Mac Of All Trades has an exciting new market for customers to learn about — NFTs! Now, you can explore, collect and sell NFTs with us today. As the purchaser, you receive both the image and an unlockable coupon code for one-time use. We just recently started accepting cryptocurrency as a form of payment on our website too!
If you're unfamiliar with NFTs and interested in learning more, we provide all the information you need below, including what NFTs are, their purpose, whether they're limited, who can buy them, how to get started and where you can learn more about buying tech with NFTs and crypto.
What Are NFTs?
A non-fungible token (NFT) is a unique item with its own value. In contrast, a fungible item is interchangeable with another identical item and can be exchanged for the same value, such as a dollar bill. You can trade a $5 dollar bill with a friend and you'll both still have $5.
The same is not possible with an NFT. For example, you would not simply be able to trade your car for your friend's and retain the same value, even if they're the same make and model. The value of each individual car is impacted by its number of miles and accident history. NFTs use blockchain technology, which is basically a large, public digital record.
What Do I Need to Get Started?
Once an NFT is created, it can be traded, listed for sale on a marketplace or given away for free. While some marketplaces accept a credit card payment for NFTs, others may require cryptocurrency for the purchase. Regardless, you'll want to have a crypto wallet to buy NFTs on any platform.
What Is a Crypto Wallet?
Though cryptocurrency is still relatively new, it can be used to purchase a wide variety of services and goods. To use cryptocurrency to buy a product, you first need a crypto wallet.
Crypto wallets act like an interface to access your crypto, storing the keys to your NFTs after your purchase. Your crypto wallet has a public key for transactions, which functions like an email address. The keys you use to access your crypto are known as your private keys. There are many crypto wallets available, and they each offer different features. While some are compatible with nearly every cryptocurrency, others only work with a few, so be sure to pick the wallet best for your needs.
You can install your wallet on a computer or mobile device. A crypto wallet can be stored offline or online, though offline storage tends to be recommended, as offline storage is considered more secure. After you purchase or receive the NFT in a transfer, it appears in your crypto wallet.
Is Crypto a Safe Form of Payment?
Yes, crypto is a safe form of payment. One of the reasons cryptocurrency was created was so consumers could use it to make anonymous payments. This anonymity is possible because cryptocurrency is decentralized, and you are not required to provide user information. Keep in mind that if you allow the information regarding your wallet address to be accessible, your cryptocurrency becomes pseudonymous rather than completely anonymous.
Are the NFTs Affiliated With Apple?
No, NFTs are not affiliated with Apple, though Mac Of All Trades does sell genuine second-hand Apple products. All products are verified as authentic and put through rigorous testing to ensure you receive a fully functional device.
