ðŸ”ŪGenerative Drops

What are these drops and how to participate? This page is for collectors coming to KodaDot and thinking about buying NFTs.

What is a Generative Drop?

In general, an NFT drop refers to the release or launch of a new set of NFTs. They involve a limited number of tokens. This scarcity is a key feature that can drive demand and value. KodaDot, in late 2023, was the first marketplace that implemented generative art in the Polkadot ecosystem. As a celebration of this achievement, we decided to reward our collectors and audience with amazing opportunities to collect limited generative art NFTs.

Types of Drops

Each drop is different, in collaboration with a different artist, and has different conditions. Some drops are paid, and some are free. Drop can be limited by various conditions like:

  • minimum amount of funds in a wallet

  • being an owner of previous NFT drops

  • limited mints per wallet

  • and of course, some drops are with no conditions too

These conditions will always be visible on the drop page.

How do I participate?

Go to KodaDot and check Drops in the top right corner.

You should be able to see active, planned, and ended drops there. You can see their status. Also, you are able to see the number of NFTs in the collection and their price.


Connect your wallet and enjoy the Drop! Recommended wallets can be found here. Don't forget every generative art drop has the option to play with variations. Click under the picture on Generate to get a new version of the NFT. Once you find the version you like, click on Mint and follow all necessary steps.

Mass mint

We also have a feature that allows you to mint more NFTs at once. Simply select the number you want to mint and click on mint. If you select a higher number - minting will take a bit longer, so be patient. You should see previews of the NFTs once it loads. You can then choose to mint them.

Some people report that they do not see the art instantly after the mint. This is caused by the "Kodadot Minter," which mints approximately ~40 tx/min. So the worst case is that the user misses the window and needs to wait 1 min + ~ 48 sec for finalization (then it is picked up by the indexer).

So don't panic and be patient - Metadata replication can take up to two minutes!

Any troubles?
