Whitelist setup

Token-gating access is essentially a three-step process:

  1. you setup a whitelist

  2. people verify they hold the token and they are added to the whitelist

  3. you approve access to the vault from your whitelist.

Now, let's look at step 1, setting up your whitelist.

The setup is all done on one screen with the following options and decisions.

Choose vault

Choose a vault you have created with your Akord account over at v2.akord.com to gate access to. It can be a permanent or cloud storage vault.

Token standard

We currently only support ERC20, ERC 721 and ERC 1155 tokens on Ethereum and Polygon. You can find out which standard a token uses by looking under the 'Details' section of the token on Opensea.

Contract address

You can find the contract address in Metamask by clicking on the NFT and scrolling down – it is listed just above the 'Send' button and you can copy it to your clipboard by clicking the icon to the right of the text. The contract address is also listed on the token page if it is listed on a marketplace like Opensea.

Available spots (optional)

You can specify a limited number of available spots on your whitelist. For example, if you enter 100 then only that number of people will be able to join the whitelist for approval. This could be used to create scarcity in a first-come-first served campaign.

If you don't specify a number then we will allow an unlimited number of people to join the whitelist.

Access control

Specify the permissions for people entering your vault.

If you select 'View only', members of the vault will be able to view and download content, but they won't be able to add to the vault by uploading, renaming files, sending messages etc.

By contrast, if you select 'Contributor' members of the vault will be able to add files, edit content and send messages.
