NFT - Solana and Smart Contracts

Modified on Mon, 09 Jan 2023 at 05:19 PM

Solana NFTs are a bit different from the rest, every new NFT on Solana has its own Smart Contract. 


Tatum’s API endpoints leverage the Metaplex protocol, a smart contract, and metadata standard for creating and working with NFTs.


With Solana, the JSON metadata is stored on the blockchain itself, so you do not 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
