Congratulations! You’ve decided to jump into the rabbit hole and buy your first NFT. Great! Now, what do you need to do?
First, you need a digital wallet. Consider this your passport to the blockchain. With it you’re going to receive funds, log into Web3 dapps (Decentralized Apps), and more importantly for us, buy and enjoy NFTs.
There are tons of wallets! But for those of us that aren't technical and just want to learn and play around NFTs we recommend using Kukai. It allows you to interact with Tezos (the blockchain that Nemo is built on!) using your existing Google, Facebook or Twitter account, so no new accounts to create or passwords to remember.
Now that you have your wallet, you need to load it up! If you were going to buy art in a traditional gallery, you would load your wallet up with dollars, most likely through your credit card.
Each blockchain has a native cryptocurrency, Nemo uses Tezos ($XTZ). So for buying Nemo NFTs, you’ll need to load your wallet with Tezos.
You need to create an account with Moonpay, a crypto provider, to buy & send XTZ (Tezos) to your Kukai wallet. This is a separate account from your Kukai wallet (we know, it can get confusing!).
When you go to a bank you’re asked to show your ID to verify it’s actually you and not someone else. Buying cryptocurrencies in an exchange is similar, you’ll have to provide your ID to comply with US regulations.
Nemo NFTs start at 100 xtz, we recommend you get a couple more Tezos to cover for network and transaction fees.
Now that you have both your wallet, and funds (Tezos) in it, you are ready to buy your NFT from Nemo 🚀
Objtk.com is an NFT marketplace that uses the Tezos blockchain. In order to buy NFTs there you'll need to sign in, or sync, with your wallet.
