Purchasing ERTHA land with Metamask — a complete guide
Hello, Erthians! It has only been a few days since the release of the ERTHA marketplace, and HEX NFTs are already flying off the shelves at an incredible pace!
However, we still get a lot of questions about how to use the marketplace and purchase the land. This article will serve as a complete guide to purchasing ERTHA land NFTs using METAMASK.
Setting up Metamask
To begin, you will need to open a Metamask account. You will need the Metamask browser extension to make the purchase, and the Play Store Metamask App to see your NFTs in your wallet (optional).
Install the extension to your browser.
Create an account, follow the sign up process and remember to save your backup keys.
You should now see your wallet as shown in the screenshot above.
You will now need to connect Metamask to the Binance Smart Chain network.
Click on the colorful circle in the top-right corner to open a menu and click on Settings.
Next, scroll down and click on Networks.
Then, click on “Add Network”.
A new tab will open, and you will see the following screen:
Enter the following information:
Network Name: Binance Smart Chain
New RPC URL: https://bsc-dataseed.binance.org
Chain ID: 56
Currency Symbol (optional): BNB
Block Explorer URL (optional): http://bscscan.com
Congratulations, you have successfully added the BSC network to your Metamask! You can switch between networks by clicking on the dropdown menu as shown in the image above.
You will now need to fund the Metamask account using any method you prefer (from an exchange or another wallet) .
NOTE: If purchasing land with USDT or USDC, make sure to have at least a minimal amount of BNB in your Metamask to cover the BEP20 transaction fees!
Purchasing ERTHA land
After completing all of the steps listed above, head to our marketplace:
NOTE: Currently the store can only be accessed from Desktop. If you’re experiencing lag, make sure to enable Hardware Acceleration in your browser settings.
When it loads, you will see the ERTHA globe.
Log in with your Metamask by clicking LOG IN at the top of the screen.
A Metamask window will pop up, authorize the connection and you will be logged in.
Look for HEX you want to purchase. The ones that are currently available are colored teal (light blue). Click on them to see their resources and price.
After you decide which HEX you want to purchase, click “Add to Cart”.
Your shopping cart will appear on the right-hand side. Click “Place Order” to reserve your HEXs and start the payment process.
Select the currency you wish to pay with. In this guide, USDT is selected, but every currency works the same way.
Metamask automatically prepares the transaction and a new window pops up.
If the payment is successful, the NFT minting process starts automatically.
To see when your NFT arrives, go to https://bscscan.com/ and paste your Metamask wallet address into the search bar.
Once it finds your wallet, click on Erc721 tokens.
Usually, purchased NFTs show up on BSCSCAN in less than 15 minutes.
Congratulations, you successfully purchased ERTHA NFT land!
Adding the NFT to Metamask
This step is optional — you already have the NFTs in your wallet, but they’re not visible yet.
To make them show up, you must use the Metamask app — it will not work on the browser extension!
LINK your Metamask browser extension wallet to the Metamask App (Don’t create a new account!), select “NFTs” and select “Import NFTs”
The following screen will appear:
Add the following contract address in the “Address” section:
Add the HEX ID (Token ID) you see on BSCSCAN. (333772 in this example, yours will be different)
Click “Import” and you’re done! The NFT will now appear under the NFT section of your Metamask App.
