How Will NFT Minting Operate In 2022?

Minting NFTs will be simpler than ever in 2022. Naturally, if you’re asking, “What is minting NFTS?” A step-by-step manual is a wonderful place to start if you’re new to non-fungible tokens and this is your first foray into the field. Additionally, it depends on how you define NFT minting. Which NFT minting entity are you referring to—the developer or the collector? Those are two entirely distinct processes. So let’s go in and examine NFT minting in 2022 from all perspectives.


NFT Minting: What Is It?

Why does it matter if you are a developer or a collector? What is the purpose of minting NFTs? Since most of our readers are likely on this side of the questions, let’s start with collectors. In essence, NFT minting essentially means purchasing an NFT from a public or private transaction. This may occur in a number of ways. You might be creating an NFT utilising a marketplace like Entrepot, which was the first and is currently the primary NFT marketplace on the Internet. Additionally, you can buy NFTs from a third-party website. We’ll talk about How To Create An NFT Minting Website.

If you are a developer minting NFTs, then minting has a whole different connotation because you are the one who is constructing the project. Either you self-mint the mint or you prepare the back end of the mint yourself. In either case, you have the same option of developing the front end and minting through your own website or letting collectors mint their NFT through a marketplace. More and more tools are becoming accessible to aid web developers on the Internet Computer.


How Can You Profit From Selling Your NFT?

Remember that building an NFT project and minting an NFT are essentially two different things. Before we return to how collectors might mint the NFTs you are creating, we’ll just briefly go over your alternatives for producing and selling NFTs.

Working with an established market is your greatest option as a development team, at least while the Internet Computer is still in its early stages.

Building community trust is important if you decide to go your own way and let collectors mint their items directly from your website. After all, the majority of NFT frauds involve connecting a wallet to a third-party website. It is still possible to launch successfully, but you must first create a sizable community. 


How Can I Create My First NFT?

We’ve finally reached the important part of the article for novice collectors. This is essentially a manual for minting NFTs using the Entrepot marketplace. Additionally, only in terms of nomenclature, it differs slightly from the procedure we initially explained.


Step 1: Setting Up a Crypto Wallet

Obtaining a Stoic or Plug wallet is required in order to mint NFTs on the Internet Computer. Even though there are a few wallets that are currently on the market and several that are in development, most new projects combine Stoic and Plug. Always ask the project you wish to mint if they are restricted to a certain wallet. In order to guarantee access to every NFT project on the Internet Computer, it is a good idea to have both Stoic and Plug wallets.


Step 2: Fund Your Wallet

ICP must now be purchased and sent to the wallet. ICP cannot be purchased straight from the wallet. You must first obtain the ICP from an exchange. Since most crypto investors are familiar with Coinbase and they have ICP available for purchase/trade, I’ll use them as an example. ICP can be bought using fiat money. You can also trade and other cryptocurrency, but if you do that, you should be aware that trading that cryptocurrency for the ICP will result in a gain or loss for tax purposes. You must transfer ICP to your Stoic or Plug wallet as soon as it is available on the exchange.

Make sure to copy your address if you’re using Stoic. The word address is underlined in green, and a straightforward copy button is located next to it. To find your address if you’re using Plug, you’ll need to look around a bit. Click the deposit button on the main account screen. It will state “From Exchange, DFX, or Account ID” at the bottom. Your wallet’s address, or Account ID, will be sent to you as a result.


Step 3: Go to the LAUNCHPAD tab on Entrepot

Here is where we depart a little from our earlier manual. NFT SALES was replaced by LAUNCHPAD in the minting tab by Entrepot (which is a pretty cool change if you ask me). All of the currently ongoing fresh launches are displayed on the LAUNCHPAD tab (although sometimes they hang around on this page for a day or two after selling out). Select the project you want to start by clicking on it.

Also keep in mind that you must link your wallet to the Entrepot website in order to make a purchase. You can connect your wallet with confidence as this is thought to be secure considering that thousands of users use the site every day.


Step 4. Click “BUY”

You will at the very least be given the choice to purchase 1 NFT. However, there are occasionally purchases made in bulk. Bulk purchases could result in lower prices, or they could just be a way for you to obtain extra NFTs from the mint in the event that the project sells out quickly. The quantity of NFTs on hand, the selling price, and the number of NFTs from the collection that have already been sold are all displayed. Please be aware that if a project is particularly in demand, the number of available/sold units can increase significantly within the first few seconds (or if someone is using a bot to buy as many as possible – we strongly discourage this practise for the sake of fairness).


Step 5: Confirm the transaction

Your wallet will ask you to confirm the transaction when you click BUY. You won’t transmit your ICP or get the NFT if you don’t confirm the transaction. You will receive the NFTs and the ICP if you confirm the transaction (assuming the project did not sell out before the process could be completed).


Minting an NFT on a Website of a Third Party

What if the NFT you want to mint can’t be created on Entrepot and must be created on a different website? Of course, ICPSquad is the ideal illustration that first comes to mind. The avatars for Season 0 are created on our own website. This is crucial to the project since ICPSquad runs a full dashboard that also enables you to design your avatar, see your materials and accessories, equip accessories, and mint items by using ICP and burning materials. Even though not all the features are yet available, our website is the ideal option to demonstrate how to mint on a third-party website because we are confident it is completely secure.


Step 1: Connect your wallet 

The dangerous aspect of third-party websites is this. Similar to connecting to a reliable marketplace, you will need to connect your wallet. Never link your wallet to a website you are unsure of. Another option is to make a separate wallet that you would only use in this situation. Don’t forget to include the.0001 ICP transfer charge while funding the wallet with just enough for minting. After buying the NFT, you can send it to your primary wallet. Your other NFTs and ICP are safe because they are stored in a separate wallet that is not linked to the website.


Step 2: Press the mint button

There needs to be a button on the website that lets you mint your NFT. The price, the number of units available, the number sold, and other statistics ought to be included as well. Keep in mind that you must click JOIN before you mint on the ICPSquad website. We will be able to get some of the data we require for our engage-to-earn game, which will be published later this year, through this. As of this writing, 5,244 users have signed up, linked their wallets to the website, and created NFTs.


Step 3: Verify the transaction

As you can see, the only distinction between minting on Entrepot and visiting a third-party website is in the middle step. After hitting the mint button, the purchase must still be confirmed. Prior to completing the purchase, double check that the pricing in ICP is accurate. The NFTs ought to be in your wallet in a matter of seconds at this time. To see the NFTs in your wallet, keep in mind that you might need to manually add the canister. When minting on Entrepot or another marketplace, this may also occur.

Using an Internet computer to mint NFTs in 2022

Just a few general reminders for anyone entering the NFT realm for the first time as I draw to a close. Never put more money into any form of investment than you can afford to lose. Despite my own optimism for NFTs, particularly in the Internet Computer, this is a very volatile market. NFTs (and crypto in general) may not be for you if stock market volatility gives you the willies.

If you have the courage to go on the rollercoaster, you might encounter a group of individuals with whom you truly connect and end up having a great time. Therefore, minting NFTs can involve more than just jumping on the bandwagon and making a quick buck.
