If you’re totally new to NFTs, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered in this blog post: Augmented Reality NFTs are as Easy as Drag & Drop

Below, we’ll take you through how to mint your WebAR project in just four easy steps. Let’s get started!

Step One: Choose your Project 

The journey begins! Choose from the dropdown menu which project you’d like to transform into an NFT. 

For published projects: 

  1. Click “unpublish”
  2. Then click “publish” (to republish)
  3. A screen will pop up asking if you want to transform your WebAR project into an NFT

For unpublished projects:

  1. When you’re ready to publish it, click “publish”
  2. A screen will pop up asking if you want to transform your WebAR project into an NFT

The next step is to connect your Ethereum wallet!

Step Two: Connect your Ethereum Wallet 

If your wallet is already setup:

If you already have your wallet setup, have your password handy. Enter your password, then skip ahead to step three!

If you’re setting up a wallet for the first time:

See below to learn about what wallets are, how they’re used, and how to set up your very own Ethereum Wallet (it’s easy!):

What is an Ethereum wallet and password?

A wallet password is used to confirm outgoing transactions. You need ETH (ethereum) in order to submit any transaction on the Ethereum blockchain to mint your NFT. A wallet is where you hold your ETH and how you submit transactions/create/buy/sell items on Mintable. 

Our partners at Mintable recommend the MetaMask wallet.  

How to setup a MetaMask Wallet:

Get MetaMask at their official website: https://metamask.io 

Wallets are ultra secure – we can’t do anything without your permission. You have to manually approve or deny every transaction to make sure you agree. But don’t worry, it’s easy:)

What is a security phase and why do we give you one?

A mnemonic phrase, mnemonic seed, or seed phrase is a group of words that allow access to a cryptocurrency wallet. Other names for this include “recovery phrase” and “backup phrase.”

Wallet software will typically generate a seed phrase and instruct the user to store it securely. 

Retrieve your security phase to complete this next step. 

If you’ve used MetaMask for your wallet, it uses BIP39 to generate a seed phrase for your wallet. Your seed phrase will cover every token, address, and transaction generated by your wallet. Think of it as your backup master key. Backing up your seed phrase ensures you will always have access to your funds.

If you did not write it down or lost it, you can log into MetaMask and Reveal your Seed Phrase / Secret Recovery Phrase.

There’s also a unique password we’ll generate for you for extra security. Don’t forget to copy it down and store it in a safe place! 

Now that you’re all set up. Let’s get started! 

Step Three: Add Details 

Once your wallet is connected, you’ll be prompted to add details to your project. 

Your NFT will be auctioned on the Mintable marketplace. Adding additional details to your WebAR NFT will offer more visibility, and enable followers to find your pieces easier too. 

NFT artists and buyers are a very close-knit community. If this is your first time minting artwork, check out some of the artists on Mintable to see what has done well, how artists are telling their stories, what’s trending, and how to position your unique art piece. 

Buyers love to know what your NFT is about. Why should they buy it? What makes the price fair? Think about the story of your piece, how it compares to what’s out there, and what price point will make your AR NFT competitive. 

With a simple QR code, potential buyers can even interact with your AR NFT before they buy it! This is great for getting the word out there and encourages sharing on social media. 

Don’t worry, you’ll be able to double-check how your AR NFT will appear before you mint it! 

Step Four: Mint and Share! 

Now, it’s time to mint your very first WebAR NFT! 

Enter your wallet password to register your artwork on the blockchain. 

We do not charge any gas (set up) fees. Upon sale, you will be charged a one-time 2.5% fee via the Mintable marketplace and a .5% Geenee fee.

Finally, congrats! Your newly minted WebAR NFT is ready. Copy your ID and URL or go to your NFT Dashboard to find additional information and NFT stats.
