Purchasing Moon’s Lunar Land with Metamask — A Complete Guide

Moon’s globe is now live and we’re expecting our community to continue growing at incredible pace. If you need some tips on how to use the globe, this article will serve as a complete guide to purchasing Moon’s land NFTs using Metamask.

Setting up Metamask

To begin, you will need to create a Metamask account. You will need the Metamask browser extension to make the purchase, and the Play Store Metamask App to see your NFTs in your wallet (optional).

Install the extension to your browser.

Create an account, follow the sign-up process and remember to save your backup keys.

You should now see your wallet as shown in the screenshot above.

You will now need to connect Metamask to the Binance Smart Chain network.

Click on the colorful circle in the top-right corner to open the menu and click on Settings.

Now, scroll down and click on Networks.

Then, click on “Add Network”.

A new tab will open, and you will see the following screen:

Enter the following information:

Network Name: Binance Smart Chain

New RPC URL: https://bsc-dataseed.binance.org

Chain ID: 56

Currency Symbol (optional): BNB

Block Explorer URL (optional): http://bscscan.com

Click Save.

Congratulations, you have successfully added the BSC network to your Metamask!

You can switch between networks by clicking on the dropdown menu as shown in the image above.

You will now need to fund the Metamask account using any method you prefer (from an exchange or another wallet).

NOTE: If purchasing land with USDT or USDC, make sure to have at least a minimal amount of BNB in your Metamask to cover the BEP20 transaction fees!

Purchasing Moon’s Lunar Land

After completing all of the steps listed above, head to our marketplace:

https://globe.moon.ws/

NOTE: Currently the store can only be accessed from Desktop. If you’re experiencing lag, make sure to enable Hardware Acceleration in your browser settings.

When it loads, you will see Moon’s globe.

Log in with your Metamask by clicking LOG IN at the top of the screen.

Click Log In

A Metamask window will pop up, authorize the connection and you will be logged in.

Find the HEX you want to purchase. Currently-available HEXS are colored teal (light blue). Click on them to see their resources and prices.

Selecting a HEX

After you decide which HEX you want to purchase, click “Add to Cart”.

Shopping Cart

Your shopping cart will appear on the right-hand side. Click “Place Order” to reserve your HEXs and start the payment process.

Order Placed, HEX Reserved

Select the currency you wish to pay with. Every currency works the same way.

Metamask automatically prepares the transaction and a new window pops up.

Metamask Payment Screen

Click “Confirm”

If the payment is successful, the NFT minting process starts automatically.

To see if your NFT has arrived, go to https://bscscan.com/ and paste your Metamask wallet address into the search bar.

BSCSCAN Search Bar

Once it finds your wallet, click on Erc721 tokens.

The NFT on BSCSCAN

Usually, purchased NFTs show up on BSCSCAN in less than 15 minutes.

Congratulations, you have successfully purchased Moon’s lunar NFT land!

Adding the NFT to Metamask

This step is optional — you now have the NFTs in your wallet, but they’re not visible yet.

To make them show up, you must use the Metamask app — it will not work on the browser extension!

LINK your Metamask browser extension wallet to the Metamask App (Don’t create a new account!), select “NFTs” and select “Import NFTs”.

Click on “Import NFTs”

The following screen will appear:

Importing an NFT

Add the following contract address in the “Address” section:

0x21f18e81003240d24b7f593d33bb01f00ecab7f9

Add the Token decimal you see on BSCSCAN. (0 in this example, yours will be different)

Click “Add Custom Token” and you’re done! Your NFTs will now appear under the NFT section of the Metamask App.

If you need help or support, the best place to ask is the Moon Discord Server.
