StarkNet ERC721 Workshop: Step-by-step Guide
If you want to get hands-on with StarkNet but don’t know where to start, the StarkWare team has put together a set of workshops to help you understand how to create ERC20 tokens, NFTs, user accounts, and much more.
Even these base-level workshops can be intimidating if it’s your first time learning Cairo or StarkNet. Luckily, David Barreto (@barretodavid) has put together a detailed guide to solving the ERC721 workshop to help you get started.
