The first thing you need to do is install a Web3 wallet so you can own NFTs! The easiest wallet to use is MetaMask.
1.) Go tohttps://www.metamask.io and click "Download Now". It will then prompt you to install MetaMask on your preferred browser.
2.) Click "Add to Chrome" or whichever browser you use.
3.) After adding it as an extension, go through the prompts asking you to get started and pause at this screen.
4.) Click on "Create a Wallet."
5.) Follow the prompts, watch the "Secure Your Wallet" tutorial, and make sure to WRITE DOWN your seed phrase. Do not send it to yourself through email, physically write it down on 3-4 sheets of paper. Take those papers and put them in very safe places.
** Your seed phrase is the most important phrase you own. This is an all-access pass to your Web3 Wallet. Never give it to ANYONE. **
6.) Now that you have written down your seed phrase and set up your wallet. You will be looking at your MetaMask dashboard. This dashboard allows you to find your wallet address and send/receive ETH and other ETH-based cryptos.
7.) You’re ready!
There are several ways to purchase Ethereum. We will discuss the two easiest ways:
B. Without an exchange
1.) Create a Coinbase account onhttps://www.coinbase.com.It's not a long process and is the easiest way to purchase cryptocurrency.
2.) After signing up, you will be transferred to their dashboard. On the left-hand side of the dashboard, there is a button labeled "Trade". Click on it.
3.) You will now be on a page that looks similar to the one below. Click "Buy" on the right-hand side of the crypto you wish to purchase. A window will pop up similar to this. Now, in the "Pay With" section, if you purchase ETH with a bank transfer or wire, it will take 3-5 days to be transferable. However, if you purchase it with a debit card, it will be transferable instantly.
4.) Once you have purchased your Ethereum, it will now show up in your balance on Coinbase! Great work, our first job is complete. Now we need to get it over to your MetaMask.
5.) Either on the dashboard or on the "Trade" screen, click on "Send/Receive" in the top right-hand corner. A new window will pop up.
6.) Now go back to your MetaMask wallet, copy your address and paste it into the "To" section of the pop-up. Click continue and then submit on the screen after!
7.) Your ETH will take roughly 5-10minutes to transfer from Coinbase as they use very low gas fees for their transactions. You now have ETH in your MetaMask!
B. Without an exchange
Some of you may not yet have an account on Coinbase (or on another exchange). Therefore, there is another way to purchase Ethereum. Note: You will need a MetaMask wallet already set up, so make sure to follow the steps so make sure to follow the steps as mentioned in "Create MetaMask Wallet”.
We have had many good experiences with ramp.network, because everything can be set up quickly and easily, without much effort.
1.) Go to https://ramp.network/ and click “Buy crypto”
2.) Select the currency you are paying with, and the crypto you want to buy (ETH). Then fill in the amount you want to get in either ETH or your preferred currency. Afterwards, click “proceed”.
Please note: when you check the details you can see how much the transaction costs are and how much you will actually receive. Make sure to fill in the right amount so you won’t come short after paying transaction fees.
3.) Fill in your email address, accept the terms of service and click “proceed” and follow the confirmation steps.
4.) Go to your MetaMask wallet and click on your account name, (in my case it’s called Account 1, but maybe you named it differently). Your wallet address will be copied automatically, so you can paste it in Ramp. Click “Confirm & Proceed” once you copied it in Ramp.
5.) Depending on which country you’re from, you can choose your preferred payment method. Manual bank transfers take up to two business days, while credit card payments only take minutes. Click “Proceed”
6.) Double check your wallet adres and the chosen payment method and click “buy now”. Follow the next steps Ramp gives you, and wait a couple of minutes. On some days processing time takes a bit longer, but you can expect to receive your eth within 20 minutes.
7.) You’re ready! You now have Eth in your metamask wallet and you’re now able to mint / buy NFTs.
1.) The final step on your way to minting an NFT is to connect your wallet to the MentorCalls website. On launch date (price of NFT specified by the project team), ensure you have enough ETH or relevant currency in your wallet for the NFT. Also, remember to account for transaction fees, fees for Ethereum network ranges between US$60 on average and might reach over US$100 during periods of high traffic.
2.) Once you are well funded, head over to the project’s website on launch date. There will be a button on the website to enable you to connect your metamask wallet to the site.
3.) Click “Connect Wallet” to connect your Metamask wallet to the website. Make sure your MetaMask is signed in to the relevant network. If the NFT is transacting on the Ethereum Network. Once you click on “Connect”, you will be greeted with a popup from your MetaMask.
4.) On the Mint page, select the number of NFTs you would like to purchase (limit on how many you can purchase will be specified by the project).
5.) Click “Mint” and proceed with the transactions on the MetaMask prompt. Once connected, you will be able to see that your wallet is connected at the top left hand side of MetaMask.
6.) From there you will be able to mint your very own NFT!
“Gas Fees” are the transaction costs you need to pay on top of the cost of the NFT. You may also be able to edit the gas fee, the higher the gas fee you choose to pay, the higher priority you will be given in being able to get your NFT.
7.) Congratulations! you have minted your very first NFT! Also, check out how to view your NFT in your wallet here.
You will need to have a web3 wallet with Ethereum funds (iMetamask). You will connect your wallet to our official website and mint the NFT token on launch date.
