1. Recipes
  2. Create an NFT contract

1. Configure your application

Set your auth token and your application id.

# Get an auth token using your Developer Portal credentials.
# Your application id is also in the Developer Portal.
APP_ID = ""

2. Configure your contract settings

Set the contract details:

  • network is a required field
  • all the others are optional, see Create a contract reference for more detail.

The deployFrom field defaults to an internal Bitski address.

# Configure the NFT's metadata
    "contract": {
        "network": "rinkeby",
        "name": "Bitski Contract Recipe",
        "symbol": "BCR",
        "description": "Bitski Contract Recipe",
        "externalLink": "",
        "contractType": "SEMI_FUNGIBLE",

3. Create the contract

Send a POST request to the API with the authentication token and contract payload in the request body. You should receive a 200 status code if it worked.

def create_contract(auth_token, app_id, contract):
    """Create a NFT contract."""

    response = requests.post(
            "Authorization": f"Bearer {auth_token}",
            "Content-Type": "application/json",
    print("Created NFT contract successfully", response.status_code == 200)
    return response

4. Remember your contract id

After creating the contract, you will need to use the returned id to mint an NFT. It will be returned in the contract.id field of the JSON response.

response = create_contract(AUTH_TOKEN, APP_ID, CONTRACT)
contract_id = response.json()["contract"]["id"]
print(f"contract id is: {contract_id}")
  "contract": {
    "id": "12345678-da5b-494c-8719-bdba105e3612",
    "deploymentState": "DRAFT",
    "address": null,
    "network": "rinkeby",
    "name": "Bitski Contract Recipe",
    "description": "Bitski Contract Recipe",
    "externalLink": null,
    "contractType": "SEMI_FUNGIBLE",
