The Lost Worlds Tech Stack

How Lost Worlds Works

Lost Worlds makes it possible to collect NFTs that are attached to certain real world locations. Unlike most NFT experiences which are done on a desktop, Lost Worlds is a mobile dApp. Users have to use the mobile application and travel to certain locations in order to be eligible to mint the NFT bound to it.

The Graph

Our complete product wouldn’t be possible without The Graph. By indexing transaction events, we are able to build coherent entities like Locations and Tokens that are fully equipped with all data and relationships related to them.


Lost Worlds’ NFTs live on Arweave, the immutable, accessible permastorage blockchain. Arweave underscores the perpetuity of NFTs. No matter what happens, there will always be a place that stores the files for your Lost World NFTs meaning the hard work you put it to travel to the NFTs never goes to waste. With ever decreasing cost of storage and ever increasing file serving speed, we’re confident it’s the perfect home for your NFTs.


Of course we wouldn’t be able to do anything without the decentralized Avalanche network. Having people venture out to collect NFTs in the real world meant we needed real speed and an affordable cost. Ethereum, with proof of work, was too cumbersome to allow speedy minting around the world. Gas fees would also turn off people from traveling to the NFTs.
