In this video, I talk about the key characteristics of a currency and how to deploy an ERC-20 token onto the Ethereum blockchain. If you are familiar with smart contract development, this video may seem extremely simple, however, we must not forget that this was practically impossible to do only 5 years ago. If you are just beginning your journey into smart contract development, I strongly encourage you to get some Ether from a test net faucet and experiment with deploying your own custom smart contracts.
I don’t recommend deploying this ERC-20 contract onto the Ethereum mainnet, because it is essentially a sh*tcoin, but please use this contract to learn about ERC-20 tokens 🙂
Have a great day!
