QuickStart 1: Airdrop 1 NFT to a series of wallet or email addresses

In this scenario, you will create a collection with a single NFT (using ERC-1155) to then airdrop it to multiple recipients. Target recipients will be designated either using an ethereum wallet address, or an email address.

For a recipient with a wallet address, NFT will be directly minted to this address, while for a recipient with an email address, an email will be sent with a personal claim link to later redeem the NFT.

Steps to follow:

  1. Create the collection and deploy the smart contract
  2. Add 1 item (NFT) to the collection and lock it for minting
  3. a. Airdrop to a wallet address (using a mint request)
  4. b. Airdrop to an email address (using an email claim)

Get our Quickstart Postman collection to run this example with your own organization.

QuickStart 2: Sell multiple NFTs

In this scenario, you will create a collection with multiple NFTs (using ERC-721) to then sell them using a public primary market sale (primary listing).

Steps to follow:

  1. Create the collection and deploy the smart contract
  2. Add items (NFTs) to the collection and lock them for minting
  3. Create a listing to put NFTs for sale
  4. (During the sale) Generate a purchase intent for a customer (from your purchase web application)

Get our Quickstart Postman collection to run this example with your own organization.

QuickStart 3: Snapshot a NFT contract

In this scenario, you will generate a snapshot of a NFT contract to get the list of active NFT holders.

Steps to follow:

  1. Request a snapshot generation with custom options (targeting TheMerge: Regenesis NFT contract)
  2. Check snapshot generation status (generation can take a few minutes depending on selected options)
  3. Get the list of NFTs holders once snapshot generation is completed
