Features an NFT Minting Website Must Have

When launching your NFT minting platform, features are something you can’t ignore. This helps users navigate your platform comfortably. Remember to include these essential features in the platform. 

  • Attractive Storefront

This is the main feature of the minting platform, where you get artwork, bids, owner previews, price history, and more. Thus, this feature keeps you up-to-date with the latest trends on the platform. Moreover, it can attract users, which makes this feature highly accessible. 

  • Advanced Token Search

The search option allows visitors to find the first NFT listing on the platform in the blink of an eye. So, put this option on the top right side of the platform. The quick search option also goes a long way in increasing your sales. 

  • Quick Filters

Filters make it easier for users to find the right NFT in less time. You can decide based on price, filters, categories, and other details. This can narrow your search and help them find the latest additions, hot offers, and best-selling and trending content. It also allows users to select items faster and increase the probability of buying. 

  • Easy To Create Listings

Listing is hard to deny on the NFT platform. It allows creators to list their unique artwork and start earning. Allow creators to list items with simple steps. It can bring more talent to your platform. 

  • Push Notifications

Informing users about launching the latest developed NFT collection is just as essential as selling them. Thus, don’t ignore the importance of push notifications on your platform. Send alerts to registered users about your platform’s latest news, offers, and collectibles. 

  • Ultimate Bidding Option

Provide easy access to bid options for sellers and buyers on your platform. It attracts users, especially those who want flexibility in pricing and aren’t interested in buying articles at the starting price of the NFT. So, make bidding interesting for them on your minting website. 

Add bid expiry times on the page for more aggressive buying. You can also allow creators to bid on multiple artworks simultaneously. As if a particular creator sells the entire collection. Also, add a separate watch list to let users know about it. 

  • Multiple Wallet Options

Users always look for more secure places to receive and store non-fungible tokens. With this, you aren’t able to avoid the convenience of multiple wallet options. The reason is that multi-currency wallet options will never let your users stick to one payment mode. Offer them Ethereum, Bitcoin, Litecoin, Cash, and Cardano as crypto payment methods. 

  • Ratings And Reviews

Rating and review options are for beginners, especially those who don’t know where to start. The rating can speed up the selection process by looking at the number of people who bought or wanted to buy using the rating. Most importantly, NFT platform users always remain captivated by the highest-rated NFT and spend less time making a purchase decision. 

How to Create an NFT Minting Website?

To create an NFT minting site, you need to follow the steps below :

  • Create a Moralis Dapp
  • Connect the Moralis SDK and Initialize Moralis
  • Create the HTML File
  • Add the JavaScript Logic
  • Find a Smart Contract

Step 1: Creating a Moralis Dapp

To create a Moralis dapp, you first need a Moralis account. Once you open an account, navigate to the Moralis admin panel. The next thing to do is to click on the “Create New Dapp” button to start setting up your Moralis dapp. 

After you click on the button, you will be prompted to select the development environment. You can choose “Testnet,” “Mainnet,” or “Local Dev Chain.”

Once you have selected the desired environment, you must pick the network(s). It should also depend on where you plan to run your dapp. Finally, all left is to select a region, name your dapp, and click the “Create Your Dapp” button to launch the dapp. 

You have several options to discover with the dapp at your disposal. For instance, you can click the “Settings” button on your new dapp, showing various information. Then, under the “Dapp Details” tab, you will find the dapp credentials. Remember the dapp URL and the application ID, as you’ll need this information when initializing Moralis in the next step. 

Step 2: Connecting the Moralis SDK and Initializing Moralis

Now you should connect the Moralis SDK and initialize Moralis. We need the SDK as it allows us to use prepared snippets of Moralis code, which makes this development process much more accessible. By initializing Moralis, we connect the dapp to the code, allowing us to save information to our dapp’s database. 

It is pretty simple to connect the Moralis SDK, and all you have to do is to input the following two lines into your HTML file: 

<script src=””></script&gt;

<script src=””></script&gt;

Moreover, to initialize Moralis, you should include these two lines in your JavaScript file and add the dapp URL and application ID that we got in the first step: 

Moralis.initialize(“”); // Application ID from

Moralis.serverURL = “”; // Server URL from

Step 3: Creating the HTML File

The first file to cover is “index.html.” This is where you’ll find all the HTML code for the fields and buttons of the NFT minting website. Your website’s structure should depend on your needs and preferences as a developer, so there is no need to cover all the details of this file. However, there is an example of an HTML element from “index.html”:

<button class=”btn btn-primary” id=”submit” onclick=”login();”>Connect MetaMask</button>

However, the HTML elements themselves aren’t interactive. Thus, we need to add some JavaScript logic to allow users to enter information into input fields and click on the button on our website, which brings us to the third step of our guide.

Step 4: Adding the JavaScript Logic

Once the HTML elements have been added and you are satisfied with your NFT minting website’s structure, let’s look at the JavaScript logic. You can find it in the “logic.js” file. In particular, we will take a closer look at the following three essential functions :

  • login()
  • upload()
  • mintToken()


Let’s look closer at the “login()” function:

async function login(){

  document.getElementById(‘submit’).setAttribute(“disabled”, null);

  document.getElementById(‘username’).setAttribute(“disabled”, null);

  document.getElementById(‘useremail’).setAttribute(“disabled”, null);

  Moralis.Web3.authenticate().then(function (user) {









Once the function is triggered, the code will disable the “submit”, “username”, and “useremail” HTML elements. After that, the “Moralis.Web3.authenticate()” function will run, allowing users to authenticate themselves using MetaMask. It highlights some of the advantages of Moralis, since such functions are already ready to use. 

As soon as the user authenticates, the functions accept both the name and email, adding them to the database of your Moralis dapp. Finally, the function removes the “disabled” attribute from other website elements, allowing users to access fields and buttons to mint an NFT.  


The second function is “upload()”. It triggers when users click the “Upload and Mint” button in the dapp’s UI. This function is somewhat more complicated than the previous one. However, it is the entirety of the code: 

async function upload(){

  const fileInput = document.getElementById(“file”);

  const data = fileInput.files[0];

  const imageFile = new Moralis.File(, data);

  document.getElementById(‘upload’).setAttribute(“disabled”, null);

  document.getElementById(‘file’).setAttribute(“disabled”, null);

  document.getElementById(‘name’).setAttribute(“disabled”, null);

  document.getElementById(‘description’).setAttribute(“disabled”, null);

  await imageFile.saveIPFS();

  const imageURI = imageFile.ipfs();

  const metadata = {





  const metadataFile = new Moralis.File(“metadata.json”, {base64 : btoa(JSON.stringify(metadata))});

  await metadataFile.saveIPFS();

  const metadataURI = metadataFile.ipfs();

  const txt = await mintToken(metadataURI).then(notify)


The main part of the function includes the user’s file and adds it to an array. The data is then used to create a new Moralis file object needed to execute other parts of the function. After the Moralis object is created, users will no longer need to interact with fields and buttons, so they are disabled. 

With a Moralis object at hand, thanks to Moralis’ integration with IPFS (InterPlanetary File System), it is possible to save the file in a decentralized manner through the following line: 

await imageFile.saveIPFS();

When the file is uploaded to IPFS, Moralis provides the hash of the object and URI. Once you have access to the URI, we can create a metadata file containing the name, description, and URI referring to the user’s uploaded file. With the metadata file, we create a Moralis object again and store it in IPFS, but this time save it as a JSON file. This way, we can get the metadata URI and use it in the following function. 


The third function concerns the actual minting process of the NFT. Here is a complete function: 

async function mintToken(_uri){

  const encodedFunction = web3.eth.abi.encodeFunctionCall({

    name: “mintToken”,

    type: “function”,

    inputs: [{

      type: ‘string’,

      name: ‘tokenURI’


  }, [_uri]);

  const transactionParameters = {

    to: nft_contract_address,

    from: ethereum.selectedAddress,

    data: encodedFunction


  const txt = await ethereum.request({

    method: ‘eth_sendTransaction’,

    params: [transactionParameters]


  return txt

This function initially creates a new object which contains an encoded function call which is necessary because we are performing a transaction with a smart contract. When the encoding function is completed, it is added as a parameter to the “transactionParameters” object and the smart contract address. 

The last part sends the transaction to the blockchain, which returns a transaction hash. This ID confirms that the token has been minted and that the user has it. 

Step 5: Finding a Smart Contract

An essential part of the application, which we have not considered, is a smart contract. It is needed when creating an NFT minting website as this allows us to mint NFTs.

To implement the smart contract into your code, you only need to do is type the following into your JavaScript file:

const nft_contract_address = “”

What is the Cost of Making a Website for Minting NFTs?

The cost of minting a platform is the most discussed topic, especially among aspiring entrepreneurs. Remember that when it comes to building a minting website, two main factors determine your platform’s cost. These include :

  • Building a website from scratch

Building a minting website from scratch requires a lot of planning and research work. Developers must work on different aspects, from the project to the theme. They work on impeccable functionality and data security aspects. The process can take 7-8 months, depending on the required features. To save time and cut costs, Suffescom Solution creates an MVP that provides you with a layout of your project. You will receive a preview and ask to make changes.  

  • White-label NFT minting solution

White-label NFT minting solution is cost-effective, 100% customized, and ready for high functionality. You can integrate these solutions with blockchain technology and multiple crypto wallet options. Since it’s ready-made and ready to begin, it will cost less than building from scratch solution. 

Building NFT Minting Website Based on Collectibles

NFT marketplaces based on collectibles are designed by considering the type of collectibles. If you plan to create a site for gaming purposes, the design will differ from the universal collectible platform. The best examples are Axie Infinity and OpenSea, with many options in collectibles, such as : 

  • Art
  • Music
  • Video Game Items
  • Real Estate
  • Fashion
  • Photography
  • Domains
  • Ebook
  • Infrastructure

Create Blockchain Technology Based NFT Marketplace

It is tough to imagine the NFT minting market without Blockchain Technology. It provides security, transparency, authenticity, as well as accessibility. When choosing blockchain technology, there are many options available in the market. They offer extended support to the NFTs. 

  • PolkaDot
  • Solana
  • Binance Smart Chain
  • Polygon
  • Huobi ECO Chain
  • Hedera Hashgraph
  • Meter
  • Raydium
  • Chainlink
  • Tron

Applications of NFTs

Below are some potential applications of NFTs that could be used on your minting platform :

  • Collectibles

NFTs are especially popular with collectors, as they can be used to represent unique physical or digital items. It could be assets like rare stamps, vintage cars, or digital content such as videos or songs. 

  • Gaming Assets

NFTs represent in-game items and artifacts, including armor and weapons, to unique skins or game worlds. Now it is possible to buy virtual land in the game, which allows people to become more involved and invest in it mentally and physically. 

There is a term in the gaming world called “play-to-earn.” These NFT games (like AavegotchiIlluvium, Shiryo Inu, Age of Gods, etc.) are generally free to download. Still, it is impossible to play them without NFTs, which must be purchased separately. The play-to-earn model follows the concept of GameFi, where game assets are exchanged for financial rewards, in this case, cryptocurrency. The more cryptocurrencies you earn, the more NFTs you can purchase to trade and sell in the game. 

  • Digital Ownership

NFTs can also represent digital assets and content like website domains, social media accounts, or cryptocurrency wallets. The original owner of a digital asset can continue to earn profits from their asset if they choose to add royalties. This is where digital ownership comes in. The original artist never loses connection with the asset, even when they sold it to someone else.

Applications of NFTs


What is the Cost of Minting an NFT?

The cost varies depending on the blockchain platform used and the complexity of the token. Generally, the cost of minting an NFT can fall between $1 to $1,000. 

Do I Need a Website for My NFT?

No, you don’t need a website for your NFT. But with a website, you can promote your NFTs, provide information about them, or allow people to purchase and sell them.


Thus, NFTs have made their mark over the past year. The market has proven very lucrative, and developers constantly find new, innovative ways to use these digital assets. That’s why now is just the right time to get into NFT development. Even though it will be challenging in the beginning, with our general overview, you can create a successful NFT Minting Website that will satisfy the needs of your users and help your NFT business grow to great heights.
