This is for all my creatives, artists, hustlers and people creating value in the world. NFTs are a wonderful technology that allow you to capture the value of something and make money from that value you have created.
What you need before you get started:
If you’ve never connected your wallet to Opensea before, and/or aren’t logged in to your wallet at the time you access Opensea, simply click the ‘wallet icon’ in the top right corner and follow the prompts to connect.
Don’t be alarmed, this is normal. Be sure to check that you are visiting the official Opensea site.
Remember, it can be anything in digital format but be sure it is in one of the below formats mentioned.
This will be its title so make it a good one!
External links can take your buyer to a website or space where there is more information available.
If this is your first piece, Opensea will automatically start you with a collection that you can add to later.
This feature is great if you have a collection with very similar styles and small nuanced differences in design. For the Art and profile picture space. it’s common to have ‘traits’ and thus the below section allows you to add numerical values to each trait.
Unlockable content is a cool feature if you want to add any more perks to your asset. E.g. If you have an art piece you are selling, you might add the draft in unlockable content for the buyer.
You might decide to make 100 of the one asset, in which case, you can adjust the supply number of your NFT.
Choose the blockchain you would like to mint the NFT on.
This landing page provides a summary of the NFT you are minting. Press ‘Sell’ in the top right-hand corner to process.
The price and type of sale you set on your NFT is completely up to you. You can launch with a timed auction where people will bid for your NFT or you can set a fixed price.
Choose your option and follow the prompts.
The final stage to completing your listing is paying the gas fee.
In 2022 Q1, the general gas fee price is approx. $80-$120. As layer 2 solutions become more prominent, this fee will reduce.
VOILA, you are an NFT creator.
