Building an ERC-20 token
In this section, we will build an ERC-20 token. In previous chapters, we saw several ways of developing smart contracts, including writing smart contracts in Visual Studio Code and compiling them and then deploying them on a blockchain network. We also used the Remix IDE, Truffle, and MetaMask to experiment with various way of developing and deploying smart contracts. In this section, we will use a quick method to develop, test, and deploy our smart contract on a Goerli test network. We will not use Truffle or Visual Studio Code in this example as we have seen this method before; we are going to explore a quicker method to build and deploy our contract.
In this example, we will see how quickly and easily we can build and deploy our own token on the Ethereum blockchain network.
