I am trying to mint a Token2022 token.

My first step:

spl-token --program-id TokenzQdBNbLqP5VEhdkAS6EPFLC1PHnBqCXEpPxuEb create-token --enable-metadata


spl-token initialize-metadata EBF22st7gRqvKtEYW2WomsHUsNrjtPcZvpDAnh6W7Ugu Snail SLUG https://github.com/solana-developers/solana-game-examples

Then when i try to mint tokens

spl-token --program-id TokenzQdBNbLqP5VEhdkAS6EPFLC1PHnBqCXEpPxuEb mint EBF22st7gRqvKtEYW2WomsHUsNrjtPcZvpDAnh6W7Ugu 100

im getting the error:

Error: "Account 5YFz2ASt6CYYvxBe9dfArEA7dciAdW7ADjZtyAgzam2C not found"

What is this account?

The Solution to this problem is that you first need to create a token account for your new token using the command:

spl-token create-account EBF22st7gRqvKtEYW2WomsHUsNrjtPcZvpDAnh6W7Ugu

Then afterwards the mint will work. Reason for that is that you first need a token account that you can mint your token into.
