Frequently Asked Questions
What are NFTs?
NFT stands for 'non-fungible token' which is a unique token registered on a blockchain or DLT (decentralised ledger technology) like Hedera Hashgraph. Unlike cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, HBAR or ETH that are interchangeable, NFTs are not interchangeable with each other. NFTs are effectively certificates of ownership and authenticity which cannot be faked or duplicated. Whilst they are often linked to a specific digital asset or real world asset, they do not necessarily include any intellectual property rights unless this is specified.
Who can mint and sell NFTs on GoMint?
Our tokenization engine on Hedera mainnet is only available by invitation. We may invite new content creators over the coming weeks. To be considered, please email our CMO Peter, including a link to your portfolio or your existing website. We will need to ensure that you have the right to tokenize the relevant assets, and agree terms with you, such as listing fees and commissions.
Whilst I wait to be approved, can I use your testnet?
Yes sure. Please follow this link to our testnet. There is also a link on that page for you to provide any feedback.
How do I login to GoMint?
You can use our marketplace without logging in but if so then we recommend you complete your purchase within that browser session. If you wish to login, then when you first access our gallery you will be asked to send 0.01HBAR to our account so that we can link your device and browser session to your Hedera account and you will be given a GoMint account of the same number. When you make purchases, these can be funded from your Hedera account (which would now be linked to that device and browser) or you can choose to pay with PayPal instead. If you login again using a different device or browser, you will currently need to re-link your Hedera account to your GoMint account. We are implementing more login features, such as email/password, as we develop our platform.
I don't have any HBAR or a Hedera account yet. Can I still buy NFTs from GoMint?
Yes you don't need a Hedera account or HBARs to purchase NFTs from GoMint. You can browse the GoMint gallery at https://gomint.me/gallery and click 'marketplace' to see NFTs available for sale. Then complete the purchase and checkout process using your PayPal account to pay. We will then hold the Tokens in temporary escrow for you until you open a Hedera account at which point you can link your GoMint account with your new Hedera account and transfer the tokens to your wallet. Please ensure you use a wallet that supports Hedera Token Service tokens though.
I don’t have a Hedera wallet yet. Can GoMint hold my tokens for me?
We can hold your tokens temporarily in our escrow. This is where all tokens sit until they are associated to a Hedera account and transferred to that account through a supported wallet. We currently do not intend to provide a long term escrow service.
How do I transfer my Tokens to my own private wallet?
Not all Hedera wallets currently support tokens minted on Hedera Token Service - for example, we are aware that Ledger or other hardware wallets do not support HTS tokens. However, MyHbarWallet and Dode Cane Wallet do both support HTS tokens. Once you have a supported wallet, you then need to associate the tokens (that you wish to purchase or have purchased) to your wallet (that supports HTS tokens). We have created some instructions to assist with this process, using MyHbarWallet here and a short video here using our free BASIL token as the example for educational purposes only.
I have a transaction issue that I don't think is covered in the above FAQs. Can you help me?
You have a couple of options here. You can complete our GoMint POC Help Form or you can drop us a message on Telegram at GoMint Customer Service. Alternatively, you can email us. Although the vast majority of purchases have been processed smoothly, there have been a few bugs or user errors that have caused a transaction to fail, which is normal for a POC. In all cases, these will be investigated and resolved. We are grateful to the community for your support and patience.
What type of assets can be recorded as an asset on GoMint?
On GoMint, approved content creators can mint NFTs representing any digital asset - a digital artwork, photograph, video clip (including YouTube and TikTok videos). The only requirement is that you own (or have other rights to) the copyright and any other intellectual property rights in the asset, and you have not previously created or sold an NFT relating to that asset on any platform.
Can I use GoMint to mint and sell NFTs relating to real world assets?
Not currently. However, at a later stage in our roadmap, we do intend to add functionality to mint and sell NFTs for other asset classes, such as real estate, paintings, antiques, rare cars and commodities, so long as there is a way to ensure provenance and ownership. However, initially these are likely to be single unique tokens per asset as fractionalised NFTs can present additional challenges from a regulatory and securities law perspective. If you wish to discuss this further and register your details with us, please email Richard our CCO.
How do I know if the NFT has been properly recorded?
Once you create the NFT, you will be able to click a link to see the NFT account recorded on the Hedera Hashgraph platform via a third party explorer such as Kabuto or Dragonglass. We will also send you a link.
What about collectibles? Are these also recorded as individual tokens?
Yes. Each edition of a collectible series has a unique serial number registered on Hedera so that you can check which edition you own. Each one is an individual token.
What does it cost to create and mint an NFT on GoMint?
We are not currently charging minting fees; but instead are charging commissions on sales. However, if we decide to charge minting fees, as an alternative to or in combination with commissions, we will publish these on our website and reseve the right to update these from time to time. These fees include any costs of the underlying Hedera Hashgraph DLT network.
Do you charge commissions to sell NFTs through the GoMint marketplace?
We did not charge commissions whilst we were testing the platform during our early proof of concept period. However, we have now started to charge commissions on sales via our tokenisation application and primary marketplace. We also plan a secondary marketplace which will probably be free to list existing minted NFTs for sale, but will involve the payment of a commission on any sale. We publish our commission structure on our website and reserve the right to update this from time to time.
I bought some NFTs on GoMint. Do you have a resale or secondary marketplace so I can sell one of them?
GoMint currently only provides functionality for the original content creator (or rights owner) to sell NFTs in the work. We are planning a secondary marketplace allowing NFT-owners to promote and sell their existing minted NFTs to other users. We will announce this in advance of launch.
How environmentally friendly is GoMint and the underlying Hedera DLT network?
As Hedera does not use electricity-heavy 'proof of work' to achieve consensus, Hedera is vastly better for the environment than any blockchain, such as Ethereum. By way of example, the carbon footprint to create an NFT on Ethereum is around 48kg of CO2, and during the NFT's lifecycle (including sales and transfer transactions) this footprint can increase to 211kg of CO2, which is equivalent to an average individual's power consumption for two weeks, or driving for 500km, or a flight from London to Rome. The same NFT on Hedera would have a carbon footprint which is around 50,000 times less impactful. We are finding that artists and content creators are increasingly turning to solutions such as Hedera, and to GoMint specifically, due to environmental concerns related to blockchain platforms, and their wish to maintain their ecological credentials.
Does GoMint have its own token? I heard you might be issuing a MINT token?
Currently, GoMint does not have its own platform token. You can transact on GoMint using HBARs or through PayPal. However, we do plan to launch our own fungible utility token, tentatively called MINT, that would be earned through usage of our platform and could be used to receive various benefits, such as discounts and early access to new NFT drops. We will not directly offer to sell tokens to anyone so if you are contacted by an individual purporting to represent GoMint or any of the team, please report this to us immediately and do not respond. We will announce any token offering on our website and any interaction with the community will be through the website or our official Telegram channels.
I love what you guys are building. Can I invest in GoMint, the company?
We are currently boot-strapping the company but may decide to sell equity to angel investors or venture capitalists as part of an early-stage funding round to support future development. If you are interested in this, then please email Richard our CCO from your official company email account and kindly provide some information about your investment strategy.
