I'm looking to ditch Metaplex NFT standard for something simpler. What I'm looking for:

  • Compatible with Token2022
  • Smaller accounts and less CPIs
  • Live on mainnet right now

I know that Shadow is working on something but it still feels very early, lacks a lot of tooling and makes me fall into dependency hell.

Are there any other NFT standard that fit these criteria?

The closest I could find was NFToken by the team at Glow Wallet. It checks 2/3 of the boxes, being a leaner standard and live on mainnet. However from my research it is not compatible with Token22.

EDIT: @CloakdDev had something cooking up a few months ago but unsure of the progress. Noticed you commented on it, but this may still be an option if it's continuing to be worked on.


It's currently bleeding edge (read: doesn't have docs and not deployed to networks), but token-2022 integrates the spl-token-metadata interface.

More information about the interface at https://github.com/solana-labs/solana-program-library/tree/master/token-metadata/interface

The token-2022 implementation lives at https://github.com/solana-labs/solana-program-library/blob/master/token/program-2022/src/extension/token_metadata/processor.rs

An earlier version of the interface is described in this forum post: https://forum.solana.com/t/srfc-00017-token-metadata-interface/283
