Mint a token

Minting fungible token allows you to increase the total supply of the token. Minting a non-fungible token creates an NFT with its unique metadata for the class of NFTs defined by the token ID. The Supply Key must sign the transaction.
  • If no Supply Key is defined, the transaction will resolve to TOKEN_HAS_NO_SUPPLY_KEY. The maximum total supply a token can have is 2^63-1.
  • The amount provided must be in the lowest denomination possible.
    • Example: Token A has 2 decimals. In order to mint 100 tokens, one must provide an amount of 10000. In order to mint 100.55 tokens, one must provide an amount of 10055.
  • The metadata field is specific to NFTs. Once an NFT is minted, the metadata cannot be changed and is immutable.
    • You can use the metadata field to add a URI that contains additional information about the token. You can view the metadata schema here. The metadata field has a 100 character limit.
  • The serial number for the NFT is returned in the receipt of the transaction.
  • When minting NFTs, do not set the amount. The amount is used for minting fungible tokens only.
  • This transaction accepts zero unit minting operations for fungible tokens (HIP-564)
Transaction Signing Requirements
  • Supply key
  • Transaction fee payer account key
Transaction Fees
  • Please see the transaction and query fees table for base transaction fee
  • Please use the Hedera fee estimator to estimate your transaction fee cost
