What is the best way to make a free NFT?
In this article, I’ll show you how to make a free NFT. It’s easier than you may think to make, or’mint,' an NFT, and so’s just as easy to do it for free. I’ll be concentrating on generating a single NFT artwork in this tutorial rather than minting generative NFTs or an NFT collection.So, what exactly are NFTs? These non-fungible tokens have swept the globe, but they're not quite as complicated as they appear. NFTs are a method of registering a digital file on a cryptocurrency blockchain to ensure that it is a one-of-a-kind object and to demonstrate ownership. We have a complete guide on how to produce and sell an NFT, but I'll teach you how to make one for free right now.
Representing what is perhaps the most cutting-edge new investment phenomenon of this past year, non-fungible tokens are the new crypto craze, just a short five years after most of us started learning about Bitcoin, Ethereum, and the various ‘alt coins’. Of course, with new technological developments arise a host of novel legal issues, stretching the limits of traditional intellectual property law. Hence, this brief survey of the still-nascent NFT relative to existing IP.
Introducing the OG Gallery 2.0
One year ago, I published my first article outlining Creatd’s NFT strategy. At that time, it was clear that our investors and other stakeholders were keen on understanding how our creator-first company would capture value in the new digital frontiers of blockchain, crypto, and their derivative technologies (i.e. NFTs, metaverse lands). We spent the intervening months exploring opportunities within the blockchain space, including experimenting with numerous NFT art drops, pursuing the potential integration of cryptocurrency into the Vocal platform, and using smart contracts for other e-commerce platform opportunities currently in the works.
How to Mint, Collect and Trade NFTs
In times of geopolitical crisis and uncertainty, I will shed some light on how to trade NFTs using the example of OpenSea which is the one of the largest platform for NFT minting, trading, as well as analytics tracking for the largest NFT projects on Ethereum network. OpenSea won the hearts of the artists and collectors due to lazy, ‘gas-less’ minting without additional fees (after you initialize your account for sales for the first time).
A Gross Simplification of the NFT Market: What You Need to Know Now
At recent family dinner my mother told me she couldn't understand how these NFT's could be worth so much money. I told her actually she did understand: These hyperlinks to ugly cartoon apes seem like they should be worthless, because they are worthless. It's a scam.
Top 5 Cryptocurrencies That Could Explode In 2022
Cryptocurrencies have emerged as one of the top investments of the twenty-first century. It has recently piqued the interest of investors, who perceive a leverage point in investing in the numerous coins available in this market.

However, the primary stakeholders, traders, speculators, and investors, drive this crypto market's rapid growth and anticipate some of the leading cryptocurrencies that may erupt in 2022. The following is a list of top 5 cryptocurrencies with high potential.
I crowdfunded a novel using crypto (and minted the chapters as NFTs)
I was recently texting back and forth with a certain startup founder turned angel investor turned crypto enthusiast named Scott Paul. He’s something of a personality in Utah’s crypto scene—not only has he successfully founded and funded four startups (and invested in countless others), but he also owns an eccentric number of wigs and has a tendency to teach crypto classes at BYU dressed like Jesus—this is kind of what he is going for.
Welcome to the NFT World
I got involved in the NFT world only two weeks ago. I had no idea of what it was before then. NFTs are still considered to be in the early stages since the first known use of the word NFT was in 2017.
The Difference Between Blockchain and Distributed Ledger
Are blockchain and distributed ledger the same in terms of technological applications? The answer is No. We live in a digital era dominated by sound bites and jargon. Even complicated technology solutions are simplified to five words or fewer in this day and age. As a result, we're seeing more crafty businesses try to cash in on the so-called crypto craze. Some are even renaming themselves with the word "blockchain" in their name.
One of Horror’s First NFT-Backed Short Films, “Trick Not Treat”, Hits AtomicHub Marketplace
On Saturday, October 23, Lawford County Productions and Terror Cards announced the drop of one of the first short horror films ever to be made for the purpose of being minted as a Non-Fungible Token, otherwise known as an NFT. Owners of the NFT will be granted access to view the short, “Trick Not Treat”, which has a running time of four minutes and 55-seconds and stars independent talent by the likes of Gil T. Wilson as “Jack”, Christine Jones as “Sally”, Grayson Pinkston as the Candy Corn Bag Spirit and Adam Gard (10/31 Part III) as the Trick or Treater.

Is eCash (XEC) cryptocurrency a good investment? I saw the commercial about eCash crypto and I was like "What?" I never heard anything about it before. It looks so cool! So, what is eCash?
4 Benefits of NFTs for Creators and Artists
In a previous article, I wrote about how NFTs enable the market for digital collectibles. I've also covered how people's desire to collect in the digital world can be explained by all the same emotional and cultural factors that make us collect in the physical world. Digital collectibles are arguably so similar to physical ones at a fundamental level that there's no reason why they wouldn't become an integral part of our lives in the years to come. People wanting to truly own their digital assets just makes sense.
