Moralis is here to support you. Think of us as your “wingman” as we build the future of finance together.

Moralis Mage Q&A
Q: I minted a token using a BSC dApp; how can I verify it on the blockchain?
A: A complete overview for users looking to deploy assets to BSC is available in our Moralis documentation. The closing steps in the guide include details for viewing a newly created BSC token using MetaMask.
Q: How do I get listed on CoinGecko (or CMC)?
A: Since coinmarketcap.com and coingecko.com are both privately owned and operated websites, they reserve the right to list (or not to list) any asset based on their own priorities.
In a recent Ivan on Tech interview with the founder of CoinGecko, the founder explained that a request form is available to parties interested in listing an asset:
Q: How can I earn money with Moralis?
A: Moralis is more of a “swiss army knife” than it is a “shovel”. For this reason, we want to develop an idea of what it is we are trying to accomplish because then, Moralis is sure to have a tool to help.
One method of earning money in crypto is through speculation, and one method of speculation is “whale watching”. If you’re looking for an idea to start with, consider building your own whale watching dApp. You can watch the first tutorial video explaining this here: [link here]. Look to the end of this edition for the next episode in the series!
Q: I’m an artist interested in NFTs. What can I do to learn more, or how can I develop the technical background to really get started?
A: Whether you are an artist, non-coding deep thinker, or a new developer, getting started can be intimidating.
If you’re trying to get started with Moralis but are finding it a challenge, we have other resources available to help build your crypto (and coding) foundation. Take a look at the following article to help determine which path may suit you best: https://ivanontech.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360022062620-Moralis-vs-Ivan-on-Tech-Academy-Which-one-should-I-choose-.

THE MAIN EVENT
Two weeks ago, we demonstrated how to build the foundations of a whale watching dApp using Moralis.
If you missed the first video, it is available here:
Following the steps from the previous video, we now have alerts for our various watch addresses.
In this next tutorial, we’ll expand this to include email, Twitter, and Telegram alerts, the next step towards our set-and-forget Moralis-powered whale watching dApp.
Once complete, we’ll have real-time alerts powered by Web3 triggers, producing real-world effects from blockchain events.
Ready your faculties Moralis Mages, the adventure continues…
