How to Create Collections on Opensea Without Gas Fee.
NFT stands for non-fungible tokens which in simple words means unique. Once something is registered as an NFT, it gets a unique digital stamp that allows linking between the owner and that exact digital asset.
Here is how to mint a free NFT on OpenSea.
You will first need to create an OpenSea account, for which you will need a MetaMask Wallet

According to support.opensea.io, The new OpenSea collection manager allows creators to make NFTs without any upfront gas cost, as the NFT isn’t transferred on-chain until the first purchase or transfer is made.
NFTs made with the Collection Manager follow the ERC-1155 standard, partly to help with gas-free minting and partly to help us add exciting features in the near future.
