Brief Explanation of LUKSO LSPs

Unlock the potential of the LUKSO network with our comprehensive overview of LUKSO Standards Proposals (LSPs). From digital asset management to Universal Profiles and NFTs, each LSP serves a unique purpose in streamlining processes and enhancing the user experience. Learn about their practical applications and how they’re revolutionizing the way we interact with decentralized technologies.


LUKSO has introduced several LSPs (LUKSO Standards Proposals) to provide a robust framework for developers and users within the LUKSO ecosystem. This article will provide a brief overview of each LSP and its corresponding documentation links.


In the ever-evolving world of blockchain and decentralized technologies, standards play a critical role in streamlining processes and ensuring interoperability between different platforms and applications. The LUKSO network has developed a series of LSPs (LUKSO Standards Proposals) to create a seamless, consistent, and user-friendly experience for developers, creators, and users in the LUKSO ecosystem. In this article, we will provide a brief overview of each LSP, accompanied by a simple use case to help you understand their practical applications in the world of digital assets, Universal Profiles, and NFTs.

LSP0: ERC-725 Account – Documentation

ERC-725 standardizes blockchain accounts, enabling a single account to interact with various decentralized applications.

Use case: A user can manage their identity, assets, and interactions across multiple dApps using a single account.

LSP1: Universal ReceiverDocumentation

LSP1 acts as a notification system, allowing smart contracts to receive and process different types of data in a standardized way, and enabling custom reactions to specific on-chain actions.

Use case: A smart contract can accept various data types, such as NFTs or other tokens, from different sources without requiring custom code for each type. It also allows users to reject unwanted token transfers.

LSP1: Universal Receiver DelegateDocumentation

This standard extends LSP1, delegating the processing of received data to a separate contract.

Use case: A user can update the logic for handling received data without modifying the original smart contract.

LSP2: ERC725Y JSON Schema – Documentation

This standard defines a JSON schema for storing and retrieving data in ERC725Y contracts.

Use case: Storing and retrieving user profile information in a standardized and easily accessible format.

LSP3: Universal Profile Metadata – Documentation

LSP3 standardizes the metadata structure for Universal Profiles.

Use case: Creating consistent and easily accessible profiles for users or organizations across various dApps.

LSP4: Digital Asset MetadataDocumentation

LSP4 standardizes metadata for digital assets, such as NFTs, to ensure consistency across different platforms.

Use case: Creating and managing metadata for digital art, collectibles, or virtual goods in a standardized format.

LSP5: Received Assets – Documentation

This standard tracks assets received by a Universal Profile.

Use case: Monitoring incoming transactions, such as token transfers or NFTs, to a user’s account.

LSP6: Key Manager – Documentation

LSP6 defines a standard for managing the controller addresses of a Universal Profile.

Use case: The Key Manager offers a high level of control for interactions between Universal Profiles and decentralized applications (dApps), as well as between Universal Profiles themselves.

LSP7: Digital AssetDocumentation

LSP7 defines a standard for creating, managing, and transferring digital assets, like tokens, on the LUKSO network.

Use case: Issuing, trading, or collecting tokens and other digital assets on the LUKSO ecosystem.

LSP8: Identifiable Digital AssetDocumentation

LSP8 is a standard for NFTs in the LUKSO network. It improves the way NFTs are created, handled, and transferred, offering users better control and an enhanced experience.

Use case: Simplifies managing, buying, and exchanging unique digital items, like rare digital artwork or collectibles.

LSP9: Vaults – Documentation

LSP9 standardizes secure storage and management of digital assets within a Universal Profile.

Use case: Safely storing and managing NFTs, tokens, or other digital assets in a user’s profile.

LSP10: Received Vaults – Documentation

LSP10 tracks and manages vaults received by a Universal Profile.

Use case: Keeping track of the LSP9 Vaults owned by the Universal Profile.

LSP12: Issued AssetsDocumentation

This standard defines the structure and management of assets issued by a Universal Profile.

Use case: A recommendation standard for how to store the addresses of the created assets by your UP.

LSP14: Ownable 2-Step – Documentation

LSP14 provides a secure two-step process for transferring/renouncing ownership of smart contracts.

Use case: Safe ownership management for Universal Profile or other smart contracts

LSP17: Contract Extension – Documentation

LSP17 enables the extension of smart contract functionality through separate extension contracts.

Use case: Adding new features to an existing smart contract without modifying its core code.


The LUKSO Standards Proposals (LSPs) provide a comprehensive framework for the LUKSO ecosystem, addressing various aspects of digital assets, Universal Profiles, and NFT management. By adopting these standards, developers can build innovative and compatible solutions for the rapidly growing LUKSO network. Whether you are a developer, creator, or user, understanding the LSPs will allow you to better navigate and benefit from the vast potential of the LUKSO ecosystem. As the LUKSO network continues to grow and evolve, these standards will undoubtedly play a crucial role in shaping its future and fostering a vibrant, interconnected community.
