Pick your work- The first thing to do is to pick the work you’re creating for NFT. You can make a non-fungible token of a drawing, a tweet, a piece of music, a YouTube video, etc. Copies of these digital files can be copied and shared. Your work will get a unique identity through a process called minting.

Get some Ethereum tokens- Next thing to do is to get the ETH token (ether). Although you can make use of NFTs on other blockchains such as Cardano, Tezos, etc. You’ll need to mint an NFT, therefore, you’ll need an ETH wallet such as ‘MetaMask’. Be aware that the minting process could cost money (you’ll need at least $100 worth of Ether).

Choose a marketplace- Once you’ve created a unique identity for your digital file through mining, the next is to get a marketplace. This is where you will physically create and then list your NFT. Prestmit is one of the platforms in Nigeria where you can trade NFTs.
