NEW to Harmony?
If you are new to Harmony and wish to mint / purchase NFT’s you will require some coins and a wallet to do so.
Check out this guide on how to buy ONE and create a wallet with Harmony— Once you have coins in your wallet, continue..
When we arrive to the website we are presented with a slick looking design and statistics. Nice!
Connecting Your Wallet
First things first — To start interacting with daVinci, we need to connect our wallet to the website to carry out transactions.
Click on connect and select the wallet you wish to use — For the purpose of this and previous guides, we will use the Harmony One Wallet.
Choose your wallet and Click ‘Accept’
Your wallet will now be connected and this is illustrated in the account menu
Edit Your Profile
Click profile in the menu to go to the profile page. Here you can add information about yourself, art and an avatar to help potential buyers see what you are all about!
Fill out the details and include any external links and click ‘Save Profile’
Create a Collection (Or not)
In the navigation bar, click on ‘Create’
You will be taken to a page where you can create a collection or simply mint an NFT in the daVinci collections.
- Create a new or pick one of your collections if you want your artworks to be grouped like Abstract paintings or Album songs.
- Pick no collection if you want a stand-alone item that will be added to DaVinci collections
I am going to opt to create a new collection.
Click New then add an image and fill out the name & description.
Click Save Collection and you will be prompted to approve the transaction with the Harmony Wallet. This will add the collection to your ONE address.
Your new collection will be visible on the page.
Mint an NFT
Ok so now we are ready to mint our first NFT.
Choose the type of NFT you wish to create. I am choosing Image but it is possible to Mint:
- Domain (coming soon!)
Upload the item and fill out the Name, Description and Tags
You will then have to decide on:
- Whether it is for sale or only to display
- The price per item
- How many copies of the collectible will be available and minted.
- What royalties on future reselling you require
There are further options to unlock this once purchased, the ability to redeem other collectibles from external sites and to mark it as adult content to make it unavailable to minors.
Click Create and you will once again be prompted to confirm the Transcation in the Harmony Wallet.
We can now click to see our new collectible NFT in Edit mode.
We can make any changes here if required but we want to have a link to share our new NFT and hopefully attract some interested buyers.
We can either go via the Collection link
Or via the ‘My Creations’ link in the profile menu.
This will take us to the page where the NFT’s are stored.
Because these are my own NFT’s, the view option is not available. To get the buy address, change ‘edit’ in the address bar to ‘view’
We are now on the page for purchasing the NFT and have a link to share with potential buyers.
If you want to buy a copy check this link (All proceeds go to the artists :P)
Purchase an NFT
We have created an NFT collectible but what about buying them?
We have 3 sections available with NFT’s available
Feel free to peruse these sections in the same way you would any online store :)
For the purpose of this guide, I will purchase the NFT we made above using another wallet.
Connect to address you wish to purchase from to the site.
You may need to sign out first if changing address
Once connected, navigate to the NFT that you wish to purchase.
I will buy my family's art because I am bias and I love them.
You have the option to ‘BUY NOW’
If you are sure you want to purchase, click it!
You will be prompted to confirm the transaction but this time you will notice that the transaction amount is 10 ONE and not 0 because this time an art deal is being done!
We can now click on the
View token in my collection link and the NFT will be displayed alongside any other NFT’s that have been purchased.
Click the image to view the NFT and you can also show the original image and download it by clicking the
Original Image link and saving the image.
