Creating Move NFT


Creating and managing your own NFTs using the 0x1::simple_nft module involves several steps, including creating a collection, minting NFTs, checking minted NFTs, and transferring NFTs. This tutorial will guide you through these steps, focusing on syntax and essential commands to interact with the blockchain.


Step 1: Create Collection

To mint NFTs, you first need to create a collection. You'll use the 0x1::simple_nft::create_collection function for this purpose. This function requires numerous parameters, including descriptions, maximum supply, collection name, and various flags to allow mutability in your collection's properties.

public entry fun create_collection(
    creator: &signer,
    description: String,
    max_supply: Option<u64>,
    name: String,
    uri: String,
    mutable_description: bool,
    mutable_royalty: bool,
    mutable_uri: bool,
    mutable_nft_description: bool,
    mutable_nft_properties: bool,
    mutable_nft_uri: bool,
    royalty: Decimal128,
> initiad tx move execute 0x1 simple_nft create_collection \ 
  --args "string:description option<u64>:100 string:my_collection string: bool:true bool:true bool:true bool:true bool:true bool:true decimal128:0.05" \
  --from [key-name] \
  --gas auto --gas-adjustment 1.5 --gas-prices 0.15uinit \
  --node [rpc-url]:[rpc-port] --chain-id [chain-id]

Step 2: Mint NFT

After creating a collection, you can mint NFTs within this collection using the 0x1::simple_nft::mint function. This function also requires various parameters, including the collection name, a description of the NFT, the token ID, and an optional recipient address.

public entry fun mint(
    creator: &signer,
    collection: String,
    description: String,
    token_id: String,
    uri: String,
    property_keys: vector<String>,
    property_types: vector<String>,
    property_values: vector<vector<u8>>,
    to: Option<address>,
> initiad tx move execute 0x1 simple_nft mint \
  --args "string:my_collection string:nft_description string:nft_1 string: vector<string>: vector<string>: vector<vector<u8>>: option<address>:[receiver-addr]" \
  --from [key-name] \
  --gas auto --gas-adjustment 1.5 --gas-prices 0.15uinit \
  --node [rpc-url]:[rpc-port] --chain-id [chain-id]

Step 3: Check Minted NFTs

You can check the NFTs you've minted by accessing specific APIs. For checking collections and tokens owned by a specific address, use the following endpoints, replacing [addr] and [collection_address] with actual values:

  • Collections owned by a specific address:[addr]

  • NFTs owned by a specific address:[addr]

Step 4: Transfer NFT

To transfer an NFT, use the 0x1::object::transfer_call function. This function allows transferring a single NFT from one account to another.

public entry fun transfer_call(
    owner: &signer,
    object: address,
    to: address,
> initiad tx move execute 0x1 object transfer_call \                                                                   
  --args "address:[object-addr] address:[receiver-addr]" \                                                  
  --from [key-name] \
  --gas auto --gas-adjustment 1.5 --gas-prices 0.15uinit \
  --node [rpc-url]:[rpc-port] --chain-id [chain-id]
