Creating Your Own NFT Collection

Learn how to fill in collection details when creating your first smart contract using NiftyKit

You are the full and only owner of the collection you created on NiftyKit and each smart contract is tied to your wallet address.

Using your wallet you can execute blockchain commands to your smart contract for drop functions like starting a sale or withdrawing your earnings once your minting is complete.

NiftyKit cannot execute administrative commands on your owned contract.

This refers to the initial sale of your NFTs directly to collectors.

These are sales that happen after the primary sale, where collectors or investors resell the digital items they bought from you. You might receive a percentage of the resale price as a royalty.

Royalty Percentage
