NFT - Solana, collections and metadata

Modified on Thu, 09 Feb 2023 at 02:55 PM


Solana NFTs are unique in the world of blockchain technology. 

Unlike other platforms, each NFT created on the Solana chain has its own smart contract. Tatum leverages the Metaplex protocol, a smart contract and metadata standard for NFTs.

Storing Metadata in Solana

Solana provides a streamlined way to store the JSON metadata for NFTs on the blockchain itself. This eliminates the need to create a JSON metadata scheme and upload it to IPFS. All you need to do is include a URL that points to the metadata in the uri field when creating an NFT. 

Certified Collections in Solana

Certified Collections enable NFTs to be grouped together and for that information to be verified on-chain. More information is available in the Solana documentation

Minting Solana NFTs with Tatum

The above information is subject to change as Solana and Tatum continue to evolve and improve. We encourage you to check the official Solana and Tatum documentation for the most up-to-date information.
