Create a digital collectible

To create a digital collectible:

  1. In the Unfold home screen, tap +, then tap Create digital collectible.
  2. Choose an image or video you want to use to create your digital collectible, or choose to pull an image from your Instagram account. The first time you choose Instagram, you'll be prompted to connect your Instagram account.
  3. Enter a name, description (optional), and price. You enter your price in Ether, the Ethereum cryptocurrency. Unfold provides an approximate conversion to US dollars.
  4. Tap Next.
  5. Enter a royalty percentage of up to 20%, then click Next.
  6. Review the NFT, then tap Create.
  7. Tap Done to finish, or Share to share your digital collectible.
Note: Rarible waits to submit your digital collectibles for minting until someone purchases them.

After you create a digital collectible, it’s not possible to change its price. Instead, delete digital collectibles before they sell, then recreate them.

Royalties and fees

Royalties are fees you earn when an NFT you created is resold after its initial purchase. These are built in through smart contracts in the blockchain when you create digital collectibles in Unfold.

You pay a 1% royalty to Rarible when you sell your digital collectible. Rarible also collects an "Ethereum gas fee" from the buyer when they purchase a digital collectible. This covers the cost of minting the digital collectible by adding it to the blockchain. Rarible adds this fee at the time of purchase.

If you have Unfold Pro, you pay nothing to Unfold when you sell your digital collectible. If you have Unfold Plus or are using the free version of Unfold, you pay a 2.5% royalty when you sell a digital collectible.

If you have Unfold Pro, Unfold also collects a 2.5% royalty if your digital collectible is later resold outside of Rarible. If you have Unfold Plus or are using the free version of Unfold, Unfold collects a 2.5% royalty if your digital collectible is resold anywhere.

Creator royalties are payments you get if your digital collectible is later resold. If you have Unfold Pro, you can set a royalty for yourself of up to 20%. If you have Unfold Plus or are using the free version of Unfold, this royalty is set at 5%.

If you upgrade to Unfold Pro after creating digital collectibles, the royalty structure for your existing digital collectibles won’t change.

Accessing digital collectible proceeds
