Create a 1 of 1
Updated over a week ago


The 1 of 1 flow allows for the creation of a single NFT as part of the ERC721 token standard. This is typically used to put a single piece of artwork on chain to have one owner. This token can then be listed for sale on a platform like Opensea or Rarible, or ingested into a platform like Superrare.

Typically this standard isn't used if you are looking to sell multiple editions of the same artwork.

This token is a single token with a single owner.

After preparing the metadata for the token, select a recipient for your token. Here you'll be able to mint it to self or an alternate address

  • Sending it to yourself will allow you to list the token for sale on tools like Manifold Gallery, Opensea or Rarible

  • Sending it to a recipient will allow you to 'airdrop' to an alternate address.
