Deploy KRC721 tokens


  • Connect your MetaMask wallet to KardiaChain mainnet or testnet. Detail instruction can be found here.

  • Have some KAI in your wallet to use as transaction fee

Deploying a new KRC721 token can be done by using Remix and ERC721 contract from Open Zeppelin open source.

  1. Create new contract KRC721.sol and copy code from the following sample

// contracts/GameItem.sol
// SPDX-License-Identifier: MIT
pragma solidity ^0.8.0;

import "@openzeppelin/contracts/token/ERC721/extensions/ERC721URIStorage.sol";
import "@openzeppelin/contracts/utils/Counters.sol";

contract GameItem is ERC721URIStorage {
    using Counters for Counters.Counter;
    Counters.Counter private _tokenIds;

    constructor() ERC721("GameItem", "ITM") {}

    function awardItem(address player, string memory tokenURI)
        returns (uint256)
        uint256 newItemId = _tokenIds.current();
        _mint(player, newItemId);
        _setTokenURI(newItemId, tokenURI);

        return newItemId;

3. Deploy contract

After deployed, new items can be created:

> gameItem.awardItem(playerAddress, "https://game.example/item-id-8u5h2m.json")
Transaction successful. Transaction hash: 0x...
Events emitted:
 - Transfer(0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000000, playerAddress, 7)

And the owner and metadata of each item queried:

> gameItem.ownerOf(7)
> gameItem.tokenURI(7)

This tokenURI should resolve to a JSON document that might look something like:

    "name": "Thor's hammer",
    "description": "Mjölnir, the legendary hammer of the Norse god of thunder.",
    "image": "https://game.example/item-id-8u5h2m.png",
    "strength": 20
