When you drop your collection using OpenSea, your community can own, sell, and trade an item the moment it’s minted. OpenSea supports artists and creators by providing a platform for NFT drops to happen directly on OpenSea.
Each drop has a unique landing page where you can see the following information provided by the creator:
- Drop name
- Creator name
- Links to the creator’s social media
- The mint schedule
- A sample gallery of the NFTs that will be minted
- Roadmap, Team, and FAQ sections
Featured collection: CHRYSALISM: DNA
If you’d like to participate in a drop and mint an item to your wallet, you can follow the steps in our help guide.
If you’re a creator and you’d like to drop a collection on OpenSea, you can use OpenSea Studio to set up the details of your drop in advance and publish it when you’re ready. All steps of the drop process can be handled directly on OpenSea, from deploying a new smart contract to customizing your drop landing page and uploading metadata.
At this time, using OpenSea Studio to create a drop doesn’t guarantee that the drop will be added to OpenSea’s Featured Drops tab.
To create your own drop, you’ll first need to set up and customize your collection’s smart contract. If you’ve already completed this step, you can skip to Part 2: Prepare your drop schedule.
