How to mint a token with cardano-cli for noobs (video)

It was suggested I post this here. It’s not the best, but I run through command by command until a token is created. My own noob-troubleshooting included.

  1. Cardano supports both Fungible and Non-Fungible tokens natively
  2. Creating NFTs is a matter of setting an appropriate policy restriction
  3. Minimum Ada is only the start, the transaction fees on top of the minimum ada that confused me initially (at [20:00]​). Go here for boring details: Min-Ada-Value Requirement — Cardano Ledger 1.0.0 documentation

Here’s the how to docs most of seen at this point:


Will watch for sure :slight_smile: thanks for sharing!

Hey I don’t know for sure since this isn’t really a token issue. This is probably a setup issue with your relay node. I also don’t use launch pad so suggest going to a topic for that.

Here’s something I saw that says you may want to rebuild from scratch as something in configs could be messed up:
