There are three essentials you'll need in place to open your account to buy or sell NFT's on Refinable, let's get started.

1. Digital Currency (BNB)

You can get BNB, the digital currency that fuels transactions on the Binance Smart Chain, from a digital currency exchange like Binance. You will need BNB to pay for gas fees whenever you're transacting on Refinable (minting, selling, purchasing)

Now that you have BNB, let's get a wallet.

2. Crypto Wallet

A crypto wallet stores your tokens and processes transactions on the blockchain. A unique wallet address will be generated and you will use this address to complete transactions.

Why do you need a wallet before buying and selling on Refinable? Refinable itself is another tool you use to interact with the blockchain. We never take possession of your assets or store your NFTs. Instead, we provide a system for peer to peer exchanges. Since you’ll be using Refinable to interact directly with others on the blockchain, you’ll need a wallet to help you turn your actions in the marketplace into transactions on the blockchain.

Refinable is integrated with a big variety of wallets, the most popular ones being:
