Creating or importing collections

The very first step to create your own NFT storefront or marketplace will be creating your collection. Before minting on MainNet you can connect your wallet on TestNet. Begin with some basics:

  1. Create your own MetaMask wallet. See instructions on their website;

  2. You will also need get ETH, BNB or MATIC (Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, Polygon respectively) to cover the gas fees to mint your very first collection. You can create your account on Kraken or Binance to buy the tokens with credit cards or wiretransfer;

  3. Once you've bought the tokens to cover your gas fees, send them to the wallet created in step 1;

Now, you should have your wallet and the tokens to cover gas fees.

To create your first collection, connect your wallet with a button on top-right corner and then navigate to "Collection" on the left side:

Next, click "Create Collection" on the top right corner, you'll be transferred to the first step of the process:

There are different options here:

  1. Choose your chain: we're EVM agnostic and that means you can create collections on any EVM-compatible chain. For now let's use Binance Smart Chain as an example;

  2. There are 2 different types of Collection standards, ERC721 or ERC1155. You can read more about their differences here;

  3. Choose the name, symbol and write a description of your collection;

Now define royalty fees for your collection. Royalties are awarded to Collection creators from secondary sales. This means that anyone buying the NFT's from your collections will be able to sell them later to someone else - and by doing that will have to contribute a percentage % back to you as an original creator:

Now you're set! Click "Create" and your collection should be ready!

In (hopefully) rare cases, you'll get a failure message. Please report them using "Report Bug" button on the bottom right corner of the app.
