The AssetMantle team has been relentlessly working to provide you with the best possible NFT minting and trading experience possible. With the goal of providing you with a hands-on experience with the Mantleplace, the DevNet for the NFT trading platform has been released!
This will act as a playground for those that wish to experience the protocol as a platform user, token holder, or creator. By getting to know the AssetMantle DevNet, you will be able to get a good understanding of how the platform works and have a glance at some of its features.
This post is intended to give you a visual overview of the DevNet experience and get you started on what it takes to become a Mantler.
Sign up procedure
One of the benefits of using the MantlePlace is its streamlined Signup and Login procedures. Creating an account on the platform is extremely easy, as long as you have one of the following:
- A Keystore file for your AssetMantle Keplr wallet. This can be created directly from the login interface or you can use one you have previously created with your wallet.
- An Active Keplr wallet browser extension.
- A Ledger Hardware wallet.
For the sake of practicality, we will be using the Keplr extension to create an account today. Follow the instructions below to sign up:
Step 1: Click the Sign-Up button on the top of the website.
Step 2: Provide a username for your account. Make sure you remember this login info as it will allow you to connect to the platform at a later time.
Step 3: Choose the Keplr option to create your account and approve all the transaction requests on the app.
That’s it, once you’ve approved the transactions in your Keplr wallet, the platform will link your username to your wallet and you will be able to browse its features.
At your first login, you will notice that the platform provides you with 1000 $MNTL so you can test out the minting and trading features of the Mantleplace. Worth noting is that these $MNTL tokens are exclusive to the DevNet, are for testing purposes, and have no real value.
Now that you are logged onto the platform, the fun can finally begin!
