Since March, Cardano has had native tokens and non-fungible tokens on the blockchain and users could create them, without smart contracts! It is one of the key features of the Cardano ecosystem that makes it different to other blockchains. ADA and other tokens on the blockchain are treated the same way.
Since smart contracts are needed to mint an NFT, new and novel ways have been created. New services and systems have evolved around it.
Now that smart contracts do exist on Cardano, the landscape is changing and evolving.
CardanHub is one platform that is doing just this. They allow you to create an NFT directly on their website with a smart web3 wallet such as Nami and mint directly to the smart contract. There is no middle man in the process of moving things to a third party service. All the data is passed directly to the smart contract via the website, executed from your wallet, processed on the blockchain and then sent back to your wallet.
