Product Metadata
Product accounts store metadata about a product. This metadata is represented as a set of reference attributes, stored as a list of text key/value pairs but not all products share the same account structure.
Every product has product_account, symbol, asset_type, quote_currency, base and price_account. However, the remaining fields of a product account will depend on its asset_type.
Equity
As a rule, all products with asset_type = Equity will follow the below Product Account structure:
product_account... Solana Account
symbol.......... AssetType.Country.BaseCurrency/QuoteCurrency
asset_type...... AssetType
quote_currency.. QuoteCurrency
description..... Description
base............ BaseCurrency
country......... Country
cms_symbol...... NYSESymbol
cqs_symbol...... SIPSSymbol
nasdaq_symbol... ComstockSymbol
price_account... Solana Account
symbol: AssetType.Country.BaseCurrency/QuoteCurrency where the base: BaseCurrency is, in order of availability:
  1. 1.
    cms_symbol: NYSESymbol
  2. 2.
    cqs_symbol: SIPSSymbol
  3. 3.
    nasdaq_symbol: ComstockSymbol

Best Practices
The users should not rely on the symbol name being unchanging or parse data out of the symbol.
Instead, programs should always use the different attributes to identify the product you are interested in. You have to ensure that anything which is used to compose the symbol is made available as a stand-alone attribute.
Caveats
We’re limited to 464 bytes to store the attribute dictionary in v2 (the product account is 512 bytes and 48 are used for other fields). This has to hold all the keys and values, plus field separators. There is no data compression or abbreviation.
