Developer Office Hours: Algorand Standard Assets (ASAs) | Dec 10, 2020

By: Algorand

Join us for an intermediate level office hour session covering Algorand Standard Assets (ASAs)!

The Algorand protocol supports the creation of on-chain assets that benefit from the same security, compatibility, speed and ease of use as the Algo.

The official name for assets on Algorand is Algorand Standard Assets (ASA).

Algorand Standard Asset (ASA) Use Case Examples

You can also represent single, unique assets like a deed for a house, collectable items, unique parts on a supply chain, etc. There is also optional functionality to place transfer restrictions on an asset that help support securities, compliance, and certification use cases.

Most smart contract developers are used to having the flexibility to interact with additional contracts on the blockchain. In other words they are pretty much stand alone applications. Within Algorand this same set of features can be achieved but we use different technologies to implement this capability. 

Getting Started with ASAs

Office Hours on Dec 10th will cover using Algorand ASAs within your smart contracts to develop interesting and capable Dapps. This session will also cover restricting transactions based on asset ownership, asset balance or various amounts of an asset involved in a transaction.
