Upload to IPFS with Piñata

Bueno offers an "Upload to IPFS" feature (via Piñata) that will upload all of your token assets and metadata. For most collections, you will need to upgrade your Piñata subscription, as there are limits on the free tier. If you're looking for a completely free one-click upload, check out our NFTStorage guide.

Before you begin:

Sign up to Piñata -https://www.pinata.cloud

Note: Depending on the size of your token set, you may need to change your plan. The free plan has a 1 GB storage limit and uploading will fail once you exceed it.

Creating an Admin Piñata JWT

Sign up/log in to Piñata and navigate to the API Keys page.


Click the New Key button and fill in the form:

  • Enable the Admin toggle

  • Give your key a recognizable name

Copy all of this information to a secure location.

Note: Bueno only requires your JWT.

Upload to IPFS From Bueno

After you generate a token set you'll see the Upload to IPFS button.

Important: Bueno will use your JWT to create a single-use API Key. The key will appear in your Piñata API Keys and can be revoked at any time.

Once your token set has been uploaded you'll be able to copy the Base URI. You can use this URI to see all of your metadata on the IPFS network. If you aren't launching your collection with a Bueno smart contract, then your developer will most likely need this URL.
