Creating Your First Drop Contract

Learn how to create your no-code NFT drop smart contract for blind minting, NFT reveal, 10k, or generative art projects.
Quick guidelines to help you navigate your DropKit dashboard.

Step 1: Launch DropKit

You are the full and only owner of the smart contracts you create 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.
Note: NiftyKit can not execute administrative commands on your owned contract.
Once you log in, you will be directed to your creator dashboard. To create your first NFT drop navigate to the [Create] button and then click [Drop]

Follow the steps below:
  1. 1.
    Choose a Blockchain: Ethereum, Polygon, or Optimism
  2. 2.
    Choose your Contract Type: ERC721 or ERC721A
  3. 3.
    Choose to use OpenSea Royalty Registry method

  6. 6.
    Set Royalty Percentage

Step 2: Customize Your Contract

OpenSea requires all smart contracts to use their royalty registry to enforce creator royalties on-chain.
By using their registry, your royalties will be respected on OpenSea.

Step 3: Create Smart Contract

Once you have configured your smart contract you will need to click Create Now and you will be prompted to connect your Metamask wallet and pay gas fees to create your smart contract.

Step 4: Save as Draft or Mint

Once your drop contract draft has been saved, you can either proceed to mint or exit DropKit. If you exit DropKit, you can always come back to your draft via the creator dashboard.

When minting, be sure you have a digital wallet and crypto in order to pay for transaction costs and gas fees.
