Get started in three steps

Are you looking to join the world of NFTs and the Web3 ecosystem? Welcome to Gamma, the open marketplace for Bitcoin NFTs, powered by Stacks. Get started in just a few minutes.

 

1. Set up a wallet

You'll first need a Stacks wallet: that's how you'll engage in Web3 and store all of your assets and data. You can take your wallet and its things with you to whatever Stacks app you're using! 

On Gamma, you can use Hiro or Xverse wallet.

 

Hiro wallet

Browser extension
Chrome, Firefox, or Brave

 

Xverse wallet 

Browser extension or mobile app
Chrome, Brave, iOS, Android

 

2. Buy STX

Now that you have a wallet, you have a STX address and all you need is the $STX currency!

You can purchase STX on exchanges such as Coinbase, Kraken, and KuCoin. You can also choose to buy STX with a credit or debit card from within the Hiro or Xverse wallet.

Another option is to use a non-exchange method such as SimpleSwap.io or LNSwap.org which allows you to exchange other cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, for STX.

 

3. Connect wallet to Gamma

Go to gamma.io and click "Connect wallet" in the top right corner. Click Stacks wallet and your wallet extension will prompt you to choose an account to connect. That's it! 

Now you can mint recently released collections on gamma.io, explore our create portal to launch your own collection, or buy NFTs on the marketplace, it's that simple! 

 

What to do next?

  1. Buy a .btc domain
    Get your decentralized identity and use it to transfer NFTs and view your profile and someone else's!
  2. Set up your profile
    Change your avatar, update your description and add your social links.
  3. Buy your first NFT
    Time to start collecting!

If you have several STX addresses and/or ETH addresses you can also combine your profiles.
