The actual working example is connected to the Elven Tools smart contract deployed on the Elrond blockchain devnet! You can play with it. I will redeploy it from time to time to keep the minting active. You can also use the template on the mainnet with a couple of config changes. Check the Elven Tools website for docs.
ESDT stands for Elrond Standard Digital Token. Custom tokens at native speed and scalability, without ERC20. The Elrond network natively supports the issuance of custom tokens, without the need for contracts such as ERC20, but addressing the same use-cases. And due to the native in-protocol support, transactions with custom tokens do not require the VM at all. In effect, this means that custom tokens are as fast and as scalable as the native EGLD token itself.
The Elrond protocol introduces native NFT support by adding metadata and attributes on top of the already existing ESDT. This way, one can issue a semi-fungible token or a non-fungible token which is quite similar to an ESDT, but has a few more attributes, as well as an assignable URI. Once owning a quantity of a NFT/SFT, users will have their data store directly under their account, inside the trie.
It is crucial because these two prove that the NFTs come from a verified source. The NFT project should always show the collection ticker and minter smart contract to gain trust.
The Elven Tools is an open-source toolset including the CLI tool, Smart Contract for handling the NFT collections, and this dapp template. You can, of course, use each tool separately. But the CLI helps with smart contract deployments and the setup process. You can also interact with the smart contract using the CLI or even use it as a buyer.
