Once you are accepted to Sloika, following the application submission, you can get started by following these essential steps to submit your first Sloika series.
1. Create an ENS wallet address
ENS is short for Ethereum Name Service. It is a piece of code on the blockchain (a smart contract) that allows you to have a nice human-readable name for your wallet. The ENS will be used for your Sloika profile page (sloika.xyz/yourname.eth)
You can register an ENS at (https://app.ens.domains/ )
For more information, you can follow the article guide we wrote How to create one?
2. Prepare your photo series
Secondly, you can begin to decide what type of series you would like to release on Sloika. There are 2 types of popular series that people utilize: Editions & 1/1 Series.
Editions: Serialized edition pieces of single photography work. Often, the prices for editions tend to be lower, meaning more collectors can participate in your drop.
Edition Examples: (Trailblazer, Overthrow, Once upon a time in Nagano)
1/1: artwork that is minted as a unique NFT. These are sometimes created on their own, and sometimes in a Series — a topical collection of unique artworks.
1/1 Examples: (Girl & Camera, Night Reflection One, Eye in the Sky)
