This standard will serve as the basis for most tokens produced during the initial coin offerings (ICO). In other words, now all issued tokens based on Ethereum will have to comply with this standard and a description to it.

The standard also ensures that all decentralized applications and smart contracts will operate in Ethereum ecosystem in a predictable manner, while meeting the same security requirements.

The standard ERC-20 gained wide popularity at the end of 2015 and quickly became popular among the organizers of the ICO. It establishes a common set of rules for tokens issued on the basis of Ethereum.
