How To Avoid Scams When Minting NFTs

You’ll need to keep your wits about you because, during the mint, scammers will do all they can to cash in on the frenzied activity to trick you. They’ll do things like using the project creator’s avatar to post their own wallet address in the chat channel or direct message you and try to get you to mint on a fake website that appears to be identical to the real one. To be safe it’s always best practice to double-check the URL provided if the mint is taking place on a website, and turn off your DMs in Discord as the moderators will never direct message you with a special mint price or giveaway. If you’ve successfully avoided the scammers, you’ll need to be quick with the mint or you’ll likely miss out if it’s a popular project. Using numerous wallets might occasionally be beneficial in this situation.
