Setting up

Metamask is the best wallet to use when trading NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain. A large portion of NFTs are created on Ethereum, making this an essential tool for NFT traders.

Coinbase is the easiest exchange to get started buying cryptocurrency. When you make any transactions on the Ethereum blockchain (like buying or selling an NFT), you will need some ETH to pay the transaction fee. Coinbase is an easy option to get some ETH to cover transaction costs and the price of the NFT.
