How to purchase the NFTs
We are in early days of NFTs and the most common way to buy them on the Ethereum network is not only expensive with gas fees but is extremely energy inefficient, so I have navigated a much more environmentally clean and less expensive way to buy them.
This is through the Metamask wallet.
1) Install Metamask Wallet by clicking download here.
Once Metamask wallet is installed it will need to be configured and loaded with the environmentally-friendly currency (Wrapped Eth) on the Polygon blockchain in order to make purchase. To configure, follow this step- https://docs.polygon.technology/docs/develop/metamask/config-polygon-on-metamask/
2) To load up your wallet:
a) In Metamask, make sure the dropdown at the top shows ‘Ethereum Mainnet’
b) Click ‘Buy’
c) Scroll down to 2nd Option – Transak
The default options will show:
d) Enter Amount in GBP, select Card Payment and then click next to ETH here:
e) In the search function, enter WETH and the below will show. Select.
Now these elements should look like this:
f) Hit ‘Buy Now’.
In a matter of minutes you will receive email notification of arrival of funds. Once this arrives, everything will be ready to purchase.
3) Now go back to the Opensea Ambigraph NFT you want to buy and select ‘Buy Now’.
4) This will take you to ‘This is an unreviewed collection’. Click on the ‘understand’ checkbox.
5) Click to agree Opensea terms of service.
6) Click on ‘Confirm Checkout’.
7) This will take you to Complete Checkout in Opensea, hit ‘Sign’.
8) This will take you to the Signature Request in Metamask, Click ‘Sign’.
You will now have purchased your NFT! Thank you for taking the time to work through this process and minimise the energy used in purchasing this artwork. In the NFT you can now access unlockable content.
