In this tutorial, I'll be showing you how to mint an NFT on Kephi.
Kephi is an NFT marketplace built on top of Kardiachain, and they host monthly contests where NFT artists can earn prizes.
If you don't know what Kardiachain is, I highly suggest checking out my Kardiachain review.
And if you'd like to learn more about the monthly contests on Kephi, I suggest taking a look at their Medium article.
With that being said, let's jump into the tutorial.
The first thing you need to do is connect your wallet to Kephi.
You have 3 options for this:
Feel free to choose whichever wallet you're most comfortable with.
If you're completely lost and don't know what wallet to use, I suggest checking out my Ultimate Guide To MetaMask which is unnecessarily long, but covers everything you need to know.
If you already know your way around and just want the info for adding Kardiachain as a custom network to MetaMask, here's the info you need:
Network Name: KardiaChain Mainnet
New RPC URL: https://rpc.kardiachain.io
Block Explorer URL: https://explorer.kardiachain.io
Once you have your wallet connected, you'll see a "Create" button at the top right of the screen
Click that button and you should land on the following page:
You'll need to choose whether you want your NFT to be a unique, 1 of 1...
Or, you can choose to mint multiple copies instead.
The process is basically the same for both options, so I'm going to select "multiple" for this tutorial.
Now that I've clicked "Create Multiple", I've landed on this screen:
We'll need to fill out some information.
First, choose the file you want to upload. There's a max size of 30MB, and we can choose between the following formats:
I've gone ahead and chosen my PNG file.
Now we can move on to the next step.
As you can see, there's a few basic options here.
This option let's you decide if you want the NFT to be listed for sale immediately, or if you want to upload without listing it for sale right away.
Turn this option ON if you want to set a fixed price for your NFT.
If you want the NFT to be auctioned, turn this off.
The next field is the price field. Pretty self explanatory.
Set the price for your NFT (you'll only see this option if you have "Put On Sale" turned ON)
You can choose to sell your NFT for KAI, K-USDT or KPHI.
If you choose KPHI, Kephi's native token, then you save 50% on service fees.
Speaking of service fees, the cost of minting an NFT on Kephi is 350 KAI tokens, which is currently about $5 at the time of this writing.
If you successfully make a sale, 5% of the total price goes to Kephi as a commission.
If you choose KPHI as the token you want to accept, then you only pay 2.5% instead.
In case that's unclear, if you DON'T choose KPHI as the listing token, you'll pay:
If you DO choose KPHI as the listing token, you'll pay:
The 350 KAI is the same whether you mint 1 NFT, or 1 million. So it's cheaper per NFT if you choose "Create Multiple".
This option is used if you want to only grant access to the file after being paid.
For example, let's say you were selling an E-Book to someone.
You could set the "Unlock Once Purchased" field to ON, then enter a custom URL in this field.
After the buyer pays for the listing, they will receive access to that custom URL, and then they can go download the book.
Now we just need to enter the specific metadata for this NFT.
You'll notice that there are a few fields we need to fill out.
First, you can choose which collection you want to add this NFT to.
You can create your own collection if you like, or just add it to the existing Kephi collection.
If you choose to create your own collection, it's very simple to do.
All you need to do is upload a picture, and enter a name, symbol, description and a link to your website.
The name is just whatever you want to call your NFT. I'll just call mine "Wojak 2345".
Here, you can enter a brief description of your NFT. Don't get this confused with adding custom traits, we'll do that in a second.
The description field is more suitable for something like "This is a WOJAK NFT. You get to look at it and appreciate how cool it is."
The title on this one is a bit confusing in my opinion.
This is where you set the max supply of your NFT (you'll only see this if you chose "Create Multiple").
I guess the title is literally correct, since an NFT is a Non-Fungible Token.
However, I think "Max Supply" would be a lot easier for people to comprehend.
Anyhow, just type in the supply you want to set for this template.
In this field, you can set the commission you would like to take when someone sells one of your NFTs on the market.
For example, let's say you set this to 10%.
Then someone buys your NFT. After that, they go and sell it to someone else for $100,000.
You get 10% of that $100,000, and you just made $10,000 in royalties.
Congrats fam, no more ramen noodles for you.
This field is optional, but you can set custom properties for your NFTs if you like.
As you can see here, I've added a "Hat" property with the value of "23".
I've also added an "Eyes" property with the value of "Heart Glasses".
You can add or remove properties by clicking the + or x icon.
Now you just need to mint the NFT.
Click the "Create Item" button and then sign the transaction.
After that, your NFT is minted. If you selected the "Put On Sale" option, then your listing will go live right away.
You should now be an expert on minting NFTs on Kephi.
