Frequently Asked Questions

Learn More About ERC Token Market & How It Works

What is ERC Token Market?

ERC Token Market is a completely free-to-use browser based non-custodial cryptocurrency wallet which enables users to store, send, receive and exchange Bitcoin, Ethereum and ERC20 tokens.

Why bother using ERC Token Market?

Over $1 Billion+ were lost up until today as a result of hacking incidents on centralized wallets and exchanges. Transparency is never always guaranteed with centralized services. Hence, many avid cryptocurrency users are quickly shifting away from centralized services to decentralized/non-custodial platforms.

Another reason is the hectic fees involved with centralized services. Market makers/takers are usually charged around 0.1% for each exchange activity and there are deposit/withdrawal fees involved. Remember, we are not here to sell anything and we charge 0 fees for any of the services we offer. We have simply created this decentralized wallet + p2p exchange because we are passionate about bringing solutions to the existing problems within the industry. By using Bitcoin.js, web3.js and the libp2p library in IPFS, we allow users to seamlessly swap coins and tokens (cross-chain) directly with one another without any 3rd parties involved & without any fees involved.

Many centralized services additionally require you to complete KYC as funds are received directly into their wallets. We do not require users to verify their identifications as we do not handle your funds nor do we store your data anywhere with us. Nobody can freeze or suspend your account or funds and prevent you from performing transactions. It’s the way it should have been and will always be.

What does it mean by non-custodial/decentralized?

Decentralized is another way of describing a non-custodial platform. This simply means that there are no 3rd parties involved in storing and swapping your coins and tokens. No data or information about you is ever recorded, passed, and cached on our servers. When you create a new wallet on ERCToken.Market, you are creating a wallet 100% on your end, via your browser. This means if you lose your private keys (or forget to save them), you will lose your funds permanently as nobody else keeps these data/information.

What does it mean by Atomic Swaps and how do they work here?

Atomic swap is a peer-to-peer exchange of cryptocurrencies from one party to another, without going through a third party service like a crypto exchange. During this entire process, the users have full control and ownership of their private keys. For more information, read this ARTICLE (CLICK).

The orderbook itself is decentralized as we keep no records of users and no data on our servers. Each user stores orders and sends them in the form of data to other users via the IPFS pub sub network – which is based on the principles of IRC (Internet Relay Chat), an application-level protocol for real-time messaging.

How are orders created?
1. The user selects a pair in the interface and indicates the amount he/she wants to sell (amount should be available on the wallet).
2. User’s browser creates a message based on the protocol, signs it with the user’s private key (for identification) and sends it to the IPFS pub sub network
3. Other users receive this message via their browsers and adds the order to their local copy of the order book.
4. If someone wants to execute the order, this message is sent directly to the creator of the order only.

When the order maker & taker are matched, the actual time taken for swaps do not take any longer than 10 minutes (assuming that both parties have enough funds on their wallets). For example, BTC<>ETH typically takes less than 40 seconds to receive ETH and up to 3 minutes to receive BTC.

All coin-coin and coin-token swaps are conducted “on-chain” with the help of our decentralized orderbook via IPFS feature + reputation system + atomic swap solutions.

What are the fees?

There are no fees involved with generating a new wallet and using the built-in exchange. However, miners fees may be charged (transaction fees). These fees are not charged by us but rather applied on all Ethereum transactions by the Ethereum network.

Is KYC required?

There are no KYC requirements for ERC Token Market. We do not take custody of funds or private keys at any point in time during the trading process. All atomic swaps are done peer-to-peer against a set of public smart contracts that can be audited by anyone.

Which Blockchains are supported?

Currently, we only support Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) as well as some Ethereum-based ERC20 Tokens.

Terms You Need to Know

Hash function: a function conforming to the following conditions:
If x is known, then f(x) is relatively easy to calculate.
If y=f(x) is known, there is no simple (efficient) way to calculate x.
Example of the function , where mod is the remainder after division by N.

Order: a message which indicates that the user wishes to trade ‘X’ for ‘Y’. In this case, the swap (exchange) only begins when other users ‘subscribe’ to the orders and their conditions are met.

More info: https://medium.com/@EthAdvisor/atomic-swaps-etomic-swaps-explained-in-plain-english-4c3936c7adb8

Swap: an exchange procedure whereby X is traded for Y and vice versa in a simultaneous and irreversible way.

Smart contract: specifically conditioned address on the blockchain with funds locked only until the specific condition has been met.

Bitcoin script: smart contracts for bitcoin and likewise networks.

IPFS pub sub: a decentralized network for message and data transmission.

Forkflow
The swap (exchange) process resembles a dialogue between people. Below, M refers to the Market Maker, T refers to the Market Taker, and M refers to Messages which are marked as **.

** Maker to All: I want to exchange 1 BITCOIN for 10 ETH (place order) (signed with a private key with a condition that a penalty of $100 is to be paid upon refusal)
** Taker to Maker: Let’s exchange
The Maker fills the bitcoin script with the condition that only T may unlock it upon sending the x value conforming to the condition y=f(x) to the script; the script contains the y value.
** Maker to Taker: I have frozen bitcoins at the address {ContractBTCaddress}, sending the Y value now
The Taker creates and fills a similar contract in the Ethereum network stating the same Y value
** Taker to Maker: Here is the contract in the Ethereum network {ContractETHaddress}
The Maker takes ETH out of {ContractETHaddress} by transferring the X value there
The Taker takes bitcoins from {ContractBTCaddress} by transferring the X value there
The Maker is unable to take money out of {ContractBTCaddress} until the timeout expires, and vice versa.

The parties check whether the smart contract is created and filled properly by the other party before taking any actions.

Components

Wallet
Upon first logging in to the wallet, cryptocurrency addresses and its corresponding private keys are generated for the user. The user can then proceed to import/export private keys, deposit, withdraw, view transaction history, and place swap orders.

Orderbook
The orderbook (for swaps) mimics a mini-blockchain whereby all parties will actively keep a copy of the orderbook.

order messages and data operates via events through IPFS whereby each user will be able to send his/her actions directly to other users

Transport: IPFS
Data are stored in a distributed network based on IPFS pub sub, and in this case the only point of failure is the signal server; furthermore, several such servers may be added.

Possible Alternatives: webRTC, metsh, Whisper, libp2p
Current: IPFS pub sub room
Disclaimer: It is probable that a redundant transport system will be required as IPFS remains unfinished

Liquidity: bots
The protocol allows exchanging cryptocurrency directly from other addresses; users do not have to keep a reserve on the stock exchange. The user may keep reserves wherever he/she requires these reserves, for example, on other stock exchanges, and run them through the system only during the swap. Thus, we will not take liquidity from competitors and become an additional invisible layer.

Rating and pledge
*to be expanded*

It is not possible to implement all parts of the protocol technically, many aspects still depends on the user; therefore, a rating or other additional data to filter users are required.

Rating example: Each exchange increases statistics for the volume and quantity of transactions, with the drawback that it keeps Ethereum-related transactions, but this means 95% of all tokens.

Pledge example: The market maker puts a pledge into the smart contract which is reduced if he/she agrees for transactions and later cancels them.

Rating data may be stored off-chain; each user keeps the exchange history with signatures from the other party, which allows uploading it into the blockchain at any time to obtain rating points.

Token (example)
A token is a pledge for the green status;
The user transfers the token into the smart contract, and his/her address becomes green in the system which can be seen by all protocol participants;
If one party aborts the transaction, part of his/her tokens will be transferred to another user;
Therefore, the system encourages correct behaviour, when the expected value is positive; it is not an investment income;
If desired, the participant may withdraw excess tokens;
The token holders may, upon a general vote, establish a fee for all transactions with tokens and a purpose of use (stating the address);
We cannot affect the protocol operation in any way but may choose what information should be displayed on the website.
