Patrick Tobler (@Padierfind on Twitter), the computer science from Stuttgart, Germany, who is the operator behind Cardano stake pool “Pool of Babel“, has launched a super easy tool for creating your own non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on Cardano.

Here is how Tobler announced the news on Twitter last Friday (April 9):

The following animated GIF shows how easy the minting process is:

It is worth noting that Tobler’s NFT maker tool for Cardano is currently in BETA testing phase.

Here are a few more details worth knowing:

  • It stores “the metadata of each NFT directly in the first (minting) transaction.” Here is a link tothe metadata scheme used:
  • All NFTs created using tool are to the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) and pinned “so that they continue to stay online.”
  • You should “send the EXACT amount of ADA specified on the payment page” and do so not from a crypto exchange, but from a Cardano Wallet (such as Yoroi or Daedalus).
