Issue a fungible ESDT

ESDT tokens are issued via a request to the Metachain, which is a transaction submitted by the Account which will manage the tokens. When issuing a token, one must provide a token name, a ticker, the initial supply, the number of decimals for display purpose and optionally additional properties.

In practical applications, it's advisable to prioritize the use of smart contracts for fair issuance and distribution.

Please provide the token name (3-20 characters, alphanumeric)

Please provide the token ticker (3-10 characters, alphanumeric, uppercase)

Please provide the number of decimals (for example native EGLD has 18).

Please provide the initial supply (remember to take into consideration the number of decimals for example 100 with 2 decimal places will be 10000).

Every ESDT token has a set of properties which control what operations are possible with it.

The token manager can assign a specific role(s). Important for token management.

The token manager may change these properties. Without it you won't be able to change these properties in the future

The token manager may freeze the token balance in a specific account, preventing transfers to and from that account

The token manager may wipe out the tokens held by a frozen account, reducing the supply

The token manager may prevent all transactions of the token, apart from minting and burning

Token management can be transferred to a different account

ESDT tokens are created through a specific transaction request sent to the Metachain, initiated by the account that will oversee the management of these tokens. This process is essential for developers and businesses looking to issue their own tokens within the blockchain ecosystem. When initiating an ESDT token issue, several key pieces of information must be provided: the token's name, its ticker symbol, the initial supply of tokens, and the number of decimal places for display purposes. Additionally, issuers can include optional properties to further customize the token's functionality and integration capabilities. This flexible framework allows for a wide range of applications, from simple transfers to more complex financial transactions, making ESDT tokens a versatile tool for blockchain developers.
