1. Wallet:

A wallet is something you must have in order to purchase an NFT and utilize the OpenSea platform. OpenSea offers a plethora of wallet options. For more information on which wallets they accept, please click the link we have provided here.

One thing you need to know regarding your wallet is to write down your seed phrase, or as some call it, a key phrase, and always keep it in a safe place.

This is something you never give to anyone. If you happen to lose your keywords, all of your assets can be lost. Once you have set up your wallet, you must add crypto to the wallet. Once you have done this, you are ready to go.

2. Open OpenSea

Head over to opensea.io or type it into the browser. Keep in mind the ending is [.io] NOT [.com].

On this page, you will see all of the important information regarding the NFT. From the price to past transactions and holders, this is imperative information that you should be looking into.

Along with that, you will see all the characteristics of the NFT and how rare each one is. You must pay attention to all of the attributes of the NFT.

The rarer it is the more value the digital art piece possesses. As you can see, the properties that the NFT holds are very low in percentage, meaning that many of the digital images do not share features with the one I have selected.

This is an excellent thing, the rarer the better.

Buying It

Purchasing an NFT

As you see here, we have to buy now or make an offer. This allows individuals to have a choice in what they would like to do. Keep in mind that some NFTs will just have: buy, make an offer, or both.

So we select buy now and our MetaMask will pop up. You would select [Next] and do the same with the following pop-up window. Keep in mind that Ethereum’s gas fees (transaction fees) are still high.

And with that, you will be asked to approve the price of the gas fee. Once that is done, you can call yourself a proud NFT owner. So there you have it, folks.
