How to buy SolBettas and other SolAquaria collections

In this guide, we are going to explain how to buy SolBettas NFTs and other SolAquaria NFTs collections in just a few steps.

If this is the first time you want to buy an NFT, don’t worry, as always things are scary at first impact but, thanks to this guide, you’ll realize that it’s really simple and once done the first time, you’ll get much more confidence in doing it again šŸ˜‰

Solaquaria lives on the Solana ecosystem which is so far the most simple, fast, and cheap Blockchain available today.

Step 1 – Create a Solana Wallet

To operate on the Solana Blockchain you need to create a Wallet. We suggest using Phantom Wallet, it’s the simplest, cool, and also it displays your NFTs as well. All in one!

Since the visual tutorial is always better, here is an epic guide from CryptoWendy0, or alternatively, you can follow this tutorial, made by the Phantom’s team. 

If you already created a Metamask Wallet, the process is almost the same.

Please make sure to safely store your password and Secret Recovery Phrase somewhere.

Step 2 – Deposit some funds on your Phantom Wallet

Now that you have your Phantom Wallet, you are ready to deposit some funds in order to buy SolBettas NFTs.

Phantom Wallet offers two methods to deposit funds:

  1. Via a centralized exchange like Binance, Coinbase, FTX and others.
  2. Depositing funds directly via Moonpay

 

1. Deposit Funds via a centralized exchange 

To deposit funds via a centralized exchange you need an account on Binance, Coinbase, FTX or any others.

We suggest Binance since it’s the most used one and it’s really handy in case you might have other crypto needs in the future.

To set up a Binance account and then transfer funds to your Phantom Wallet, you can follow this video tutorial, which is the most complete and easy we could find on the web.

2. Deposit funds via Moonpay

Within your Phantom Wallet, you also have a handy way to deposit funds directly on your wallet, which is via Moonpay. If you are completely new, you may prefer using Moonpay over a centralized exchange because it’s the simplest and most straightforward for now to deposit funds with a credit/debit card.

To deposit funds via Moonpay follow these steps:

  1. Open your Phantom Wallet on your browser
  2. Click on “Deposit”
  3. Click on “Buy with Moonpay”

     4. You’ll see a popup where you can choose the amount of USD or SOL you want to deposit.

The process’s really simple. Just follow the screen and use your credit/debit card to deposit funds on your wallet.We suggest loading your Phantom Wallet with the right amount you need to buy a SolBetta, and, if you are planning to buy more NFTs, you may consider depositing more funds.Since the price of SOL may change during the process, it’s easier to indicate the right amount of SOL you want to deposit. In the screenshot above, you can see we choose to deposit 1 SOL.

Step 3 – Buy SolBettas on Marketplaces

Yes, we have finally arrived at the final step of this guide where you can actually buy your NFTs!

You set up your Phantom Wallet and you loaded some funds in it, now you are ready to make your purchase.

To do so, you can visit your preferred Solana NFTs marketplace to make the purchase. There are many marketplaces where SolAquaria is partnering with like Magic Eden, Digital Eyes, and many more.

As soon as we publish our collections, we’ll update the list of supported marketplaces.

How to buy NFTs on Magic Eden

We’ll take into consideration in this tutorial the Magic Eden marketplace which is by far, the most used one on the Solana ecosystem.

All marketplace have almost the same process, so don’t worry, if you choose a different marketplace, you’ll find the process almost the same.

1. Connect your Wallet to Magic Eden

Once you click on the button “Connect” follow the screen and in a couple of clicks you are in!

2.Land on SolBetta or any other SolAquaria collection page and choose the NFT you want to buy
