NFT ON THE POLYGON AND ETHEREUM BLOCKCHAIN
"Super Lazy Minting" allows you to complete the payment process via the MISA website – just like in any other online store. After the purchase, you need to connect your MetaMask wallet to your MISA account. You just have to click 'sign' in the MetaMask pop-up window, and your NFT will be minted and transferred to your MetaMask wallet right away.
Go to MetaMask.io and select from Android or iOS for mobile application and Chrome or Firefox for desktop. It is very important to make sure to use Google Chrome or Firefox. You can also go directly to the Chrome store, Google Play store, or Apple App Store. Make sure you secure you PASSWORD and your SECRET RECOVERY PHRASE. Don't screenshot it. Write it down and keep it in a safe place. Once lost or shared with another person (NOBODY should ever ask you for it) all your assets are at risk and you have no chance of getting them back.
Please refer to this video for step-by-step instructions.
Shortly after your purchase you will receive two separate emails. The first one is the order confirmation of your NFT and the second one contains information on how to claim your NFT. Please follow the instructions in the second email to claim your NFT to your MetaMask wallet. Please make sure to check your spam folder.
You can see your NFTs in the account section on misa.art or, if you connect your wallet from the Chrome extension to any marketplace that supports MetaMask.

You can use any marketplace that supports the respective blockchains. Simply connect your wallet and list your NFT for sale.
NFT ON THE FLOW BLOCKCHAIN
After purchasing your NFT be sure to immediately claim your NFT to your own wallet. Log into your account here with the email address you provided at checkout and press claim. If you need assistance with how to set up your own wallet you can check here.
Blocto is just an example of a Flow-based wallet. Please refer to your own research.
The NFT is assigned to a wallet after checkout. Since we cannot provide a custodial wallet, please make sure to claim it immediately to your own Flow-based wallet to complete the process. Log in to your MISA wallet here, using the same email address you used to make the purchase and press claim.
If you need any further assistance, please join our Discord or send an email with your inquiry to email@example.com.
You will be able to share it, gift it (through your own wallet) or place it for sale here. Other trading options on Rarible and Blocto Bay are expected to be available to misa.art collectors shortly.
You can transfer your NFT to the appropriate email address by accessing your NFT from your wallet and selecting the TRANSFER ITEM button. If you can no longer access the email you checked out with please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your NFT is registered on the Flow blockchain.
You can transfer your NFT to any Flow-based wallet. Metamask is an ethereal based wallet and therefore cannot be used to store your NFT.
Flow blockchain runs on the proof-of-stake model, which dramatically reduces the potential energy consumed by cryptocurrency mining. It runs mostly on nodes operated by carbon free energy. Flow is able to use so much less energy because it is secured by the stake (i.e. financial value) the operators lock up, instead of the energy they burn. Flow uses less than 1 GWh of power/year. Ethereum uses thousands of times more energy at ~8TWh/year. NFTs built on Flow have less than 1/1000th the environmental footprint as NFTs on ethereum.
You can download your NFT by right-clicking on the media and selecting SAVE AS.
You can place your NFT for sale on the MINT NFT Marketplace. With every secondary market sale the seller receives 90%, the remaining 10% cover the Artist's Resale Right and service charges.
