A non-fungible token (NFT) is a unique digital file stored on a blockchain (a digital ledger). An NFT is a cryptographic token, but unlike cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and many network or utility tokens, NFTs are not mutually interchangeable, i.e. not fungible. wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-fungible_token
Non-fungible tokens are digital assets that contain identifying data recorded in smart contracts (i.e. the Ethereum blockchain ledger). So it’s like owning a rare baseball card in a digital format and the ledger shows a record that you own that NFT (and it shows who previously owned that NFT).
You can create an NFT for free on the website: OpenSea.io
All you need to get started is a crypto wallet. We suggest and personally use MetaMask.io
You will need to create a MetaMask wallet and fund it with Ethereum (ETH) before buying/selling on OpenSea. MetaMask is the oldest, most trusted crypto wallet.
Navigate to metamask.io and click the download button. Select your desktop browser or mobile device.
How to Create NFT Art
Your “Seed Phrase” is the backup to your wallet. You will need to write down these secret words (in the correct order) and save them in a safe location. Save a backup in multiple places. Never share the phrase with anyone. Compare your seed phrase to your credit card number!
Fund Your Wallet
In order to buy, create, and sell NFTs on OpenSea, you will need to have some ETH in your wallet.
Click the “0x…” number at the top of your MetaMask account to copy your wallet address (this is where you will send ETH).
