I have a collection of pictures, which I would like to list as NFTs on a popular NFT marketplace. I followed the official tutorial on Cardano developers website, however, the example shows the creation of just one NFT.

Does a repository, or some other source exist, which could guide me through the process of creation of multiple NFTs in one shot? I've seen one answer to my question but it seems to be not very convenient way when the number of NFTs to be minted is high (i.e. 100, 1000, 10000).

Best regards

The CIP25: NFT Metadata Standard allows you to specify multiple asset names, but keep in mind, you need to include the metadata in the transaction itself so you will never be able to list a high amount of this metadata, certainly not over a 100.

If you do not use the onchain metadata, but rather store your NFT metadata off-chain in the Cardano Foundation registry, you might be able to mint much more tokens in one shot.

  • Thanks for the info! Out of curiosity, how does it relate to storing metadata on IPFS system like Pinata or Blockfrost? Do I have to store it in the registry or can I use third party service like the ones mentioned?

  • At the moment, both off-chain and on-chain metadata are not stored on IPFS, just the "content" of the NFT. Nov 19, 2021 at 16:54
