Towards a Practice of Token Engineering Methodology, Patterns & Tools. TE Series Part II.

How do we design tokenized ecosystems? This article is a first stake in the ground towards a practice of tokenengineering: the theory, practice and tools to analyze, design, and verify tokenized ecosystems.

The first section of this article relates token designs to other fields and explains why “engineering”. The rest of this article is an attempt to draw us closer to this goal, by leveraging existing fields in three main ways:

  • We can frame token design as optimization design, then use optimization design methodology.
  • Inspired by software engineering patterns, we can document emerging patterns for token design.
  • Simulators and CAD tools for circuit design have helped engineers analyze, design, and verify wickedly complex chips. We can look forward to similar tools for tokenized ecosystems.
