Create Tokens

The QRL supports QRT or Quantum Resistant Ledger Tokens. These tokens share the same encryption and QC resistance as the main QRL blockchain. You can create tokens either by using the qrl command line, or by browsing to the qrl web wallet application hosted at wallet.theqrl.org. Open your wallet, or create a new one to begin with this guide.

QRL New Token

Creating a new token is easy. Once you have all of the pertinent details entered and the fee paid, the network takes care of the rest.

Token Creation

To create a token you will need to provide the following information:

  • The token creation owners QRL address
  • The token symbol
  • the token name
  • The amount of decimals for your token
  • Initial Token Holder Address
    • Enter at least one QRL address and the amount of tokens to create and send to this address

The “Initial Token Holders” field allows you to select the addresses that will receive the initial tokens. You can add as many addresses as you see fit. Below is an example showing the QRL fee for processing the transaction and the OTS key index we intend to use. Ensure this is an unused OTS Key.

QRL token Create

Once you have filled in all of the necessary details, click the create token button at the bottom of the form. This will broadcast the creation of your token across the QRL network and send the newly minted tokens to the addresses specified.

You will get a confirmation page that shows the details of the transaction. Verify the information is correct and press “Confirm Token Creation”

The confirmation screen will print the details of the transaction.
