NFT stands for “non-fungible token.” It is a unique, identifiable digital asset stored on the blockchain. Think of it as a digital trading card. Ownership of an NFT is easily and uniquely verifiable due to its public listing on the blockchain.
- Setup Wallet – You will need MetaMask (or a preferred alternative digital wallet) to mint a PokerGO Genesis NFT. Install the chrome extension or download the mobile app to begin.
- Buy ETH – In order to purchase a PokerGO NFT you will need enough ETH to cover the cost of mint + a small transaction fee (known as “gas fee”) to the Ethereum network. Gas typically costs less than .01 ETH. You can directly add funds to your MetaMask wallet on our platform or use a popular exchange like Coinbase, or Gemini to acquire a small amount of ETH.
- Load Wallet – Once ETH is acquired, transfer to your MetaMask wallet. Please follow their guides for sending ETH to your wallet address (starts with “0x”). Once the funds appear in MetaMask wallet, you are ready to mint!
Minting refers to the process of tokenizing a digital file, in this case a PokerGO NFT, and publishing it on the blockchain. Once an NFT is minted, ownership can be verified, thus the NFT can be bought, sold, or traded in a secondary marketplace like NFT Stadium and Opensea.
If you are successfully added to the waitlist, the NFTs will be available to mint for .X ETH (plus gas fee) on the our site. After hitting the mint button, you will be prompted to connect your MetaMask wallet to the website. Sign the transaction, and the NFT will then be transferred to your wallet. Note that you must have ETH loaded onto the wallet in order to complete the transaction.
NFT Stadium deploys Fiat on-Ramps via Wyre. You can connect your wallet, and click on “My Wallet” to add funds.
There are different reasons for transactions to fail, including:
- Insufficient funds
- The banking institution or credit card company does not allow crypto purchases
- Local laws prevent Wyre from operating in your area
- Bank authorization code failure
Due to banking privacy laws, we may not know the exact cause. However, you can follow these steps to help your next transaction attempt succeed:
Wait 1-2 days before trying again.
If you’re purchasing crypto for the first time, or if you’re using a new platform to purchase crypto, your financial institution might flag this transaction for security reasons. We know how anxious our users are to join the crypto movement, but waiting a few days before retrying the transaction is often the best step to take when your first attempt fails.
Check the current geographic restrictions on Wyre.
Due to local licensing restrictions in some areas around the world, we may not yet be operational in your state or country.
Check with your bank-issued card to see if you have any holds/blocks for cryptocurrency transactions.
Your financial institution values your security, and you may have holds or blocks in place for certain types of transactions. If your transaction attempt fails, we recommend that you reach out to your bank or credit card company to remove any blocks and inform them that you are attempting an authorized transaction.
Apple Cash Cards and Prepaid Cards are not accepted.
At the moment, we are not able to process payments from prepaid cards like Apple Cash Cards, Cashapp, Transferwise, Revolut, N26, and others.
Debit cards issued by Visa or MasterCard only.
We hope to expand our payment processing services to accept other card types, but currently, Visa and MasterCard are the only options for making a debit card payment.
Review your Card billing info.
It’s important to keep your billing information updated! If you’ve moved recently, it’s possible that you may be entering a new billing address before it has been updated with your financial institution. Be sure to check with your bank to ensure your records are up to date!
Cards connected to Business accounts not allowed.
For security reasons, please make sure that your payment method is linked to a personal card or bank account.
PO BOX address not accepted.
To verify your account/payment method, a physical street address is required.
You will need to use a mobile phone # and not a Landline/VOIP #.
In order to complete a transaction with Wyre, you must use a mobile phone number. Landline, VOIP, Google Voice, and prepaid phone numbers are not accepted.
Use a different device to complete the transaction (smart phone, laptop/PC, tablet, etc.).
If you’re having difficulties completing a transaction, using a different device may help. Laptops and desktop PCs are often the best options for crypto transactions.
Clear your browser history/cache and cookies.
Clearing your browser history is a good way to refresh your computer before attempting a new transaction.
Once the NFT has been minted, you will be able to see your NFT in your wallet and on NFT Stadium as well as other Ethereum marketplaces (such as Opensea). All you need to do is connect your wallet to verify ownership.
Follow us on Twitter, join the discord, and participate. There will be ample opportunities and giveaways to win Whitelist ahead of launch. We will also be rewarding active community members with Whitelist roles. Our focus is organically building a community of poker fans.
Safely store your wallet’s “Secret Recovery Phrase.” Do not share this phrase with anyone! It is recommended not to store this phrase digitally. Without your recovery phrase, your wallet and assets may be unobtainable. PokerGO and NFT Stadium will NEVER ask for you to provide your recovery phrase.
You can list the PokerGO NFT on secondary markets such as NFT Stadium or other Ethereum-based NFT marketplaces. Keep in mind that a percentage of each PokerGO NFT sale will include a small royalty fee. This is the case for all NFT projects, which decide on royalty percentage.
