Solana is my new love story! Can she keep a custom metadata in a token?

Hello,
May name is Math i am a game developper.

First of all, i have to say that i’m in love :love_letter: with solana !
Thanks to all the team who make an enormous work with great documentation ! :+1:

I’m pretty newbie discovering API, CLI etc… and i didn’t find a way to save a metadata in a token.
Is it possible ?
It seems like Metaplex can do this kind of things, but is there a way to do it directly in solana ?

Thanks :slight_smile:

Hi @Math and welcome to the forum! :wave:

What kind of metadata do you want to store? In Solana, there isn’t a way to store metadata directly on a token, that I know of, but if you are looking to store info like the token name, logo, etc. the standard way to do it in Solana is to add your token to the token list. Currently the list is maintained on GitHub, with some bots for automating some of the approval process. Eventually there is supposed to be a decentralized way to maintain the token list, but for now it works pretty well on GitHub.

Let me know if you have any more questions!
