Mint on the Verisart contract or create/use your own custom contract.
Verisart contract vs Custom contract
What is the Verisart Contract?
The Verisart Contract is managed by Verisart and other creators can also mint NFTs on this contract.
If you mint NFTs on the Ethereum Verisart contract you need to cover the gas fees for minting the work (Polygon NFTs are free to mint on all our paid plans). Royalties are fixed for OpenSea and distributed by Verisart and variable for Rarible.
What is a Custom Contract?
Custom contracts provide a single home for all your NFTs or a specific project and a direct provenance from you to your collector.
Why create a custom contract?
Complete ownership and full control - only you can mint on the contract
Choose your own contract name and token ID
Each NFT gets minted with your branded token ID
Manage Royalties on OpenSea
Manage the contract details on other marketplaces like OpenSea and Rarible
Creating custom contracts
Create contracts by going to the 'Contracts' tab and clicking 'Create' or directly from the Minting form, under ‘Contract’, select ‘Custom contract’
On dashboard, click on the 'Contracts' tab
Click on 'Create'
Select blockchain: the blockchain you want to create the contract on.
