  2. This should be in the format of a fully qualified domain name such as, etc.
  3. DO NOT include scheme (i.e. http or https) and trailing relative path: or won't work.
  4. Find more details and code samples here.
  5. Create stellar.toml following directions from the official Stellar guide.
  6. Do not forget to add the [[CURRENCIES]] for each of your assets.
  7. Provide a short meaningful asset description (parameters name, desc and conditions) to tell your users what it's all about (optional).

  9. Make sure that CORS (cross-origin resource sharing) is enabled.
  10. Also check the content type, should be content-type: text/plain; charset=utf-8. Some clients/browsers may not handle it correctly if content is transferred as application/octet-stream, not text/plain as expected.
