The ARC Minter tool allows users to create assets (NFTs) on the Algorand network.

It supports creation of assets using the ARC-19 and ARC-69 standards.

ARC-19 Asset Standard

The ARC-19 standard uses the 'Reserve Address' to store the pointer to the IPFS data.

More information about the ARC-19 standard is available here:
