Hi… Thanks for the article, it’s very useful and exhaustive… However, can you please indicate what’s the typical cost today (including gas fees) for deploying a custom NFT smart contract to the Mainnet??
Welcome to the community
I recently deployed a simple ERC721 NFT (generated using OpenZeppelin Contracts Wizard: https://blog.openzeppelin.com/wizard) and with a gas price of 150 Gwei this cost ~ 0.4 ETH, with a cost of minting each token at ~0.1 ETH.
I would recommend determining the best time to deploy and mint using tools such as https://www.gasnow.org/
Hi @abcoathup, thanks for the response, I had the same question! For the ~0.1 ETH per mint, is it possible to reduce this cost and pre-mint 100 tokens to one address as part of the contract deployment?
You could create a batch mint to mint a batch of tokens to one address. I recommend trying it out on a public testnet.
Does that require implementing an ERC1155 contract or is it possible just with an ERC721?
You could do that with an ERC721
