ERC-721A is an implementation of ERC-721 (the Non-fungible token standard) that provides significant gas savings for batch mints of NFTs (minting multiple tokens in one transaction).

This is done by:

  1. Removing redundant storage of duplicate metadata and from the base implementation. 
  2. Updating owners wallet balance once per batch mint
  3. Updating the owner data once per batch mint.
