This year, NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) gained a lot of traction, and numerous projects were released with communities emerging around them.

Many users (anonymous or not) choose to change their profile photo (or ‘PFP’ for short) to an NFT from one of their collections as a show of loyalty or support for a project. This makes these users clearly recognized as members of a community, and owning/displaying an NFT with uncommon/rare qualities can raise the NFT’s social value as well as its monetary value.

Indeed, thanks in part to the advent of art-based PFP NFTs, OpenSea, a prominent trading market for NFTs, has seen exponential increase in its user base and sales volume.

Many people have enjoyed creating their own PFP NFT initiatives, however this can be difficult if you lack the necessary expertise or skill set.

STEP 1: CONNECT TO THE ETHEREUM NETWORK

We’ll use a free account on Opensea, a blockchain development platform and API that allows us to interface with the Ethereum chain without needing to run our own nodes, to send requests to the Ethereum blockchain.

We’ll also use Opensea’s developer tools for monitoring and analytics in this lesson to figure out what’s going on behind the scenes in our smart contract deployment. You can create an Opensea account for free if you don’t already have one.

STEP 2: CREATE AN ETHEREUM ACCOUNT (ADDRESS)

To send and receive transactions, we’ll need an Ethereum account. In this article, we’ll utilize MetaMask, a browser-based virtual wallet for managing your Ethereum account address. MetaMask is available for free download and registration.

STEP 3: LIST YOUR ITEM /PRODUCT

After creating your art, upload your art piece here.
