Missing Collateral

How to resolve the "Missing Collateral" error notification

🤔 Why am I seeing this error notification?

You are seeing this notification because your wallet does not have collateral set, which is required by the Cardano blockchain to interact with smart contracts.

🛠️ How can I fix this error?

You are in luck as this is a very easy error to fix! Open up your Nami wallet and click on your profile picture. From here you will see a dropdown with a button labeled "Collateral". Click on this and then complete the collateral setting transaction (this requires ADA). The 5 ADA that is used for collateral will stay in your wallet, it is just set aside to ensure safe interactions with the Cardano blockchain.

If you are unsure and/or need help resolving this error please reach out to the team on Discord.
