Now that you have some ETH in your wallet, you can start collecting art just like you'd buy a bitcon or any other cryptocurrency. Go to your cryptoart platform of choice (SuperRare
). The process is the same on every platform:
1. Connect your Metamask wallet to the platform.
2. Set up your account.
3. Start browsing and find some cryptoart you like.
4. Depending on the piece you can bid or buy directly for the price listed. You'll digitally sign a contract agreeing to purchase. You'll be charged gas fees for these transactions, the service fees of cryptoart. These fees fluctuate widely depending on various factors, but you can check gasnow.org
for the cheapest time to buy.
It might take up to two hours for the transaction to be confirmed and therefore for the NFT to show up in your wallet. Once it does, you'll officially own your first piece of cryptoart. Congrats! ;)
