How did you get a free Bored Henry NFT?

I know I threw a lot at your right there, but I will explain everything.
What’s an NFT airdrop?
When creators make NFTs, some will give NFTs away for free. They transfer an NFT in their account to your account. They are airdropping the NFT to your account. Here’s a video that explains the process a bit more in detail.
Do people really give away NFTs on Twitter?
Yes, they do. You just need to invest a little time to find free NFTs on Twitter. You can check out the hashtags NFTGiveways or NFTAirdrops. I will warn you, be wise with your time. Some airdrops or giveaways are for a small number of NFTs. I try to find airdrops and giveaways that don’t cap the NFTs they’re giving out. This is rare, but if you keep an eye out, you find them.
What if I don’t like MetaMask?
I know MetaMask maybe a little too on the cutting edge for some of you. MetaMask is completely decentralized and can feel like you’re in the wild west. You can use Coinbase instead of MetaMask. Coinbase has an exchange, wallet, and NFT marketplace. Coinbase appears to be an all-in-one destination for your crypto and NFT needs. Here is a video to show you how to use the Coinbase wallet.
What if NTFs aren’t my thing?
There are so many things happening in the blockchain ecosystem. I would suggest you look into crypto mining. The barrier of entry is very low to get started. You can still mine tokens like Monero with any computer. If you need help getting started, please leave a comment.
