How Does it Work

It's free, no previous blockchain experience needed, zero maintenance and takes less than 120 seconds:

  1. No ETH necessary and no need to spend money. You can mint anything as an NFT for free and green on Polygon, a layer 2 solution built on top of Ethereum πŸ› οΈ

  2. No learning curve i.e. you don't have to be Vitalik Buterin to get started. You don't need to learn Solidity, Web3.js or any other complicated blockchain tech. If you know how to use a simple REST API, you can turn anything into an NFT in less than 120 seconds 🏎️

  3. Zero maintenance: no need to write and deploy a solidity contract. No need to setup and manage your own complex infrastructure/backend. It's all taken care for you automatically πŸ—οΈ

Easy Minting

Easy minting is - you guessed it! - truly super simple as we are handling all the NFT and blockchain complexity automatically. One simple API call is all what it takes to turn anything into an NFT.

Easy minting

You just need to provide:

  1. A name for your NFT.
  2. A description for your NFT.
  3. The chain where the NFT will be minted. We recommend Polygon which enables free and green NFT minting. In short, it's the leading layer 2 scaling solution built on top of Ethereum. Goerli is Ethereum's testnet.
  4. The wallet address where to mint the NFT. If you want to mint to your own wallet, then provide your own wallet address (e.g. copy-paste from MetaMask). In both Polygon and Goerli cases, it's your regular Ethereum wallet address.
  5. The file URL or upload the file that you want to turn to an NFT. All file types are supported including binary, images, GIFs, videos, audio, documents, text, etc.

Your NFT is minted! That was easy, huh? 😎

In short, Easy mint automatically:

  1. Uploads the file to IPFS.
  2. Creates a metadata file (JSON) with the file's name, description and URL and uploads it to IPFS.
  3. Creates i.e. mints the NFT (with a reference to the metadata URI).

Customizable Minting

If you need more advanced minting functionalities such as deploying your own contract, custom file storage, etc., we have you covered. Going through the minting process step by step:

  1. Deploy your own contract with Deploy a contract for NFT products
  2. Upload your file to IPFS with Upload a file to IPFS
  3. Create and upload your NFT metadata file with Upload metadata to IPFS
  4. Mint NFTs to your contract with Customizable minting

Viewing, trading and selling your NFTs on OpenSea

After minting, the NFT will appear in the specified wallet. You can also see, sell or trade the NFT on OpenSea under your account (if you minted to your own wallet) or at NFTPort collection. It usually takes a few minutes for OpenSea to update their database. Check this to learn more about how to sell on OpenSea.
