Jamiel Sheikh explores and codes the development of an Ethereum-based decentralized security token offering (STO) application based on the ERC-1404 standard. You’ll use the Solidity language and Node.js or npm tools and build a smart contract, test it on Rinkeby, and then deploy it to Ethereum mainnet. Along the way, you’ll learn some basic Solidity syntax, how to send ether to a smart contract, how gas works, how to programmatically compile and deploy Solidity code, and how to invoke a smart contract from Remix. Jamiel also explains a bit about the business side of doing a digital security offering or STO.
