As an extension to our platform FALKOR, the ByzGen development team is currently working on being able to support the creation, exchange, and tracking of digital tokens.
The idea is that these digital tokens will represent an asset or unit that can be interchanged between parties. In a similar way to the data exchanges that our platform supports now, there is a need for tokens to be created and their issuance assured, and a need to manage and ensure the validity of the exchanges. For example, no token is exchanged that can’t be (you can’t ‘double spend’), and no party is involved that isn’t allowed to be. There’s also a need to audit the fact that the exchange has taken place, and for the parties within a network to operate, and be enforced against, a validated state of current ownership, policies, and the number of tokens issued.
Multiple benefits to clients
Using digital tokens is a natural progression for FALKOR that could have many benefits to our clients.

Why we’re focussing on private token exchanges
From a development point of view, our initial focus with FALKOR is centered on private token exchanges, where the number of tokens and the parties who can exchange them is tightly controlled.
Another initial target is on exchangeable token types that have an agreed value, which is stable and doesn’t fluctuate. In the future, we’d extend this to look at how those private tokens could be transferred and used on public exchanges for wider usage or rewards (for example, crypto). And how we could then support different types of tokens, like non-fungible, within our exchanges.
