Introduction to Non-Fungible Token ("NFT")
With the booming of NFT, VeChain has rolled out the NFT service on VeChain ToolChain™ where users can mint NFT to their products.
The NFT service supports the minting of NFT against the VIDs submitted through VeChain ToolChain™. Users can deliver NFT to customers along with physical items, demonstrating the scarcity and elegance of physical goods. Meanwhile, NFT can also be bound with marketing rights and interests to stimulate consumers to repurchase, and to strengthen consumers' stickiness and activity.
"How to" instructions
For a project with NFT service enabled, you can see the NFT service in the menu to the left within a project.
In here, it shows the existing SKUs and the number of VID available to be minted. VID can be divided into minted and unminted. Each VID can be minted to an NFT only once.
Click [Details] on page [NFT Service] to view data of "BindSKU" under a certain SKU. The VID under the BindSKU is divided into minted and unminted.
Click [Mint] on [NFT Service], and you will see the NFT minting page:
Smart Contract is the VIP181 contract address to mint NFT
Series is how you group NFTs. Once named and used, series cannot be edited while the named but unused ones can be deleted.
SKU is a dropdown list of all submitted SKUs in the project.
BindSKU is a dropdown list of all submitted BindSKUs under the SKU selected.
NFT Name: the SKU name is filled in by default. You can rename the default text to a max. bytes of 50.
Description: the SKU description is filled in by default. You can rewrite the description to a max. bytes of 500.
Image: the SKU image is filled in by default. You can replace it with another picture file in JPEG/JPEG/PNG. Max 10M. The recommended picture length width ratio is 1:1.
Select ID: the unminted VID is filled in by default. VID can be minted only once, so the minted VID will not be available here. Your selection of VIDs will lead to the corresponding number of NFTs. It should be noted that token ID of the minted NFTs is a growing number under the contract. If you want the token ID of NFTs to be in the same order as the VID, please select no more than 40 in each submission.

Minted NFTs can be displayed on landing page.
Minted NFTs can be burned.
It should be noted that burning NFTs is irreversible. Since NFTs are minted based on ID, the ID cannot be minted again once the NFT with it is burned.
