You may wish to reserve a number of tokens from your collection for future competition winners, rewarding project members or any scenario where having tokens set aside would be useful.
Within HyperMint, this is achieved by minting to tokens to your account and then later transferring them to the desired address. Reserving tokens can occur immediately after deployment and does not need any sales windows to be open.
Once a collection has been deployed, click Mint in the top right corner.
Mint to Accounttoggle is selected and enter the number of tokens to reserve.
Once the tokens have been minted, they will show as Owned in the list of tokens.
To transfer the token, click on the token name and the Transfer in the bottom right. Enter the address and the token will be transferred to the address.
The process for reserving tokens is as above with the following alterations:
- When minting the tokens, a number can be entered for each token type
- When viewing the tokens list, the number of owned tokens will be shown instead of a tick
- When transferring tokens, an amount is required
The status of transfers is shown at the bottom of the Tokens tab in the Transfers table. Note: This table will only show transfers from your account and not all transfers on the network.
