You’ll need digital currency, a crypto wallet, and an Indigena account to start buying or selling NFTs using Indigena. Let’s get started!
1. Digital Currency (ETH)
You can get ETH, the digital currency that fuels transactions on the Ethereum blockchain, from a digital currency exchange like easycrypto.
You will need ETH to “mint” an NFT, purchase an NFT, and for gas fees to complete transactions.
Now that you have ETH, let’s get a crypto wallet.
2. Crypto Wallet
A crypto wallet, such as MetaMask, stores your ETH and processes transactions on the Ethereum blockchain. A unique wallet address will be generated for you, and you’ll use this address to complete transactions.
All transactions connected to your wallet address can be found on etherscan.io, an independent blockchain explorer. It’s a good idea to check Etherscan after completing each transaction.
Why do I need a wallet before buying and selling on Indigena?
