A Beginner’s Guide to Buying, Selling and Creating NFTs

Non-fungible tokens (NFT) are taking the art world by storm.

A Beginner’s Guide to Buying, Selling and Creating Tokens

Before you can buy an NFT from one of the many NFT marketplaces, you need to do a few things, like setting up and funding a crypto wallet. As soon as you do, you will have almost everything you need to sell and sell your own NFTs.

Section 1: What is an NFT?

A non-fungible token is a cryptocurrency that can only be spent once, without requiring the user to have a bitcoin wallet. These tokens are sometimes called “tokens of the future” because they are essentially a more secure version of an online coupon.

These types of token can be used to pay for goods and services or provide other rewards like free entry to festivals, access to content or membership benefits. NFTs are also used to incentivize users to upload videos to online streaming services or be put on a list of participants for online forums.

Creating a token that people will pay to create and validate requires an agreed-upon set of parameters that the token’s creator must follow.

How to buy, sell and create NFTs

There are a few different ways to acquire NFTs. You can buy them directly from your wallet (you will still be a user on the trading exchange). Or you can put together a “plug-n-play” group buy. A plug-n-play group buy is an online portal through which you can find other members of a crypto trading group and buy NFTs in an easy and organized way. You can also “gift” a group buy to others, and receive another NFT as a token of your appreciation. If you are a group buy member, you can also create a reverse group buy for a non-fungible token through the same portal, which means that you can either receive NFTs as gifts or sell NFTs to other group buy members, and receive cryptocurrency or fiat in return.

The future of NFTs

Blockchain technology is still in its infancy, and for a couple of years now many companies have been trying to develop new and innovative use cases that connect the blockchain with industries that are not traditionally associated with it.

But, the crypto economy itself is in a nascent stage, and crypto-firms are still exploring a lot of business opportunities that the blockchain technology has to offer. It is still uncertain whether crypto-currencies will grow into large industries in the future.

For example, there is currently a budding market of buying and selling crypto-currencies, in exchange for fiat currency. As it stands, most people use crypto-currencies as a hedge against inflation of their fiat currency, and to pay for goods and services.


I’m a newbie in the cryptosphere, so I’ll be focusing on some basic stuff first: how to buy an NFT, how to create and sell your own NFTs, how to buy assets on the (U.S.) stock market, and how to exchange USD into and out of crypto currencies.

This guide isn’t meant to give you crypto trading or trading advice. For that, you should look at various blogs, financial news sites, and educational sites. But if you do decide to go ahead and buy an NFT, please go into it with the understanding that it is a volatile, risky market. Some NFTs have dropped in value from their initial price, whereas others have skyrocketed.
