Connecting Your Wallet to Existing Nifty Gateway Account
If you have an existing Nifty Gateway account and are logged in, connect your wallet to our system by doing the following:
- Click on your profile picture in the upper right-hand corner and click on “Account Settings.”
- Click on “External Wallets.”
- If your wallet is listed as connected, make sure the correct wallet address is listed.
- If no wallet is showing up:
- Make sure you have MetaMask installed and functioning.
- Click on your MetaMask extension and connect whichever account you intend on using to Nifty Gateway.
- Click on “Connect New Wallet.”
- Click on “Click to Verify” if the correct wallet address is listed.
- Click “Sign” on the MetaMask signature request.
- Make sure the correct wallet address is listed under "Connected Wallets."
Connecting Your Wallet Without Previously Creating a Nifty Gateway Account
If you do not have a Nifty Gateway account you will be able to create an account by doing the following:
- Click on the MetaMask icon that will appear at the top right corner of our homepage.
- Sign the signature request.
- Click “Go to sign up” when prompted to connect your wallet to an account.
- Provide your email address and name, and click “Sign Up with MetaMask.”
Signing the signature request does not in any way give Nifty Gateway permission to perform any transactions with your wallet. It simply verifies that you are the owner of the wallet you are connecting.

Two Listing Systems
Upon the launch of our Wallet to Wallet product, we are also launching V2 of our listings system. The marketplace fee for V2 listings will be 2.5% (and in many cases, further discounts will apply!)
Eventually, all listings on NG will be transitioned over to the V2 listings system. Until that transition is fully complete, we will have two separate listings systems - our V1 and V2 listing systems will co-exist.
Here is a quick summary of the differences:
- Flat 5% fee
- Credit card, prepaid ETH and Gemini balance payments accepted
- You can only create a V1 listing for an item held in an NG wallet
- You must be an authorized seller to make a V1 listing
- 2.5% fee
- You can only pay directly with ETH held in an ETH wallet
- You can only create a V2 listing for an item held in an Eth wallet
- Anyone with an ETH wallet can make a V2 listing
We intend on quickly adding additional features, and we are working on fully dissolving the V1 listing system. We estimate that the V1 listing system will be fully dissolved within the next few months
How Many Wallets Can I Connect?
You are allowed to connect as many wallets as you would like.
My NFTs Are Not Showing Up In My Account/Profile
If you have a previously connected wallet and do not see your NFTs in your profile, press the "Sync" button listed next to your wallet address in order to refresh your account.
Is Nifty Gateway Secure?
Nifty Gateway is owned by Gemini, and we enjoy the many benefits of Gemini’s industry-leading security infrastructure and team. Gemini is a New York Trust company that undergoes regular bank exams and is subject to the cyber security regulations promulgated by the New York Department of Financial Services.
Gemini uses hardware security modules (“HSMs”) that have achieved a FIPS 140-2 Level 3 rating or higher. Like Gemini, Nifty Gateway follows the principle of least-privilege by applying tiered, role-based access-controls to our production environment. Administrative access requires multi-factor authentication and must be accessed from Gemini issued hardware devices.
Does Connecting My Wallet to Nifty Gateway Put Assets Held in My Wallet at Any Risk?
Tips to Keep Your MetaMask Secure
Although our infrastructure is secure, we do recommend our collectors take certain precautions when using an external wallet such as a MetaMask, including:
- Connect a hardware wallet to your MetaMask
- Make sure that you are doing your due diligence when connecting to other websites and applications. Scammers will often try to mimic projects and use similar addresses to try to gain access to someone else’s assets.
- Do not share your private keys or passwords with anyone.
- If you are buying NFTs that are not on Nifty Gateway, make sure that any NFTs you are buying are coming from the actual artist or project. Oftentimes, scammers will reproduce well known projects, and try to sell them as the originals.
- Ask trusted individuals that are more familiar with the technology and project whether they believe a project is safe to connect to.
