NFT Guide; What They Are and How They Work

How to Mint Your First NFT

Let’s get started.

  • A cryptocurrency e.g. Ethereum, Polygon, or Solana, but for this discussion, let’s stick with Ethereum.
  • A wallet for storing ETH and interacting with metaverse-based platforms. MetaMask is mainly used.
  • Access to an NFT marketplace.
  • Set up your wallet. After you’ve configured your preferred wallet, link it to OpenSea by clicking the wallet symbol in the top right corner.
  • Assemble your collection. Set up your collection by clicking My Collections. Set a secondary sales charge, add social links, descriptions, and profile photographs.
  • Upload your NFTs. Upload your work (picture, video, or 3D art), give it a title and description, and then personalize your NFTs with properties, metrics, and unlockable content.
  • Put them up for sale. Select from auctions, fixed-price listings, and declining-price listings.
  • Go to, sign up, then connect your wallet (i.e., MetaMask).
  • At the top of the page, click the blue CREATE button.
  • Choose whether you want to mint a single NFT or several versions of an NFT.
  • Upload your image, video, or sound file here.
  • Enter a price, a name, a description, and any royalties.
  • Select ‘Create an Item’ from the drop-down menu.
  • Your wallet will request that you sign and pay for gas. Gas prices can be high; thus, it’s worth it to time the minting of an NFT.

Selling NFTs

When selling your NFTs, finding the correct “Community” is essential. If no one knows who you are, it will be challenging to purchase your NFT. Many people hear about the money floating around and decide to get in without conducting their research into meeting people and interacting with them in meaningful ways. You might get lucky and capture some ETH flying around, but in the end, the community is a more dependable technique.
