Crypto Wallet

A cryptocurrency wallet is a place to safely store your digital currency and digital assets (like NFTs), similar to a physical wallet which stores your money when you’re not using it. There are two things, which you need to transact in crypto:

  • Your wallet address - also called your public key
  • Your private key A public key is like your bank account number. You can share it with other people or institutions, so they can send money to you or you can use this key to obtain your digital tokens once you have bought them. A public key is also called your wallet address and it looks like this : 0x9611E91111FBd57Bf49041DE9a362B14f168FE11 (this address is for illustration purposes only) A private key is like your bank account password or the PIN to your debit card. This sequence of 12 words has to be stored as securely as possible and should never be disclosed to anyone. It is of utmost importance to keep it secure. Once lost or disclosed, your digital wallet will be at risk of being stolen. These 12 words or the seed phrase, cannot be regenerated if lost. For security reasons, neither Metamask/Coinbase, nor any other third party will be privy to these words and they cannot be recovered once lost. There are multiple options when it comes to using a crypto wallet. The most used ones are Metamask & Coinbase.

Buying NFTs by crypto or credit card does not have any bearings on the NFT itself. It simply pertains to the user’s convenience.

However, it should be noted that Queen Mode has partnered with Crossmint for the execution of fiat currency transactions, so there is an extra charge borne by the person buying the NFTs during credit card transactions. This extra charge can be avoided if the purchase is made with crypto.

Congratulations on purchasing your first NFTs from Queen Mode! To view them in your wallet, you can follow either one of the below steps:

Opensea.io

To view your NFTs on Opensea.io, follow these steps:

It is highly advisable to create and install a wallet before you start minting. If you decide to buy the NFTs with a credit/debit card, a wallet is not necessary. However, you may opt to transfer your NFTs to your digital wallet once you have minted them, and you will need a functional digital wallet for this. We recommend Metamask or Coinbase as the simplest wallet options.

If you decide to mint with a credit card, a crypto wallet with sufficient eth in it is absolutely necessary.
