Creating a Profile

There are two ways on setting up your profil. Either you do it via the objkt Interface or via Tezos Profiles. Wherever the latest change is done takes precedence.

Setting up your Profile on objkt

First make sure that you wallet is synched with the objkt webpage. By clicking on the profil icon on the upper-right corner and then on "Profile" you will be forwarded to your personal wallet profile.
Now, click on the little pen symbol to access the profil editing page:
Here you can now upload a profile picture and insert your name, a profile description and a link to your personal webpage. Links to Twitter, verification of tezos web domain and the link to the webdomain itself can only be done via Tezos Profiles:
After you made your entries, please don't forget to click on "Update Profile" so that everything is saved.

Tezos Profiles

To add or update your profile, you need to use a decentralised, third-party service called Tezos Profiles.
Before starting, make sure you have more than 0.3 tez in your wallet, as deploying your profile to the blockchain will come with a fee. If you don't know what tez (Tezos, XTZ) is you can learn more by reading the What is Tezos guide.

Step 1 - Connect to Tzprofiles

Click on Edit Profile on your objkt.com profile page or head directly over to https://tzprofiles.com/ and click on Connect Wallet
click on Connect Wallet on tzprofiles.com

Step 2 - Delete preexisting profile data

You can skip this step if this is the first time you are creating your profile

It can take some time for your profile to appear/update on objkt.com. Usually, our indexer is very quick in picking up these changes, but it can take up to 30 minutes to 1 hour worst case.
