HOW THE HELL DO I GET IN THIS WORLD?
Welcome to this Crypto/NFT onboarding page.
Through years of innovation we are now in possession of really powerful apps and tools to get you started and understanding the crypto world quick.
Below is the quickest route I could possibly create. This is not financial advice. But it's good advice :)
STEP 1: GET CRYPTO
There are several secure ways to swap your FIAT (the name we use to talk about centralised money like USD, GBP, EUR) for crypto assets.
My favorite is Crypterium
Follow this link to onboard and get 5$ free
Alternatively, you can go on their website at www.crypterium.com , press "Start now" and follow the steps to link your credit card with their app.
Crypterium is effectively a wallet AND a bank AND has a visa card that's directly linked to your crypto and that can be used for apple pay or anything really.
Another Wallet you can use is Portis
It has an option to instantly fund your wallet with any bank card.
STEP 2: GET METAMASK
You now have a crypto wallet, loaded with some crypto that you just bought. Congrats! You've done the hardest part!!
Now go to https://metamask.io/download.html and install the free Metamask wallet to your browser. It is a secure, blockchain powered extension.
From there onwards, Metamask is what will be used to log in to any NFT and Crypto Art exchange.
Just make sure you save the SEED PHRASE that is only shown during set up.
STEP 3: JOIN IN ON THE FUN!
Now, you can transfer some crypto to metamask. Your wallet address is public and can be shared with no risk.
Add your metamask wallet address to Crypterium or Portis and send some funds there.
It's very easy and you can copy the address with one click.
Then, join in on the fun!
Log into any NFT Decentralised Auction House, or platform and you can bid, mint, or do anything else we're doing!
Everything from this point onwards is pretty much a One Click action. log in, Sign, Mint, Sell, all of this is just a wallet authorisation that effectively encrypts your actions on the blockchain and makes it all work forever. It's THAT easy :)
A good list of ressources to interact with can be the following sites (linking to my profiles ;) feel free to follow or send me crypto or even a NFT if you feel like it was helpful
