how to buy a CNFT
Assuming you have a Cardano wallet with ADA in it, you can buy NFTs by following the creator's instruction on the relevant drop site.
It will look something like:
send 'X' amount of ADA to this 'Cardano wallet address'.
Before you hit SEND make sure you:
1. Are sending from a Cardano wallet.
Anything sent from an exchange will be lost for all eternity.
2. Are certain that these NFTs are legit and have the same policy ID mentioned by the creator.
3. Confirm the amount of ADA and address are correct because you will not be refunded if sent to the wrong address.
You can also buy from Cardano Marketplaces
how to avoid a fake CNFT
Fakes abound all around the CNFT and NFT spaces in general.
So the best way to avoid is by checking the policy ID of any CNFT you are looking to buy.
Since asset names are not unique and can be easily duplicated, Cardano NFTs need to be identified by the policy ID.
This ID is unique and attached permanently to the asset. The policy ID stems from a policy script that defines characteristics such as who can mint tokens and when those actions can be made.
Many NFT projects make the policy ID of their NFTs publicly available, so anyone can differentiate fraudulent/duplicate NFTs from the original.
