Ethereum, custom (user-defined) tokens are implemented using smart contracts to simulate the transfer of custom assets. Our approach with Cardano does not require smart contracts, because the ledger itself supports the accounting of non-ada native assets.
Another difference is that Cardano’s multi-asset ledger supports both fungible and unique, non-fungible tokens without…
