Announcing Our v1 Launch
This week, we announced the official launch of Highlight v1.
So what does v1 do?
Token Gate Anything™: make a gate in minutes with any Ethereum or Polygon contract, any OpenSea collection URL, any balance of ETH, MATIC, or ERC20, allow-lists (wallet address), any specific trait or attribute in metadata.
Create an NFT Drop With Style: 100% creator-owned smart contracts, fixed or open edition, limit mints per wallet, gated mints & allowlists, protect your royalties
Generate Custom Landing Pages: polls, surveys, raffles, merch, mints, and rewards for your collectors
Embeds: Add any of the above to your website to fully customize the look & feel of your project. Highlight allows embeds for both NFT mints and gated landing pages onto third-party websites.
Commemorative Mint & Win a Ledger Stax
To celebrate our launch, we made something fun and mintable for you here.
Once you mint, go here to enter a token-gated contest to win a new Stax hardware wallet designed by Tony Fadell, courtesy of Ledger. Entry closes Sunday, Dec. 18, 2022, at 11:59 pm Pacific.
Support for Operator Filter Registry
Recently, there’s been a fierce debate about whether NFT marketplaces should enforce creator royalties. At Highlight, we believe this should be up to creators – not marketplaces – to choose.
To provide tools to help creators protect their on-chain royalties, we rolled out support for adding the Operator Filter Registry to your smart contracts using Highlight. Tokens using the Operator Filter Registry may not be sold on marketplaces that do not enforce royalties.
Learn more about the Registry here or see this week’s interview with our CEO, Nat Emodi, in Peter Yang’s Creator Economy.
To add support for the Registry to your NFT collection on Highlight:
From the Tools dashboard > Tokens, select 'Create a token’
Under Advanced, hit the toggle under Operator Filter Registry
