IRC2 Standard

A token is a representation of something in blockchain. This something can be money, services, shares in a company or anything. By representing something as tokens, we can allow smart contract to interact with them.

IRC2 token is a standard token equivalent to ERC20 for ICON blockchain. It helps to keep track of fungible tokens.

There are a few core contracts to implement IRC2 token.

  • IIRC2: Interface IRC2 methods should confirm into.

  • IRC2: The base implementation of IRC2 contract.

There are multiple other extensions.
