Deploy an NFT Collection


You can deploy smart contracts using The Fireblocks Hardhat plugin integration

Create your ERC-721 collection

You can create your own NFT collection using the common ERC-721 standard.

For this example, we’ll name our collection “Space Bunnies”.

There are some great tools to help you do this pretty easily. This example was pre-generated using the Contracts Wizard by OpenZeppelin.

pragma solidity ^0.8.4;

import "@openzeppelin/contracts/token/ERC721/ERC721.sol";
import "@openzeppelin/contracts/token/ERC721/extensions/ERC721URIStorage.sol";
import "@openzeppelin/contracts/access/Ownable.sol";
import "@openzeppelin/contracts/utils/Counters.sol";

contract SpaceBunnies is ERC721, ERC721URIStorage, Ownable {
    using Counters for Counters.Counter;

    Counters.Counter private _tokenIdCounter;

    constructor() ERC721("Space Bunnies", "SPCB") {}

    function safeMint(address to, string memory uri) public onlyOwner {
        uint256 tokenId = _tokenIdCounter.current();
        _safeMint(to, tokenId);
        _setTokenURI(tokenId, uri);

    // The following functions are overrides required by Solidity.

    function _burn(uint256 tokenId) internal override(ERC721, ERC721URIStorage) {

    function tokenURI(uint256 tokenId)
        override(ERC721, ERC721URIStorage)
        returns (string memory)
        return super.tokenURI(tokenId);


OpenZeppelin required

To run the generated code, you also need to install the OpenZeppelin contracts package from NPM.

In your project directory, run: npm install @openzeppelin/contracts.

You are ready to go!

Check out the Fireblocks Hardhat Plugin Documenation, Fireblocks Local JSON RPC and Fireblocks Web3 provider .

Make sure you go through these and deploy the above contract as explained there, using your choice of available options.


Hardhat Deployment

Hardhat is the go-to market solution for easily deploying contracts. We highly recommend that you choose this option if you feel comfortable with going through the configuration process.
