Sad as Duck: Presale Tutorial

Our presale mint is now over! You can learn how to buy during our public mint here:

We're going to walk you through minting Sad As Duck NFTs using Crossmint, a platform that lets anyone mint NFTs using an email address & credit card.

Key Terms

  • Mint: Buying an NFT directly from the collection; creating the NFT on the blockchain.
  • Presale Mint: An opportunity to buy NFTs at a cheaper price before they are publicly available.
  • Wallet: An address that own NFTs; where NFTs are stored.

Register for Presale

You have until July 22nd at 3pm EST to register for the presale access list here:

Once you've successfully registered, Crossmint will create a new wallet associated with your email address. Before the presale goes live, we will update our smart contract with the new wallet addresses on the access list.

Make sure you're on the official website:

The Sad as Duck presale will go live on July 22nd at 4pm EST.

Once the presale is live, you will be allowed to mint up to 3 NFTs at a discounted price of 0.03 ETH each.

Enter Your Email

To make sure you're allowed to mint during the presale, you'll want to enter same the email address you used for the access list registration.

Crossmint will send you an email with a link to sign in & finish minting. 

Enter Payment Information

Once you've clicked the link that has been emailed to you, you'll be redirected to the checkout page.

We've partnered with Crossmint so that you don't need to set up a wallet or buy crypto to mint our NFTs!

Just enter your payment information on this page, and Crossmint will handle minting your NFTs for you.

You'll notice there will also be some Ethereum network fees. These fees are required to make transactions on the blockchain, and are used to compensate the Etheruem blockchain validators. 

We've optimized our smart contract to limit the amount of fees you'll have to pay. Our ERC721A contract makes it cheaper to mint multiple NFTs at the same time.

Wait for Confirmation

Once you've submitted your payment, Crossmint will mint the NFTs on your behalf. This can take a few seconds for the blockchain to be successfully updated.


If you're minting during the presale, your initial NFT image will be a hatching egg. This is called the pre-reveal phase, and it helps prevents hackers from finding the rarest NFTs ahead of time.

The artwork of your NFT will be automatically revealed on Monday, July 25th at 8am EST.

Your new NFTs are stored in your Crossmint custodial wallet. You can transfer the NFTs from your Crossmint wallet to another wallet (i.e. MetaMask) for free.

Next up, we'll create quick walkthrough for transferring your NFTs from Crossmint to MetaMask, which will open up a lot of cool opportunities!

The presale mint will run for 24 hours, and then the public sale will start. You can mint up to 5 NFTs for 0.05 ETH each during the public sale.
