How to Buy NFT on World’s Largest Platform OpenSea.io Using Most Popular Wallet MetaMask in 2022?

To Buy NFT you will require a wallet, where you will keep Ethereum to pay for the NFT and a Platform where you will buy and sell these NFT. I prefer Opensea.io as a platform and MetaMask as wallet to store my cryptocurrency.

Opensea.io

The reason why I prefer OpenSea.io and MetaMask to buy NFt, because OpenSea.io is the first and world’s largest platform to Buy and Sell NFT. It is most popular platform for NFT’s and have humongous listings, so you are getting more options to choose. I prefer Metamask again the reason is its the most popular wallet around. The reason of not trying new ones is that I have seen most of the platforms got vanished after few yrs and new platforms have trust issues as well. Trust plays important role when this whole technology(web3.0) is new.
