Minting fees

It cost between $30 to $200 to mint an NFT on the Ethereum blockchain. For those new to NFTs, it is worth noting that Ethereum is the blockchain that NFTs were first created on.

The actual minting of an NFT involves an on-chain contact. This is by the blockchain network procedures. If you are a non-techy, you want to be on the lookout for platforms that cut out all the difficulties. We are talking of the ones relative to minting NFT tokens via on-chain connections.
