Create Your Profile
To trade on the NFT portal, you'll first need to initialize your wallet. You will see a generated symbol for your Signum account at the top right, and you are already ready to trade. If you do not intend to create NFTs, you don't need to create a profile via the portal.
If you want to contribute your art to the portal, create a profile linked to your Signum account. After connecting your wallet and initializing your Signum account, go to the create profile page.
To store your NFTs images, you need to open an IPFS storage account. The NFT portal supports three providers. You can choose between a Pinata account or an NFT.Storage account or a Web3.strorage account to upload your NFTs to the IPFS (storage). Please follow the link on the page via the provider logo to open your provider account and create an API JWT token on their page, which needs to be stored locally on your PC by pasting it into the JWT section. The token should have all rights to read and upload files to the IPFS storage provider.
