  • Storage Type Selection
  • Minting Application Creation
  • Minting an NFT
  • Pinning your NFT
  • Deploying to Testnet
  • Minting Application's Smart Contract
  • Contract Deployment
  • Storing NFT Data on IPFs
  • NFT Data Retrieving

Minting Application Creation

The first and foremost step in The IPFS NFT Development is the Minting Application creation. The Minting Application accounts for the implementation of IPFS strategies and workflow over the NFT Domains. 

Install Minting Application

On Successful creation of the Minting application, the application is code-driven to accept recurrent commands to carry out Minting of the Non-Fungible Tokens. The Minting application process the following steps,

1. Clone the Minting application's repository

2. NPM Installation

3.Path Inclusion

4. Run the Program

5.Deploy The Contract

Minting an NFT

The Minting attribute of the Tokens promotes the further development of Tokens to be out for general and enhanced use cases. The NFT Minting process is carried out in a set of sequential steps that include,

Identity Inclusion

  • File Creation
  • Data Inclusion
  • Save and conclude
  • Call The Mint command
  • NFT Pinning

NFT Pinning

Pinning refers to the fetching of objects within the local server. There will be no requirement for an external entity or remote servers to process the transactions. The pins are distinguished based on their modes of availability. 

NFT Pinning Modes

The Direct Pins process pinning a single block and no other blocks in relation to it, The Recursive pins process pinning to all its associated blocks, while the Indirect pins only process the parent blocks again and again. 

IPFS NFT Pinning modes in trends

There are two Pinning modes to Pin IPFS with that of NFTs in current trends.

Testnet Deployment

On Successful completion of the Token Contract creation, the Token contracts are deployed into the Testnet to pre-test the IPFS based NFT Platform’s performance breakthrough. Only on recurrent deployment into the test net, the platform will be made available to the ready use of the platform.

Smart Contract Setting Up

On undergoing numerous and structured test net and hit analyses the Smart Contracts are configured and cleared out the bugs and made complexity free.

Contract Deployment

The Configured Smart Contract is made available for Deployment into the main net to deliver certain definite functionalities to the Platform seekers. 

Store NFT Data on IPFS

The Platform on developing Contracts for NFT and corresponding pinning mechanism to the IPFS will start to store data like the Blockchain Ledger.

NFT Data Retrieving

NFT Data Retrieving process denotes the process of fetching NFT related Data access and processing to progress necessary functionalities such as Token minting and burning.
