  2. Create an NFT

1. Configure your application

After getting your application set up in your creator portal, grab the needed:

  • auth token
  • application id
  • contract id that the NFT will be minted from
  • token template id to use as a base for your NFTs metadata
# Get an auth token using your Developer Portal credentials.
# Your application id is also in the Developer Portal.
APP_ID = ""
# Get your contract id from a previously created contract, or create a new one.
# Get your template id from a template associated with your contract, or create
# a new one.

2. Set the wallet to receive the NFT

This wallet address will receive the minted token.

# Set the address to mint the NFT to

3. Configure the NFT metadata

Set the metadata for the NFT. You can modify this after its minted.

# Configure the NFT's metadata

4. Mint a NFT!

Send a POST request to the API with the wallet and token metadata in the request body. You should receive a 201 status code if it worked.

def mint_nft(auth_token, app_id, wallet, metadata):
    """Mint a NFT to a wallet of your choice."""

    response = requests.post(
        json={"initialOwner": wallet, "token": metadata},
            "Authorization": f"Bearer {auth_token}",
            "Content-Type": "application/json",
    print("NFT minted successfully", response.status_code == 201)
    return response
