What is ERC-20?

WHAT IS ERC-20 AND WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR ETHEREUM?

Ethereum, the popular cryptocurrency and Blockchain system; It is based on the use of tokens that can be bought, sold or traded. Ethereum was launched in 2015. It has since been one of the most important forces behind the cryptocurrency markets. In the Ethereum system, coins represent a wide variety of digital assets such as coupons and even real-world tangible objects. Ethereum tokens consist of smart contracts using the Ethereum Blockchain.

 

ERC-20 is known as one of the most important Ethereum networks. It is a network that provides a list of rules that Ethereum-based entities must follow and is used for all smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain. As of October 2019, there are more than 200,000 ERC-20 compatible tokens on Ethereum's mainnet. It is of great importance as it defines a common list of rules that all Ethereum tokens must follow. This list of rules; It consists of definitions such as how tokens can be transferred, how transactions are confirmed, how users can access data about a token, and total token supply.

 

What is ERC-20 Coin?

ERC-20 coin (ERC20 token); Bitcoin is a Blockchain-based digital asset with similar functionality to Ether or Bitcoin Cash. ERC20 tokens, similar to Bitcoin, Litecoin and other cryptocurrencies, consist of Blockchain-based assets with market cap and can be sent and received. The most important feature that distinguishes it from other cryptos; is published on the Ethereum network, not on their own blockchain. The ERC20 token is stored and sent using Ethereum addresses and transactions and uses a gas (gas) to cover transaction fees.

 

Why ERC-20?

ERC-20 is an official protocol released to propose improvements to the Ethereum (ETH) network. ERC is short for Ethereum Request For Comments, which stands for Ethereum Request for Comments. The '20' in the token name is called the offer identifier. This is the accepted common standard for creating tokens on the Ethereum Blockchain. Wallets and exchanges use the list of rules he has prepared to integrate various ERC20 tokens into their platforms and facilitate exchanges between ERC20 coins and other cryptocurrencies.

 

Omni Protocol

It is a rebuilt protocol of Mastercoin, built on top of Bitcoin Blochchain. Omni is not exactly a cryptocurrency. It is a protocol layer that runs on top of the Bitcoin Blockchain network. It offers users advanced features such as decentralized investment, private currencies, and smart contracts. USDT-Omni is USDT issued by Tether, based on the BTC network. The deposit address is the Bitcoin address created by deposits and withdrawals that take place on the BTC network. The protocol used by USDT-Omni is the Omni layer protocol created on the Bitcoin Blockchain network.

 

TRC-20 Network

TRC-20 is a token standard based on smart contract implementation while using the TRON network to issue a token. All TRC20 tokens follow a set set of rules in order to exchange and transfer assets, share tokens and be backed by digital wallets. USDT-TRON (TRC20) is USDT issued by Tether based on the TRON network. The deposit address is the TRON address with deposits and withdrawals taking place on the TRON network. USDT-TRON (TRC20) uses the TRC20 protocol.

 

ERC-20, Omni Protocol and TRC-20 network; Networks used by digital wallets to send, receive or share digital assets between wallet addresses. The ERC-20 network has strong firewalls prepared on the basis of Blockchain and consists of secure smart contracts. Coinpara uses the ERC-20 network for transferring digital assets such as USDC and USDT tokens
