How to Make and Sell an NFT (Crypto Art Tutorial)


hey everybody this is Robert from Kapwing and 
this iconic image next to me recently sold for   six hundred thousand dollars at an online auction 
if that comes as a shock then let me be first to   welcome you to the brave new world of nfts and 
crypto art in this tutorial today i'll show   you everything you need to know to get started 
creating your first nft putting it on an online   marketplace and hopefully making some money from 
it let's get started nft stands for non-fungible   token it's an alienesque term that i don't 
like saying aloud but you can think of it as   a digital certificate of authenticity in real life 
classic works of art antiques and other historical   items are often sold at auctions with a receipt 
certifying that they are genuine nfts serve the   same purpose but for digital items they allow 
gifs videos jpegs mp3s and just about any other   file format to be certified as one of a kind this 
technology enables a new kind of ownership for   digital files that wasn't previously possible so 
now that we know a little more about nfts and what   can be an nft let's go step by step through the 
process of creating and listing your first nft for   sale and you won't need any crypto experience to 
do this so there's gonna be four steps today first   we're gonna set up a new crypto wallet this is 
where we'll store the ethereum cryptocurrency that   is used to pay the fees that are associated with 
putting an nft for sale second we're gonna buy a   little bit of the ethereum cryptocurrency you'll 
need this to cover those fees i just mentioned   third you'll connect your new crypto wallet to 
one of the popular nft marketplaces you'll use   your wallet to authenticate everything you do 
to keep us secure and then fourth we'll actually   go through the process of listing your art and 
turning it into an nft okay so we're starting out   here in the ios app store and i'm on the rainbow 
ethereum wallet now there are tons of different   wallets you can use to buy nfts and to store the 
ethereum crypto coin so for this tutorial today   i'm using rainbow because i find this wallet 
to be super simple it's where i got my start   and i'm still using it to this day but i actually 
did a full write-up on how to create your own nft   over on the point website i'll drop a link to 
that down in the description i go over some   other wallets there so if you're not comfortable 
with this one or you want to try something else   there's definitely a lot of options out there 
but we are using rainbow for this tutorial today   so i've got i've already downloaded this app 
so i'm just going to tap open here from the app   store and i'm going to go right into the wallet 
so i just created a new wallet called kapwing   and it's super simple right here inside the app 
um it uses apple pay to cover transactions so   you can just tap any of these buttons 50, 100, 
250 and add ethereum bright into your account   so i would recommend starting with around 100 if 
you are planning to mint and create your own new   nft now i know that sounds like a lot because 
it is but currently there are pretty high   fees associated with making new nfts that's 
something else i go over in that article link in   description but yeah 100 should be enough to get 
you covered uh for your first nft these gas fees   fluctuate all the time but they have been quite 
high lately with a lot of the excitement around   this technology so you'll want to start out by 
buying around a hundred dollars worth of ethereum   now you can just use apple pay to immediately 
cover this and have it sent into your wallet if   you're on android i'm not entirely sure what 
the payment method is but i know there is   a rainbow wallet available for android and the 
standard payment methods you'd use in android   should apply there as well so start here in the 
rainbow wallet and add some ethereum into your   account now that your crypto wallet is all set up 
we are ready to actually link it to one of the nft   marketplaces where you can buy sell and create 
your own nfts so for this demo today i'm going   to show you how to do this on wearable.com this 
is one of the most accessible nfc marketplaces   there's no invite required and it's very easy to 
get started this is where i created my first nft   so we'll head over to wearable.com 
i'll drop a link in the description   and once you're on this main page you'll just 
click this connect button up in the corner   it'll take you to this screen where you have a 
bunch of different wallet connections you'll see   here there's like fortmatic, walletconnect, wallet 
link so these are all different apps that connect   different crypto wallets to their marketplace if 
you're using the rainbow wallet that i suggested   in the first step then we're going to use 
walletconnect but if you're using a different   wallet you may need to further explore 
which one of these options is best for you   so i'll start by clicking wallet connect here and 
it's going to bring up this qr code so i will just   go into my rainbow app and i'll slide over to this 
screen that shows the camera and i'll just go over   that qr code and there it says Rarible wants 
to connect your wallet so i'll just tap connect   and you'll see here right as i tap connect i'm now 
logged in to my Rarible account it's automatically   created an account that's linked to my wallet only 
so from here we can actually move on and start to   buy or create our first nft so for the part we've 
all been waiting for how to actually turn a piece   of content into an nft so i'm here in the Kapwing 
studio editor and i'm on an image that i actually   made for the nft article i recently wrote so this 
is a pretty simple project it's a couple image   layers some text a nice gradient in the background 
uh Kapwing is actually a great option for creating   nfts because it enables you to simply create all 
kinds of content whether it be an image like this   one a gif a video all kinds of content that can 
be turned into nfts can be made in Kapwing so   definitely go check us out link in description as 
well so i have this nft graphic that i made for my   article and i want to download this now and take 
it over to wearable and mint it as my first nft so   my first nft will quite literally be my graphic of 
an nft so i'll click export image here in kapwing   and that takes me to the screen where i can now 
download my content so i'll click download and   now i've got a copy of this image saved to my hard 
drive so we'll switch back over to Rarible now and   once you're signed in you should see this create 
button up here in the corner so i'm going to click   create and now we have a selection to make do 
i want to meant this nft as one of one like   the only version of this image that's available 
on the blockchain that can be bought and sold   or do i want to meet a few copies of it maybe 
it's one of ten maybe it's one of seventy so   for the sake of rarity and you know making this a 
true one of one i'm just gonna select single here   now this next page is very similar to you know the 
upload screens you've seen in other apps it's it's   very familiar it's kind of reminds me of uploading 
a video on youtube so i'll just click here to   upload my file let me find it there it is select 
it and upload it and then it kind of shows you   a thumbnail of it here and then you can start to 
make some other selections you can you know choose   whether or not you want to put it on sale or just 
create it as an nft to keep in your own crypto   wallet so i'm going to put it on sale i can set an 
instant sale price you can kind of think of this   as like a buy now price that you'd see on ebay 
this is the price that uh i'd want for somebody   to immediately be able to purchase it if i don't 
select that then it does just go to a regular   auction where people make bids and i can choose 
to accept them or not and then you could also if   you've created a really rich piece of content do 
this unlock when purchased option and that allows   you to link to maybe like a website or a dropbox 
or something where people can download like a high   quality version of the file or get some other 
you know special extras that come with the nft   maybe like a video of you creating it or you 
know some more background around how it was made   and those are kind of nice little extras to 
bundle in so i don't have any of those to offer   so i'm just gonna go in and it'll ask you 
know put a name put a description so i'll say   nft token and for the description i'll say 
what i imagine an nft looks like then you'll   see down here this royalties selection this is 
actually really cool so you can set a royalty   amount and then anytime this nft is sold in the 
future to someone else you will actually receive   this percentage of a royalty of that sale this is 
one of the things that makes nfts really special   for creators is that they can continue profiting 
off their work well after they've sold it for the   first time something that you know doesn't 
really happen in the traditional art world   so usually you see royalties of around 10 to 
30 percent so i'll set this around 20 percent   and now that i have all of my information 
entered here i'll just click create item and then next it's actually going to send a 
request to my uh rainbow wallet to accept this   transaction so if i go into rainbow here and i 
scroll over you'll see here it is it's got the   um transaction request to go ahead and create this 
nft i haven't bought any ethereum so it says that   my balance is too low and then you can see down 
here at the bottom of the screen you have the   network feed that's going to be associated with 
actually going and you know minting this nft today   so um yeah you'll just complete the transaction 
right here in your wallet and then back on screen   it'll actually uh you know start to do 
the rest of the process of minting it   so once you've actually minted your content and 
paid for all the fees this is what it's going   to look like you'll see it right here on Rarible 
it's got a full transaction history you can view   bids that are placed on it and it's now live 
and you were able to do it in just a few minutes   and that's how you create your first nft 
we started by making a new crypto wallet   next we bought some ethereum and then we linked 
our wallet to an nft marketplace like Rarirble.com   finally we uploaded our content and minted 
it into an nft now there's a lot more that   can be said about crypto art and nfts 
but i'm going to leave it there for now   if you found this video helpful today please 
consider subscribing to our youtube channel   nfts are still in their infancy and i think 
there's a lot more tutorials that we could   do on them in the future so getting your feedback 
and hearing whether or not this stuff is helpful   is great and it helps us out a lot thanks so much 
for watching and we'll see you in the next video
