How do I buy NFTs?
Step 1 – Get a Wallet!
Solana (SOL) is the cryptocurrency used for purchases on Phloxx.net and places like Magic Eden. To keep your SOL safe, you’ll need a crypto wallet—we recommend using one called Phantom. Just head to Phantom’s site at: https://phantom.app/, install the web browser extension and create an account.
Step 2 – Buy some Solana!
To fund your wallet, you’ll need to purchase SOL tokens. The easiest way is with a credit card on FTX Pay, this is a service that’s already part of your new Phantom wallet. Open your wallet, tap “Deposit SOL”, and select “Deposit from FTX”. A new window will open where you can create an FTX account and purchase SOL.
Step 3 – Connect your wallet to the site!
To connect your wallet, tap “Connect Wallet” here on the site. Select the Phantom option, and your wallet will connect. After that, you can start bidding on NFTs.
So, I am going to mint an NFT at random, I don’t want one of those plain ones!
Don’t worry, whilst we are showing all these images on the side for completeness and ALL these images will be available for purchase, the images from the candy machines will be vetted and quality assured so you only get a quality high-resolution image that we are proud of. Very few people want to pay money for 1,048,576 blue pixels and we understand that!
How will you decide which photos make the grade?
Well, that is between the Phloxx team and the artist in question. Nevertheless, the images which have minimal detail or minimal actual content will NOT be included. Out of the 65,535 images generated in the batch sets, we aim to release circa 30,000 to 40,000 images.
…But I want to complete my collection, can I buy the ones not in the candy machine?
Yes, as we have said, we will be minting the remaining images and putting them on our phloxx.net site, or, if you come to us directly we can help you complete your collection.
…But doesn’t that go against the ethos of NFT sales?
Not really, we will be releasing large batches of NFT’s which are the highest quality generated images. As we have said not all the images “make the cut” and we wouldn’t want to sell those for the same price as the other images (it wouldn’t be right). Nevertheless, we understand that some people may want to complete a particular collection – As such we are offering a way for them to do so at minimal cost to them.
