ERC721 Signature Mint

import "@thirdweb-dev/contracts/base/ERC721SignatureMint.sol";

The ERC721SignatureMint smart contract uses the ERC721Base base contract along with the SignatureMintERC721 contract extension.

Signature minting uses the EIP-712 standard, enables a contract admin to authorize an external party's request to mint tokens on the admin's contract. At a high level, this means you can authorize another wallet to mint tokens on your contract, and specify what exactly will be minted by that external party.

Functions to Override

The following functions have been implemented on this contract & are available to be overridden to add custom logic:

* @notice Mints tokens according to the provided mint request.
* @param _req The payload / mint request.
* @param _signature The signature produced by an account signing the mint request.
function mintWithSignature(MintRequest calldata _req, bytes calldata _signature)
returns (address signer)
require(_req.quantity == 1, "quantity must be 1");

uint256 tokenIdToMint = nextTokenIdToMint();

// Verify and process payload.
signer = _processRequest(_req, _signature);

address receiver =;

// Collect price
_collectPriceOnClaim(_req.primarySaleRecipient, _req.quantity, _req.currency, _req.pricePerToken);

// Set royalties, if applicable.
if (_req.royaltyRecipient != address(0) && _req.royaltyBps != 0) {
_setupRoyaltyInfoForToken(tokenIdToMint, _req.royaltyRecipient, _req.royaltyBps);

// Mint tokens.
