Next, you need to fill out the required fields to create and mint an NFT. For this example, we are adding the details manually but you can use another app like Google Sheets to fetch data and autofill the fields. They are described below:

  1. Contract ID: This is your previously created contract ID that represents the collection you want to create the NFT in.
  2. Fungible: This flag indicates whether your created NFT is fungible(true) or non-fungible(false). Fungible means there can be unlimited NFTs of the same type with no difference between them. Non-fungible means there can be multiple NFTs of the same type but all of them will be different from one another (each minted NFT will have a unique id).
  3. Name: The name of the NFT.
  4. Description: Description of the NFT.
  5. Image URL: URL of the image that will represent your created NFT.
  6. External URL: You can add an external URL to your NFT. This can be anything such as a link to your website.
  7. Mint Address: This is the wallet address of your end-user where the NFT will be minted/transferred.
  8. Mint Amount: This represents how many NFTs you want to mint to your end-user's wallet.
  9. After filling all the fields, click on Continue and then Test step.
