@alexvandesande i have tried the tutorial at ethereum.org/token. The problem is, as someone who is new to ethereum using the Mist Ethereum Wallet (v 0.7.4), you start with zero ether in your account. So when you attempt to deploy the new token contract as part of the tutorial exercise, you are not permitted to as there is no ether in the account. I have attempted mining (admittedly with my PC so expectations are low) and failed to obtain that way. I have also gone to https://zerogox.com/ethereum/wei_faucet and not obtained any using this methideither. I have been stuck on this for a while and am at a bit of a loss. Any help is much appreciated.

@thegooders if you are mining on testnet, you should be able to mine Ether within 30 min

Hi everyone. Please explain me if I'm wrong as I can't get it clear. Are tokens just dumb contracts?

@uvizhe tokens are contracts, yes. You don’t need to insult them, contracts are people too!

@alexvandesande Is https://github.com/ethereum/wiki/wiki/Standardized_Contract_APIs the official specification or still at draft? would be nice if there are some sort of versioning on each proposal so that each Dapp (eg: wallet) can specifiy which version they are complying.

@makoto unfortunately there’s no official spec yet. Someone should take that initiative and finalize the version 0 so we can focus on version 1. But if you use the code at ethereum.org.token you’ll be compatible with the wallet
