Technology — Ethereum Blockchain
The Ethereum Blockchain was not created to be a platform that created and records ledger information of transfers of the blockchain;s native token. It was instead created with a lot more in mind a generalized and public blockchain with a Truing- complete programming language. This is enabled people to write programs with customized transaction formats and even specifically stated transition functions, basically specifyun the rules they wanted to govern their transactions and allowing the blockchain to interpret these rules. This is what is called the Smart Contract.
These Smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain have their own addresses and digital assets, which means that there have the capability of sending such assets to other parties using the rules that have been predefined within the programming code of the contract. What’s brilliant is that the transactions are visible to every party in the network. Smart contracts can be used across board to serve a variety of purposes, as they can enforce complicated rules and even automated incentive structures for not only cryptocurrencies but also multy-party protocols such as auctions and more.
Such advanced features and the active ecosystem of the Ethereum blockchain make it the best fit for the TOK Protocol.
