No-code NFT Platform
What is an NFT?
An NFT, or non-fungible token is an ownership record for a digital asset on the blockchain. It has unique metadata (it cannot be copied or substituted), that is stored in a digital wallet. NFTs are unique and irreplaceable, unlike traditional cryptocurrency tokens (think Bitcoin), which are like-for-like (or, fungible) with one another.
At first predominantly popular on the Ethereum blockchain (ETH) and NFT marketplaces such as OpenSea, these digital assets have become very popular in Web3, spreading to other blockchains such as Solana, Polygon, Tezos, and Bitcoin via Stacks, with its leading NFT marketplace Gamma.io. More recently, NFTs have spread to the Bitcoin blockchain, with the rise of Bitcoin Ordinals.
With interest in crypto and NFT art growing, NFT projects are moving towards projects with more utility and longterm uses in the metaverse and in the real world. The ecosystem is growing, with more and more entrepreneurs, artists, non-profits, brands and influencers joining the NFT community. Start-ups are building incredible new NFT marketplaces, DeFi apps, dApps and no-code tools for NFT creators.
What is a no-code platform?
Not all creators can code, and smart contracts and IPFS can be intimidating. No-code platforms solve this issue for creators seeking to join the world of NFTs.
With no-code platforms, which usually have a wide range of templates and no-code tools, NFT creators can design and launch their own collections and mint pages in minutes, with no coding skills needed. Some examples of no-code creator launchpads are Gamma.io on the Stacks and Bitcoin blockchain and ZeroCodeNFT which is multi-chain, supporting the ETH blockchain, Arbitrum, Avalanche, and many more. Other platforms such as Nifty and NFTGenerator offer art generator services that allow users to generate their collections by only providing traits and metadata. The creator will need to choose an NFT platform, set up a crypto wallet, and have their art ready. That's it.
Note that the crypto wallet you choose depends on the blockchain you want to launch your NFT collection on. Meta Mask and Trust Wallet are some of the most popular wallets, supported by the majority of blockchains, but if you would like to launch your NFT collection on the Stacks blockchain, you will need to set up a Leather or Xverse wallet. These wallets are also compatible with Bitcoin Ordinals, which are NFTs that live directly on the Bitcoin blockchain.
Create Ordinal NFTs on Gamma
NFT creation has evolved in many ways over the past few years and in 2023, Ordinal inscriptions made their way to the Bitcoin blockchain, allowing for the creation of NFTs directly on the L1. Gamma quickly launched its platform for inscribing Ordinals, making it possible for anyone to inscribe their own Ordinal with no coding knowledge. Through Gamma, users can create single inscriptions, bulk inscriptions, airdrops, Dutch auctions, collection mints, and now Prints, Gamma's fresh take on Editions.
Ordinal NFTs and recursive inscriptions offer many benefits, and we're excited to help artists join the world of digital artifacts on the Bitcoin blockchain. The smooth user experience allows creators to inscribe their work in a few easy steps, completely removing the need to run a Bitcoin node or have access to a miner. Our team has set up a number of tutorials and step-by-step guides to launching and managing an Ordinals collection on Gamma, so be sure to take a look!
Create Stacks NFT collections on Gamma
The Gamma platform specialises in collectibles and digital art, and helps promote curated works from unique creators. The platform offers three core products, with options for minting, selling, airdrops, buying, and auctioning NFT tokens, amongst other features.
The creator-first launchpad helps artists deploy their own NFT collection with fully tested, creator-owned, no-code smart contracts in minutes. Creators can sell their art at a fixed price or auction it. The user-first marketplace serves as a digital storefront for NFTs and allows users to find, explore, and collect extraordinary NFTs secured by Bitcoin, the most trusted and decentralized blockchain technology for digital assets. The social platform brings together creators and collectors in an engaging and Web3-native way.
Are you ready to create your first NFT collection? Go to create.gamma.io and follow a few easy steps. Select one of the available collection types depending on your project: Continuous, Editions, or Public Mint. Enter your collection details and upload your assets in one of the accepted formats (such as png, jpg, gifs etc). Optionally, you can also upload your metadata. Review your submission, confirm the transaction in your connected wallet (you can increase or lower gas fees via your wallet), and deploy your contract to the mainnet!
When your transaction is confirmed on the blockchain, your NFT collection is live, and you can find it under the "Created" tab on your profile.
When you deploy a collection using Gamma's white label Creator Portal, Gamma automatically collects 10% of mint revenues via a function within the smart contract. The Smart Contract Manager lets you set your royalties for sales on the secondary market, manage your collection mint button (enable or pause minting), freeze metadata and more.
Join the ecosystem
To join the world of NFTs, you'll need to consider which blockchains are of most interest to you, and purchase some cryptocurrencies. Some marketplaces such as Gamma offer a crypto on-ramp, allowing you to purchase crypto directly through the platform, with just a few clicks and a credit card.
