Read below for instructions on new token metadata flow

As of June 20th, this repository will be archived and will receive no more updates. The repository will be set to read-only and the npm package will still exist at @solana/spl-token-registry.

Adding a New Token

You can use one of two tools at the time of writing:

  1. Strata Protocol Token Launchpad
  2. Token Creator Demo

All new token metadata will be added using Metaplex Fungible Token Metadata. The steps to add new Fungible Token Metadata are as follows:

  1. Use CreateMetadataV2 instruction from Metaplex token metadata to create new metadata for token.
  2. Make sure you use the correct format for the token metadata.
  3. You must have mint authority in order to create or update the metadata

The token metadata for Metaplex Metadata Schema is in the following format:

  "name": "TOKEN_NAME", 
  "symbol": "TOKEN_SYMBOL",
  "uri": "TOKEN_URI",
  "sellerFeeBasisPoints": 0,
  "creators": null,
  "collection": null,
  "uses": null

The TOKEN_URI must point to a file with the following format:

  "name": "TOKEN_NAME",
  "symbol": "TOKEN_SYMBOL",
  "description": "TOKEN_DESC",
  "image": "TOKEN_IMAGE_URL"

Where TOKEN_IMAGE_URL is the image url.

An example of the TOKEN_URI:

Which resolves to:

  "name": "A test token",
  "symbol": "TEST",
  "description": "Fully for testing purposes only",
  "image": ""

Updating Token Metadata

To update token metadata you must use createUpdateMetadataAccountV2Instruction in @metaplex-foundation/js in order to update an existing token's metadata.

While updating, you provide the same details as when creating.

Tools for Adding/Updating/Migrating

Update/migrate token metadata using Strata Protocol update token tool.

A tutorial for adding/updating metadata can be found at the Token-Creator demo.

Reading Legacy Token-list


npm GitHub license

Solana Token Registry is a package that allows application to query for list of tokens. The JSON schema for the tokens includes: chainId, address, name, decimals, symbol, logoURI (optional), tags (optional), and custom extensions metadata.


npm install @solana/spl-token-registry
yarn add @solana/spl-token-registry


Query available tokens

new TokenListProvider().resolve().then((tokens) => {
  const tokenList = tokens.filterByClusterSlug('mainnet-beta').getList();

Render icon for token in React

import React, { useEffect, useState } from 'react';
import { TokenListProvider, TokenInfo } from '@solana/spl-token-registry';

export const Icon = (props: { mint: string }) => {
  const [tokenMap, setTokenMap] = useState<Map<string, TokenInfo>>(new Map());

  useEffect(() => {
    new TokenListProvider().resolve().then(tokens => {
      const tokenList = tokens.filterByChainId(ENV.MainnetBeta).getList();

      setTokenMap(tokenList.reduce((map, item) => {
        map.set(item.address, item);
        return map;
      },new Map()));
  }, [setTokenMap]);

  const token = tokenMap.get(;
  if (!token || !token.logoURI) return null;

  return (<img src={token.logoURI} />);


All claims, content, designs, algorithms, estimates, roadmaps, specifications, and performance measurements described in this project are done with the Solana Foundation's ("SF") good faith efforts. It is up to the reader to check and validate their accuracy and truthfulness. Furthermore nothing in this project constitutes a solicitation for investment.

Any content produced by SF or developer resources that SF provides, are for educational and inspiration purposes only. SF does not encourage, induce or sanction the deployment, integration or use of any such applications (including the code comprising the Solana blockchain protocol) in violation of applicable laws or regulations and hereby prohibits any such deployment, integration or use. This includes use of any such applications by the reader (a) in violation of export control or sanctions laws of the United States or any other applicable jurisdiction, (b) if the reader is located in or ordinarily resident in a country or territory subject to comprehensive sanctions administered by the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), or (c) if the reader is or is working on behalf of a Specially Designated National (SDN) or a person subject to similar blocking or denied party prohibitions.

The reader should be aware that U.S. export control and sanctions laws prohibit U.S. persons (and other persons that are subject to such laws) from transacting with persons in certain countries and territories or that are on the SDN list. As a project based primarily on open-source software, it is possible that such sanctioned persons may nevertheless bypass prohibitions, obtain the code comprising the Solana blockchain protocol (or other project code or applications) and deploy, integrate, or otherwise use it. Accordingly, there is a risk to individuals that other persons using the Solana blockchain protocol may be sanctioned persons and that transactions with such persons would be a violation of U.S. export controls and sanctions law. This risk applies to individuals, organizations, and other ecosystem participants that deploy, integrate, or use the Solana blockchain protocol code directly (e.g., as a node operator), and individuals that transact on the Solana blockchain through light clients, third party interfaces, and/or wallet software.
