Pandora’s Experimental ERC-404 Standard Grabs Attention
The Pandora project officially launched on February 2, unveiling a novel and experimental token standard called ERC-404.
This innovative standard merges the widely used ERC-20 token standard with the ERC-721 NFT standard. It is available as open-source for creators and developers to utilize.
According to the project’s GitHub repository, ERC-404 represents an experimental amalgamation of ERC-20 and ERC-721, incorporating native liquidity and fractionalization. The team behind the project emphasizes their efforts to seamlessly integrate these two standards while minimizing potential drawbacks.
Pandora, as a collection, consists of 10,000 Replicants, each empowered by the ERC-404 standard. These Replicants are generative avatars, each associated with a PANDORA token.
Presently, there are 5,318 Replicants listed on the OpenSea marketplace, with prices ranging from 11 ETH to 100 ETH.
Regarding the token itself, PANDORA stands as the first token constructed on the ERC-404 standard. Its current price is $24,626, marking a significant 135% increase in the past 24 hours.
Pandora underscores that the ERC-404 standard is entirely experimental and unaudited, despite undergoing some initial testing. The team has disclosed that an independent audit is currently underway.
Despite ongoing developments, there remains a degree of uncertainty among individuals regarding the specifics of the project, with some even questioning the legitimacy of ERC-404’s existence.
Meanwhile, other collections have begun exploring the possibilities presented by the new standard.
Additionally, the Pandora team has announced a partnership with Vector Reserve.
