How To Create Your Own NFTs

Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are unique works of art, photographs, or any digital content that has no duplicate copy and can be traded online using cryptocurrency. NFTs are booming lately. They use cryptographic tokens to provide ownership on your digital assets and it is one of the use cases of blockchain technology. If you are new to NFTs, I highly recommend reading this article before you create your own NFTs What are NFTs and Why (or Why Not) You Should Get Involved.

Now, you've decided you want to create and sell your own NFTs, let's do it here. 

What is needed to create your NFTs on a Marketplace?

NFTs are mostly created on a public website or app and then they are listed for sale. The process of creating NFTs is also known as minting NFTs. Once NFTs are listed for sale, people can buy NFTs. Once the sale is confirmed, the NFTs move from the seller's account to the buyer's account. One more thing. NFTs transactions are done in cryptocurrencies only. That means you can only buy and sell NFTs using cryptocurrency that an NFTs is minted on. For example, if an NFT is minted on a marketplace that uses Ethereum blockchain, you can buy and sell NFTs on ETH only. 

Before you create and sell your NFTs, you will need the following:

  • A crypto wallet - You will need a crypto wallet with balance on it. When you create an NFTs, you need to pay a fee (small or large depending on the blockchain).
  • NFT Marketplace - A website or all where you want to create your NFT and list it for sale.
  • NFT item/collectibles - Your own unique digital work that you want to sell.

Additionally, you need to have some knowledge of cryptocurrencies. You can create and mint your NFTs in any of the marketplaces. There are several marketplaces available. However, in this article, I will take an example of the Stratis NFT marketplace and demonstrate how you can mint your own NFT in this marketplace.

Stratisphere

Stratis group launched the world's first zero-fee NFT marketplace stratisphere.com at the mid in January 2022. This platform enables low minting and exchange fees that benefit its user to save 99% cost during the transactions compared to Ethereum. This Stratisphere platform provides a secure NFT market to discover, collect and sell your NFTs. Furthermore, this group has strong community support.

In this article, I will illustrate how to create a new asset in the Stratisphere NFT marketplace. In a simple term, how to create your first NFT.

Prerequisites

It is recommended to use a mobile wallet to speed up your minting process which you can download from the app store as well. In this article, I will use a mobile wallet, however, a desktop wallet is also available.
