OpenSea is the premiere NFT marketplace where anyone with a crypto wallet can buy and sell anything from high-brow photographs, portraits and fine art by Brett Ashby.
While the blockchain technology behind NFT trading can seem complicated, getting set up on OpenSea and exploring the platform is about as easy as creating an account on any other website.

From the OpenSea homepage, navigate to the top right-hand corner of the site and clock on the wallet icon. OpenSea will prompt you to connect to a wallet service of your choice. Once you’ve done that, your account is live!
After connecting a wallet, OpenSea will bring you to your account’s profile page where you can view any NFTs you’ve collected, created, or favorited on the site for potential purchase.
Your default account will be “Unnamed” until you navigate to the settings cog to the right of your profile picture to customize your account. OpenSea will hit you with an extra security prompt at this point, asking you “Sign” a quick agreement before you can continue. Once you’re through this prompt, you can customize your profile. Pick a username, pen a quick bio and add a secure email address to your account.
Now you’re ready to roll and can explore the OpenSea marketplace with your wallet full of currency, ready to make some offers on one-of-a-kind artworks.
How to buy NFTs on OpenSea
There are two options for sellers listing NFTs on OpenSea — they can set a fixed price for an NFT or set up an auction where any number of buyers can make offers on an NFT (they can also use both options, similar to eBay). We’re going to walk you through both types of purchases.
