Make and Sell Interactive NFT Art and Apps!

ZIM NFT for JavaScript HTML Canvas Coding

NFT stands for Non-Fungible Token which means that ownership of something such as digital art can be stored on the "blockchain" and not messed with. The art can be sold and re-sold for crypto currency and a percentage of each sale goes to the creator. All this is automated.

CryptoPunks NFT

This is an amazing opportunity for digital creators and collectors. Beeple's Art sold for $69 Million. Crypto Punks are selling for Millions and could have been made with ZIM.

It is easy to make a ZIM NFT once you have a wallet and some Tezos. Below are the steps to make a ZIM NFT followed by the steps to get a wallet. We will call what you are making a Zapp - this can be a ZIM game, art, puzzle, app, etc.

Making a ZIM Interactive NFT
  1. make a folder to store your Zapp
  2. call your starting page index.html
  3. code your Zapp like usual (in FIT, FILL or FULL) but...
  4. there are to be NO outside links or data calls
  5. so include local images, ZIM and supporting libraries
  6. add a meta tag with property="og:image" content="yourpromo.jpg"
  7. see the ZIM NFT source or here is a ZIP of the template
  8. ZIP the folder and upload to Teia Art under > OBJKT (mint)
  9. decide how many editions to mint and royalties to collect
  10. pay about $0.25 from your wallet to mint the NFT OBJKT
Getting a Wallet and Tezos
  1. get a Kukai Wallet (free and easy)
  2. ask Dr Abstract on Slack to send you some Tezos
  3. provide your wallet address (this is seriously the easiest way)
  4. but if you want enough crypto to collect art then...
  5. buy Bitcoin, for example $100 - art is often a couple dollars
  6. how you buy Bitcoin is different in each Country
  7. for instance, in Canada, use Newton
  8. trade Bitcoin for Tezos (XTZ) on an exchange such as Binance
  9. transfer Tezos to Kukai wallet. If on Binance...
  10. go to Wallet > Fiat and Spot > find XTZ > Withdraw to Kukai ID


Dr Abstract has minted 100 editions of ZIM NFT which is ZIM captured in crypto on the Interplanetary File System. It is at once a magnificent collectible and a prototype for making NFTs with the framework.
