Lesson 5.3: A Simple Minting Policy

Welcome to Lesson 5.3! In this lesson, you'll learn how minting policies work in Cardano and you'll create a simple minting policy.

After completing this lesson, you'll be able to:

  • Recall how transactions validation works.

  • Describe how minting works in Cardano.

  • Create a simple minting policy using Plutus.

  • Mint and burn toy tokens.

Collaborate with the Pioneers Community

Remember that you can interact with the participants of the PPP through the IOG's technical community on Discord by joining the channels under the Plutus Pioneers category.

If during the program you have questions about Plutus, we invite you to share them at Cardano Stack Exchange (CSE) by adding the plutus-pioneer-program tag to your question. The IOG's Education Team members will monitor these questions to support your learning journey. Whenever you share a question at CSE, you're helping to build up the Cardano and Plutus development knowledge base.
