The following content guidelines serve as a reference for how Crossmint reviews and classifies collections that integrate with our Services to better understand the intent and utility of the underlying Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT) and whether they are aligned with our Master Services Agreement, Terms of Service and Content Policy (collectively, our “Terms”) as applicable.
The goal of our collection review process is to protect the interests of our users, clients and mutual parties. The collection review process is one measure to define and enforce the standard at which we hold future, and existing, client integrations accountable.
Collections that do not comply with our Terms or that may constitute any of the forbidden categories of content below, shall not be allowed on our platform or may be disabled upon due review by Crossmint’s team.
Insufficient or inaccurate collection details
- Crossmint reviews NFT collections based on their readiness to receive payments in a live environment. If a collection is submitted for verification with insufficient or inaccurate collection details, the submission will be denied.
- Project owners are responsible for ensuring that their NFT collections are submitted for verification with the website they plan on minting NFTs from.
- NFT collections that are early in development are to use Crossmint’s staging environment until the collection is ready to launch and receive payments in a live environment.
