What is Tezos?

Tezos is a unique blockchain network that stands out from others due to its proof-of-stake protocol, self-amending on-chain governance, and smart contracts written in the Michelson programming language.

It utilizes the tez (xtz) cryptocurrency and has gained popularity among artists who create Tezos NFTs across various mediums.

Tezos‘ energy-efficient and environmentally friendly approach, along with its ability to upgrade itself without hard forks, make it a sustainable and adaptable choice for blockchain technology.

As an artist and NFT enthusiast, Tezos is my preferred platform for minting and collecting NFTs.

What are NFTs?

NFTs, short for non-fungible tokens, represent unique digital assets that are transforming various industries, including art, music, and publishing.

Unlike traditional digital files, NFTs carry a distinct code that serves as proof of authenticity and ownership. These one-of-a-kind tokens cannot be easily duplicated or replaced, making them highly valuable and sought after.

NFTs are minted on blockchain networks, which provide a secure and transparent environment for creating and trading these digital assets.

With their ability to verify ownership and establish scarcity, NFTs have opened up new avenues for artists, collectors, and enthusiasts alike.

How To Gift a Tezos NFT

Step 1: Open the Tezos NFT You Want to Send

Open and sign into your account. 

Find the NFT that you would like to gift, and open it’s individual landing page.

Step 2: Click on the "Actions" Tab

On the right side of the screen, find the “Actions” tab and click on it. 

Step 3: Scroll to the "Send" Field

Scroll down a bit on the “Actions” tab until you locate the “Send” fields.  

Step 4: Decide How Many Editions to Send

Decide how many editions of the Tezos NFT that you want to send to the new wallet.

In this example, I will be sending 1 edition of this NFT, so I have typed “1” in the “# Editions” box. 

You may send as many editions of an NFT as you hold in your wallet. 

Step 5: Get The Recipients Wallet Address

You will need to enter the exact address of the Tezos wallet that you want to send editions of your NFT to. 

You must be careful with this step. If you make a mistake, and send your NFT to the wrong wallet, you will not be able to recover it.

Here is how you can be sure that you have the exact correct address.

Step 5A: Visit the Recipient’s Profile

Open a new window or tab, and open another window. 

Find the profile of the person you want to send your NFT to.

For this example, I am sending an NFT from my AI account, LAMPmemes.tez to my main account, LAMPphotography.tez

LAMPphotography.tez on

Step 5B: Click on their Tez Domain Name or Wallet Address

Click on the recipients’ .Tez domain name or Tezos wallet address. 

This should be located as the second line of the person’s profile. 

Click on the .tez Domain Name

Step 5C: Review the Wallet on Tezos Blockchain Explorer

Review your recipient’s wallet on the Tezos Blockchain Explorer

Scroll through their recent transactions to make double sure that you have the correct wallet. 

Review the Wallet on Tezos Blockchain Explorer

Step 5D: Locate the Wallet Address and Click the Copy Icon

Locate the wallet address in the top left corner of the page. This should be a long string of letters and numbers, listed below the person’s .tez domain name

Locate the little “Copy” symbol that looks like a stack of papers to the right of the long address and click on it.

The correct Tezos wallet address should now be saved to your clipboard. 

Copy the Tezos Wallet Address

Step 6: Paste in the Correct Wallet Address

Head back to your original window, where the NFT you are planning to gift should still be open.

Make sure that you are on the correct NFT, that you have toggled to the “Actions” tab, and that you are entering data into the “Send” fields.

Now, paste the recipient’s Tezos address (that you just copied from the Tezos blockchain Explorer) into the field that says “Recipient Address”. 

Step 7: Decide if You Want to Add More than 1 Recipient

If you would like to send editions of the NFT to more than one receiving address at the same time, you can click “Add recipient”.

When you click that, a second set of boxes labeled “# Editions” and “Recipient Address” will pop up. 

Repeat the process of visiting the person’s profile to retrieve the correct wallet address from Tezos blockchain explorer for each wallet that you want to send an edition of your NFT to. 

Skip this step if you are only sending an edition to one wallet. 

Step 8: Send Your Edition

When you are satisfied that you have the correct NFT, that you are sending the correct number of editions, and that you are sending those editions to the correct wallet (or wallets), click “Send”.

Be completely sure that you have done everything correctly. This step cannot be undone. 

Step 9: Unlock Your Wallet

Your wallet should open as a pop up window.

Enter the password you have set for your browser wallet to unlock it. 

Step 10: Review the Transaction and Confirm

When the wallet is unlocked, you will see a “Confirm Operations” window.

Review the transaction and the gas fee. 

Select “Confirm” when you are satisfied. 

Step 11: Wait

Be patient.

Wait while the transaction takes place on the Tezos blockchain.

Depending on the current traffic on the network, this may take a few minutes. 

Step 12: Review the Success Message

When the transaction is complete, a little green pop-up should appear at the bottom right-hand side of your screen. It should say, “Token/s successfully sent.”

Step 13: Review Your Work

After a minute or so, your Tezos NFT gift should be visible in the recipient’s wallet.

To double check, you can head back to the recipient’s profile on, and click on their “Owned” tab.

You should see the Tezos NFT that you just sent them towards the top of their “Recently Recieved” list. 

If you do not see it right away, don’t panic. often gets bogged down during heavy traffic periods. Just wait another minute, refresh the page, and check again. 

Step 14: Celebrate!

Throw a party!

Do a dance!

Pop some champagne!

You just successfully gifted a Tezos NFT!

Look at you go!
