How to buy an NFT.

If you want to buy an NFT — such as a digital art piece — you first need to open a crypto wallet, buy crypto, then use it to purchase an NFT in an online marketplace like OpenSea or Mintable.

Create a Metamask account or connect your other wallet.

MetaMask is a cryptocurrency wallet used to interact with the Ethereum blockchain. Once you buy Ethereum, you can access it through MetaMask and use it to purchase and store NFTs.

Use Coinbase to buy Ethereum because you need to have Ethereum in your wallet in order to buy an NFT.

  1. Open your browser and go to the OpenSea marketplace.
  2. Register or Log in on OpenSea.io
  3. Find the desired NFT. Regia Art on OpenSea.
  4. Press the “Buy Now” button.
  5. Agree to the terms of the marketplace and choose “Checkout.”
  6. Use your MetaMask browser extension to buy it.
  7. And the NFT drops into your wallet and e-mail.

An NFT of a popular gif may still be shared millions of times online.

But, only one person is the actual owner of the content, and that is the person who owns the NFT.

It’s possible to still see Jack Dorsey’s $2.95-million NFT tweet on Twitter.

NFT is like…“anyone can buy a Salvador Dali print.
