20 top items to sell as NFTs (ERC-721 tokens) on OpenSea

What can you create using Mintable?

Mintable allows you to create your very own ERC-721 standard smart contract and mint non fungible tokens for that contract. - nerd talk

Mintable lets you create a digital item that you can sell for cryptocurrencies on NFT marketplaces. So you can take a picture, some characteristics, give it a name, make it rare, and sell away for a profit. With each smart contract you can create multiple tokens and these tokens can be used to represent your digital items.

Here is an example: You are a graphic designer and you can make really cute or scary monsters. You make 50 of these unique cute things, and create a smart contract using Mintable called “My Scary Monsters - Limited Edition 2019”.

Then each token, is actually a picture of each one of your monsters. You can sell each token for whatever price you’d like, and if someone wants it - they can buy it!

If you promise to only make X amount - or have a social media following - users will find value in your creations. These types of tokens are best for people who have social media followings like Youtube creators, Twitch Streamers, or Twitter personalities.

How to sell NFTs for crypto using Mintable

Mintable is unique because it allows you to create and own the smart contract. You decide what the contract is for and you choose what the tokens represent and how many there are. Below are 20 examples of what you can do.

Note: If you are an existing retail business you can sell your items via NFTs — verify ownership of the token via customer support and then you can send them the physical item. Information on how to perform all this should be included in the NFT you make for consumers to buy.

So How Can You Use These Tokens In The Real World?

There are a number of ways you can use your tokens, some of these include:
