As you might’ve guessed, we are launching on SOLANA which requires a minimum of a SOLANA compatible wallet and ideally some SOL to purchase the NFTs. And no, Bitcoin and Ethereum can’t be used here (Nor can a MetaMask wallet).
We are however pleased to offer credit card payments (a world first with a SOLANA NFT Release)
Here’s a quick look at how to set up a Solana wallet and load it up with SOL
Step 1: Get a Solana wallet
Luckily, you have some good options when it comes to wallets, whether they’re browser extensions or dedicated apps designed specifically for Solana. They are:
Phantom is a popular option for an in-browser extension for Chrome (and Chrome forks like Brave).
Solflare is another attractive-looking Solana wallet that you can access via web or a Chrome extension.
We’ll stick with Phantom for the purposes of this tutorial. Simply add it to your browser via Google’s Chrome Web Store and then open it. When setting up a new wallet, Phantom will give you a 12-word seed phrase to write down or store somewhere, in case you need to restore your wallet at some point. Set a password, confirm, and then you’re in.
(Note: This seed phrase is the key to unlocking your funds. Anyone with this phrase can access them, so keep it in a safe place and don’t share it with anyone who you don’t want accessing your wallet.)
*Note, if you want to pay with Credit Card you do not need to complete step 2. Please complete step 2 if you wish to pay with SOL.
Step 2: Get some SOL
You’ll need SOL to purchase the SNKR WARS NFTs at Solana-based marketplaces, and with Phantom, there are a few different ways to get the coins into your wallet.
One option is simply to purchase Solana at an exchange and then send it to your wallet. For example, if you’re in the United States, you can purchase SOL at Coinbase and send it over to your Phantom wallet. This should take less than a minute. Phantom also offers direct integration with cryptocurrency exchange FTX, making it easy to deposit funds held within that exchange.
Additionally, you can transfer USDT stablecoins from an exchange or wallet into your Phantom wallet, and then exchange them for SOL and other Solana-based tokens within Phantom (as seen below).
Step 3: Exchange your SOL for the NFT's
Follow the prompts when the minting site goes live and exchange your SOL for the NFT Card Pack (Or use credit card and supply your phantom wallet to receive your NFT’s)
