I'm tinkering with creating NFTs via the cardano-cli. The various "how-to" pages I have found all have me download protocol.json using
cardano-cli query protocol-parameters \ --testnet-magic 1097911063 \ --out-file protocol.json
What I do not see is how that file is then utilized. It is never accessed or referenced in any of the steps needed to create the NFT, and certainly not in any of the code. Every other piece of code has very precise file references. Can anyone shed light? Thanks.
