Address Gate


The Address Gate guard restricts the mint to a single address which must match the address of the minting wallet.


Guard Settings

The Address Gate guard contains the following settings:

  • Address: The only address that is allowed to mint from the Candy Machine.


Here’s how we can set up a Candy Machine using the Address Gate guard via the JS SDK.

import { TODO } from '@metaplex-foundation/js';
import { TODO } from '@solana/web3.js';

const { candyMachine } = await metaplex.candyMachines().create({
// ...
guards: {
addressGate: {
address: someWallet.publicKey,

Now, only someWallet will be able to mint from this Candy Machine.

Mint Settings

The Address Gate guard does not need Mint Settings.

Route Instruction

The Address Gate guard does not support the route instruction.
