Frequently Asked Questions

Find a answer to all your questions you have about the cardano native token and NFT Builder

I drafted most of the question, I could have if I would use this service the first time, of course feel free to reach out directly at contact@cardano-native.com


Questions about the service provided

How does it work?

Please check the page "How does it work" where I gave all the details.
I will soon advertise a video on how to use the service.

Can I test it first ?

Yes, even if you are just curious, I advise you to test it first.
I built a Playground which is running on the testnet server.
The service is the same except that you won't send real ADA but tADA (for testADA).
The playground is running on the testnet blockchain for cardano.
To use it, you first need to download the Daedalus Wallet running on the testnet.
You can find it here https://developers.cardano.org/en/testnets/cardano/get-started/wallet/
Once you downloaded it, you can request tADA (testADA coins) via the official form.
It should takes a couple of seconds before you receive tADA on your testing wallet.
Once ready go on the Playground Website
The website running on the playground is having a TESTNET Ribbon on the top right corner.
The payment address should start with "addr_test1" otherwise it will mean that you are using the production version.

How can I get ADA on my testing wallet?

For this you will need to use the official Faucet.
Just click on the link, enter the your wallet test address, and you will receive test ADA.

Why do I have to send you more than 7 ADA while you mentioned that it will cost 5?

On cardano, when you send a transaction with a token, there is a minimum amount of ADA you need to send along.
This is very technical but you can read more about it here
Long story short, when we send you back your token or NFT, we cannot send it without any ADA, that's why you will receive 2 ADA and your token(s) /NFT.
So at the end, the final transaction cost is only between 6 to 5 ADA,

Why is it not free?

Because, I believe all work merits salary. And as well, remember transaction are not free.
So yes I'm taking a margin out of it, but I guess that the way it works.
I don't force anyone to use the service

What is the "tips" for?

When I develop the platform, I thought that it would be funny to be linked to some projects who wants to share their Native Tokens. Moreover what happens if in one or two year your new ada native tokens is worth a lot? This a complete optional feature, that I thought would be cool.

How can I be sure my NFT is unique?

That's an excellent question.
Your NFT will be composed on three elements. A policyID, an asset Name, a quantity.
For NFTs, all of this components shall be a UNIQUE, otherwise it's not a NFT anymore.
To make sure that we cannot use the same POLICY ID again in the future and potentially build another similar NFT, we are using a Time-Locking policy.
Long story short again: we make sure that this policyID cannot be used after the specific slot on the blockchain.
To be fully transparent, the slot number is automatically sent with the metadata when you will receive the token.
It's accessible in the following property of the metadata object: | mintedBeforeSlotNumber.

How can I see my NFT content?

A NFT is token but you generally link a file with it.
On our platform we accept images, videos, and audio files up to 15mb.
When your transaction is confirmed, the file is automatically pinned on a IPFS node.
It means that your file will be permanently accessible, and almost impossible to delete.
You will receive the IPFS hash of your file in the transaction metadata.
If you want to visualize it you can use the official IPFS gateway
Example: https://ipfs.io/ipfs/{{YOUR IPFS HASH}}
You can also see your minted token or NFT on pool.pm. You will find the link in the confirmation message

Which file type are you accepting for NFT?

On our platform we accept images, videos, and audio files up to 15mb.
If you need something specific just contact us at contact@cardano-native-token.com

What is IPFS?

The InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) is a protocol and peer-to-peer network for storing and sharing data in a distributed file system. IPFS uses content-addressing to uniquely identify each file in a global namespace connecting all computing devices.
Check the official website

How can I access a file on IPFS?

You will receive the IPFS hash of your file in the transaction metadata.
If you want to visualize it you can use the official IPFS gateway
Example: https://ipfs.io/ipfs/{{YOUR IPFS HASH}}

Can I create a collection of NFT?

For the moment we don't have the feature, but if it would be useful for you just drop us a mail at contact@cardano-native-token.com

Why can't I use my Kraken, Binance or Coinbase Account?

Because it's not your personal wallet. When you have ADA on a exchange platform, it's centralized in a pool. Only when you withdraw it to a personal wallet you will be the real owner of your ADA.


Questions about Cardano (ADA) ecosystem

What is the purpose of having a native token?

There are many reasons why you would like to use Native Tokens.
Whereas you want to create your own cryptocurrency and share it friends,or you want to play around with the cardano ecosystem, you want to create your own NFT.
Every decision is personal.
Even if for the moment the final possibilities are limited without the smart-contracts, you can already get ready.
Once again I advise you the read Official documentation

After minting a token, can you help to submit it on the Cardano Token Registry?

In short: YES we can and we already did it for several tokens created through our website!
The Cardano token registry is an official token registry from Cardano.

We can generate and sign the metadata file as described in the official documentation.
For this you will need to provide us per email the different metadata that you want to be present in the registry (Full list here)
Once received we will sign and provide you the json file that you will have to submit to the token registry via a pull request following the official procedure.

If you need to update metadata, please also contact us by email.
In the near future, it will be possible to retrieve the signed file automatically using your reference number and a simple form on the website.

Is it possible to see my newly minted native token or NFT on pool.pm?

Yes, since the end of July we adapted the metadata generated during the minting to fit to the following Cardano Improvement Proposal metadata standard.
Pool.pm is using this standard to display images or preview of NFT.
Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions related to this metadata format.

What's Plutus?

The Plutus Platform is the smart contract platform of the Cardano blockchain. You can read more about it here.

General questions about the blockchain

What is a NFT?

Official documentation from WIKIPEDIA:
A non-fungible token (NFT) is a unit of data stored on a digital ledger, called a blockchain, that certifies a digital asset to be unique and therefore not interchangeable. NFTs can be used to represent items such as photos, videos, audio, and other types of digital files. Access to any copy of the original file, however, is not restricted to the buyer of the NFT. While copies of these digital items are available for anyone to obtain, NFTs are tracked on blockchains to provide the owner with a proof of ownership that is separate from copyright.
