Software Standards

Standardisation is critical to enabling effective decentralization.

Ethereum Token Standards

ERC-20

A standard interface for fungible (interchangeable) tokens, like voting tokens, staking tokens or virtual currencies.

ERC-721

A standard interface for non-fungible tokens, like a deed for artwork or a song.

ERC-725

ERC-725: Identity

ERC-777

Allows people to build extra functionality on top of tokens such as a mixer contract for improved transaction privacy or an emergency recover function to bail you out if you lose your private keys.

ERC-1155

ERC-1155 enables more efficient trades and bundling of transactions to save costs. This standard enables creating both utility tokens (such as $BNB or $BAT) and Non-Fungible Tokens like CryptoPunks.
