Demonstration: Deploying a token to the Ethereum Testnet to interact with a payment application
By Daniel Dewar | Founder, Paperchain
The adoption of Ethereum's smart contract logic has seen a sharp increase in the 'tokenization' of things, with businesses looking to tokenize assets to simplify their exchange.
Almost every organization wants to ICO (yes, it could probably be a verb now). But what are the benefits of asset tokenization or token generation? What business opportunities does it represent and what does it look like in practice?
Join Paperchain founder Daniel Dewar as he demonstrates the development of a payments/receivables application that interacts with the Ethereum blockchain.
In this session you will learn:
- The tools required for Ethereum development
- How to issue a token on the Ethereum blockchain
- How to build a web application that interacts with assets on the Ethereum blockchain
- Legal implications of tokenization and what parts of a smart contract code can constitute an agreement
