How To Create Your Wax Cloud Wallet to House Your NFTs

By PapaT | W.T.NFTs | 21 Oct 2020


Hey NFT fans!

In this quick hit I’m going to show you how to quickly and effortlessly create an online wallet in order to store, show off, trade, or sell your NFTs. There are several wallets out there, but I will be highlighting how to create your very own free and secure Wax Cloud Wallet to store your NFTs in this edition. A more in depth look will be coming up in the future. 

For starters, go to the Wax Cloud Wallet website: https://all-access.wax.io/

(Note: I use my mobile device for the vast majority of my NFT hunting, so it may appear slightly different if your viewing on a computer, but not likely.)

Wax Wallet Home Page

Here we have an image of the Wax home page. In order to sign up you will need to enter your email, choose the password you would like, and then solve a simple CAPTCHA. Once you accomplish those tasks, click on the “Sign Up” button. Make sure to check your email and click on the link that was sent to you in order to verify and activate your account. You can also choose to sign up using any of the social media platforms shown on the homepage.

After verifying your email, go back and log in to the Wax Cloud Wallet website. Agree to the terms of service and acknowledge you are over 18 yrs old. That’s it! Now we can proceed to your newly minted wallet just for you!

Your Wax Wallet & Address

Highlighted above in the picture, you will find your Wax Wallet address. This is a public address, so no need to worry about giving it out to people/companies.

NEVER SHARE YOUR PASSWORD OR PRIVATE KEY WITH ANYONE!!! I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH!!!! If someone reaches out to you first and asks for anything besides your public address, please please please do not fall for the scam. Even if they say they are from the company or an admin. 

Also on this main screen you will find options to purchase WAX, which is one of the most popular cryptocurrencies being used to purchase NFTs at the moment. These payments are processed through MoonPay and Simplex. (Note: as of the time of this writing these option is not available to those in the United States unfortunately - hopefully that changes very soon).

You may also be able to purchase WAX at these other locations, but I have not personally tried them out. Others have had success though and recommended these options to me:

Bittrex

Coin Gecko

Newdex

Ok, so now you have your wallet. You may or may not have WAX in your account. Now what? You can explore current NFTs that are for sale using WAX on Atomic Hub

Atomic Hub

Find something you like? You can buy it or even offer a trade to the token holder (hodler?) once you get your collection rolling. You can also go find your favorite NFT companies on social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Discord, & Telegram. Giveaways and promotions are regularly done as well, including here on Publish0x. I will be highlighting some of my favorite platforms and companies in the coming weeks so stay tuned! In the meantime, get exploring and see what you like!

What Your Wallet Will Look Like After Acquiring Assets

Now that you’ve had the chance to acquire some assets, your screen will look something like the picture above. Well, hopefully with a lot more WAX!! I went on a recent spending spree, watch out you probably will too once you catch the bug! You will see two very important features in the picture above as well:

1. I highlighted the Show All button so you can see all of your beautiful NFTs in gallery mode. 

2. You probably noticed the amazing Oxygen NFT token in the picture. Make sure to check out the articles written by the very talented writer Robertoit and his recently verified Periodic Elements project showcased here on PublishOx through his several posts. He may even have a giveaway or two running at the moment if your quick enough!

Thanks and happy hunting!
