Get collection details

What is a Collection?

A collection represents a unique smart contract on the blockchain that will be in charge of minting a series of NFTs.

When you create a collection, Original deploys a unique and secured smart contract on the blockchain (testnet or mainnet depending on the environment you are in) that will execute NFT mints on your demand.

In order to start minting NFTs you first need to create a collection via your developer console.



Request headers are required. See API basics introduction for more information.
