Here are the steps in order to mint your NFT to the Tezos blockchain!

Step 1: Create your artwork!

There’s no limit to how you want to depict Pinoy  Christmas in the Metaverse through your artwork! A couple of ideas:

  • People waking up early in the morning for Simbang Gabi
  • Families lining up to buy puto bungbong or bibingka
  • Setting up parols
  • Caroling
  • Jose Marie Chan!
  • Now add your own metaverse flair!

Step 2: Set up your Kukai and Teia Accounts.

Minting is the process of putting your artwork on the blockchain. To begin, you need to have the following:

1) Set up your Kukai wallet (this is a browser-based wallet that’s easy to use and you can simply follow the instructions included or follow along with our article:

2) Set up your Teia account 

Step 3: Obtain tez (XTZ)

You can send 1 tez from Binance or any other exchange to Kukai wallet. (Please check our Kukai guide.)

If you don’t have tez, and the admin will give you XTZ so you can mint! 

Step 4: Sync Teia with Kukai

Now that you have all the accounts and the tez, sync your Teia account with Kukai.

  1. Go to 
  2. Click Sync in the upper right
  3. Select Kukai Wallet, Click ‘Approve’ when prompted.
  4. If it says “failed” or not syncing, it may be because there is not enough tez in your account. 
  5. Go back to

Step 5: Mint your Art to Teia

Go to

1) Click the Menu or Hamburger button

2) Select “OBJKT (Mint NFT)”

3) Fill out your OBJKT information

4) Click “Preview” to see how your NFT will appear.

5) Click [Mint] then approve the instruction from your Kukai Wallet. 

6) Wait for the transaction to go through.

7) Check the wallet to confirm that the file was minted and reflected in your account.

The next step will be to send 1 edition of your art for the #tezmasPH campaign!

Step 6: Add Price, Add Editions, and Send One Copy to Contest Account

1) Go to Manage Assets, Click the NFT

2) Then click SWAP.

3) Input how many editions you want (please mint atleast 2 editions)

4) Click “Swap”.

5) Approve the transaction on your Kukai Wallet. 

6) Once the art is finally minted on on Teia, send 1 edition to the showcase page: tezmas.tez or tz2G9rfyqekEtbeC2dbVuDRYqfuxLhanbvA2

7) Finally, fill out this Google Form to confirm your participation! 

That’s it!
