The Rise in Digital Drops * The Nob Hill Gazette

OMG the NHG NFT

The Gazette has minted our very own digital drop! Mainly because we, too, wanted to know what exactly NFTs were and how we could get involved. Here’s how we did it: Step 1: Create an artistic concept. We liked the idea of developing a character, and what better than the very S.F. smug seals — or sea lions, to be exact — that hang around Fisherman’s Wharf? Artist Olivia Wise came up with four ideas for our character, each with an animated element, since NFTs are able to contain motion and sound. Scan the QR code to the right to see them in action. Step 2: Decide where to try to sell your digital asset. We’ve been hearing a lot about green blockchains, so we are giving that a go and dropping on objkt.com. Other green options are versum. xyz and teia.art. Explore them and see what interface you like the most. Step 3: Get crypto. But how? Set up a wallet with the cryptocurrency accepted on your NFT platform of choice (objkt takes Tez, and Zai Divecha gifted us 2 Tez to get us started — in line with a new tradition of paying it forward to a fellow artist). With an account, a wallet and a browser extension to link the wallet to our NFT account, we were set. If we’ve lost you, don’t worry, the platforms will walk you through the process. (See the NFT)
