Project.824 will be on the Ethereum blockchain, therefore you will need to purchase the NFTs with Ether(Eth.), the native currency of the Ethereum network.
Create a MetaMask account.
Firstly, you’ll need to create a MetaMask account by going to metamask.io. Cryptocurrency wallet security is very important, so never give out your seed phrase or password to anyone. Make sure you write them down multiple times and store them somewhere safe. If you lose access to your account for whatever reason and do not have these, you won’t be able to access your account again. It’s not best security practice to screenshot these and keep them on your phone or write them down in your notes.
How to buy ETH on the Project.824 website
Navigate to the top right hand corner of the Project.824 website and click the ‘connect’ button. Connect your MetaMask wallet by selecting the account you want to connect to the site and click, “next” and then “connect” again. Click on the small person icon and select the “Top Up” option which will open up a smaller Transak window. Decide how much ETH you want to purchase, keep in mind you will need to note the conversion on fiat currency to ETH and select “buy ETH”. There will be about a 1 minute processing time for that ETH to land in your MetaMask wallet.
How to mint an NFT from the Project.824 website
Find the “Buy Now” button in the top menu of the website. Select the quantity of NFTs you want to mint. Pre-sale has a max quantity of two; public sale has a max of 5 per transaction with a max of 10 total per wallet. Click on “Select and Buy”. When your MetaMask opens again you’ll see the total mint price of your NFTs displayed. Below that is the estimated gas fee (transaction fee) and below that is the total amount of your transaction (NFTs + gas fee). If you have enough ETH in your wallet to cover the mint price + gas, you can click “Confirm” and your transaction will begin processing.
