Step 1 - Create a Project on Ethereum

Creating a project is easy. Click the "Create your first project" button and choose Ethereum.

Click "Create your first project"
Select Ethereum

You will be prompted to enter your project's details. From their you can create your project and will be asked to submit an Ethereum transaction. The gas price may be higher than you are used to because you are deploying your own ERC-721 + 2309 smart contract to the Ethereum smart contract.

After the transaction completes it may take a minute for Cargo to pick up on your new project. A notification will appear which provides a link to your new project. You could also refresh the page and see your project.
