Purchasing NFT’s is not recommended for people new to the crypto space, mistakes can be made and the nature of crypto can mean mistakes are permanent and irreversible. Please make yourself familiar with OpenSea platform and how it works at Opensea.io

There are no user accounts or storage on our website, we use the OpenSea platform which utilise your eth wallet to sign in/up and store NFT’s.

NFT stands for non-fungible tokens like ERC-721 (a smart contract standard) tokens which are hosted on Ethereum’s own blockchain. NFTs are unique digital items such as collectibles or artworks or game items. As an artist, by tokenizing your work you both ensure that it is unique and brand it as your work. The actual ownership is blockchain-managed.

Whenever you create a collectible you can set a certain percentage as royalty for secondary sales. Example: You create a digital painting and sell it for 0.2 ETH, the royalty is 10 percent. Your buyer then sells your painting at a higher price point for 0.5 ETH. Here, the royalty system kicks in. As the original content creator you receive 10% of that sale, being 0.05 ETH.

Yes, just go on the detail page of a collectible you own, open the “…” menu and select “transfer token”.

NFT’s are a great way to support an artist directly while being able to preserve the authenticity in the digital space as well as engage in trading art pieces to everyone around the world. You can potentially own a 1 of 1 copy of work that an artist will never reproduce. The possibilities are endless and the future is coming for us!
