thirdweb’s Launchpad minting solution is a set of tools that allow creators and developers to launch a wide assortment of NFT content and distribution strategies in a configurable, secure and scalable way.

Launchpad allows users to setup their NFT content and distribution strategy using a web3 API where users own and control their smart contracts. In addition, thirdweb is a web3 architecture that doesn’t require a custodian that sits between the user and their digital assets.

What You Can Build

The thirdweb Launchpad can be used to to build different NFT strategies including:

  • 1-of-1 collections
  • Membership NFTs
  • POAP’s and Soulbound tokens
  • Open Editions
  • Lootboxes for communities and games
  • Airdrops
  • Free mints
  • Creating bundles of NFTs that can be sold together


The key features of Launchpad are:
