What is a wallet? A wallet helps you manage your ethereum account. It might come in the form of a chrome extension, or a mobile or desktop app.
An ethereum account “is an entity that can send transactions and has a balance.”
It has a couple of components
A public address
There are many wallet providers but some of the most popular ones are:
One of the best resources around wallets is from the main documentation of Ethereum itself: https://ethereum.org/en/wallets/
When creating a wallet, if you don’t create and have access to a seed phrase, then the account is likely being custodied by another platform and you do not have full access or control over the assets in the account.
That said, if you are creating a wallet through Fabrica’s site, we use an integration with Magic. Magic allows users to create a wallet through their email address. This process does not provide a seed phrase when first using the wallet. However once your wallet has been created you can view your wallet here https://wallet.magic.link/
If you need support regarding your wallet, it’s best to look at the official support documentation on each of their respective sites. Be careful of anyone offering to help, or asking you to share your screen while troubleshooting. Fabrica does not control or have access to your wallet and ethereum account.
When viewing your ethereum account through a wallet, you’ll be able to see a list and balances of all of the tokens you own. Tokens can be coins or NFTs.Not all wallets support viewing NFTs. But just because you can’t view the NFT from your chosen wallet, doesn’t mean they aren’t there.
If you can’t seem to see any NFTs you own, you might want to view your account through a wallet like Rainbow. Or visit a marketplace like Opensea and search for your public address there to see them there. Or better yet, if you have a Fabrica NFT, head on over to v3.fabrica.land to view your properties there.
If you still don’t see an NFT that you think you should, you can try to see if the NFT ever entered or left your wallet by looking through your transaction history on a site like etherscan. If you’ve used your NFT as a loan, it may be temporarily moved from your wallet to a vault for the duration of the loan, or until you pay the loan and any related interest back.
