Minting Individual NFTs

To create an NFT, you must first create a collection, as all NFTs must belong to a collection. Alternatively, if you have an NFT collection already minted outside of Altura, you can import that collection into Altura.

When creating an NFT, you will be prompted to provide an image, name, description, and other information about the NFT. You can also add properties to the NFT, specify if it's stackable or non-stackable, set a maximum and minted supply, and more.


Altura NFTs allow you to store and update any information you want to retain about an item in its properties. This could include health, wear, evolution, etc. Properties are divided into two types: static and non-static. Static properties are properties of an NFT that cannot be modified after minting. An example of a static property can be an NFT's rarity. Non-static properties, on the other hand, can be modified after minting; more on this in the Smart NFTs section. An example of a non-static property can be an NFT's health.


You may also provide several images when minting an item representing the item's varying states (for example, different wear states of a sword); you can then change the primary image to any of the pre-loaded images.

Stackable and Non-stackable NFTs

Unlike ERC721 NFTs, ERC1155 NFTs can have a supply greater than one and can be held by several people simultaneously. When minting an NFT, you can specify if it's stackable or non-stackable. Stackable NFTs will appear as a single item in a user's wallet even if the user owns multiple of that item, while non-stackable NFTs will appear as unique items in the user's wallet.

Max Supply and Minted Supply

An item can have a maximum supply greater than its circulating supply. This means that the creator of an NFT can continue to mint more supply until the minted supply is equal to the maximum supply. This allows flexibility in creating a limited supply of NFTs for your game.
