I’m over the moon about this. Last night I minted a website on Cardano. Well, technically, I only needed to add the link to the main article, Blockchain For Noobs, in the FT metadata. It’s an HTML document I wrote, illustrated, and coded myself.
And what makes it a website instead of a web page is that it’s linked to another HTML document — Other Work — in the same IPFS folder.
