SignatureMint ERC721

The SignatureMintERC721 smart contract extension is meant to be used with any ERC721 NFT smart contract.

The 'signature minting' mechanism in the SignatureMintERC721 extension uses EIP 712, and is a way for a contract admin to authorize an external party's request to mint tokens on the admin's contract.

At a high level, this means you can authorize some external party to mint tokens on your contract, and specify what exactly will be minted by that external party.


import "@thirdweb-dev/contracts/extension/SignatureMintERC721.sol";

Available functionality

mintWithSignatureMints tokens according to a given mint request, signed off i.e. approved by an authorized wallet.
_canSignMintRequestDefines the criteria a wallet must meet to be able to sign off on mint requests.

Implementing the Contract extension.

Import the contract extension and make your contract inherit it.

Unlocked Features

From the SDK you'll now be able to generate mint signatures and mint tokens with them.
