Uploading Assets to IPFS
Learn how to upload your NFT data on distributed storage systems.
To use the DropKit Batch Upload, you need to first upload all your images in Pinata or IPFS. Here's a quick guide you can follow to upload your asset using Pinata - a popular distributed storage system. These storage systems consist of networks around the world called "nodes" that help users store and share data.
However, if you plan on selling or being compatible with other marketplaces please read file asset size and requirements or else your file may not upload, upload corrupted, or not show correctly.

Overview:

  • Upload all of your images in one folder and rename the images according to sequence (1,2,3...).
  • Get the generated links and put them in your CSV sheet.
  • Use Export JSON or directly import CSV in DropKit batch upload.

Uploading to Pinata

Pinata is an IPFS pinning service that allows users to store their data on an IPFS node without risk of deletion. Pinata helps you upload your images on your own private IPFS node. The service supports any and all file types (images, video, music and more). However, please note that OpenSea currently does not support mp3's.
  • Step 1: Go to Pinata and sign up to create your account.
  • Step 2: Upload your folder as shown below:
