NFTs

NFT stands for Non-Fungible Token. “Non-fungible” more or less means that it’s unique and can’t be replaced with something else. For example, a bitcoin is fungible — trade one for another bitcoin, and you’ll have exactly the same thing. A one-of-a-kind trading card, however, is non-fungible. If you traded it for a different card, you’d have something completely different [1].

To simply put it, it’s something unique that you own and can prove that you own thanks to the private/public key cryptography nature of the crypto wallets.

MetaMask

Going forward with minting a Toby The Goat

Once you have enough Ether in your MetaMask wallet you’re all set for minting our TTG NFTs. But don’t rush just yet to mint NFTs 🙌 Check our website to see if it’s open. We are doing a Phase 1 mint to raise money to invest in promoting the project worldwide and will later open a Phase 2 mint. Check our social media to see where were at with the project. Don’t worry about trying to mint an NFT and getting a failed transaction because the minting is closed, our website will only let you mint if minting is open.

What do I need to do to reveal the art?

Nothing. The art will reveal itself starting on December 25th 15:00 UTC +0. At that moment we will release the metadata of all the goats minted and everyone will see the art and traits of the TTGs they own.

That was long…

We didn’t want to make a very extensive story, but at the same time we needed to pass enough information so everyone knows how to proceed to mint our TTGs. If you feel like we have left out important information or you have further doubts drop us a message on our Discord server or send us as email to info@tobythegoat.io
