When creating your newsroom smart contract in the Civil Publisher, you'll need to have the following information ready before you begin:
- A wallet with your public address. (Your public wallet address will be pulled from your MetaMask extension.) Read more about wallets.
- Funds in your wallet - you will need a small amount of Ether (ETH) to pay for gas fees. We recommend about $15 USD to start. Read more about gas fees.
- Your newsroom name.
- The public wallet addresses for any members of your newsroom other than yourself who you want to grant access to sign and publish the stories you're going to add to the Ethereum blockchain and IPFS.
