Can I use my Credit Card to pay?
Can I purchase the NFT using cryptocurrency?
At this time, the only way to purchase an NFT on Black Snow is with a credit card and fiat currency, but it will be minted on the Solana blockchain and sent to your Solana wallet.
What is an NFT?
In simple terms, an NFT (Non-Fungible Token) is a digital file that contains a one-of-a-kind code and is permanently recorded on a blockchain. Accordingly, an NFT cannot be altered, thus guaranteeing authenticity and provenance.
A blockchain is a decentralized, digital record that cannot be forged or counterfeited. Each time a transaction occurs, it is recorded on the blockchain ledger, and is transparent to the public.
No two NFTs are alike, thus providing exclusivity, scarcity, and value in the digital realm.
Why purchase an NFT?
When purchasing an NFT, the buyer is receiving a unique and secure digital asset, such as a piece of digital artwork, with a unique serial number, backed by the blockchain. Just like buying other collectables, such as coins or baseball cards, you are purchasing a unique asset that may increase or decrease in value and may be sold or traded.
How do I purchase an NFT?
Three Steps: (1) Create a Digital Wallet, (2) Connect the wallet to Black Snow, and (3) click to buy the NFT using a credit card. The NFT will then be delivered to your Solana-supported wallet.
What is a Digital Wallet?
A Digital Wallet is a secure place to store cryptocurrency and NFTs.
How do I create a Digital Wallet?
If you are new to NFTs, we suggest using the Phantom Digital Wallet (although almost any Digital Wallet compatible with Solana will work). Go to https://phantom.app and follow the instructions to add Phantom as an extension to your browser.
Be sure to save your wallet address, secret recovery code, and password in a safe place because there is no centralized authority to perform a password reset for you. Your wallet is only identified by its address, not by your email or phone number, so don’t forget your address, especially if your computer or device is lost or crashes.
How do I connect my Digital Wallet to Black Snow?
Click the “CONNECT WALLET” button, and then authorize Black Snow to connect to your wallet.
What is Solana?
Solana works on a Proof-of-Stake consensus mechanism. It is widely accepted that Proof-of-Stake consensus mechanisms exert much less energy than Proof-of-Work (i.e., Ethereum). Further, Solana provides a faster experience than other blockchain protocols, and thus, boasts a broad base of users and developers.
Do I need to add SOL Cryptocurrency to my Digital Wallet?
No. You can purchase Black Snow NFTs using a credit card. However, you still need to connect your wallet to receive your NFT.
How can I see my NFTs?
Open your Phantom wallet and click on the + icon to view your artwork.
Can I gift an NFT?
How can I resell my NFTs?
Once you have purchased an NFT, you can offer it for resale on many NFT platforms connected to Solana, including Solsea, by connecting your wallet there. Note that different platforms may take a percentage of the resale, in addition to the smart contract royalty.
What is a smart contract royalty?
NFTs are designed with a small resale price or transaction fee if you resell them. You can always send an NFT as a gift without incurring any fee, but if you resell the NFT to a third party on the blockchain, there will be a 10% transaction fee.
What wallets do you support?
We recommend the Phantom wallet. We also support Slope, Solflare, Torus, Ledger or Sollet.
What internet browser can I use?
On Windows and Mac you may use Chrome, Firefox, Edge or Brave; Safari and Brave Beta are not currently supported. On mobile you can use any mobile browser, but you will need a mobile Solana wallet application as well, such as Solflare (available for iOS and Android) or Phantom (currently available for iOS only).
How do I purchase an NFT on mobile?
You will need a mobile wallet, such as Solflare (available for iOS and Android) or Phantom (currently available for iOS only). Then you will need to copy your Solana wallet’s public address to the clipboard on your phone with the 📋 icon. Then when you go to purchase the NFT on Black Snow from a mobile device, you will be prompted to enter your wallet address. Please be sure to enter your wallet address exactly (which is why we recommend copying and pasting); if you get even one character wrong your NFT will not reach you and we cannot retrieve it.
How long does an NFT take to deliver?
Once you purchase an NFT, it will appear in your wallet in a matter of seconds to a few minutes, depending on the number of concurrent transactions on the Solana blockchain.
Why is an NFT collectible?
NFT’s are permanently and immutably recorded on the blockchain, thus proving ownership and provenance.
