Creating NFTs on Cardano

The Cardano blockchain is a great choice for creating NFTs. Right now much of the popular activity is around art-based image NFTs and there’s a massive community that’s sprung up. 

One thing that’s often overlooked about the NFT scene currently is that the large-scale adoption of image-based NFTs is resulting in a powerful suite of tools being created by developers and also all sorts of companies that have sprung up to service this community. As NFTs mature and all the other sides of what NFTs can do start to appear, these tools are going to be ready and available for all of them too. It’s really quite a beautiful self-building mechanism that’s helping create all of the functionalities which are going to end up being so useful in all sorts of diverse NFT usage applications.
