📃Deploying a smart contract

In this tutorial, we will explain how to deploy your generative NFT collection on the blockchain. This is the first step before adding artwork and pricing information. For this type of collection, you need an ERC721 contract.

Step 1: Go to the Mintpad Website

Go to https://app.mintpad.co/.

Step 2: Select 'NFT Drop'

Select the 'NFT Drop' option.

After selecting 'NFT Drop', the platform will take you to the smart contract settings.

Step 3: Select the Blockchain

Select the blockchain on which you want to launch your collection.

Tip: If you hover over the question marks, you will get a simple explanation of what each form or box means.

Step 4: Fill in the Symbol/Ticker

Fill in the symbol/ticker box. This will show up in the hash of the smart contract, so consider it like a stock ticker.

Step 5: Fill in Your Collection Name

Fill in the name for your collection.

Step 6: Fill in the Creator Royalties

Fill in the creator royalties. These are a set percentage that you receive from secondary NFT sales on marketplaces. Most collections set royalties anywhere from 2-10%.

Note: Your sales recipient address should already be filled in. This is the wallet address with which you created this smart contract. You can choose to edit this if needed.

Step 7: Deploy Smart Contract

Click on 'Deploy smart contract'. A wallet transaction will pop up, and you can approve the transaction by clicking on 'Confirm'.

From there, the platform will take you to the general settings page.
