Mint an NFT
Start with selecting
Single Mint in the sidebar to prepare and mint your NFT.
Here are some explanations for the various fields.
Select the profile you want to use for minting. This profile will be connected to the NFT and identifies the creator.
You can assign this new NFT to a collection if you want to group your NFTs together. If you didn't create a collection yet, head over to create a collection.
Name and Description
This information is prominently displayed with the NFT on explorers and marketplaces.
By assigning a license to the NFT, buyers of your NFTs will directly see what rights they will receive when owning your NFTs. The content of your license will largely depend on what you as the creator want to achieve.
Some licenses used by other projects:
- Creative Commons licenses
- CantBeEvil licenses
- Custom licenses such as the Marmotverse License
When in doubt, consult a lawyer to pick the right license for your project. This is not legal advice.
Make sure to point to a plain text file or PDF file here. Pointing to a website will only work if the content of the website never changes.
This field is read only if you defined the license URL in your collection.
One great feature of Chia NFTs is the automatic payment of royaties on secondary sales!
For example, when you set
Royalty percentage to 5% and your NFT sells for 1 XCH on the seconday market, you will
automatically receive a payment of 0.05 XCH.

Optionally set a blockchain fee if you want to speed up the minting process in times of a busy network. Most of the time you can leave this at 0.
