Today, we’ll take you through a definitive guide to sign up for a new account on the mainnet using Smart Contracts Made Easy (SCEZ), charge our account with some crypto, and then create your first NFT using the EZ UI.
There will be a part 2 of this article, as well as a new video on our YouTube channel, where we’ll do the same thing programmatically. So make sure to keep an eye out on our blog and subscribe to our channel as we’ll continue to bring you new things about this DeFi project Smart Contracts Made Easy (SCEZ).
We’re really excited to share this with you. I know that overall, this is going to be a huge lift to people who want an easy and intuitive way to be able to make their own NFTs or smart contracts. In light of this opportunity, we’ll be leveraging everything on the Cardano ecosystem using a very simple API.
I will be taking you through some of the programmatics in the second part of this guide, but let’s start from the beginning.
After logging in, start verifying your account information. If you haven’t already verified, you’ll see the option to verify your Email and phone number in the dashboard. This is an extremely important step that must be completed to be able to proceed with creating NFTs.
Next, you’ll see that you have a wallet balance of 0 ADA. This is another important step in the process as we cannot create an NFT without using any ADA. So make sure to deposit 50 or more ADA to the account (50 is the minimum deposit amount).
You’ll also receive a guide to complete the above steps in your signup confirmation email. Or you can refer to the image below to get the idea of how to complete this section of the process:
After making the deposit, you’ll receive a confirmation email from our side. Make sure to keep an eye out for this email to confirm that your deposit has safely reached the account without any interruptions.
Now that we have our account all set up, it time to move on to creating NFTs. So once you have your account deposited with at least 50 ADA, go to the dashboard.
Now, all that’s left to do is wait for your NFT to be minted. Once the minting is successfully, you’ll be able to access the transaction history for minting the NFT in your SCEZ account, and you’ll also be able to view your NFT in the Assets section of your wallet that you chose to mint the NFT into.
Finally, going into the NFT Orders section will show you all the information of all the NFTs you’ve minted with SCEZ.
You can view the minted NFT by using the NFT Url of the NFT you wish to see. Simply copy the URL, paste it into the address bar of your browser, and hit enter.
You will also get an email confirmation when an NFT is successfully minted. The email too will have the NFT file attached with it.
Now, going back to your personal wallet that you linked with SCEZ, you’ll find all the info regarding the transactions associated with minting the NFTs. Inside the transactions section, you’ll see a transaction with your Token name as the description or caption.
This is essentially the processing fee made into your personal wallet. If you see this, you can be assured that the token created with SCEZ has safely arrived in your personal wallet.
An NFT is an asset, so you’ll find the minted token inside the Assets section of your personal wallet. Just go to this section and you’ll see the minted NFT there, along with the Token name that you entered while creating the NFT.
This ultimately means that you now have your very own NFT created under your ownership!
So that’s a real-time example of how simple it is to create an NFT with SCEZ. If this sounds interesting for you, make sure to check out SCEZ and explore greater possibilities!
Tomorrow, we’ll run a code sample and we’ll show you how simple it is via a web page. We’ll also show you an example with some .NET code on how to create an NFT. So make sure you keep an eye out on our blog and follow our YouTube channel for guides in video format.
