What is NFT art?

NFT art is digital art that is registered on the Blockchain to one owner. It can be viewed in one of many digital marketplaces or via QR code linking to a marketplace from a smart phone.

What do I do with my NFT? How do I keep it safe?

Metagolden stores your art in our virtual vault so that you can access it at any time with your personalized QR key via smart phone. The QR key lives in a lucite cube frame that can be displayed in your home or office. * If you decide to sell your digital art you will need a crypto wallet. Crypto wallets allow you to sell or purchase digital art on various NFT marketplaces (virtual galleries) with crypto currency.

What is a crypto wallet?

A crypto wallet stores cryptocurrencies and NFTs and allows you to transact digitally with other users or markets.

Do I need a crypto wallet to buy NFT art?

Yes on digital marketplaces, but not on METAgolden.com. When you purchase jewelry and digital art on our site we store your digital art in our vault and allow you to access it at any time. It can also be transferred or sold at your discretion. We manage the crypto part of the process for you. Transactions on our site are standard- via credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express).

Can I purchase the jewelry by itself?

Yes but the price is the same. You would just not take possession of the digital art portion of your purchase.

What if I have a crypto wallet and want to purchase the art with cryptocurrency?

Metagolden accepts cryptocurrency as a payment option. You can choose to pay with cryptocurrency during checkout.

Where does my NFT go when I buy it?

If you purchase on our website it is transferred from our account on Opensea to our digital vaullt on the same platform. You can then have access to it there for display via QR code. If you already have a Metamask or other crypto wallet you may purchase directly on our account on Opensea (https://opensea.io/collections). And once the transaction is approved the art will be visible in your crypto wallet. You will still need to contact us to let us know where to send the physical piece and the QR display code in a lucite frame.

What are gas fees?

If you purchase with ETH (cryptocurrency) on Opensea using your Metamask, the Ethereum Blockchain assesses a transaction fee called "gas fees". These fees range for transferring funds and buying NFTs. Gas fees pay computers for solving equations required to process your transactions securely. This process is open source, which means you can watch what is going on behind the scenes on Etherscan.

Can I choose different art to attach to my jewelry?

Yes but that would be a custom order. Custom commissions start at $2500. For inquiries please contact support@metagolden.com.
