NFT Collection

Craft collections of unique NFTs, allowing creators to showcase their digital assets.

The NFT Collection contract emerges as the optimal avenue when the intention revolves around cultivating a repository of unparalleled NFTs, albeit without the conventional "drop" or "release" mechanism that often accompanies community-driven claims.

In contrast to the NFT Drop contract, the NFT Collection contract abstains from the concept of lazy minting. Instead, the NFTs are promptly minted as soon as they become part of the collection.

Consequently, the avenue remains open for executing customary actions—transferring the NFTs, facilitating their sale within marketplaces, and any other conventional NFT operations—without any encumbrance.

For sophisticated scenarios, the NFT Collection contract is fortified with signature-based minting capabilities, elevating its utility and versatility.

Wide Spectrum of Use Cases & Illustrative Scenarios

Listing my NFTs

After having created your collection you must want to sell it in your own DApp. Below we explain how to list your NFT and even ask for your own ERC20 token.

First of all you need to import your custom tokens in your DApp in order to make them tradeable. Check out the documentation and learn how to do it.

After importing the tokens we want to receive / trade on our DApp, let's go to our DApp and check the NFT we want to list

We see in the short above that we listed that NFT and requested our own ERC20 token previously imported into our DApp. Do the same for all the remaining NFTs in your DApp and voilà! 🧙‍♂️your NFTs were properly listed.
