Answers to commonly asked questions
What is an NFT?
A non-fungible token, or NFT, is a digital asset used to represent ownership of unique items whether digital or physical. Most commonly, it is used for digital collectibles. The ownership and transfer of an NFT is secured by a blockchain, which ensures that an NFT has only one owner at any given time, and that no one can change the token's ownership history.
They can take any form, images, videos, memes, digital paintings, patents or even tweets.
For an artist, an NFT allows them to sell a digital file as they would sell a physical work. For a buyer, the NFT allows them to support an artist, collect digital artworks, speculate on those works and potentially access physical rewards through that NFT.

What is a cryptocurrency?
A cryptocurrency is a digital currency or store of value that uses the blockchain, a ledger of digital transactions, to record and secure online transactions. Crypto currencies can be used to purchase goods and services. Currently, the most traded cryptocurrency is Bitcoin, followed by Ethereum.
What is a "digital wallet"?
A blockchain wallet is a digital storage that allows you to store and transact with cryptocurrencies. In its simplest form, a wallet consists of a public and a private key, which are cryptographically generated. To make the process of creating a wallet user-friendly, there are many software wallets, such as Metamask, that equip you with a wallet address, key vault, secure login and backup options to safely manage your digital assets. Metamask works as a browser extension and/or mobile application, and you can be up and running in minutes. For more information, see the Metamask FAQ. With a digital wallet, you hold the keys and are responsible for your assets. Your assets are as safe as your keys, so back them up and keep them safe! Remember, never, ever share your passphrase with anyone. It is for your eyes only.
What is Metamask?
A MetaMask wallet is a blockchain wallet used to store, buy and sell crypto-assets. We mandate the use of MetaMask on our site because we want to ensure that our customers are using a free and trusted wallet when they transact on our site and can connect to all of our Metaverse partners. Using MetaMask is also the only way to see and interact with your Metakicks sneakers after purchase. Think of your MetaMask wallet as a digital backpack that travels with you in the Metaverse. You use it to store your digital items like our Metakicks or digital currencies.
On which blockchain will Metakicks drop?
We use the Ethereum blockchain to launch Metakicks.
What is the Ethereum blockchain?
Ethereum is a decentralized, open-source blockchain with smart contract functionalities like NFTs. Ether (ETH) is the native cryptocurrency of the platform.
What are Gas fees for NFTs?
Gas is the unit that measures the amount of computational power required to perform a transaction on the blockchain. Akin to the gas you put in your car, this gas fuels all specific actions that you execute on the blockchain. For every transaction on the Ethereum blockchain, you have to perform a series of computational steps.
And each step needs resources to perform. And someone needs to pay for the use of these resources.
The miners won’t pay for these out of their pocket. So, it’s the end-users who have to pay for the use of resources to execute a transaction on the blockchain. This fee that you have to pay for the amount of gas that is used for your transaction is known as the gas fee.
Minting an NFT ?
Minting an NFT, like buying sneakers, is buying an NFT at the retail price at the time of release.
What will my NFT metakicks give me access to?

The lucky owners of these boxes will be able to choose to open them (or keep them closed) to discover which Metakicks is hidden inside.
In addition to your Metakicks, you have 10% chance of winning a physical pair from the list below, which you will receive directly at home in the size of your choice:
Metakicks holders of this first drop will have access to exclusive airdrops, physical giveaways, and premium Sneakmart features.
