Create Your Own Custom ERC-20 Token in Minutes!

We have been working on putting together a series of tutorials for newcomers to Blockmason Link, and we are excited to share our first tutorial today.

Link allows developers to use smart contracts and the power of blockchain in their web or mobile applications with very little to no prior blockchain experience. Link creates classic, conventional, web-based APIs for any smart contract written on a programmable blockchain such as Ethereum.

In this activity, you will use Link to create your own custom ERC-20 token on Ethereum in just minutes!

While this post will walk you through deploying your custom token on the Ethereum testnet called Ropsten, the same process applies to deploying on the Ethereum mainnet except that you will have to acquire real ether (ETH).
