FAQ

General

What are NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens)?

NFT is the acronym for 'non-fungible token'. A non-fungible token is a unique asset in digital form. Every NFT is a 'one-of-a-kind' item that is recorded on the blockchain (an immutable ledger that can record more than just virtual coins). NFTs are transferred from one owner to another on the blockchain, creating a digital trail from seller to buyer that verifies the transaction. NFTs with their blockchain technology replace the need for certificates of ownership.

What is Candy Chain?

Candy Chain is creating a one stop shop for the booming NFT economy, allowing all believers in crypto to create their own smart contracts without coding knowledge. By bridging the gap between developers and creators we are providing a safer, more accessible and less expensive environment for those in the industries emerging around the blockchain.

How is Candy Chain different from marketplaces?

Candy Chain allows you to mint as many unique NFTs as you'd like! With Candy Chain, you can customize and manage your smart contracts and NFTs used for your various blockchain projects. When you create and deploy an NFT with Candy Chain your NFT is automatically viewable on leading marketplaces like OpenSea.

How can I sell my NFT on OpenSea?

Be sure to link OpenSea with the same MetaMask wallet account you used to create and deploy your NFTs on Candy Chain, and your NFT will automatically be live on OpenSea.

How much does it cost to use Candy Chain?

It is absolutely free to use with no paid subscription necessary. We just take 5% of your initial mint earnings once you deploy to the main nets. You are never paying out money on the playground mode, just be careful of the gas fees charged through deployment to the main nets with certain blockchains. We do not charge additional fees and don't make money on gas fees charged to you.

How is Candy Chain different from other launchpads?

Other launchpads not only struggle to remove the code and complexity out of NFT deployment, but they also charge a premium. We are trying to make it possible for all creators to grow communities and launch NFT projects, so we ask for no money upfront and provide access to the test networks on playground mode. Other launchpads have far more limited features and capabilities and charge at least 5% with an additional large sum of money upfront. We don't see financial benefit unless you do. We want the best projects to come out of Candy Chain.

What percentage of primary sales does Candy Chain take?

Candy Chain only takes 5% of your initial mint earnings. You pay no money upfront to create NFTs, and we don't take any money on secondary sales.

What are gas fees, and will I have to pay gas to mint NFTs on Candy Chain?
