Are you sure you're ready to mint your Yat?
Minting Yats carries an additional cost.
Currently, Yats can be minted on Ethereum Mainnet only. Yats On the ETH network, Gas fees may be more than a Yat is worth. Gas fees can vary wildly depending on how busy the network is and can be as little as just about $5 and as much as $50. The Ethereum network charges gas fees to prevent bad actors from spamming the network, thereby securing the network.
Gas / Approximate Dollars
20 / $15
35 / $25
50 / $40
65 / $50
Minting on the Polygon (AKA Matic) network is not supported right now but will be available in the near future though we do not have an ETA. We anticipate that this will drastically cut down on the fees associated with minting. Note that Polygon is a different network on the Metamask wallet.
There are three dots in the upper right-hand corner on your Yat Dashboard, next to your Yat's links. Clicking on the three dots opens a drop-down menu that allows you to transfer or mint your Yat. Click on "Mint this Yat" and a window will open asking you to link your MetaMask wallet to Yat (if you have not yet) or log in and confirm that your MetaMask wallet is connected and you are ready to continue.
You can now name the digital asset that you are creating, and you will be required to check an "Are you Sure" box to continue. Make sure that your name is descriptive and that you are sure of the name. Much like your visualization, you cannot change your NFT's name once it has been inputed.
Once you have selected your digital assets name and confirmed it, you can click "Mint my Yat." This will open your Metamask wallet and show you the cost in dollars associated with minting.
You can adjust the amount of Gas used by clicking "EDIT," but if you adjust it too low, it is possible your Yat will not get minted for a long time and may even fail.
PLEASE NOTE: Your transaction needs to be minted within 10 minutes, or else it may fail. If it fails, the gas fees you spent will be lost, and Yat will not be able to refund you. Keep this in mind when setting your Gas amount.
