LEARN MORE
NFT stands for Non Fungible Token, this means that it’s unique and cannot be replaced with something else. An NFT is a digital file with a distinctive fingerprint that protects it from being copied, counterfeited or stolen. Most NFTs are part of the Ethereum blockchain. Ethereum is a cryptocurrency, like Bitcoin, but its blockchain also supports these NFTs, which store extra information that makes them work differently from an actual ETH coin. Say, by having the capability of holding an original piece of art.

When you buy your favorite artists work as an NFT, you are investing in them like you're buying stocks in a company, hoping their work will rise and in turn your art will appreciate in value.

Technically, any digital file from the Internet can be downloaded and copied (even for free) as many times as you want, including the art that comes with an NFT. But NFTs are designed to give you something extra that can’t never be copied: the proof of ownership of an artwork (while the artist can still retain the copyright and reproduction rights, just as it happens with physical artworks).
Ethereum is the cryptocurrency tied to NFTs, so it's what you need if you want to own an NFT. The first thing to do is getting an Ethereum wallet. A digital wallet is where you'll store your cryptocurrency, it's also where you're going to interact with NFT platforms and keep all your precious crypto art safe in one place.

1. Install the Metamask extension for your web Browser or download it to your mobile device as an app (for iPhone or Android).

2. Be sure to keep your pass phrase safe and secure. If you loose it there is no account recovery, there are many dramatic stories about it.

3. Locate the unique hashcode or address of your wallet. This is how you are going to be buying and withdrawing crypto from your account.

4. Now singn up to any crypto trading platform available on your region (ie. Binance, Coinbase or Coinsmart) and follow the steps to buy some ETH and send it to your wallet. Try buying only $50, just to get a hang of it. There are going to be some fees involved to make any transaction and it might a little time to send crypto to your wallet address or to withdraw funds from it.
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, NiftyGateway, Makersplace, Foundation, KnowOrigin, Rarible or OpenSea). 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 crypto art 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 crypto art. 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 crypto art. Congrats! ;)
