# On which blockchain should you create your NFT?

In October 2022, our new minter will be deployed on Optimism, Polygon and Ethereum mainnet.

As of October 4, 2022, it is not relevant anymore to create your NFT on Ethereum Mainnet. It is strongly advised to use one of Ethereum's L2s ('layer 2') like Optimism, Arbitrum, zkSync 2.0, or even Polygon (a 'sidechain' that can be considered as a layer 2). Our 'legacy' minter is available on Polygon.

Network Minting cost (gas fees) Minting cost (USD eq.)
Optimism 0.05 ETH 0.01 USD
Polygon 0.05 MATIC 0.05 USD *
Ethereum (L1) 0.05 ETH 34 USD *

* as of October 4, 2022

Keep in mind that you can sell your NFT on different marketplaces (e.g. OpenSea) using Polygon. There is no specific benefit of using Ethereum Mainnet today, people can buy your NFTs on any of these networks.
