Step 2. Connect your wallet

Blockasset is built on Solana, so purchases and bids are made using the $SOL token.

First, click the ‘CONNECT WALLET’ button at the top of the page.

From here you will be asked to connect your Solana wallet.

Please follow the appropriate Wallet guide below, depending on the device you are using, for ease of use we highly recommend using a desktop.

MOBILE (NOT RECCOMENDED)

If you are on mobile DO NOT click Phantom wallet on the pop-up that appears, instead, click ‘Select a different Solana wallet’.

On mobile, select the highlighted box above ‘Select a different Solana wallet’

Next, choose ‘Sollet’ as your wallet option.

This will open up the below page.

You will need to write down or save your seed phrase. Think of this as a 12-word password that you can use to recover your wallet if your device is lost or stolen. Keep this safe and never show it to anyone.

Next, tick to state you have saved the phrase and download the backup file. Then click ‘CONTINUE’.

Next, paste or type in your phrase to confirm. Leave a space between each word.

Confirm your seed phrase

Next, add a password of your choice. This is optional, but for maximum security, we recommend adding a password.

On the following page, click ‘Connect’.

Your wallet will now be connected to Blockasset! Continue to Step 3.

DESKTOP (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)

On desktop, you can go ahead with any wallet, but we recommend Phantom as they have a cool NFT preview section!

On desktop, go ahead and click ‘Sign in with Phantom’.

A new tab will open, and you’ll need to select ‘Add to Chrome’.

‘Select ‘Add to Chrome’

You’ll be redirected to the Chrome extension page, here just click ‘Add to Chrome’ and then approve the download.

The Phantom page should appear asking you to create a new wallet. If not, just click the jigsaw icon on the top right corner and select the Phantom icon.

You’ll then be asked to create your wallet.

Click ‘Create New Wallet

Write down the 12 words that appear on your screen. DO NOT share these with anyone. Keep them private and store them somewhere safe. If you ever forget your password, lose your phone/laptop you can use these 12 words to recover your wallet.

Click this once you have noted your 12 word phrase.

Next, create a password and you’re good to go!

Step 4. Load your wallet

Next, you’ll need to load your wallet with $SOL.

Just click the Phantom logo on the top right-hand corner of Chrome, login, and click ‘Deposit SOL’.

There are two ways to load $SOL onto your wallet.

Option 1: Deposit from an exchange

You can buy and store $SOL from exchanges like Binance or Coinbase, and then send your $SOL to your new wallet.

On the Deposit SOL screen on Phantom, choose ‘Send from wallet/exchange’. Your wallet address will appear, simply copy this and send your SOL funds to this address from your exchange or another wallet.

Option 2: Buy from FTX pay

Alternatively, you can load $SOL straight into your Phantom wallet with a Debit or Credit card via FTX pay. To do so, just select ‘Deposit SOL’ then ‘Deposit from FTX’ (as below) and follow the on-screen instructions to sign up, complete KYC, and buy your SOL.

Step 5. Buy your NFT

Buying an NFT is very simple, just click ‘Marketplace’ and head to the NFT you want to buy then, with your wallet signed in, click ‘Place bid’.

Next, place a bid on the collectible and wait for the auction to finish.

Items with more than one winner will only extend the bidding if the number of bidders exceeds the number of NFT’s available. In the example above, there are 50 NFTs available at a price of 3 $SOL. If a 51st bidder comes in, then a bidding war will commence with the lowest bids losing out to higher bids. You will receive a notification on Blockasset when logged in with your wallet if this occurs.

Step 6. View your NFT

You can easily view your NFT in all its glory by opening your Phantom wallet and clicking the bottom icon. From here you can easily send your NFT to another $SOL wallet.
