How Much does it Cost to Make an NFT?
Creating your own NFT is exciting as well as profitable in the long run. On average, NFT costs can be as low as $0.01 but go into thousands of dollars.
For example, you can create NFTs on an Ethereum blockchain, the most expensive of all blockchains costing an average of $70. However, there are many examples where making your own NFT that can cost you more than $500 at its peak time.
In contrast, Solana is one of the cheapest blockchains where the cost of NFT is approximately $0.01 per token. However, these NFT costs do not include the fee you will pay to the marketplace. Therefore, when you ask how much do NFTs cost to make? Remember to add the marketplace fee of between 2.5% and 5%.
We advise our customers to ask the following questions before diving into the NFT-verse.Make an animation
How Much Does an NFT Cost on Each NFT Blockchain?
Due to their type, many blockchains offer a lower cost to create NFT compared to Ethereum. Currently, Ethereum operates on the proof of work blockchain. This blockchain offers extreme security but lacks efficiency. This is why the cost of NFT is higher on Ethereum, as you will have to pay a higher fee for the transaction.
Is It Free to Make NFT?
Yes, you can create NFT for free by using the Polygon blockchain. However, it is a lazy minting process. Furthermore, you can create free-of-charge NFTs until you sell your NFTs. If you are looking for an inexpensive but comparatively efficient method to create NFT, you can use blockchains such as Avalanche, Solana, Tezos, and WAX.
Ways to Create NFTs
You can create NFTs using various methods, which are:
This method allows NFT creation off the main blockchain. This will help our clients avoid upfront NFT minting costs. You will be able to create free NFTs but have to pay a minting fee upon selling this NFT. If you are thinking about experimenting with the NFT, lazy minting is the most viable option that you should explore.
Use the gasless minting method to create your NFTs without the actual need to submit your NFT on a blockchain. This rectifies the need for any transaction as you do not pay a cent to create your NFT. In gasless minting, you can access NFT space without any barriers to entry fees, also known as gas fees.
Layer 2 Scaling Solutions
You can save money when it comes to the cost to make NFTs by exploring the layer 2 scaling solutions. These solutions will allow you to scale applications such as Ethereum via processing the blockchain transactions off layer 1. However, you will continue to enjoy the same level of security offered by the blockchain.
Layer 2 solutions can increase your throughput and decreases your gas fee. This means you will pay less out of pocket when creating an NFT. Some examples of layer 2 solutions are Immutable X, Polkadot, and Polygon.
Starting NFT Art
For our clients who are artists or into art, we at Prolific Studio can help you create your personal digital artwork NFT collection. Creating NFTs in bulk can help save money.
Cost to create an entire NFT collection
Our client can now create an entire NFT collection. However, it is a labor-intensive process compared to creating a single NFT. An NFT collection refers to randomly-generated non-fungible tokens, and the collection size may range from 100 to over 100,000 NFTs.
The cost to create an NFT collection can go into thousands of dollars. This cost usually includes design, smart contract coding, and creating your website to sell the NFTs.
However, you must remember that individual NFTs are easier to sell compared to the entire collection. If you are a brand or business, then NFT collections is a better option that you can offer to your customer base.
On the other hand, if you are a startup, it is a good idea to consider trying individual NFTs before diving into the deep end.Make an animation
NFT Collection Creation: Our Process
The creation of the NFT collection at Prolific Studio entails four components.
Metadata in NFT is the content and description that reveals the details of the content stored on a given blockchain. Metadata is integral to your NFT and acts as your contract terms. The cost to integrate metadata into your NFT can range between $150 to $500.
Your smart contract will include the coding required to allow the minting of your NFT collection on the blockchain of your choice. This is a crucial component of NFT creation, and the average cost of a smart contract begins at $500.
In case you do not want to use an NFT marketplace to mint the NFT collection, you are going to need your personal minting website. This website will be your landing page that buyers will visit to purchase your NFT collection. The cost of a minting website may vary based on the features and functionalities you require on your website.
