How to Minting NFT on the Coinex Smart Chain Blockchain

NFT stands for Non-Fungiable Token, NFT token is an asset that cannot be exchanged like other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, BNB, etc. NFT is also built on blockchain, which is used to guarantee an asset or ownership of an asset. Examples are painting NFT, house or car certificate NFT stating the legal owner of the asset, the difference is that NFT is proof of ownership in digital form.

NFT is a unique digital asset and cannot be replaced directly with other assets (this is called non-fungiable). Each NFT has a unique ID, metadata and price are different from other NFTs, even though the NFT is in one smart contract. In contrast to the “fungiable” token for example BNB, all BNB tokens have identical things, such as functions, smart contracts and prices, the price of all bnb coins is the same, there is no difference between one coin and another.

Currently NFT is used to represent digital creations or ownership of a work such as painting, music, animation, video, etc. For example, if you are an artist, you can create a digital painting in NFT format, then you can sell it on an NFT Marketplace platform such as openSea, this will make it easier for artists to market their work and expand their marketing network. In some countries, the NFT is made into a certificate at a school or university, this is done to avoid the practice of falsifying certificates.

After you upload the image/video/music file, and get the CID URL, you need to create a metadata file with .json extension, with the format as below.
