Mint NFTs

Online Faucet

You can request test funds from the Shimmer Testnet Faucet.

You can use a node running the stardust update to mint non-fungible tokens (NFTs). To do so, you will only need to add some funds to your account, define the native token's options and call the Account.mint_nfts(nft_options, options) function.


You can also find this guide in the native iota.js library

Code Example

The following example will:

  1. Create an account manager.
  2. Get Alice's which was created in the first guide.
  3. Create the NftOptions.
  4. Mint the NFT by calling the Account.mint_nfts(nft_options, options) function.

This example uses dotenv, which is not safe for use in production environments.
