I am fetching my assets using the Blockfrost endpoint for a specific asset:


But there are two metadata entries, one for "on-chain metadata" and one only says "metadata", I have read that metadata is also saved off chain. I think it may be the case for the second option, is it the case?

  • onchain_metadata refers to the metadata stored on the Blockchain, according to: CIP0025
  • metadata refers to off chain metadata, stored on Cardano Token registry
