GETTING STARTED WITH THE WORLD’S BEST PFP NFT BUILDER!

In our Getting Started guide you’ll find all the information you’ll need to create your very own Flovatar masterpiece, but first up here’s some background info on Flovatar and what makes us different from every other NFT project.

The Basics

WHAT IS A PFP NFT?

Personal Profile Picture (PFP) is the thing someone uploads when using something like TikTok, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Profile Pictures are a representation of ourselves on the internet, our avatar. A Flo-avatar if you will.

An NFT is a “non-fungible token” – which in simple terms means a unique asset that has a verifiable owner.

So a PFP NFT is a unique profile picture that can only ever be owned by one person at any one time.

Why we’re different

WHAT MAKES FLOVATAR NFTs SO SPECIAL?

Most NFTs are just pre-made static images that you buy, keep and admire and then maybe sell one day – hopefully for a profit.

However, Flovatars are sooooooo much more than that!

BE THE CREATOR

Our unique NFT Builder lets you choose each body part so that you get total creative control in what your Flovatar looks like.

EARN ROYALTIES

Because you’re the creator you will earn 1% lifetime royalties on all future sales of your Flovatar - forever!

CONTINUALLY CUSTOMIZE

You can add accessories and backgrounds to your Flovatar at any time, even after minting.

ANIMATED

Flovatars are animated and you can unlock hidden animations by combining certain accessories and backgrounds.

INTERACTIVE

Find the right combinations of character traits, accessories and backgrounds to unlock hidden easter eggs!

EARN TOKENS

All Series 1 Flovatars will exclusively earn our utility token $DUST for a period of 10 years!
Learn more about $DUST on our blog.

Built on Flow

Flovatar is built on the Flow blockchain

There are many different blockchains out there in the crypto world. The most well known one in the NFT space is Ethereum, however, Flovatar uses a different blockchain called Flow - we do this for a number of reasons:

  1. Flow is super easy to use
  2. Gas fees are extremely low on Flow (Gas fees on Ethereum are similar to transaction charges and they can be quite expensive)
  3. Flow is eco-friendly as it’s built on the “proof-of-stake” model rather than “proof-of-work”.

Next, let's see how to use the Builder to mint your first Flovatar

Credit Card / Bank Account Instructions
1

TRY MOONPAY

By far the simplest way is with MoonPay but it’s not available to everyone

MoonPay only works in the EU, UK and USA (except New York, Louisiana, and Texas). Also, not all banks allow purchase of crypto currencies.

If you're in a country that isn't on that list then we recommend using either:

Enter the amount of FLOW you’d like to purchase

You will automatically see the $USD equivalent so you know how much money you’re spending.

Then click Continue

Register for an account

Enter your email address to setup a new account with Moonpay.

Then click Continue

Enter your details

Enter your Name, DOB and Country of residence.

Then click Continue

Continue with verification on your smartphone

If you’re not already using your phone you’ll be prompted to finish verifying yourself on there so just scan the QR code with your phone’s camera then open the link.

Add a payment method

Next you’ll be asked how you’d like to pay for your FLOW, either by bank transfer or Credit/Debit Card.

Select an option then enter all the details.

Confirm the payment

Make sure to check all the details are correct before clicking the Buy now button.

Processing the transfer

It will take a few seconds to process the bank transfer, once it’s complete you will see a Crypto Delivered confimation.

You’ll receive an email from MoonPay informing you your FLOW is on its way.

The actual transfer of the monies may take up to 30 mins but when it’s completed you will recieve another email. Then if you refresh the Flovatar website you will see the funds in your account.

Card not accepted?

If you’re having issues getting your card accepted with MoonPay then we recommend using either of these alternative methods:

Congratulations, you did it!
Now that the hard part is done, let's have some fun and create your very own Flovatar in the Builder!

HOW TO BUILD
A FLOVATAR

Unlike most NFT projects, Flovatar lets you get creative by building your own avatar however you want rather than just choosing one that’s been pre-made.

The Spark of Life

Everything begins with a Spark

Spark is the secret ingredient that will allow you to build a Flovatar.

Each time you create a Flovatar the Spark will be burnt so to build another Flovatar you will need a new Spark.

The Builder

Shaping your Flovatar

First select a category (e.g. body, clothing, eyes etc) and then choose the trait that you’d like to use.

In addition to the traits you can also add Flobits which are optional accessories that you can add and remove from your Flovatar at any time.

Boosters

Using boosters to increase rarity

When building your Flovatar you’ll notice different traits are color coded - each color represents a different rarity level:

White
Common
Blue
Rare
Yellow
Epic
Purple
Legendary

To be able to use a trait that is Rare, Epic or Legendary you will need to purchase the relevant Booster before being able to create your Flovatar. One Booster is needed per trait used.

The higher your rarity score the more valuable your Flovatar will be.

Flobits

Customizing your look with accessories

Flobits are what we call the accessories that you can add to your Flovatar for extra character.

One of the things that makes Flovatar unique from other NFT projects is that Flobits can be added and removed from your Flovatar even after you’ve minted it.

Missing Components

Purchasing any missing components

If your creation includes any components that you don’t have you’ll be shown a shopping list of the missing items that you can buy with just one click.

Once you have all the necessary items just click the Create Flovatar button to mint your NFT.

After Minting

Things you can do even after minting

Once created you can view your Flovatar by selecting My Collection from the dropdown menu then clicking your Flovatar.

From here you’ll be able to do a number of things including:

  • Download an image of your Flovatar
  • Customize the accessories (Flobits)
  • Put your Flovatar up for sale in the Marketplace
  • Gift your Flovatar to someone else

... and so much more once our $DUST token will be released!

You’re now ready to setup your Blocto wallet and get started
