3 min readSep 14, 2023

In today’s NFT ecosystem, the demand for efficient bulk minting has never been more critical, especially for NFT artists, businesses leveraging NFTs, NFT ticketing agencies, and various other stakeholders. AERIE, a comprehensive digital asset management platform, makes bulk minting a breeze. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the simple steps to bulk mint your NFTs on AERIE, demonstrating how it can streamline your NFT journey.

Step 1: Navigate to Bulk NFT Minting

First things first, ensure you’re logged in to your AERIE account. On the left panel, you’ll find a range of options. Choose “NFT.” A dropdown menu will appear; here, select “Bulk NFT.”

Step 2: Enter Essential Information

Now, let’s get started. Begin by entering the collection name, which will help you organize your NFTs. Next, select the blockchain network you want to mint your NFTs on. AERIE offers support for various chains, allowing you to choose the one that suits your needs.

You’ll also need to specify the type of contract you want to use, whether it’s ERC-721 or ERC-1155. AERIE offers flexibility here, enabling you to choose between a basic smart contract or deploy a customized one.

If your NFTs are intended for a particular client, you can select the client at this stage, but it’s entirely optional. Once you’ve entered this information, click “Save and Continue.”

Step 3: Bulk Upload of NFT Content

In the NFT content section, you can bulk upload images, videos, audio, or 3D models. Follow the prompts provided to ensure your files are correctly added.

Add a title and description. Don’t worry too much about having only one title and description at this point — you’ll have the opportunity to edit the title and description for each NFT on the next page.

You can also add a personalized endpoint. This is the tail end of the URL where your NFTs will be accessible. If you want to include attributes, such as specific traits or properties of your NFTs, you can do so here. Attributes not only enhance your NFTs’ appeal but also make them more discoverable.

Toggle the button if your NFT contains unlockable content, a feature that allows owners to reveal hidden aspects of their NFT. Finally, if you wish to safeguard your original files in an encrypted manner, toggle the corresponding button. This ensures that only you can download the original files. Click “Save and Continue” when you’re ready.

Step 4: Preview and Finalize

In the NFT preview section, you have the opportunity to review and edit the title, description, individual encryption settings, and unlockable content for each NFT individually. This level of detail ensures that every aspect of your NFTs meets your standards.

On the right side, you’ll find a summary view that allows you to double-check all the details you’ve entered. Here, you’ll also see the processing fee associated with your bulk minting.

At this point, you have several options. You can choose to “Save and Exit” if you want to mint your NFTs at a later time. Clicking “Back” will take you to the previous page if you need to make adjustments. When you’re ready to proceed, simply click “Create NFT.”

A pop-up window will appear, prompting you to select your wallet. Choose your preferred wallet, then click “Choose this wallet.” If your wallet is currently low on funds, don’t worry; you can click “Buy Volary” within this window to quickly replenish your wallet balance.

Once you’ve completed these steps, a popup will appear, confirming that your NFTs have been successfully minted.

To view your freshly minted NFTs, head over to the “View NFTs” section under the NFTs category on the left panel.

Congratulations! You’ve successfully bulk minted your NFTs on AERIE. This efficient process is a testament to the platform’s commitment to providing creators with the tools they need to navigate the NFT world with ease. Whether you’re starting small or going big, AERIE’s bulk minting capabilities will save you time, effort, and resources, allowing you to focus on what matters most: your creative vision.
