Updated over a week ago

Go to dashboard

Get started by clicking on 'Mint NFT' to access the minting form.

Minting is recommended on desktop. To mint on mobile, you'll need to use a browser within a wallet app like MetaMask or Coinbase wallet

Connect your wallet

You’ll need a crypto wallet. Verisart supports MetaMask, Coinbase and WalletConnect.

If you don’t have a wallet, view our Guide to setting up a MetaMask wallet.

Select blockchain

Mint NFTs either on Ethereum or Polygon. Learn more.

You may need to switch to the correct network before minting, see notification.

Minting on Polygon: For paid subscribers, Verisart covers Polygon minting costs so you do not have to purchase any cryptocurrency.

Minting on Ethereum: You must cover gas fees directly and require sufficient ETH in your wallet to complete minting.

Select or create a contract

Choose to mint on the Verisart contract or create their own custom contract. The Verisart Contract is managed by Verisart and other creators can also mint NFTs on this contract.

Custom contracts

Only available on Individual Premium & Pro plans & all Business plans

Deploying your own custom contract provides one home/collection for all your NFTs or a specific project and a direct provenance from you to your collector. Each NFT is minted with your branded token and you can configure your own royalties in OpenSea.

If you have an existing Manifold contract, you can also choose to import your contract.

Add a creator

When minting or certifying your work for the first time, you need to add yourself as a creator by verifying your identity, providing some information and a signature image.

Add your NFT file and metadata

Upload your file, add the NFT title, year of production, description and tags.

If your NFT is a video, we suggest a thumbnail but you can choose to change it.

Set royalties

With NFTs minted on Verisart, you can receive royalties from OpenSea, Rarible and other EIP-2981 standard-compatible platforms. Set the percentage of royalties you want to receive and the wallet address they should be sent to. Read our guide to NFT royalties.

Integrated certificate

Unlockable rewards

Unlockable rewards enable you to give collectors exclusive access to files or specific instructions. Learn more about unlockable rewards.


Only available on Individual Premium & Pro plans & all Business plans

Customize your certificate with your own branding. Learn more about certificate customization

Additional files & notes

The Verisart certificate enables you to tell the full story of your work with additional files, notes and details about yourself.


Once minted, the NFT metadata can't be changed. Ensure you review all information prior to minting.

  • Hit the 'Mint' button when ready

  • Pay the gas fees and sign the transaction

Minting on Polygon: Verisart covers costs for paying subscribers.

Minting on Ethereum: You’ll need enough ETH in your wallet to cover the gas fees.

Congratulations your NFT is minted!
