Where are my NFTs stored?

When you upload your NFTs via thirdweb, we handle NFT pinning and storage for you. By default, we use IPFS to store images and metadata.

The storage upload limits for the Starter plan are 50GB monthly free limit and 5GB per file size rate limit. For the Pro plan, the storage upload limit is 50GB monthly free and 25GB per file size rate limit. Beyond the 50GB monthly free limit, the cost is $0.10 per GB (billed monthly). For a custom Enterprise rate, please contact Sales.
