How to find the compression tree address
Visit XRAY: Navigate to XRAY.
Select an NFT: Open up an NFT from your compressed NFT collection and search for it on XRAY.
Locate metadata: Scroll down to the bottom of XRAY and find the "Metadata" section. Expand this section.
Find the tree address: You'll see an address listed under the "tree" field in the metadata section. Copy this address.
Add to comments: Paste this copied address into the comments section of your listing on Creator Hub.
