Docs for using the Crossmint Mint API via the Quicknode add-on, at marketplace.quicknode.com
Note this RPC integration currently only works on Solana devnet. Mainnet and Polygon support launches mid-October, 2022. Follow our twitter for more announcements.
The Mint API allows you to create NFTs and send them directly to a user's web3 wallet, or to an email address. When an email address is specified, we create a wallet for the user who can then export their NFT or access it any time for free.
This page documents how to use the Minting API more conveniently as a Quicknode RPC url. The same functionality is also exposed through a REST API for those not using Quicknode.
Enable the Quicknode add-on
First, create a Quicknode account if you didn't have one already! Go to www.quicknode.com and follow the steps there. Be sure to also enable billing.
Second, enable one or more nodes for the blockchains you plan to use. Pay special attention to whether you are enabling the mainnet or testnet versions of your blockchain of choice.
Please note: at this time, the Crossmint Minting API is only available for Solana Devnet, with mainnet and Polygon coming soon.
You can also get the NFT address on chain, amongst other metadata, from this API. Note that minting typically completes in under 10 seconds, but can (on rare occasions) go beyond a few minutes.
3. Notify your users
Once the mint is complete, let the user know and show them their NFT. If you chose to send the NFT to an email address, that NFT will be deposited on a unique custodial wallet for that user. The user can access their NFT by signing in with their email at:
The Crossmint Minting API makes it easy to create NFT collections and NFT mints, in a way that you don't need to worry about interacting with the blockchain, by managing all these interactions for you.
However, the Crossmint minting API does not impose any lock-in: you can transfer ownership of your collection to your own crypto wallet if you choose to.
For doing so, reach out via crossmint.io/support and our support team will be glad to help.
