Batch Mint NFTokens

You can create an application that mints multiple NFTokens at one time. You can use a for loop to send one transaction after another.

A best practice is to use Tickets to reserve the transaction sequence numbers. If you create an application that creates NFTokens without using tickets, if any transaction fails for any reason, the application stops with an error. If you use tickets, the application continues to send transactions, and you can look into the reason for the failure afterward.

Usage

You can download the Quickstart Samples archive to try the sample in your own browser.

Get an Account

  1. Open 7.batch-minting.html in a browser.
  2. Get a test account.
    1. If you want to use an existing account seed:
      1. Paste the account seed in the Seed field.
      2. Click Get Account from Seed.
    2. If you do not want to use an existing account seed, click Get New Standby Account.

Note: Running this command throws an error in the JavaScript console because the getAccountsFromSeeds function in ripplex1-send-xrp.js looks for the operational seed field, which is not included in this form. You can ignore the error (or fix it in your own implementation).

Batch Mint NFTokens

This example lets you mint multiple NFTokens for a single unique item. The NFToken might represent "prints" of an original artwork, tickets to an event, or another limited set of unique items.

To batch mint a non-fungible token objects:

  1. Set the Flags field. For testing purposes, we recommend setting the value to 8. This sets the tsTransferable flag, meaning that the NFToken object can be transferred to another account. Otherwise, the NFToken object can only be transferred back to the issuing account. See NFTokenMint for information about all of the available flags for minting NFTokens.
  2. Enter the Token URL. This is a URI that points to the data or metadata associated with the NFToken object. You can use the sample URI provided if you do not have one of your own.
  3. Enter a Token Count of up to 200 NFTokens to create in one batch.
  4. Enter the Transfer Fee, a percentage of the proceeds from future sales of the NFToken that will be returned to the original creator. This is a value of 0-50000 inclusive, allowing transfer rates between 0.000% and 50.000% in increments of 0.001%. If you do not set the Flags field to allow the NFToken to be transferrable, set this field to 0.
  5. Click Batch Mint.

Get Batch NFTokens

Click Get Batch NFTokens to get the current list of NFTokens for your account.

The difference between this function and the getTokens() function used earlier is that it allows for larger lists of tokens, and sends multiple requests if the tokens exceed the number of objects allowed in a single request.

Code Walkthrough

Get Account From Seed

This is a stripped-down version of getAccountsFromSeeds() that only gets the Standby account information.

async function getAccountFromSeed() {

Connect to the XRP Ledger.

    let net = getNet()
    const client = new xrpl.Client(net)
    results = 'Connecting to ' + getNet() + '....'
    document.getElementById('standbyResultField').value = results
    await client.connect()
    results += '\nConnected, finding wallets.\n'
    document.getElementById('standbyResultField').value = results

Use the account seed to get information about the wallet.

  var theSeed = document.getElementById('seeds').value
    const standby_wallet = xrpl.Wallet.fromSeed(theSeed)

Get the current XRP balance.

  const standby_balance = (await client.getXrpBalance(standby_wallet.address))  

Populate the fields for Standby account.

    document.getElementById('standbyAccountField').value = standby_wallet.address
    document.getElementById('standbyPubKeyField').value = standby_wallet.publicKey
    document.getElementById('standbyPrivKeyField').value = standby_wallet.privateKey
    document.getElementById('standbySeedField').value = standby_wallet.seed
    document.getElementById('standbyBalanceField').value = 
        (await client.getXrpBalance(standby_wallet.address))

Disconnect from the XRP Ledger.

 client.disconnect()    
} 

Get Batch NFTokens

This version of getTokens() allows for a larger set of NFTokens by watching for a marker at the end of each batch of NFTokens.

async function getBatchNFTokens() {

Connect to the XRPLedger and get the account wallet.

  const standby_wallet = xrpl.Wallet.fromSeed(standbySeedField.value)
  let net = getNet()
  const client = new xrpl.Client(net)
  results = 'Connecting to ' + net + '...'
  document.getElementById('standbyResultField').value = results
  await client.connect()
  results += '\nConnected. Getting NFTokens...'
  document.getElementById('standbyResultField').value = results

Request the account_nfts. Set the limit to 400, the maximum amount, to retrieve up to 400 records in one batch.

  results += "\n\nNFTs:\n"
  let nfts = await client.request({
    method: "account_nfts",
    account: standby_wallet.classicAddress,
    limit: 400
  })
  results += JSON.stringify(nfts,null,2)

If the list of NFTokens exceeds your limit, the result includes a marker field that you can use as a parameter for the next account_nfts request. The marker indicates where the next batch of records starts. While the marker field is present, continue to request another batch of NFToken records.

  while (nfts.result.marker)
  {
    nfts = await client.request({
      method: "account_nfts",
      account: standby_wallet.classicAddress,
      limit: 400,
      marker: nfts.result.marker
  })
    results += '\n' + JSON.stringify(nfts,null,2)
  }

Report the final results.

  document.getElementById('standbyResultField').value = results

Disconnect from the XRP Ledger.

  client.disconnect()
} //End of getBatchTokens()

Batch Mint

This script mints multiple copies of the same NFToken.

async function batchMint() {

Connect to the XRP Ledger and get the account wallet.

  let net = getNet()
  const client = new xrpl.Client(net)
  results = 'Connecting to ' + getNet() + '....'
  document.getElementById('standbyResultField').value = results
  await client.connect() 
  results += '\nConnected, finding wallet.'
  document.getElementById('standbyResultField').value = results
  standby_wallet = xrpl.Wallet.fromSeed(standbySeedField.value)
  document.getElementById('standbyResultField').value = results

Get the account information, particularly the Sequence number.

  const account_info = await client.request({
    "command": "account_info",
    "account": standby_wallet.address
  })

  my_sequence = account_info.result.account_data.Sequence
  results += "\n\nSequence Number: " + my_sequence + "\n\n"
  document.getElementById('standbyResultField').value = results

Next, create ticket numbers for the batch. Without tickets, if one transaction fails, all others in the batch fail. With tickets, there can be failures, but the rest will continue, and you can investigate any problems afterward.

Parse the NFToken Count field value to an integer.

  const nftokenCount = parseInt(standbyNFTokenCountField.value)

Create the TicketCreate transaction hash, automatically filling default values. Provide the Sequence number to indicate a starting point for the XRP Ledger.

  const ticketTransaction = await client.autofill({
    "TransactionType": "TicketCreate",
    "Account": standby_wallet.address,
    "TicketCount": nftokenCount,
    "Sequence": my_sequence
  })

Sign and submit the transaction.

   const signedTransaction = standby_wallet.sign(ticketTransaction)
   const tx = await client.submitAndWait(signedTransaction.tx_blob)

Send the request and wait for the result.

  let response = await client.request({
    "command": "account_objects",
    "account": standby_wallet.address,
    "type": "ticket"
  })

Populate the tickets array variable.

  let tickets = []

  for (let i=0; i < nftokenCount; i++) {
    tickets[i] = response.result.account_objects[i].TicketSequence
  }

Report the function progress.

  results += "Tickets generated, minting NFTokens.\n\n"
  document.getElementById('standbyResultField').value = results

Use a for loop to create the NFTokens one at a time, up to the NFTokenCount you specified.

  for (let i=0; i < nftokenCount; i++) {
        const transactionBlob = {
            "TransactionType": "NFTokenMint",
            "Account": standby_wallet.classicAddress,
            "URI": xrpl.convertStringToHex(standbyTokenUrlField.value),
            "Flags": parseInt(standbyFlagsField.value),
            "TransferFee": parseInt(standbyTransferFeeField.value),
            "Sequence": 0,

Use the loop variable to step through the array. Set the LastLedgerSequence to null.

            "TicketSequence": tickets[i],
            "LastLedgerSequence": null,
            "NFTokenTaxon": 0 
        }

Submit the signed transaction hash.

        const tx =  client.submit(transactionBlob, { wallet: standby_wallet} )
  }

Use the same logic as getBatchNFTokens, above, to get the list of current NFTokens.

  results += "\n\nNFTs:\n"
  let nfts = await client.request({
    method: "account_nfts",
    account: standby_wallet.classicAddress,
    limit: 400
  })

  results += JSON.stringify(nfts,null,2)
  while (nfts.result.marker != null)
  {
        nfts = await client.request({
            method: "account_nfts",
            account: standby_wallet.classicAddress,
            limit: 400,
            marker: nfts.result.marker
        })
    results += '\n' + JSON.stringify(nfts,null,2)
  }

Report the results.

    results += '\n\nTransaction result: '+ tx.result.meta.TransactionResult
    results += '\n\nnftokens: ' + JSON.stringify(nfts, null, 2)
    document.getElementById('standbyBalanceField').value = 
        (await client.getXrpBalance(standby_wallet.address))
    document.getElementById('standbyResultField').value = results

Disconnect from the XRP Ledger.

  client.disconnect()
} // End of batchMint()
