Tell me please. I have created a SPL token, how do I add the website and social networks to the metadata now? Previously, this could be done with the help of PR on github.

This was changed due to the PR method not scaling.

Now tokens support metadata and you can easily create one via:


  • Yes, but I can’t add a website and social networks to metodata. Else when creating a token on app.strataprotocol.com/launchpad in explorer, it says a warning that the token is not unique

// Instruction to initialize the MetadataPointer Extension for the Mint Account
  const initializeMetadataPointerIx =
      mintAddress, // Mint Account address
      isImmutable ? null : updateAuthority, // Authority that can set the metadata address
      mintAddress, // Account address that holds the metadata

  // Instruction to initialize Metadata Account data
  const initializeMetadataIx = createInitializeInstruction({
    programId: TOKEN_2022_PROGRAM_ID, // Token Extension Program as Metadata Program
    metadata: mintAddress, // Account address that holds the metadata
    updateAuthority: updateAuthority, // Authority that can update the metadata
    mint: mintAddress, // Mint Account address
    mintAuthority: updateAuthority, // Designated Mint Authority
    name: metaData.name,
    symbol: metaData.symbol,
    uri: metaData.uri,

  // If additional custom fields need to be updated or added
  const updateFieldIx = createUpdateFieldInstruction({
    programId: TOKEN_2022_PROGRAM_ID,
    metadata: mintAddress,
    updateAuthority: updateAuthority,
    field: metaData.additionalMetadata[0][0], // Key of the field to update
    value: metaData.additionalMetadata[0][1], // Value of the field to update

I did this but I dont know if it works since I am on devnet
