Second Sight Visuals
A CEO of an XR and web3 experience agency, an NFT collector and champion of MN-based entrepreneurs, and a visual artist obsessed with robots walk into a bar...
the NFT_Curious team hosted a panel discussion to demystify all things NFT - from sharing their first NFT experience to unpacking the blockchain, web3, the metaverse, and more. Enjoy a great conversation hosted live at the Hewing Hotel on November 11th, 2022.
New to NFTs? No problem
Purchasing an NFT is a simple three step process:
Step 1: Set up a crypto wallet
Your crypto wallet will interact with blockchain integrated websites (like OpenSea), be your method of payment, and allow you to buy, access, sell, and trade NFTs.
I use a metamask wallet, along with 21 million other folks around the globe. It is available in the App Store, as a plugin on your browser, and is super easy to use.
Follow these step by step instructions to set up a metamask wallet
Step 2: Get some Crypto
You have a wallet, let's get some Crypto! If you are purchasing an NFT_Curious piece, you will need to purchase some ETH, the digital currency required for transactions on the Ethereum blockchain.
You can buy ETH...
directly through the metamask wallet once downloaded
through a digital exchange like Coinbase (also a great place to keep an eye on the ever-changing value of ETH against the dollar). You will have to send the ETH to your wallet after purchase.
- Use a debit card or connect directly to your bank account (Apple Pay works great!)
- A heads up that government regulations for some transactions will require that you verify your identity (e.g. social security number, drivers, license photo, etc.)
- $50 of ETH will typically open up more quotes and offer better deals on processing fees... it is also the price point we have asked artists to consider for this show
Consider gas fees - take out a a bit more than price of the desired NFT
