Exactly one year ago on June 17, 2018, I pushed the first version of the ERC-1155 Multi Token Standard to Ethereum’s Github repository and opened an issue for comments and feedback.

Since then, the standard has received an incredible amount of support with more than 50 revisions and 400 comments from the community, who have provided invaluable input and helped shape ERC-1155 into the most powerful Ethereum token standard ever written.

Today, I am proud to share that ERC-1155 has progressed to Final status and has become an official Ethereum token standard.

Now that it has been sealed as “final” by the Ethereum community, there are no more changes to be made to ERC-1155. It is the new accepted standard for minting fungible and non-fungible assets, and the development community can start building applications that integrate ERC-1155 assets with full confidence that the current standard is future-proof. …

Three years ago, Ethereum brought the very first Turing-complete blockchain virtual machine to developers around the world.

It’s safe to say that a large portion of the smart contracts deployed on Ethereum are tokens. Tokens are the ultimate abstract smart contract — they are the pure crystallization of owning something in the digital space.

Most of these tokens use the ubiquitous ERC-20 Fungible Token Standard which deploys a contract to Ethereum for a single type of token.

In economics, fungibility is the property of a good or a commodity whose individual units are essentially interchangeable.[1]

For example, since one kilogram of pure gold is equivalent to any other kilogram of pure gold, whether in the form of coins, ingots, or in other states, gold is…

There has been a lot of talk about Ethereum having slow confirmations and expensive transaction costs.

Seeing a recent article from ETH Gas Station, I decided to test this for myself today. How low could I go before my transactions slowed down significantly or stopped being mined?

Default Gas Price

I sent myself a couple bucks worth of Ether to play with. The transaction fee cost a whopping $0.13 USD — definitely a bit expensive for sending myself two dollars.

Attempt 1

I dragged the transaction fee slider in Parity wallet all the way to the bottom and sent out 0.0001 ETH.

Gas Price: 0.0000000004681 Ether (0.4681 …
