    How to create an NFT: steps to follow

    Here is a sequence you can follow to create a quality NFT that can attract buyers. It should be noted that these are not mandatory steps that you must follow strictly. We only seek to offer you a process to improve the design of your NFT.

    1. Choose your artwork

    The first thing you need to do to start creating your NFT is to select the material you want to convert. In this case, there are infinite possibilities, you can convert illustrations, photographs, videos, and many other things into an NFT. We recommend that you choose a piece that is attractive and interesting to potential buyers.

    Another very important aspect of the work is that it must belong to you. If you convert into an NFT a piece that does not belong to you, you could get into legal trouble.

    2. Fund your crypto wallet

    Creating an NFT in some cases can cost money, which is why we recommend having some cryptocurrency in your wallet. However, before purchasing any type of coin you will need to know which blockchain network to use for your NFT. The most famous network is Ethereum, used by most marketplaces and is quite useful for those who are just starting.

    Among the best crypto wallets, you have MetaMask, Trust Wallet, and Coinbase Wallet. The first one is the most recommended because it's one of the easiest to use. Once you have your wallet chosen, you will need to buy the cryptocurrency to operate with. If you are going to work with Ethereum you must have the Ether coin in your funds.

    3. Select the NFT marketplace

    An NFT marketplace is a place where you can buy or sell crypto art. If you want to know more we have a pretty useful article about it. When you have your piece selected and your wallet prepared, you will need to decide which market to upload your NFT to. This step may be a bit difficult since there are currently many NFT marketplaces on the Internet. However, this will all depend on the type of content you want to convert to NFT.

    There are currently NFT marketplaces specializing in video game content, sports, and so on. However, since you are just starting, OpenSea is a good choice, as it is the largest and most varied marketplace. Once the platform is selected, it is time to connect your wallet, this can cost money depending on the platform.

    4. Upload the file of your artwork

    For this step, you already have everything you need for the creation of your NFT. Regardless of the platform you use, it will have a section to upload your NFT. Once you access this section, they will show you the steps to follow and when you finish you will be minting your NFT.

    5. Add your NFT details

    Congratulations, your NFT is almost ready, however, you must define some details for the purchase process. One of these details is the method of acquisition of the piece. You can sell your NFT through a fixed price, a timed auction, or an auction in which you control the time.

    After this series of steps, you have successfully created your NFT. Now you just have to wait for a potential buyer to make an offer to get your piece of crypto art. We hope this guide will be helpful for your projects in the NFT world.
