How to get Ethereum (ETH) into your Metamask wallet
The first part of your NFT experience is that you will need to get your wallet setup to be able to interact with OpenSea (the platform to purchase the NFT)
Choose the browser you are using and download the extension.
This is an example from the extension page for chrome
The recommendation is to pin the extension you are using to the browser for easy access
Press the big blue button “Get Started” and you’ll be brought below
Red Arrow- if you already have a crypto wallet you can input your secret recovery phrase and utilize MetaMask for your wallet
If you have no idea what that means go to the Green Arrow
Green Arrow- create a new wallet
Read through the text and if you agree hit the blue button to move on
Create a new password (remember longer PW’s are safer than shorter ones… as long as you can remember it that is).
Do not store this password onto your phone or computer! Input the PW, agree to terms & press Create
Read the little text above this and engrain this thought please, it may save you from being hacked one day
If this is your first time in Crypto be sure to watch the video
Attention!! This next step is critical
This is going to be the most important piece of information in your Crypto journey. Write these down and store them in an ultra secure location. If you lose these phrases, give your phrases to anyone, get your phrases hacked- your entire account can be wiped out or inaccessible.
Think of this as giving away your SSN and all of your personal identity info (name, birthday, address, phone number, passwords)… It’s just something you don’t do.
If I scared you just now… Good! Now keep those phrases in a safe place & NEVER on an electronic device.
Press next once you have these written down.
You’ll now need to reenter your secret backup phrase for verification that you actually know what the phrase is. Press confirm after you successfully filled in 100% of the words.
WHOOO!!! CONGRATS You Now Have Your Metamask Wallet setup
This is what your home page of your wallet looks like. (Remember you can access this wallet through the pinned extensions on your browser)
The green arrows- are your public wallet address (this is recorded on the blockchain) and this is what you can share with people. You can see this as kind of like your mailing address. Without this address people will not be able to send you any funds.
Again reminder if the first one wasn’t enough- NO SHARING OF PRIVATE KEYS OR RECOVERY SEED PHRASES. AN ADMIN OF WOLF DEN WILL NEVER ASK YOU FOR THIS. DON’T BE FOOLED!
The next step is to onboard your fiat to buy Ethereum which will be the currency used to be the NFT
Onboarding Your Fiat To Trade For Ethereum
If you use the referral link above both of us will receive a signup bonus and you will be able to onboard fiat through the platform as well as transfer between Coinbase & Coinbase Pro seamlessly.
There are other platforms you can use but Coinbase generally has a very fast turn around time for verification as well as makes transactions/transfers very easy.
It will take you 6 days for the funds from your bank to clear with Coinbase (ACH deposit). You can also perform a wire transfer which generally is faster if you are in a rush.
less user friendly but has significantly less fees to trade with
We will use Coinbase 1st for this Walkthrough
- After you have signed up, click on the trade tab from the home screen.
- Make sure that the tab is selected on “Buy”
- Change the dropdown tab to Ethereum (green line). Make sure that you do not select “Ethereum Classic” this is a different asset.
- Double check that you have the correct asset and then select your bank under the “Pay With” tab (it may already be preselected)
- Confirm the transaction and once it is through you will be the proud owner of some Ethereum.
Remember you will need to purchase enough Ethereum for the NFT as well as Ethereum for gas fees to be used on the OpenSea platform. Reference the article linked if you want to learn more about gas.
As a safety measure you should buy at least $200–300 of Ethereum extra to account for transaction fees required by the network to execute your transactions.
The above statement is really important that many will unfortunately overlook and will not be able to purchase the NFT because of it so I will repeat.
As a safety measure you should buy at least $200–300 of Ethereum extra to account for transaction fees required by the network to execute your transactions
Once the transaction goes through you can see your ETH in your “Assets” tab
If you would like to skip to the next section (control find this next phrase)
“Transfer Ethereum To Your MetaMask”
How To Use CoinBase Pro
After you’ve created your account and gone through the verification portion this will be your home screen. Navigate to the “Portfolios” tab. Then “Deposit.” You will first need to fund your account.
- ACH deposit- you will be able to instantly buy your assets but you will not be able to withdraw the Ethereum until 6 days when the funds clear from your bank
- Wire Transfer-1 day clearance for your funds so you will be able to buy and transfer your assets faster. $10 charge to do so
- Transfer from Coinbase- This is why I also recommended opening a Coinbase account first as you will be able to freely transfer your assets back and forth at no charge between platforms.
After you have funded your account.
Click On Trade Tab
If you are not an experienced trader the easiest way to navigate this system is to perform a “Market” order. This essentially allows you to buy the asset (Ethereum) at the current price it is trading for.
Notice how I changed the value to 2000 USD which would incur a $10 fee as well as get me 0.49510863 ETH.
The current price of 1 ETH being $4018 at this writing. (Shown at the top of screen)
Once you have input the amount in USD that you want to buy press “Place Buy Order” & your transaction to buy will go through.
If you are more familiar with how to utilize limit buys then you can reference the ETH chart and determine the price that you would like to buy the asset at. (this will not be covered in this walk through).
Once you have purchased your ETH it will show up in your “Portfolio” tab.
Transfer Ethereum To Your MetaMask
Go To Your Metamask wallet and you can click on the address underneath “Account 1” & it should copy a long string of numbers and letters. This is the wallet address you will need to use to bring back to CoinBase.
On Coinbase you will need to press “Send/Receive” make sure that the tab is set to “Send”
The Red Line is where you will paste the long string of numbers and letters into the “To” section. Verify at least that the first and last 4 digits match up exactly with your MetaMask wallet address.
Change the “Pay with” to Ethereum. Then press “Continue”
Verify that the details are correct then press “Send Now” & wait for the funds to send to your Metamask. (This maybe as quick as a couple of minutes or as long as a couple of hours).
CoinBase Pro Withdrawal
Make sure you are on your “Portfolio Tab”
Click on “Withdraw” then enter in ETH & choose the Ether (ETH) asset. This should be the only one where you have a balance with anyways.
Click on “Crypto Address”
Enter in the copied MetaMask address into the “To” line & double check that at least the first and last 4 digits match up exactly.
Enter in the amount of ETH you would like to transfer over you may need to play with this section as Coinbase & Coinbase Pro do charge a network fee for the transaction & so sometimes may not allow you to take the entire max amount.
After you are all set press “Withdrawal” & wait for the ETH to get into your Metamask account.
Once You Have Your ETH Head Over To Navigate OpenSea
https://opensea.io/Be sure the website is the one linked above if you are not using the direct link. This is the biggest NFT platform on Ethereum and so may have some copy cat sites.
Step 03 – Complete Checkout
- Press “Confirm Checkout” when ready
- This is the final transaction page. Notice the top line says “Estimated gas fee” of .031506 ETH ($122.49). This is the fee paid for processing your transaction.You will need to make sure you have at least that amount of ETH to cover the gas or else your transaction will not go through.
The total amount (the second line) will be the NFT price (which stays fixed) + the gas fee (which can be variable)
Here are some examples taken about 10 minutes apart to purchase the same NFT
You will notice that the gas fee is different each time which then changes the Total amount. The gas fee will vary through the day based on usage. The higher the amount of usage of the Ethereum network the higher the prices of gas will be.
- When you are ready press “Confirm” and your transaction will process.
- If you are successful there should be a popup that you will see that confirmed the purchase.If you miss it you can always click on the “Activity” tab in your MetaMask and check to see if the transaction “Confirmed,” “Failed,” or is still “Pending”
If your transaction shows as failed your gas fee will be taken and you will have to redo the transaction.
This generally occurs if there is a high amount of congestion in the network
If your transaction is successful you can view your NFT collection by clicking on the circle in the top R hand corner then pressing “Profile”
This will bring you to your NFT collection page.
Sometimes there may be some lag between purchase and the population of the NFT so give it some time.
