WHAT IS MINT IN NFT

The literal translation of "Mint" is to coin, a term that is generally used to refer to the creation of a coin. In other words, when we say that we are "minting" a token or NFT, it means that we are creating such NFT or token on the Blockchain we are acting on.

This process is different depending on the Blockchain in which we act, but the mint concept means the same thing in all cases.

In the Solana Blockchain NFTs are minted on "mint sites". That is, on pages that are used specifically for minting.

The commission for minting is generally 0.02 SOL, a reasonably low fee for what we can find in other networks such as Ethereum.

Once a collection of NFTs has been minted, they are listed on the Secondary Market. That is, in marketplaces where they can be bought and sold between holders and buyers. The most common marketplaces are Magic Eden, Hadeswap y Coral Cube.
