Buying Garbage Patch Kids Is Easy
In order to bid on an original Garbage Patch Kid NFT on Metaplex, you must have a SOL (Solana) wallet. In this article, we'll take you through all of the necessary (but easy) steps in minting a Garbage Patch Kid NFT.
1) Creating an SOL Wallet
In order to bid on a Garbage Patch Kid NFT, you must first make a SOL wallet. This enables you to securely fund your wallet with SOL, and make purchases on Metaplex. Holaplex recommends that you use Phantom wallet to safely store and utilize your SOL tokens.
Head to the Phantom's website, install the Google Chrome extension and create your account.
2) Adding Funds to Your Phantom Wallet
There are a few different ways that you can purchase SOL tokens to fund your wallet. On Phantom, you can utilize a service called FTX Pay, enabling you to pay by wire transfer, or even credit card. Open up your newly created Phantom wallet, click on the "Deposit SOL" button, then click "Deposit from FTX". You must create an FTX account to purchase SOL tokens with this feature.
3) Connecting Your Phantom Wallet to Metaplex
In order to connect your Phantom Wallet to Metaplex, all that you need to do is click on the "Connect Wallet" button on the top right of the Holaplex website. From there you will select the "Phantom Wallet" selection (unless you're utilizing a different wallet for Solana purchases). You're now able to begin bidding on your desired Garbage Patch Kid! Go to our Holaplex online store at https://yellowtrashcan.holaplex.com/listings?view=live to look at our current selection.
