Tips to Keep Your MetaMask Secure

We recommend that our collectors take a few precautions including:

Connect a hardware wallet to the MetaMask. Be sure to take due care when connecting to other websites and applications. Fraudsters often try to mimic projects and use similar addresses to try to access someone else's assets. Do not share your private keys or passwords with anyone. If you are buying NFTs that are not in our Factory, make sure that the NFTs you are buying come from the actual artist or project. Scammers often reproduce known projects and try to sell them as originals. Ask trusted people who are more familiar with the technology and the project if they think a project is safe to link.

What is a blockchain and how can it help creators?

A blockchain is a publicly accessible online ledger (database), that is not owned by any central authority. Once anything is set in this ledger, it cannot be modified or censored by any single authority. Blockchain technology provides the following benefits to creators:

Scarcity: When you upload your creation to the blockchain, you can define the number of editions you want to release. The control and distribution of the editions is automated on the blockchain, so you can tightly manage the scarcity of your creations. No more than the defined number of editions, will ever be released.

Authenticity: When you upload your creation to the blockchain, it cannot be changed thereafter. Buyers can trust that the artwork they are purchasing is the original and has not been tampered with, because the publicly accessible data on the blockchain is always available to verify it. Even if other people copy it (as many tend to do online with digital content), the value of your artwork will not degrade, as long as the specific editions can be verified on the blockchain.

Ownership: Every transfer/purchase of your creations, is recorded on the blockchain. This means that there is a publicly accessible ownership history for your creations. Provenance is automated and accurate. Having a publicly accessible way to verify ownership will create more value for your creations since it'll be easier to identify infringing use of it. It'll also make it easier for you to support any DMCA takedown requests.

Each of these benefits is inherently available to you, just by using the blockchain. Even if MoreNFT ceases to exist, your digital creations will forever remain on the blockchain, and forever be transferable/purchasable. Having said that, interacting with the blockchain is still quite complex. What we are offering is a service that makes blockchain technology simple, and provide its benefits to all creators.

Like any technology however, blockchain isn't immune to risks. Please reference our Terms of Service if you'd like to learn more.

What do I need to use MoreNFT?

MoreNFT is a web-based service that can be used on both desktop and mobile.

Customers need to connect their MetaMask wallet to purchase digital creations using Ether, but otherwise no additional software is required to use MoreNFT.

What is a blockchain wallet?

Your blockchain wallet is your ID on the Ethereum blockchain and is used to digitally sign all your creations on MoreNFT.

To use MoreNFT you need to connect your MetaMask wallet. Click here to create a new wallet.

What is Ethereum?

Ethereum is the blockchain that MoreNFT uses. See what is a blockchain for more details.

Ethereum is also considered by many as a world computer. That means that any information stored on it isn't managed by any central authority, but rather stored across thousands of computers worldwide.

What is polygon

Polygon is the blockchain that MoreNFT uses. Polygon provides scalable, secure, and instant transactions with Ethereum currencies like ETH, USDC, and DAI. Currencies must first be "bridged" from Ethereum's mainnet to Polygon. Think of Polygon as a sibling to Ethereum, the currencies are similar, but the two blockchains have slight differences.

Which wallet do I need to use polygon?

To use MoreNFT you need to connect your MetaMask wallet.

MetaMask supports the Polygon network with which you can create, buy and sell NFTs with low fees.

Visit the following link to add Polygon network to your MetaMask.

What is Ether?

Ether is the cryptocurrency used to interact with Ethereum. It is also currently the main cryptocurrency used by MoreNFT to buy and sell your digital creations.

What is gas (gwei)?

Ethereum is considered a world computer, operated by many computers around the world. This means that interaction with it involves a transaction fee called gas to compensate Ethereum operators.

This fee is paid in Ether and can vary in price depending on how fast you want to publish your creations and the demand on the blockchain.

At this time, the gas fees associated with the creation, pricing and posting of artwork will have to be paid by the artist or collector.

What is WETH?

WETH is Wrapped Ether. WETH is an ERC-20 compatible version of ETH. 1 ETH will always be equivalent to 1 WETH. ETH on its own cannot be pre-approved (no approval) for bidding on items. That's why it needs to be wrapped.

Once ETH is wrapped into WETH, it can be used for advanced interactions on decentralized applications like MoreNFT. In addition, the use of WETH allows standardizing the exchange codebase (for potential support of additional ERC-20 tokens) and also helps mitigating risks such as reentrancy (and other costly fallback) that can occur with the transfer of ethers to unknown parties (e.g., the ask side of the trade).

What is a Seed Phrase and why should I save it?

When using a personal wallet for creating your artwork, it's important for you to save the 12-word seed phrase associated with your wallet and store it in a secure place. If you ever need to recover your wallet, this is the only way to do it.

If you lose your 12-word seed phrase associated with your wallet, all of your artworks will be lost forever.

What is a unique digital creation?

A unique digital creation is a digital creation (art, photograph, song..) that's been digitally signed by the creator and uniquely identified on the blockchain. In a world where anything digital can be infinitely copied, a unique digital creation can only owned by a single individual.

Non-fungible tokens

MoreNFT uniquely generates a non-fungible token (NFT) for each published creation. This token is proof of the ownership and authenticity of the creation.

We also use an open standard (ERC-721), which means that every creation is immediately available on third-party digital marketplaces, giving your work additional visibility. This is the same standard used by most blockchain-based digital assets, such as CryptoKitties and others.
