    • Numerical: The first person to purchase the NFT receives edition #1, and the second person receives edition #2, etc.
    • Random: The first person to purchase gets a randomly selected edition from the max quantity minted. For example, if you mint 100,000 NFTs, the first minted token could be #1,000 of the 100,000.
  3. Select the Enforce purchase limit checkbox to cap the number of tokens of a listing or packs purchasable for any specific wallet address.
  4. Select the Allow Secondary Sales checkbox if you'd like for this NFT to be sellable on the secondary marketplace.
