Today, I’ve had the pleasure of minting a few VegasChips! In fact, I’ve created 100 in just a few minutes. I must say that it was delightful to do and so easy to use on the chain, so massive thanks!
I’m posting this topic so that I can get some clarity about how to create NFT’s. I’ve pretty much scoured the net for help. The main resource followed so far:
…has shown me examples to mint, sent and burnt them. All good and simple!
However, I’m struggling with the concept of NFT’s here. If I mint 1 token against a policy, that in effect is an NFT; but is it? Although it is non-fungible, based on name against the policy and quantity of 1, I was expecting more:
- Tagging it with metadata, such as link to asset (such as image or service key) or setting a serial number
Is this the way we are expected to create NFT’s??? Or, are we waiting on Plutus to unlock this?
I appreciate we can create metadata as part of the minting transaction, but for me, that doesn’t really cut it. Why? I was hoping that given a token, I could examine it to retrieve it’s metadata to use in my app.
Is this to hopeful of me? Am I missing something? Can anyone help to correct my knowledge or set me straight???
Thanks and kind regards
