I wanna start off by saying I was not paid to write this article, it’s not a sponsored post. I’ve spent the last few months learning about web3 and NFTs and recently sold some photos I took in Japan as NFTs on Foundation so I thought I’d share a bit of my experience. I know there are a bunch of you here who are interested in exploring the space but haven’t been able to get on this platform (it remains invite-only). Good news for you, I reached out to their team and they kindly gave me some invites to offer to our community. If you want an invite, follow the directions on this tweet and you and a friend could both get invites! You have until Monday evening to submit. I have 20 Foundation invite codes to give out.
Keep in mind there are other places you can sell your NFTs. OpenSea is another great option and it doesn’t require an invite. The general consensus seems to be that Foundation is good for 1/1 NFTs and OpenSea is good for larger collections. I may do a separate post about OpenSea in the future if there’s interest.
Keep in mind, this article is not meant to be a comprehensive introduction to NFTs! There are many resources out that do a great job of explaining what NFTs are. If you’re starting from zero, Google is your friend, put some time in. Come back here once you’ve at least setup a Metamask wallet and put some eth in it. Gas fees have been low lately so this is a nice window of opportunity to explore minting your work.
Okay, if you’ve gotten this far it means you have a wallet setup and you feel like you’re ready to start creating NFTs buuut you may not actually be ready quite yet. Below are some things I’ve learned.
