How to Create NFT Poetry and Art
When I initially conceived of Seed Poems as non-fungible tokenized art poetry, I grossly overestimated the time and work required to mint NFTs. frantically googling “how to sell NFT art” yielded no straightforward article explaining how, as if the search engines weren’t pleased by my frantic typing! What I hope to do here is to lay out the technical components of creating an NFT in the way that I wish they could have been spelled out for me.
A short note: there’s an unsavory side to creating NFT art/poems that I learnt the hard way and would like you to discover now: To put your NFTs for sale, you must pay money (technically, Ethereum). Smart contracts (the fantastic means of trade for NFTs) are not free. Yes, paying to sell anything is inconvenient since it smells of an MLM scheme-but in this case, we get to list as many NFTs as we want in a searchable, easy-to-use interface. Plus, it eliminates the need for us to learn programming in order to sell our work!
The good news is that I’ve discovered a method to list all of the NFTs I’ll ever need for under $100. The bad news is that before that, I made a costly error and wasted numerous hours that could have been spent creating more poems. Let’s hope that saving you time and money results in stunning and intriguing NFTs that make these minor inconveniences worthwhile.
Step 1: Create a MetaMask Wallet
If you’re new to crypto, a wallet is exactly what it sounds like: a digital version of the wallet you keep in your pocket or handbag. This will help you to establish the smart contracts required for NFTs as well as a way to receive payment when your amazing new artwork is acquired.
To sell, you’ll need to fill your wallet with Ethereum — the quantity depends on the current price (as well as gas fees and how long you’re prepared to wait), but I loaded my account with roughly $100 worth.
Step 2: Sign up for an OpenSea account.
This stage is simple: simply click the link above and fill out the different profile options. Link your MetaMask wallet to your OpenSea profile as well.
Step 3: Create an NFT
It’s conceivable that you’ve already made the artwork or poetry you want to sell, which will make this phase go by much more quickly! Though it is not absolutely essential, I recommend visiting OpenSea before opting to build your NFT in order to have a better concept of how your listing could look after it is done. Take a moment to think about your favorite NFTs that motivate you! Note: You may be prompted to sign with your MetaMask wallet at various times throughout your OpenSea experience, so be sure you can do so.
The fundamental method begins with clicking “create” on the OpenSea homepage once you’ve created your NFT masterpiece and scoped over the site. Simply upload your NFT and then select from a list of choices. In the “properties” area, you may include unlocks material like my Seed Poem collection and characteristics you wish to promote. Make sure to provide a captivating description!
After you’ve finished filling out the listing’s details, double-check it before clicking Create. The NFT will be visible, but you must complete the last step to be able to sell it.
Step 4: Offer your NFT for sale.
You’ve completed a lot at this point — you’ve generated your artwork/poem and then jumped through the hoops to mint your non-fungible token. You must click the “Sell” option when viewing your NFT (and signed in to both MetaMask and OpenSea).
After that, we must pay. “If you’ve never sold on OpenSea before, you’ll need to pay a gas cost before you can sell,” according to OpenSea’s blog. Due to Ethereum network congestion, this transaction, which basically establishes a personal trading smart contract for your wallet, is now pricey, but you only have to perform it once. If you decide to list the items in a currency that isn’t ETH, you’ll also be asked to approve that token for trading which incurs another (much smaller) gas fee. Again, this is a one-time fee so the second time around you won’t have to pay a cent.”
I wish I could tell you how much it will cost to sell your NFTs, but the unpredictable variations in gas prices and Ethereum mean I’d have to be a crypto-psychic to do so (and if I was I may put that power to use in a slightly different way :D ). In order to accomplish it as inexpensively as possible, I changed MetaMask’s proposed gas cost to the lowest amount it would accept — and then I waited. The transaction went through after a week’s break in checks, and now I can sell any NFTs on OpenSea through my profile, as well as having other collections — right now I have my Seed Poems as well as a more general NFT Poetry collection.
If you didn’t make as many budget-busting mistakes along the way — I’m looking at you, lone NFT I paid over $100 to put on Rarible — and you just want to sell your NFTs as soon as possible, it could be better to just suck it up and pay the higher gas expenses. I’m not sure, but I believe it would have cost roughly 2.5 times as much if I had done it all a few months ago. In any event, even if you don’t go about it like Scrooge/me, looking at the gas prices ahead of time might help you pay a little less.
Congratulations on listing your first NFT; I’m looking forward to seeing it, especially if it’s poetry! I guarantee that minting your next NFT, and the hundreds of NFTs you make on your way to being the next Beeple, will take a lot less time!
