value, and trust in digital media. We are honored to be the first official Numbers partner and we look forward to providing our users with all the benefits that come with it.
This article will cover our first collaboration together featuring — Numbers NFT Search Engine. We will share how it works, and why it just got even better through our partnership together!
What is a NFT Search Engine?
One of the highest requests that we receive from the Refinable community is about verification. How to become a verified profile? Or how to make sure that the NFT purchased it verified or not? As NFTs rocket in popularity, the Numbers team correctly identified that ownership and blockchain records were not enough to ensure the authenticity of digital assets. To solve these issues, they created the NFT Search Engine as a Numbers Protocol network tool. Their NFT Search Engine is a tool to ensure transparency of digital content in a growing NFT space.
Here’s how the Numbers’ NFT Search Engine works — Users can upload an NFT image or video, or input a Content ID (CID) in the search box. If the NFT exists, NFT Search Engine will output a preview of the asset and the details of the NFT, including its Token ID, Contract ID, Creator ID, Current Owner ID, transaction history, and Marketplace links. The information is available because of the transparency of the blockchain. This information helps users verify whether NFTs sold in the marketplace are authentic and can also help users check if the NFTs they own are truly unique.
The official beta version of NFT Search Engine will launch in December 2021.
Sofia Yan, Co-founder and CGO of Numbers Protocol, said, “We’re incredibly excited about our partnership with Refinable as it will help create more NFT verification awareness. Both Numbers and Refinable believe in the future applications of NFTs, and in the meantime, we want to ensure that our users have a way to verify them. Beyond simply searching for NFTs on our Search Engine, our partnership with Refinable will allow users to buy their favorite NFTs with just a click.”
Search and Buy NFTs with Refinable
With all of the tools that Numbers are building for their users, especially the NFT Search Engine, things just got a lot better with our partnership. Our platform allows users to manage their NFTs, trade and share with multi-chain support, as well as help NFT creators get discovered!
Partnering with Numbers Protocol was an easy choice, as both their vision and platform perfectly align with our platform functionalities. Users can search for an NFT through the Number’s NFT Search Engine, and can simply click on a link that leads to Refinable to finalize their purchase if it is up for sale. Buying an NFT has never been safer and easier.
Maxim Geerinck, CTO and Co-Founder of Refinable, said, “At Refinable, we want to ensure that our users can buy NFTs safely and worry-free. We are excited to accomplish this with Numbers Protocol to create a future for creators to protect their digital assets.”
With the NFT Search Engine, you can see just how “unique” an NFT is with how many tokens are in circulation. It’s also possible to see if a single NFT has multiple creator addresses. Situations like this bring up red flags because it means that two different creators minted the same image. This usually means that some sort of infringement has occurred. In these scenarios, Numbers’ NFT Search Engine has easily identified a potential violation.

Looking Forward to 2022
With 2021 coming to its last chapter, we can’t wait to create a safe and protected space for NFT content creators in 2022! We hope that our collaboration with the Numbers’ NFT Search Engine will be the first of many more to come.
