Another technical bug I seem to be experiencing.
So I minted my second NFT over the weekend and for time perspective its now Wednesday night.
The NFT is viewable on desktop and in my wallet in the collectables section, but the minute you try and view it on a mobile device web browser it displays the ‘broken image’ symbol.
(This was uploaded around the same time I saw a few broken image symbol posts on the discussion forum, but didn’t take too much notice. As the one I had uploaded was viewable on desktop within minutes of signing the contract, BUT I didn’t check it on a mobile device)
Why this is a issue
Now this is really quite a problem, because I’m trying to message / tweet a direct link to potential customers, or even just friends who might or want to support my work on socials.
Who will be more than likely viewing this on a mobile device (As will a huge part of the NFT community in general when it comes to purchasing NFT’s,), and they all reply with the same thing…
“I can’t see it.”
What’s strange the NFT appears viewable on my artists page on a iPhone, so the GIF preview loads just fine.
Just not the main video file once you click through to it.
I’ve tried viewing this NFT through the coinbase app web browser, instagram’s browser for additional web links, and just viewing it on safari’s native browser for the iPhone. All with the same result.
Now I don’t know about you, but being a artist, I only have a certain budget priced in for minting NFT’s in a month, so this is a bit of a hit.
I know minting can be expensive, but if this is the case, and it is a ‘Broken NFT’.
This seems like a real issue. As something that you are told Is something that is ‘Successfully Minted’ on and through Rarible, isn’t the case at all.
If you have the time, please could you let me know if you are also having trouble viewing this NFT on a ‘mobile device’ such as a phone or a tablet, and if it shows up or doesn’t what type of device you are using e.g. an Android or IOS device. Link below,
It’s also something I advise you check with your own NFT’s as it could be affecting your sales.
Because who wants to purchase a NFT that appears to be broken, or you can’t view the art you are buying?
Thanks for your time, and thanks in advance if you do provide any feedback after viewing the link.

Also to add, I have added and verified my email. I think that’s just a site wide thing that it’s displaying for all users to add their email as its already been mentioned in another forum post.
