Welcome to Curios! In this tutorial we will walk you through how to create your account and gain access to the marketplace dashboard.
Navigate to curios.com/launch
First things first, you'll need to navigate to our launch page to create your account and launch your marketplace. You can do so by selecting "Launch your own marketplace" at the top of our homepage.
Enter your email and the name of your marketplace
Enter the email you would like to use. You will need access to this email in order to log-in and in order to reset your password. If you need to add other users to the dashboard, you will be able to grant access to additional emails once this initial account is created.
Next, enter the name of your marketplace. This will usually be the name of your business or NFT collection, and this name will be used to determine the url of your marketplace dashboard. Finally, click "Create Free Account".
Set a password for your account
Soon after clicking "Create Free Account", you will recieve an email prompting you to set a new password for your Curios admin account. Open this email and click the link to set a new password. Your new password must meet the following criteria:
- At least six characters
- Contains at least one uppercase letter
- Contains at least one lowercase letter
- Contains at least one number
- Contains at least one special character
Note: It is highly recommended that you create a unique password for this account, that is not shared with accounts you have previously created on other websites.
Login to your account
After entering and confirming your password, click "Save New Password". Your account is now setup, and you are ready to login. Enter the email and password associated with your new account and click "Sign In".
As a basic security measure, we require 2-factor authentication codes to sign-in to any Curios account. This keeps your assets, and those of your soon-to-be customers, safe from attackers. After clicking sign-in, you will see a text field labeled "Code (sent via E-Mail)". At the same time, or shortly after, you will recieve an email from us providing the authentication code. You will need to paste that numeric code from the email into the "Code (sent via E-Mail)" field and click "Sign-in" one more time.
You're all set!
Congratulations! You've taken your first step towards creating your very own NFT marketplace. In the following tutorials, we will show you how to use your dashboard to create smart contracts, mint tokens, and list them for sale, among other tasty features. We'll also show you how to access your customer-facing marketplace and customize its look and feel to match your brand.
