Hello everyone, I'm Stephen Asuncion, a 20 y/o developer. In this article, I am going to show you how I generated an NFT collection and make a mint website for it in under 10 minutes. Full Tutorial Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhBNDsOjluo
What is thirdweb?
Thirdweb is a platform where you can build web3 apps easily. They allow users to create their own NFTs, marketplaces, crypto currency and more.
What is nfthost?
Nfthost is a website where you can host your nft mint website and generate your nft collections. It is made by me and I would like to invite everyone to contribute because I made it open source. PS: I just started getting into fullstack web development sooo the code is a bit messy :)
Before you start, make sure you have your assets ready for your collection.
