Noname Nerd NFT FAQ

What are Noname Nerd NFTs?
These are digital collectables that are one-of-a-kind items secured by smart contracts on the Polygon blockchain (a branch of Etherium and compatible with Etherium wallets.)  They are non-fungible tokens (NFTs) that are part of a blockchain.  In other words, they are digital collectibles that can be bought, sold, or transferred to anyone who has an Ethereum wallet.  

What can I put on my Noname Nerd NFT?
The digital content of your collectable is up to you. You will provide us with an image or video (e.g. your logo), a link (e.g. to your stream), and a short description.  You can create one NFT or many.  Each will be digitally unique and can be bought and sold.  The following file types are supported:  JPG, PNG, GIF, SVG, MP4, WEBM, MP3, WAV, OGG, GLB, GLTF.  File size limit is 10 MB.

Why should I create a NFT?
You are only limited by your creativity.  You can create an NFT for your logo and gamer tag to lock in when you started streaming under that name and image.  You could create NFTs with clips of some of your best gaming moments.  Give them away to your followers!  Sell them on the open market!  Encourage your followers to buy and sell them!
Think about what has happened with physical trading cards like Pokemon cards and Magic cards over time. The same things is happening with NFTs right now as the market for NFTs is currently exploding (https://www.forbes.com/sites/lawrencewintermeyer/2021/02/12/non-fungible-token-market-booms-as-big-names-join-cryptos-newest-craze/?sh=446dd5a0460a).  As your career as a streamer or content creator grows, you have the opportunity to create a digital archive of your career growth by developing different generations of NFTs that can grow in value as your career grows (you can even create rare ones or common ones depending on how many you create).  

What do I actually get with my order?
  1. A non-fungible token (NFT) minted using Polygon and transferred to a digital wallet of your choice (ETH only)
  2. A digital copy of your NFT
What is a non-fungible token (NFT)?
NFT's are ways of creating digital scarcity.  It is a way to make digital items one-of-a-kind.  You can think of them as certificates of ownership in the same way that any cryptocurrency uses a distributed ledger to list ownership of digital currency.  Except, in this case, the distributed ledger lists off who owns particular items and not who owns particular currency.  You can find more information about NFTs here:  https://cointelegraph.com/magazine/nonfungible-tokens/. 

How can I see my NFT?
We recommend using Opensea (https://opensea.io/) to view your collection.  While you can see digital copies of your card through any image reader, to see the "true" copy you need to use a platform that integrates with your digital wallet.  Opensea is the largest marketplace for NFTs and, as we will discuss, provides a good platform for the transfer and sale of your cards in the future.  However, there are other options as well.

What do I need to "hold" my NFTs?
You do need to have a digital wallet.  We recommend that you use Metamask, which can integrate as a Chrome extension or separate app.  Digital wallets all have an address that can be used to receive cryptocurrency or NFTs.  Digital wallets are free and if you don't have one set up, we can hold your NFT in our wallet until you are ready to receive it.

Can I share my NFT?
Sort of.  You can share the images associated with the NFT; however, there is only one "true" digital copy of your card with a certificate of ownership logged in the Polygon blockchain.  The true copy can only be held within one digital wallet at a time.

Can I sell or transfer ownership of my NFT?
Absolutely!  We recommend using the Opensea (https://opensea.io/) to sell or transfer ownership of your NFT.  Please note that there are transaction fee for the sale of NFTs.  Also, there a commission will be paid to the originator (the Noname Nerd) every time a NFT is sold.

What happens after I place my order?
Check your email for instructions on what to do next.  You will be taken to an online form where you will provide the details of what you would like included in your NFT.  Your NFT will be registered on the Polygon and the ownership will be transferred to an Ethereum wallet of your choice.  If you don't have an Ethereum wallet, we can hold onto the card until you have one set up and transfer it to you later.
