Minting a Token

Minting the exact same artifact twice will result in your account being flagged. Make sure not to mint the same token twice unless you burn it beforehand.
Once you minted a token, it is not possible to edit any of its metadata (name, description, tags etc.). Please make sure that everything is correct before you mint the token. The only way to fix a faulty token is by burning and re-minting it.
Before minting a token, you'll first have to create a collection for the token to be minted in. If you haven't yet created a collection, please follow the Creating a collection guide.
The first step is to navigate to the token creation page by clicking on your profile image at the top right and then clicking on create.
The following can be specified when creating a new token:

Description
Limit
Collection

Server
This is only used for the purpouse of uploading your artifact. Choose a server that is as close as possible to you geographically. This will not have any impact on the token minted but only on the upload experience.
​
Once you are happy with your token you can click on Continue at the bottom of the form. This will trigger the upload to IPFS and will give you a last chance to check whether all the files are ok.
If your file doesn't look right, please double-check it. Objkt does not modify the files you mint in any way, we don't compress them, convert them, apply filters, change colors, strip metadata, nothing.
Stripping sensitive personal data from your files metadata is your responsibility, for instance geo-location data.
Once the upload is done, you'll be able to click on the links to view the artifact and token metadata that will be minted:

If everything looks fine, you can go ahead and click Mint to create your token. Note: Once you confirmed the transaction, it may take 30-60 seconds for your token to be visible on objkt.
