Typically used in the context of NFTs, artists allow users to “mint” their NFTs as a way of releasing their collection or generating generative art NFTs. Users have no idea what NFT they will be minting, and may be lucky enough to mint an NFT containing high value properties. Once NFTs have been minted, they can be sold on the secondary market. NFT collections with a max quantity are minted until “minted out”.
