How do you connect your existing crypto-wallets to your Uncut.FM account?
As a creator, some of your users might ask you this question. Here are all the details to answer. Feel free to use this post with your community if you want!
First of all, what is a crypto-wallet?
You may need to explain to your users what a crypto-wallet is. They may have bought some of your tokens on Uncut.FM without having their own crypto-wallet. If this is the case, Uncut.FM has created a crypto-wallet for them without them realizing it ;-)
This how I explained it to my own members:
I'm not going to get into a technical explanation but a "crypto wallet" allows you to receive, transmit and most importantly store cryptocurrencies and/or NFTs. It's basically like an online account. The wallet address is your account number, it is public and you can share it with anyone to make your transactions.
On the other hand, your private key (private key) is ULTRA CONFIDENTIAL, it's a bit like the PIN of your credit card. NEVER SHARE IT WITH ANYONE. NO ONE. EVER. Write it down somewhere and keep it secret. If someone has your key, they can take your wallet and everything in it.
Where is my crypto-wallet? What about my private key?
Some of you might have created an Uncut.FM account several months ago and at that time Uncut.FM did not allow you to use your own crypto-wallet. Uncut.FM created a crypto-wallet for each new user by default.
This wallet is non-custodial, meaning that you have full ownership (and responsibility) for it. You can find your wallet address at Uncut.FM if you click on the top left menu and you can copy/paste it by clicking on the icon to the right.
Now, I guess most of you never got the private key of this wallet created by Uncut.FM. That's okay, it's carefully secured but I still invite you to retrieve it once and for all.
⚠️ IMPORTANT: once again, this key is confidential and personal to you. Neither I, nor Uncut, have access to your private key. You should NEVER share it with anyone, including me.
The procedure is super simple:
Log in using the same email address you used on Uncut (you will receive a MagicLink, just like when you log in to Uncut).
Reveal your private key and copy it to a safe place.
How do I store my new NFTs in a different crypto-wallet than Uncut.FM?
Uncut.FM now supports MultiWallet connexions. This means, you can now connect multiple Wallets to your Uncut.FM account. So when you buy a new NFT, the system will ask you in which wallet you want to store the NFT you are about to buy.
The advantage of using your own wallet vs. the one automatically created by Uncut.FM is that you don't have to connect it with your MetaMask even if to be honest the procedure is not that complicated...
Everything is explained here. Follow steps 1 to 3 (forget step 4) https://support.uncut.fm/article/43-how-to-transfer-your-nft-to-metamask
Adding your existing Wallets to your Uncut account is very easy:
Click on Wallets in the top right menu on Uncut.FM ;
Click on Add Wallet ;
Scan the QR code with your camera or the MetaMask app, making sure you are in the Wallet you want to connect;
Confirm the connection in the MetaMask app (two messages: Connect + Sign);
Boom the new wallet is connected!
Wow, and ?
Now when you buy an NFT, Uncut.FM will ask you the destination wallet:
Regarding your access rights, they are preserved no matter in which wallet you keep your NFTs. Basically Uncut.FM checks the presence of the required NFT in all the wallets connected to your account.
