An ERC721 will show unique tokenIDs, while an ERC1155 will show a single token with multiple owners.
If you're looking to verify whether an address owns a specific token, we recommend using Etherscan as the source of truth.
Open up your contract on Etherscan and type in the wallet of the owner you're trying to verify and enter the ID you're trying to verify.
Congrats on the sale! After the auction is complete, please ensure that you or the winner of the auction has finalized the sale. As the creator, this can be done in the Gallery App from Manifold Studio. Click the (...) dropdown and select Finalize auction. As the winner of the new piece, the auction can be finalized from the auction page.
Once this is done, the piece will be transferred to the new collector and the ETH will be transferred to the artist.
If you're having issues verifying the transfer of funds, please check your internal transactions from Etherscan.
If you’re looking to split the primary sale among multiple addresses and only see a single input address as the receive wallet, we recommend using a tool like 0xSplits. (0xSplits is an easy way to split on-chain payments by generating a single receiver address for multiple wallets)
ETH is paid out during every purchase. To see this, please check your internal transactions in Etherscan. Here you'll find a list of transactions that may not appear in your Metamask window.
If your token is showing up everywhere but Opensea, likely your metadata is fine and it seems like the token has been properly minted.
First, try refreshing your metadata! There is no need to burn the token.
If you are still having issues viewing your artwork on Opensea, please check if it displays correctly on Rarible. Sometimes platform will load faster than the other. Please note, if the file size is large, it will take longer for this to display on each of the sites. Depending on the file size this could anywhere from a few minutes to over an hour for large files. (Files over 300mb will not display)
If the file displays correctly on Rarible, the metadata for your token is correct and it is recommended to reach out to Opensea support.
A couple things to check:
Double check the Metadata
- 1.Please go to the Contract page from Manifold Studio, click on your address and head to your contract's Etherscan page.
- 2.On Etherscan - In the Contract section, there is a 'Read Contract' tab where you will be able to enter the token ID.
- 3.After entering the token ID, copy and paste the link and into a new tab.
- 4.This link is the metadata for your smart contract. Here you will find the Arweave link to your token. Please ensure the file is there and the data or links are correct. If the following is correct, then your token has been minted properly. If you have waited for some time and it isn't showing up, try validating the asset.
Validate if the asset is the issue
Using the link below, enter the your wallet address/token ID into the link below:
https://api.opensea.io/asset/ (Enter your wallet address/Token ID) /validate
It will look something like this:
Once you open this link into a new browser you'll be able to see if the token is the issue.
We're often asked about "collaborations" and how a creator can "partner" with Manifold. We love hearing about these ideas and the best part of Manifold Creator is that it allows for customization and the ability to do this yourself!
If the tools or mechanics you are looking for cannot be found in Manifold Studio, it can be built via an extension from a developer or a technical member of your team.
If you think you’re experiencing a bug/issue with Manifold, check out our community forum to see if anyone else has encountered a similar issue.
Help the community help you! When asking for help from the community, please include as much information as possible when creating a thread. This includes:
- Including the wallet address used to sign in
- Links to the relevant contracts
- Links to any relevant transactions

It is the marketplace contract, not a creator contract that dictates the flow of sales from the buyer to the seller, and optionally to the original creator.
The marketplace contract that determines the rules of where the sales goes. Our royalty registry is a smart contract that ‘provides instructions’ to 3rd party marketplace contracts on where money should go, but it’s up to the marketplace contract to follow those rules on voluntarily.
Manifold contracts are only able to specify the rules of the token - not the settlement of token sales
For any contracts deployed (with at least one token minted) prior to January 2, 2023, Opensea will enforce royalties on all tokens on those contracts. This includes tokens minted after January 2, 2023 on those contracts.
For contracts deployed after this date, OpenSea royalties will only be enforced if you block marketplaces OpenSea has deemed royalty avoiding. You can choose to enable this feature on your contract royalty settings page.
Because you own your contract, you are free to do whatever you please! Currently Manifold Studio doesn't support uploading to IPFS, but your contract absolutely supports it.
In the case of Arweave vs IPFS, we have evaluated both solutions and decided for our use case, Arweave is a more permanent solution. Another thing to keep in mind is that IPFS requires continual maintenance. Running your own node can be expensive and providers like Pinata can charge a monthly fee.
If you would like use IPFS for your token and already have a link on Pinata, you can update the tokenURI on your contract by following this tutorial: https://docs.manifold.xyz/v/manifold-for-developers/smart-contracts/manifold-creator/contracts/creator-core/common-functions#metadata-functions
For Manifold Studio - these optimizations are either already handled, or not applicable. Feel free to call the Manifold CreatorCore a "standard" or an "implementation" or add a letter, like "M".
The first optimization made by ERC721A is modifying the way that
ERC721Enumerablestores token metadata. The Manifold CreatorCore contract does not implement the
IERC721Enumerableinterface so this optimization is not applicable.
The second optimization made by ERC721A is an optimization for the specific use-case of batch minting that only updates the owner's balance once. (So your balance might go from 1 to 5 instead of 1 to 2, 2 to 3, and so on). This is certainly useful for batch minting, which is applicable to 10k PFP projects. For minting individual tokens in Manifold Studio, this is not applicable. We also have our own batch minting optimization, which you can read about here.
The third optimization made by ERC721A is similar to the second, but instead of batch-updating a given account owner's balance, it batch-updates the owner for a given range of tokens. For similar reasons to above, this is not really applicable to mints through Manifold Studio.
Not to worry!
When your contract is being deployed, we take an additional step to verify the contract. This additional step is meant to ensure the contract code is valid and the same code that was just deployed.
Please check the following things:
- Ensure Ledger Live updated
- Ledger Firmware on the Device itself using Manager
- Ethereum Application on the Device itself using Manager
- Turn on Blind Signing in Ethereum Application's Settings on Device
- Refer to ledger to potential - confirm issues
- Using Chrome - Seems to work better with Hardware Wallets
At this time, you are unable to view your Contract administrators from Studio. To see who your administrators are, follow these steps:
- 1.Go to your contract on Etherscan. (You can do so by clicking on your mainnet contract address in the contract overview on Studio)
- 2.Click on the "Contract" tab
- 3.Click on "Read as Proxy"
- 4.Click on the "getAdmins" function
Please double check you're signing in with the right wallet. It's likely that the account you created the account with in Manifold is not the account you deployed the token with. ie, an account created on a hot wallet and deployed from a cold wallet.
If this is the case, after signing up, you will see the appropriate deployments. If you're still running into issues please feel free to reach out to us.
If your token is stuck uploading, please give it some time. Manifold Studio uses Arweave to store your data and it can take some time before uploading.
If you restart the page and have yet to sign the transaction, your upload will resume. There is no need to delete the token and start over.
Manifold Studio creates metadata on Arweave, which is permanent and immutable. When metadata is changed, a new metadata file on Arweave is created and this is recorded on-chain. In other words, any changes to metadata done through Studio are recorded on-chain and it’s provenance preserved.
Technically, by default your artwork is on chain because we use Arweave. This is a blockchain dedicated to storing and distributing content, referred to as a "Blockweave". Because of this, your artwork is on chain, but the data for the art lives on Arweave and the token itself lives on Ethereum.
To upload via Studio you need to bundle everything into one html file. Another approach is to upload a directory with all the files directly via Pinata/Arweave and follow the steps here to mint on Studio: https://docs.manifold.xyz/tutorials/minting-html-pages#3.-uploading-the-html-page-to-ipfs-through-pinata
Opensea: My collection title is wrong. Why does it say V2 or Unidentified Contract? How do I set the royalties on Opensea?
Your collection description and title are set on Opensea and not within Manifold Studio. If you're seeing the following:
Click on the blue text to head over the Collection page. Then this button here to edit. This will allow you to edit the contract name as well as set the contract royalties!
Tokens minted to testnet are publicly available, but only to those who know specifically where to link. Imagine creating a random website and posting your work there without any kind of advertisment, unless someone knows the exact domain they will unlikely find their way there. If you would like to be more secure, you can upload a blank image for the Goerli mint once you've promoted your token to Mainnet.
Yes! Your Manifold Contracts can be imported as a series in SuperRare.
Typically creators will deploy a SR specific contract and let SuperRare know which contract address to ingest as a new series.
