OpenSea is a marketplace for digital items called non-fungible tokens, or NFTs for short. NFTs can take many forms, such as digital art, audio files, or event tickets. Some NFTs can be redeemed for physical items like sneakers, and others can be used within an online game. NFTs can take on so many unique forms that in these Getting Started articles, we’ll keep it simple and refer to NFTs as “items.”
Whether you came here to buy an item, participate in a drop, or just see what it’s all about, we’re glad you’re here!
If you don’t have an OpenSea account, you can still browse popular NFT collections, trending collections, and the latest drops. To get the most out of OpenSea, the next step is to create an account, which is tied directly to your wallet.
