Understanding the NFT Market

The Non-Fungible Token (NFT) is a digital asset that has attracted the investment interest of the “digital community” in terms of cryptocurrencies. NFT is used as proof of ownership of goods that can be purchased with cryptocurrencies. Items that can be purchased include a variety of media, ranging from artwork, video clips, music, and so on. In addition, NFT also generally appears in digital formats, such as the Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG), Portable Network Graphics (PNG), Graphics Interchange Format (GIF), and others.

Once you have NFT, it means you already own certain digital assets. You can start selling NFT by printing one of your digital assets as NFT. You can print any digital creation as NFT, from art to writing to music to video games. It is very easy to convert a document to NFT. Basically you just need to follow a few simple steps. Keep in mind that the final selling price of your work will depend on subjective factors such as your creativity, quality, and reputation among potential customers. And for the last thing, you need to focus on NFT marketplace development.

What are these simple steps?

You need to select the market first. Think of this marketplace as the Amazon of the NFT world, the online repository of digital masterpieces that can be bought or sold. There are dozens of markets, and many of them specialize in certain types of digital assets. OpenSea currently offers the largest and most diverse NFT marketplace. Once you’ve selected the market you want to use, link the funded cryptocurrency wallet, select the “Mint an NFT” option, and upload your digital document.

The process for each market will be slightly different, but most of them allow you to print NFT in just a few clicks. Also note that if you are interested in passively monetizing your work over time through royalties (the percentage of each subsequent sale of your NFT on the secondary market paid to you), you will usually set the amount of that royalty during the printing process.

List your NFT for sale

Once you have printed the NFT, you will be given the option to list it for sale on the market. Note that while you can transfer and sell your NFT in other markets, you may incur additional fees. Click the “Sell” button, and follow the prompts.

In an NFT marketplace, you will be able to provide some details about the transaction such as the auction price or deadline and the cryptocurrencies that NFT buyers can use to pay you. The market will calculate the cost of any gas at this point, which is the cost of the Ethereum blockchain network for recording transactions. The cost of this gas varies depending on how busy the blockchain network is at the moment. The marketplace itself will also list its fees for handling the sale, usually a percentage of the final NFT sale price.

Manage your list

Once you complete the listing, your NFT is available for purchase in the market. Now you need to promote sales to potential customers through your website or social media. You can also manage NFT listings, but remember that any changes to or deletions of listings may incur additional fees, and gas fees that you have paid are non-refundable.
