Using ZORA's ERC-1155 Edition tool, create multiple editions in a single collection and release them over time or all at once. You have complete control over how you organize and roll out your project. There are three components to an edition collection: the collection as a whole, the editions, and the individual tokens within those editions.

Want to test out your collection? We recommend using our testnet before deploying your collection to mainnet. Testing on the testnet provides a risk-free environment where you can ensure that your collection functions correctly and identify any potential issues before they occur on the mainnet, saving you time and ETH.
