Adding Your Work to OpenSea
OpenSea is one of, if not the largest marketplaces for Non-fungible Tokens. It’s also
one of the easiest places to set up and sell your work on. Here’s the steps for creating
an account and setting up your first NFT collection on OpenSea.
Before you can add your work, you need three things
1. Ether (ETH) - the currency you need to mint your NFT and pay the associated
feets.
2. Crypto Wallet what stores your ETH and processes the transactions on the
Ethereum blockchain.
3. OpenSea.io account.
Let’s walk through the steps.
Step 1: Setting up your wallet
