You need to make sure that it is properly protected as like a regular wallet, you are going to lose everything by letting it slip away.
Most NFTs work on the Ethereum blockchain, so this is the one that you are going to need to focus on if you have a hope of building up your supply of them. You will then need to transfer this into the crypto wallet that you already have available to you.
