Mint Tokens

At this point, your Candy Machine is ready to mint tokens. Depending on your configurations, it is either restricted to whitelist users or the goLiveDate has not been reached yet. In all cases, the owner (authority) of the Candy Machine - i.e., the wallet that created the Candy Machine - can mint tokens.

The only exception is when captcha is enabled. In this case, it is not possible to mint tokens from the command line. If you would like to mint tokens, update the goLiveDate to null and temporarily disable the captcha settings.

Mint One Token

Minting one token can be done using the command mint_one_token:

ts-node ~/metaplex/js/packages/cli/src/candy-machine-v2-cli.ts mint_one_token \
-e devnet \
-k ~/.config/solana/devnet.json \
-c example

If successful, the output will be similar to:

wallet public key: N4f6zftYsuu4yT7icsjLwh4i6pB1zvvKbseHj2NmSQw
mint_one_token finished 3R9XADK91RWESj3FZdzB2QXHchpjwcS5khdwZVoSd3petHyqt2T6MjntMxozX2meRFyaFZEsqjPxbCUjxz5eL5z9

You can check that the mint was successful by using the spl-token command to check the accounts available on your wallet:

spl-token accounts

If the mint was successful, you will see a new account in your wallet:

Token                                         Balance

Mint Multiple Tokens

You can also mint multiple tokens using the command mint_multiple_tokens and specifying the number of tokens to be minted:

ts-node ~/metaplex/js/packages/cli/src/candy-machine-v2-cli.ts mint_multiple_tokens \
-e devnet \
-k ~/.config/solana/devnet.json \
-c example \
--number 2

If successful, the output will be similar to following output:
