If you're a beginner looking to buy NFTs, the process can be daunting if you're not sure where to start. This guide will take you through the easiest steps to buying your first AKINGS card - digital wearables with earning opportunities similar to Play to Earn initiatives. Here’s how you can be part of the Wear to Earn movement.
1. Create a Digital Wallet
Get started by downloading and installing your first digital wallet. MetaMask is the most popular option for buying and storing NFTs. It’s available as a browser extension or an app for Apple and Android devices. Visit their official website https://metamask.io/. Follow the instructions for download and you’re done with step one.
2. Setup your MetaMask Account
If you’re completely new to the crypto space, choose “Create a Wallet” to set up an account. The “Import Wallet” option is for those who have existing accounts in a different digital wallet that they want to move to MetaMask. Make sure to store your seed phrase in a safe place! These are your keys into your wallet in case you forget your password. Anyone who knows your seed phrase has full access to your wallet.
3. Buy Crypto
You will need Ethereum (ETH) to purchase NFTs on MetaMask. You can purchase crypto from exchanges like Binance, Coinbase, Kraken, eToro, or Paypal. You can also buy crypto via Credit Card in MetaMask by clicking “Buy” in the MetaMask extension. You can use one of their many providers. Send the cryptocurrency over to your MetaMask wallet - making sure to protect and secure your personal data. Note that most NFTs can be purchased with ETH but always double-check with your chosen marketplace - some might require a different currency.
4. Purchase your First NFT
The AKINGS NFT collection will be minting through our official website (TBA) soon. Much like online shopping, you can browse through our 1 of 1 fashion cards. If you see a token you like, click on the “Buy with MetaMask” button. Consider adding an extra 0.05-0.06 ETH to your wallet for gas fees. The gas fees may vary depending on the traffic and demand of the NFT. These aretransaction fees paid to miners in the blockchain network.

AKINGS is a New York-Based Streetwear brand that has been around since 2017, the label can be seen on major celebs such as Dwight Howard, Kyle Kuzma, Lil Baby, Steve Aoki, Tyga & Trippie Redd.
