Getting Started with the ndau NFT Forge
The ndau NFT Forge is designed to support hard working content creators, artists and social media influencers everywhere.
With the ndau NFT Forge you can create NFTs with no technical or programming knowledge and immediately sell your NFTs on your Shopify store where your patrons and fans can easily purchase them with a credit card.
And the ndau NFT Forge lets you use any type of media you want in your NFTs: music, videos, images or documents!
This document will walk you through the process of setting up an ndau NFT Forge account, creating an NFT and putting your NFT up for sale on your Shopify store.
Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) are a powerful tool for artists who want to create content and more deeply engage with their fanbases. By leveraging blockchain technology, NFTs provide decentralization with built-in royalty opportunities as well as the ability to create digital membership tokens. This gives artists a whole new way to monetize their work, host innovative members-only events, and expand their network of followers.
With the Internet everyone becomes a content creator, influencer, distributor or promoter, and NFTs represent the future of online media royalties management. With Blockchain, royalties are instantaneously paid no matter where the media lives or who is transacting.
How does ndau fit into the world of NFTs?
This initial release version of the ndau NFT Forge allows you to pay for the creating (aka minting) of your NFTs using the Polygon-chain cryptocurrency MATIC, and you will receive any royalty payments in MATIC as well. The next release of the ndau NFT Forge (coming next month) will add the ability to pay for minting fees using ndau. Finally, a future release of the ndau NFT Forge will add the ability to receive royalty payments in ndau.
ndau is a self-sovereign, simple, and secure way to own crypto and earn more. By holding ndau in your wallet app, you automatically earn staking rewards while keeping complete self-sovereign ownership of your private keys. Additional yield opportunities, such as locking your ndau for a specific period of time or co-staking it to a validator node, provide more ways to earn at a higher rate. And as the first adaptive digital currency, ndau is optimized for a long-term store of value with a goal of buoyancy in market value.
ndau’s three pillars – a long-term store of value, multiple ways to earn staking yields, and a simple and secure user experience – make it a perfect match to be used as a digital currency in the NFT space. For example, with the ndau NFT Forge you will be able to:
- Receive NFT sales in ndau and keep your earnings in long-term store of value
- Earn yields on your NFT earnings by simply holding your ndau in your wallet
- Use your new ndau yields to pay for new NFT minting fees
