Mint the Moment with Phantom

    When we first built our crypto wallet, we wanted to make it friendly for NFTs. And we did. Millions of people (like you) use Phantom every day to browse, mint, buy, sell, collect, trade, and store NFTs. But what about create them?

    Now, you can.

    Mint NFTs in Phantom

    With Camera Mint on Phantom Mobile, you can turn photos and videos into Solana NFTs, stored on the blockchain forever.

    Simple and easy to use

    Take a picture, record a video, or upload an existing moment from your camera roll. From there, just give your NFT a name and description, and then you can mint your very own Solana collectible with the tap of a button. And thanks to Solana, you can mint NFTs in seconds and for less than a dollar.

    Frictionless minting, from wherever you are

    No need to be at your desktop computer or use a third-party service — minting a NFT is now possible on-the-go from right inside Phantom’s mobile app. Plus, all of your NFTs are displayed in the Collectibles tab, so you can easily access and remember those special moments from wherever you are.

    Turn moments into collectibles

    Your baby’s first steps, best friend’s wedding, grandma’s 80th birthday — all of these moments can now be saved and memorialized on the blockchain, forever. Sort of like POAPs, but a bit more personal.

    Go from collector to creator

    Photos. Videos. Art. Paintings. Memes. Now it’s easy to create, own, and monetize your work.

    Do more with your NFTs

    Mint a selfie and set it as your account avatar. Share moments and memes as NFTs with your frens. Store your NFTs in your Collectibles tab for your own digital photo album. The possibilities are endless.

    How it works

    Step 1: Open the Phantom app on mobile and go to the Collectibles tab.

    Step 2: Click the + icon located in the top right of the Collectibles tab and select Mint Collectible.

    Step 3: Use our in-app camera to snap a picture or record a video. Or upload one from your camera roll. Note: For now, videos are capped at 15 seconds.

    Step 4: Give your collectible a name and description, then press Mint.

    That’s it. Your photo or video will show up in your Collectibles tab.
