What is an NFT?

NFTs, or nonfungible tokens, are unique assets that can’t be replaced with something else, and are verified and stored using blockchain technology. They can include everything from music to a website domain, but the current craze is really around digital artwork.

Probably if you want to create an NFT by yourself, you will need to learn frontend, solidity, etc. It will take some time then you may lose passion for creating an NFT.

However, there is a nice API, NFTPort that allows us to create an NFT easily. We can use it for free!!!

What is NFTPort

The Stripe for NFTs: One-Stop & Simple NFT Infrastructure & APIs for Developers

What we can do with NFTPort is to create an NFT by sending a POST request with some parameters. After sending the request, we can see an NFT on Opensea.

Easy minting w/file upload

I created a simple web application with next.js.


If you want to sell your NFT on Opensea, you will need to pay a small amount of money less $1 by Polygon-MATIC.

You can get Polygon on Coinbase then send it to your Metamask.

Before sending Polygon, you need to add the Polygon network to your Metamask. Chainlist allows you to do that with a couple of clicks.
