The role restricts transferability of the token only to the addresses that have the role set, while these addresses can send to any address.

For Semi-Fungible Tokens (SFTs), the management capabilities extend significantly with the role-based features of the eStandard Digital Token (ESDT). The manager of an ESDT token has the authority to assign or revoke special roles to specific addresses, enhancing control over how these tokens are interacted with within the network. This functionality is pivotal, as it enables tailored governance and operational protocols per token. However, it's important to note that these capabilities are only accessible if the canAddSpecialRoles property of the token is set to true. This setting ensures that the token's configuration supports such advanced management features, which are essential for creating a flexible and secure token ecosystem.

Implementing role-based permissions is crucial for maintaining the integrity and utility of SFTs in various applications, such as gaming, decentralized finance (DeFi), and collectibles. By allowing the token manager to set specific roles, organizations can enforce rules and permissions that align with their business models and security requirements. For instance, certain roles may allow for token freezing, token burning, or participation in specific governance decisions, thereby providing a robust framework for token management. This level of customization not only secures the token ecosystem but also enhances its functionality, making SFTs a versatile and attractive option for developers and businesses looking to leverage blockchain technology in innovative ways.
