Curate Operations definition
Minting: Simply refers to the process of converting your original digital files like images, music, poems, etc into NFTs by uploading them into a particular Marketplace and promptly followed by the issuance of a token to ensure its originality.
Curate Marketplace makes sure that all NFTs uploaded to its platform are original as it does this by checking and approving your NFTs before you can list them.
NOTE: Profane NFTs, low-effort selfies, and poorly drawn doodles are not allowed by the Marketplace.
List P2P: This is simply the space on the App where you can transfer your NFTs from and to your friends on compatible chains. It currently is under development and will support other chains in the future aside from Ethereum and Solana at the moment.
Import/Export NFT: You can bring along your NFTs from other compatible NFT chains and store them in this wallet, all you need to do is select the chain, copy and paste your NFT smart contract address, import NFT, and send it to curate.
Collections: Simply refers to the grouping of NFTs under a category as this makes it easy to auction them off as a bundle or pack.

To locate where you could mint your first NFT after your registration, go to your profile situated at the bottom right of your screen, once there, click on the button directly above it to toggle a list of other operations and select Mint NFT.
