How To Create A Token On WAX

Attention: We have redesigned our token generator and moved it to a new website.

It's new home is waxdao.io

Want to create your own token on the WAX blockchain?

This tutorial will show you how.

No need to learn to code, just click a few buttons and you'll have your own token in less than 5 minutes.

Full disclosure, we created the token generator and it costs around ~$12 or so to use it.

Step 1: Signing In

The first thing you'll need to do is navigate to our Wax Token Generator Page.

Then, sign in with your Anchor Wallet.

Step 2: Getting Whitelisted

After you sign in, it's time to get whitelisted.

You have 3 options for this.

You can choose to pay 250 WAX, 25,000 WOJAK or burn 1 Wojak NFT.

Once you figure out which option you want to go with, click on the corresponding button.

Step 3: Deploying The Contract

Now that you are whitelisted by our smart contract, you can go ahead and deploy your token contract.

You only need to do this one time, and then you'll be able to use it to create as many Wax tokens as you like.

Storing the contract on the Wax blockchain requires about 400 WAX worth of RAM, so make sure you have enough resources.

Note: By default, Anchor Wallet blocks any transactions related to deploying contracts.

This is for your own safety, and there is nothing we can do about this.

In order to deploy your token contract, you will need to enable the setting called "Allow Dangerous Transactions" in Anchor Wallet.

Once you've configured Anchor Wallet for contract transactions, now you just need to confirm that your are whitelisted by clicking the "Confirm Status" button.

You need to be signed in for this to work, so make sure your wallet address is showing at the top of the page.

If you don't see it, you either need to sign in or refresh the page.

If all goes well, a new button will appear after you confirm your whitelist status.

Click the "Deploy Contract Now" button and you'll be asked to confirm a transaction.

Once you confirm, you'll be able to start creating Wax tokens with your account.

Step 4: Create A New Token

Now that you have the contract deployed, you are ready start creating tokens.

All you need to do is enter the name of your new token, enter a maximum supply (whole numbers only), and enter the amount of decimal places you want your token to have.

Once you're done filling out the form, click the "Confirm Details" button.

You'll be asked to confirm your new token's details by typing "YES" into the box.

After you confirm, you'll see a new button called "Create Token".

Clicking this button will prompt you to sign a transaction and create your new Wax token.

Step 5: Issue Tokens

Now that you've created your token, you can start issuing tokens and using them for your new Wax project.

Tokens can only be issued to the account who created the token (that would be you), so you'll need to issue the tokens to yourself.

Then, you can do whatever you please with them- send them to others, anything you like.

To issue tokens, just fill out the "Issue Tokens" form.

For the token symbol and decimal places, make sure to put the exact same details that you put when you created the token.

Fot the amount to issue, just enter a whole number (the form will automatically add the amount of decimals you choose).

Once again, click "Confirm Details" and type "YES" if everything looks correct.

Then, click "Issue Tokens" and confirm the transaction.

You should now have a balance showing in your account on Bloks.

Optional: Fill Out A Request Form

Your token is now created, and you've issued some to your Wax account.

Technically, you're done.

If you'd like us to list your token on our Wax Token Tracker, feel free to fill out a request form.

Otherwise, you can be on your way now.

Enjoy your new Wax token!
