๐Ÿ”ตCreating a Collection

Creating a new collection will deploy your own smart contract on the Tezos blockchain. This transaction will cost around 1-2 tez in gas and storage fees. These fees do not go to objkt.

Before minting a token, you will first create a collection for the token to be minted in. You can think of a collection like a "container" that contains your tokens. For each collection you create, we will calculate different statistics like the floor price and volume. Creating a collection will deploy an FA 2 smart contract on the Tezos blockchain, which provides you with provenance and flexibility.

Step 1 - Click on "Create" in the user menu

Follow this link: https://objkt.com/mint/collection or click on Create in the user menu and then on the Collection tab to reach the Collection creation form.

Step 2 - Input collection data

In the next step, you can input your collection data such as the collection image, collection name and collection description.

Step 3 - Confirm the Transaction

Once you're happy with your new collection, click on the Create button at the bottom of the page and confirm the transaction with your wallet. Once this is done, it can take anywhere from 30 seconds to 2 minutes until the collection is visible on the objkt.com UI. If you don't see the collection immediately, please be patient and wait a bit before trying again to prevent duplicate collections. If the collection isn't showing up after several minutes, try hard-refreshing the browser: Windows: CTRL + SHIFT + R, OSX: CMD + SHIFT + R.

Once the collection is confirmed, it will show up on your profile and you'll be able to select it from the Collection Dropdown on the Mint Token form.
