Your first NFT: The gateway to blockchain utility

Are you ready to dip your toes into the wild world of NFTs? With just 10 ada in your Cardano wallet, you too can join the NFT craze and own a piece of blockchain history.

But first, you need to set up your Cardano wallet. If you don’t have one yet, don’t worry, it’s as easy as pie. And if you need to learn how to bake pie, start here.

In this post, we’ll highlight the user experience in GeroWallet, but you can use any wallet you want.

Ready, Set, NFT!

If you already have a Cardano wallet and are NFT-less, it’s time to change that. With just a few ada, you can buy your very first NFT. Sure, it might not be valuable, and it might not be the Mona Lisa, but it’s yours, and that’s what counts. Plus, once you have the hang of it, you’ll be ready to jump on that NFT bandwagon when a truly unique and interesting one comes along.

To get started, you first need to set the collateral in your wallet. This is a one-time-only step that you need to interact with smart contracts (aka DApps). In GeroWallet, click the Account button and then Collateral and follow the prompts.
