I'm trying to get a liquidity pool of a token that is own by my program. This would be simple on other blockchains but I admit I'm having a bit of trouble on Solana.

First here is the important part of my Anchor code :

pub struct Test1<'info> {
    pub from: Signer<'info>,
        payer = from, 
        seeds = [b"tests"],
        space = 24
    pub staked: Account<'info, StakedAccount>,
        payer = from, 
        seeds = [b"data123"],
        space = 32
    pub data: Account<'info, DataAccount>,
    pub from_ata: Account<'info, TokenAccount>,
        payer = from_ata,
        token::mint = mint,
        token::authority = data
    pub program_ata: Account<'info, TokenAccount>,
        address = MINT_ACCOUNT
    pub mint: Account<'info, Mint>,
    pub associated_token_program: Program<'info, AssociatedToken>,
    pub token_program: Program<'info, Token>,
    pub system_program: Program<'info, System>,
    pub rent: Sysvar<'info, Rent>,

And here is the instruction to call the program :

let txHash = await pg.program.methods
    from: pg.wallet.publicKey,
    fromAta: ata_user,
    programAta: ata_program,
    mint: MINT_USDC,
    tokenProgram: TOKEN_PROGRAM_ID,
    rent: anchor.web3.SYSVAR_RENT_PUBKEY
await logTransaction(txHash);

Basically, the idea would be for the token account (program_ata) to be owned by data (a PDA from my program). However, I want my program to authorize only the deposit of a particular token (USDC). That's why I use: associated_token::mint = mint, associated_token::authority = data.

I get this error: "Uncaught error: failed to send transaction: Transaction simulation failed: Error processing Instruction 0: An account required by the instruction is missing".

I'm sure it's from associated_token::mint = mint, associated_token::authority = data. Do you know why I'm getting this error? Is the logic right ?


  • Does adding pub token_program: Program<'info, Token> as an account solve the issue? Also, try changing associated_token::mint to token::mint (do the same with authority), and report back if that solves your issue

  • I already had pub token_program: Program<'info, Token> as an account (I just didn't show it in the snippet). I also tried to replace associated_token::mint to token::mint. But it doesn't work

  • With token::mint I get : Uncaught error: Signature verification failed

  • Gotcha. Can you provide a snippet of how you're calling this instruction? Also, can you add all the accounts you're including to the #[derive(Accounts)] snippet

  • I have edited the original post to add all these informations :)

There is an anchor escrow program for you to use as a reference. The repo.

The notes for the repo are here.

You will need to know how Program Derived addresses works in order to understand Solana’s program model.

  • Please dont only paste links, but also add the code to do so and explain a bit how it works
