NFTs had been making a buzz in the past few months, but what are they? Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are a new type of digital asset that is unique and cannot be replicated. This makes them perfect for representing physical assets in the digital world, such as collectibles, artworks, or game items.
In fact, the digital asset economy is growing rapidly, and NFTs are quickly becoming a key player. With it, the need for more secure and user-friendly ways to store digital assets is also increasing. That’s where Metamask comes in.
Metamask is a popular wallet where you can store, send, and receive Ether and ERC-20 tokens. It also supports NFTs, which means you can keep your precious collectibles securely in Metamask.
In this article, we will show you how to add NFT to Metamask so you can start trading and collecting them.
The first thing you need to do is download MetaMask. It’s a free, secure, and user-friendly cryptocurrency wallet, so you don’t have to worry even if you are not tech-savvy.
You may install MetaMask on several browsers (including Brave, Edge, Google Chrome, and Firefox). You can also install MetaMask using your Android or iOS mobile devices from the wallet’s website. Click the “Install MetaMask” button, and a new tab will open with the MetaMask extension where you can add it to your browser.
Once you have installed MetaMask, you will see a fox icon in the top right corner of your browser. Click on it, and a login screen will appear.
Creating a wallet
The next step is to create a wallet. Press on the “Get Started” button and choose either the “Create a New Wallet” or “Import a Wallet” to proceed.
If this is your first time creating a wallet in MetaMask, you should just click on the “Create New Wallet” button. If you already have another Ethereum address with ERC-20 tokens in it, then you can import an existing Ethereum address into MetaMask.
You will be routed to a secret backup phrase screen, where you will be asked to write down a set of words. These are your ‘secret’ recovery phrases and can be used if the MetaMask is ever lost or stolen by someone else. Write them down carefully, as this is the only way to restore access to your account.
After that, click on “Next” and confirm your secret backup phrase. This is done by rearranging the phrases in their proper order and clicking on “Confirm”.
You’ll get some pointers on how to keep your secret recovery phrase safe. Click “All Done” when you’ve finished. Now you are ready to start using your wallet, and you can add NFT to MetaMask.
Fund ETH to your wallet
To add NFTs to your MetaMask wallet, you will need some ETH. You can buy ETH on several exchanges or from friends and family.
Click “Buy” to add ETH to your wallet using a debit card on Wyre. If you click on “Continue to Wyre”, a new tab will appear, and you may input the amount of ETH you want to purchase, pick from Apple Pay or make a payment using your credit card.
Enter your card information, billing address, contact details, and then click “Submit”. Your order will be processed, and you will see the amount of ETH credited to your MetaMask wallet.
