What is NFT minting?

The NFT minting is actually a term that stands for the process that goes on when a certain platform processes your crypto artwork and lists it for sale.

NFT minting is only possible when you connect your digital wallet to the platform and pay for transaction fees. After that you are eligible for selling your art for crypto.



Price: How much does my NFT art cost?

Most platforms allow artists to determine how they want their art to be sold and bought. There are mainly 2 approaches for selling:

  • Auction
  • Sale Price

I suggest that you put your artwork on auction and decide on your own whether to accept or not investors’ bids.

The average price for NFT artworks is about 3 ETH which in USD is over $5,000. Everything depends on the platform, but most of the time highest bids are between 0.007 ETH and 10.000 ETH.

Getting Paid When Reselled: What’s a Royalty Percentage in NFT art?

The Royalty percentage in NFT art allows you to get paid anytime someone resells your work. It is calculated in percentages and it all depends on you. 

A popular royalty percentage is between 10-30%.

How do NFT platforms make money of artists?

Whoever has the data, has it all.

Each NFT platform works with certain payment methods – certain digital banks, certain wallets that are required in order to connect to their marketplace. All of these platforms want you to choose them as a safe place to store your money. That’s why those platforms are so in right now!

They charge fees and take a portion of your sales, but that’s because they are like your “digital art brokers” and help you get recognized by investors.

FAQ on Creating and Selling NFT art

(Updated 2022)

Can you sell one NFT on multiple platforms?

Can you sell one NFT on multiple platforms?

Not a good idea. Let’s say you want to sell one NFT of a photo that you took. You list your photo first, on Opensea, then, a second copy on Rariable. Even though it’s the same photo, you have different “encoded” versions of it on 2 different values. Technically, it’s not illegal, but it takes away from its uniqueness and makes it harder for you to sell it. A typical NFT buyer wants to buy a collectible.

I created my file - what's next?

How to turn a file into an NFT?

Once you created your digital file of a photo, drawing, video or whatever, you have to save it in one of the following formats: JPG, PNG, GIF, SVG, MP4, WEBM, MP3, WAV, OGG, GLB, GLTF. For Opensea, you have to make sure the file has max size: Around 100 MB. Then, upload it to the platform and congrats – now it’s an NFT.

Can you make more than 1 NFT of the same file?

Can you make more than 1 NFT of the same file?

Yes. But it makes it less unique for sellers.

What's the size for NFTs?

What’s the size for NFTs?

Most platforms don’t have limits for sizes (width and height), only for the maximum size of the file. For Opnesea it’s 100 MB. That can be an image 500×800, 3d model 500×500, video etc.

Can you make an NFT from a photo of a celebrity?

Not a good idea.

You can’t resell other people’s photos, even if they are photos of famous people. Even though celebrities are public figures, most law regulations around the world are prohibiting the use of celebrities’ photos for commercial use. That means it’s illegal to profit from their looks without their consent. So, it’s possible that they will sue you.

    Hi, if you sell NFT art does that mean you cannot sell a physical copy of that same art or even a digital copy on Etsy for instance?

    • Vivi says:

      Hello, Hannah,
      That’s a good question! As far as I know, there are no regulations against selling both a physical & virtual copy of a product.
      At this point, NFT is just an additional way to monetize your content.

      Regards,

    • Vivi says:

      Yes, but also, not a good idea. What makes your NFT art unique is the certificate that you receive by mining the NFT in a platform of your choice. If you have one NFT uploaded to both OpenSea and Foundation App, you know have “tokenized” the same NFT twice and now have 2 certificates. But would a buyer want to buy Mona Lisa, if Mona Lisa had two identical copies, no original, and was no longer unique?

    Once I create my art with a platform such as photoshop, what do I do next? What do I need to convert the pdf into to allow for auction?

      Hello!
      Yes, once you upload it to Opensea, it would be “minted” = encoded = would be an NFT.
      How many would be made? – As much as you want to
      Can we use brands and famous people? You can’t resell other people’s photos, also, even though celebrities are public figures, most law regulations around the world are prohibiting the use of celebrities’ photos for commercial use.
      NFT Size – Most platforms don’t have limits for the dimensions, only for the max size of the file. For Opnesea it’s 100 MB. That can be image 500×800, 3d model 500×500, or video.

        Thank you very much for the reply.I’m very new to nft and very interested )) When I upload the digital picture I made to opensea, the process is complete.i will make unique image and i just need to upload it to nft platform.

        is correct?
        what about using characters? example disney or monalisa etc.?

        Well, many people made similar pixel pictures.why so similar and simple drawings? Do I misunderstand?are those pixel simple drawings, the code version of the real picture? because there are also very professional drawings.I’m sorry I asked a lot of questions, I’m very new and my English is low 🤗

        Can I combine my drawing with a real photo or object and make a collage?

        thank you so much i wish you a happy new year.

        Ebru💖

        • Vivi says:

          Yes. After uploading and paying for the minting, your NFT is now done and open for sale!
          Disney, Monalisa – those are very famous characters that are under copyright. Disney can sue you, don’t risk it!
          The style of the picture – pixels, professional drawings, or others – doesn’t matter. Most NFT artists create pixels because they are easier to do, and the file is smaller.
          My suggestion is to follow your own unique style, don’t copy others, do whatever you love!

          Thank you for visiting our website, Ebru! Good luck!
