How do I create an NFT?

This how-to guide will walk you through creating your very own NFT on Proton Market.

Before starting

Let’s get started

  1. Go to and connect your wallet.
  2. Open Proton Wallet on your phone, scan the QR code, and authorize the interaction between your Proton Wallet account and the Proton Market.
  3. Ok, now we are ready for the fun part. Click “Create” at the top right of your screen and then click the “Create” button down below to start building your first collection.
    • You can also add to an existing collection by selecting it from the Collections list
  4. You’ll want to add a picture for the collection (like a profile picture), a display name for the collection, a collection name (this is usually your Proton @name), a description of the collection, and a royalties percentage.
    ℹ️ The cool thing about royalties is this is the percent you’ll be paid each time your NFT is re-sold by another buyer, so this has the potential to net you more income in the future.
  5. Add a template to this collection. Add a file, a file name, and a description. Next, add a number for how many editions you’ll issue; this is how many total copies will ever be in existence for this NFT. Next, hit “Continue.”
  6. Decide on how many you’ll mint at this time – the first 10 are free! You can always mint a few more, and more later; the amount you mint just has to be less than or equal to the number of editions you chose for this NFT. Hit “Create NFT” after you enter the amount.
  7. Authorize the transaction on your Proton Wallet account.
  8. Ready to sell it? Click “My items” at the top, choose the NFT.
  9. Click “Mark for sale” to set the price and authorize the transaction on your Proton Wallet.

You’re done! Now you can let the world know about your awesome creation!
