Several NFT artists have successfully sold their arts, photographs and several unique collections. Recently, an Indian student (Sultan Gustaf Al Ghozali) took pictures of himself every day for five years and jokingly listed his selfies as NFTs.But his jokes turned into a huge fortune for him with a trading volume of more than $1 million on his collections. This indicates that non-fungible tokens are here to stay, at least for the time being. As a result, you might be thinking if it’s time to learn how to create and sell your own NFT on OpenSea. 

1. Fund your digital wallet with Ethereum

After you’ve created your MetaMask wallet (or any other digital wallet), you’ll need to fund it with ETH. If you don’t have any ETH, you’ll need to buy some right now, so click the ‘Buy’ button and choose ‘Buy ETH with Wyre’.

2. Connect your wallet to OpenSea

To create an NFT of your artwork, you’ll need to go to OpenSea and choose a payment wallet, the latter of which you’ll need to use to pay fees and to receive any payments if your NFT is successful.

3. Upload the art you want to turn to NFT

After connecting your wallet for payment, you can proceed to upload the file you want to turn to NFT on OpenSea. On OpenSea, click on create, then a new page will be displayed to create a new item. You can either add an Image, Video, Audio or 3D model. The files supported are JPG, PNG, GIF, SVG, MP4, WEBM, MP3, WAV, OGB, GLB, GLTF, up to 100MB in size. You can also add a name, an external link for users to learn more about your NFT, and a space to enter in the detailed description of your item. If you have created an NFT before, you can choose the collection you want your item to appear. You can also add the number of supplies and choose freeze metadata. This is to ensure that your item is permanently locked and stored on decentralized file storage, allowing your data to be viewed by clients. This will ensure that your item is stored and will never be lost or missing. Kindly check the image below for reference. 

4. List and mint your NFT for auction

You can complete the listing by choosing either a fixed price or a timed auction. You can then input the price and pay the service fee to complete the smart contract.
