Edition

Create editions of ERC1155 tokens, facilitating limited releases and collectibles.

The Edition contract comes into its own when the aim is to unveil an array of NFTs built upon a common asset, while sidestepping the conventional "drop" or "release" mechanism that typically accompanies community-centric claims.

Distinct from the Edition Drop contract, this iteration forgoes the concept of lazy minting. Instead, the NFTs are promptly minted at the moment of their addition to the collection.

This approach endows you with the freedom to execute actions such as NFT transfers, marketplace sales, and any other conventional NFT operations.

For advanced scenarios, the Edition contract stands fortified with signature-based minting capabilities, further expanding its repertoire.

Insights into OpenSea Creator Earnings

This contract naturally accommodates the framework for OpenSea creator earnings. This mechanism empowers creators by default, with the possibility for the contract admin to toggle this support on and off via the setOperatorRestriction function in the contract explorer.

Practical Use Cases & Illustrative Scenarios
