Mint a License Token

This section demonstrates how to mint a License Token for an IPA. You can only mint a License Token for an IPA if it has License Terms attached to it. A License Token is minted as an ERC1155 token and contains the necessary licensing details.


  • Setup the client object.
  • An IPA that has License Terms added. Learn how to add License Terms to an IPA here.

Mint License

To mint a License Token, we will need the:

  • licensor_ip_id - the ipId of the IPA we are minting a License Token from
  • license_template - the address of the license template
  • license_terms_id - the id of the License Terms (ex. "1" for Non-Commercial Social Remixing)
  • amount - # of License Tokens to be minted (usually 1, unless the minter decides to mint a batch and distribute it in another way later on)
  • receiver - wallet receiving the License Token, usually the wallet address that is executing the transaction
response = story_client.License.mintLicenseTokens(
    licensor_ip_id="0x431A7Cc86381F9bA437b575D3F9E931652fFbbdd",  # Licensor IP ID
    license_template="0x260B6CB6284c89dbE660c0004233f7bB99B5edE7",  # License Template address
    license_terms_id=2,  # License Terms ID
    amount=1,  # Amount of license tokens to mint
    receiver="0x14dC79964da2C08b23698B3D3cc7Ca32193d9955"  # Address of the receiver

print(f"License Token minted at transaction hash {response['txHash']} License ID: {response['licenseTokenIds']}")
