How To Launch Your First NFT Project on Cardano

Your guide to entering the exciting world of CNFTs ✨

✨To code, or not to code?

If you’re looking to create an NFT of your own, the first thing you need to decide is whether you’ll code it yourself (or hire someone to code it for you), or if you’ll be able to use an existing NFT minting service with ready templates and tools.

Using a minting service

Using a minting service takes the stress out of creating NFTs on Cardano, although it does limit your options somewhat. Still, if you’re looking to mint artwork or some other image to simply transfer or sell on a marketplace, this option is usually more than enough.

Custom coded NFTs

If you’re looking to create an NFT with a bit more depth or want full control over how the NFT is produced, you’ll need to deploy it yourself. Deploying an NFT on Cardano is a little different from other blockchains — you require access to a full node to do so. If this sounds intimidating, don’t stress: there are lots of people out there who can do it for you.

Dive into CNFTs

Launching a CNFT for fun can be a simple process, but if you’re looking to turn your idea into a business, asking for help is the best way to go.
