The long-awaited TokenGen 4.0 update is finally here and it brings yet another massive improvement to the most sophisticated smart contract creator on the market. Without further ado, here’s what’s new in TokenGen 4.0.
New Features in TokenGen 4.0
As we mentioned in a previous article, the focus of this update was not on quantity of features, but on a few massive features and improvements. The most notable one is of course, the token generation event landing page. We are extremely proud to say that TokenGen now offers the only user interface on the market that allows anyone to create, manage, and participate in an ICO without any programming knowledge and without the use of the very scam-prone manual sending of ETH to token crowdsale contracts.
Alongside the landing page, the TokenGen 4.0 update also brings improvements to the Smart Contract Management interface, additions of multiple project detail fields (most of them used for the landing page generation), as well as many other various small features that stem from the landing page feature itself.
The TGE Landing Page Feature
Without keeping you in the dark you any longer, here’s a preview of the new TokenGen landing page feature. The preview itself is what the Fabric Token Ecosystem’s TGE participation page could have looked like, had TokenGen been at the level it is now and had we used it for our token crowdsale:
You can also take a look and play around with an example TokenGen TGE landing page here: https://tokengen.io/landing/example. Of course, this is just a test fundraiser that is deployed on the Ethereum Ropsten testnet. Yes, the new TokenGen landing page feature allows you to hold test fundraisers before the real token generation event, just to make sure everything is as you want it to be.
That being said, we walk through the landing page feature in much more detail in this article (from a TokenGen project manager’s perspective) and this article (from a TGE participant’s perspective). Both of these guides explain how to use the new landing page feature, although it is extremely intuitive, especially for fundraiser participants.
All of the data you see in the image above is taken directly from the deployed smart contracts of that specific TokenGen project and is updated promptly as the smart contracts’ state changes.
The New Landing Page Build & Deployment Selectors
In order for the TGE landing page to become active for a specific project, you need to select a build and a deployment, which will be used by TokenGen to generate the content of the landing page. You can do so via the new sliders that we have added to both the Builds and the Deployments tabs on the Manage Project interface:
The screenshot above shows how the landing page selection slider looks for the project builds and it is completely identical for the project’s deployments. Naturally, only one build and one deployment can be selected at a given time. Once that is done, the TGE landing page for the project will become available (if it also has a unique project identifier and a terms URL provided) at “https://tokengen.io/landing/example”. The “example” part from the URL is the unique project identifier that is now mandatory for all TokenGen projects.
The New Project Details
As we mentioned earlier in this article, we have added multiple new project detail fields that represent information needed by the landing page generation process. The new project details are:
- Project Identifier – this is the unique project identifier that determines the final URL of the landing page.
- Project Accent Color – this is used to add a certain level of branding to each project’s landing page.
- White Paper URL
- Product Demo URL
- Team URL
- Roadmap URL
- FAQ URL
- Token Sale Terms URL – this one is mandatory for each project if they want to have their TGE landing page available.
- Twitter URL
- Facebook URL
- Telegram URL
- Medium URL
- Reddit URL
We think that the above details have become an integral part of every ICO project, but if you think that we might have missed something, feel free to drop a comment below the article. As mentioned, only the Token Sale Terms URL is mandatory in order for the project’s token generation event landing page to become active however, the more of these details you provide, the more legitimate your project will look to your potential fundraiser participants.
The TokenGen Public Projects Directory
We have been talking about this feature for a while now and it has finally become a possibility for us to release it. We showed, in the first TokenGen performance report, that the tool has seen an adoption level surpassing our expectations considering the current condition of the crypto market, and we have now had enough public projects created using the tool that we have finally decided to release the long-awaited Public Projects Directory page:
For those unaware, the Public Projects Directory page simply lists all of the public projects created using TokenGen. Keep in mind that some users set their projects to private, for whatever reason, so not all projects created using the tool are shown. This is still the first version of this feature and it currently lists just basic info about each public project. However, in the future, we intend to expand the details to show a lot more stuff, such as fundraiser start/end time, amount of funds raised, number of participants, number of tokens sold, etc.
Improved Smart Contract Management Interface
Previously, while extremely useful and popular among TokenGen users, the Smart Contract Management interface was not at the top of its game with the not-so-user-friendly contract variable labels and with the, sometimes, misleading raw contract variable values. Thus, we have improved the interface with the 4.0 update to now include much more user-friendly contract variable labels and have removed the raw contract values as we translate them to their “real-world” natural values:
The TokenGen 4.0 update also had a profile feature scheduled for release, but we have decided to put that on hold for now as we don’t really need that feature at the moment. Users don’t need to provide any info in order to use TokenGen, aside from giving access to the tool to their MetaMask vault. In the future, we will consider adding this feature, if it becomes feasible.
That being said, the rest of the features planned for the TokenGen 4.0 update have all been implemented and, I dare say, have turned out better than we expected. The TGE landing page is certainly the biggest feature of TokenGen, alongside the Smart Contract Management interface. Both of these features put TokenGen in a unique position when it comes to token crowdsale automation as we have yet to see another tool that even remotely compares to TokenGen’s ease-of-use, functionality, and cost.
And don’t think that things will slow down now that we have a complete ICO automation package. Not at all. We already have a good idea of what the next TokenGen update will include plus, DApp Workbench and the Fabric Store are also coming, so the Fabric Token Ecosystem is really coming into fruition in 2019. Stay tuned!
