Minting means creating a new NFT by adding it to the blockchain. This gives the NFT a permanent digital record and proof of ownership.
When minting an NFT, descriptive details like the creator’s name and NFT content get stored on the blockchain. This data verifies the NFT's authenticity.
Both artists and collectors can mint new NFTs. For artists, minting lets them control ownership of their work. For collectors, minting lets them become the first owners.
Minting establishes who owns an NFT and its origin story. The blockchain permanently stores the NFT's ownership history starting with its minting.
So minting NFTs allows digital creations to be recorded as one-of-a-kind assets. It lets artists and collectors claim ownership in a verified way. The minting process gives NFTs their digital identity and proof of scarcity.
When you mint an NFT, it becomes stored on the blockchain, where its authenticity and ownership is established. And because the blockchain record can’t be edited, minting is the start of that NFT’s immutable history.
When an NFT is minted, smart contracts automatically set the creator as the first owner. They can then transfer ownership when the NFT is sold.
NFT marketplaces may use smart contracts to hold ownership temporarily during auctions until set conditions are met. Smart contracts can also add utilities to NFTs, like rewards in games or interactive features. Importantly, smart contracts are computer code, not legal documents. They automatically execute actions if conditions are met.
So in summary, smart contracts assign and transfer NFT ownership, enable extra utilities through code, and automate actions - expanding what NFTs can do.
