How to Claim and Access the NFT I Received as a Gift? Print

If you have received an NFT as a gift, you can follow these steps to claim it.
NOTE: Statemine is Kusama's common-good parachain that allows the creation of both fungible and non-fungible tokens. You can read more about it here.
If you choose to claim to an existing account instead, the claim page will connect to the Polkadot extension and ask you to select the account to claim to, from the available accounts in the extension:
Then you'll be asked to enter the gift code you received. Enter it and click "Claim gift." After a few seconds, your NFT will be in your account!
NOTE: Parity Signer doesn't support Statemine on versions lower than 5.0.0.
Don't claim your NFT to a Parity Signer account unless you have updated to the new version and have added Statemine as a network on the app.
How to verify the account you claimed your NFT to
If you have trouble locating your NFT after you claimed, you can check with your gift code to see to which account you claimed your NFT or if it has indeed been claimed.
1. Visit this page and paste in your gift code. Then click "Query gift."
2. This will display the account that held the NFT before you claimed it.
3. Click on "See account on Subscan" to open that account on Subscan
4. Then click on the "Transfers" tab. You should see two transfers, one incoming and one outgoing. The outgoing one is the batch call that sent your NFT to your account, along with a small deposit of KSM. So, that's the account where you'll find your NFT.
If there's no outgoing transaction, then it means the NFT hasn't been claimed yet.
