Still, now, we could not able to find any reference that describes the separate token standards for tezos blockchain. Still, they use ethereum standards to create tokens. 

During the launch of tezos betanet, they create tokens on ERC20 standards. Still, the network uses advanced ERC token standards.  You may ask me how it is possible?

For example, while launching the TRON, they made all token with ERC 20  standards and then while moving the betanet to mainnet, they migrated all ERC 20 token into TRX10 standards,So, this is how the Tezos blockchain could also do.

The mainnet of Tezos is already launched on September 17, 2018. Still, the token migration process is going. Till then, we can create tokens on any of the Prefered token standards of Tezos.
