Buying NFTs on OpenSea

Before you can buy anything, you’ll first need to convert your ETH to Wrapped ETH (wETH). The reason for wrapping ETH is interoperability issues.

We’ll cover wETH in future articles. For now, just know that wETH is an ERC-20 token pegged to ETH.

The good news is you don’t have to go to a centralized exchange or a DEX to convert between ETH and wETH. You can perform this operation right.

Once you have your wETH, you can pick an NFT and place your bid. You can follow the auction, and just like on eBay, if you’re the highest bidder at the auction’s end, you get the NFT. 

OpenSea will handle the transaction from here and transfer the funds and NFTs. If you set up an email in your account settings, It will notify you that you won the auction. 


To conclude Opensea is the largest NFT marketplace on which creating and selling NFTs is quite easy, other Nft Marketplaces are Rarible, Axie Marketplace, NBA Top Shot Marketplace, and SuperRare. Recently Opensea received a funding of $300 Million and got valued at 13.3 billion USD.
