Understanding the TZIP-12 standard proposal

TZIP-12 (FA2) is a new iteration of the original FA1 token standard, that was built with the idea of porting ERC-20 to Tezos. At Stove Labs, we drafted an ERC-721-like contract interface for Tezos as the base ground for the Tezos Hunt.

A natural evolution of those two efforts, is the TZIP-12 standard proposal which is inspired from the ERC-1155 standard, combining both ERC-20 & ERC-721 into a unified contract interface.

TZIP-12 is being proposed & actively worked on by the Tocqueville Group, at Stove Labs we’re working on one of the reference implementations using LIGO. …

Work in progress at the Stove Labs office in Vienna


Staked Competitions is a suite of tools, with the intention to provide the Tezos community with a fair and decentralized way to run an on-chain competition, revolving around Digital Assets hosted on the IPFS network.

“Staked” — because contestants will be required to pay a fee before submitting an entry, therefore creating a form of stake or a certain level of gamble to prevent wrongful behavior or abuse.

This article is a beginning of a series that will discuss design, implementation and a testing/production run of the first Staked Competition on Tezos Alphanet & Mainnet.

We’d love to gather feedback on the competition design from the community.
