Third-Party SLP Infrastructure Support and the Continued Growth of BCH Tokenization
Since the production of the SLP system, there’s now a number of methods individuals can provide tokens.

Developer Tobias Ruck released an onchain token auction procedure for SLP tokens and the point-of-sale (PoS) service Bchpls.io now supports SLP. Engineers can also supercharge their BCH application workflow with SLP and Badger Wallet software application designer packages (SDKs).
It’s most likely that individuals with ingenious ideas will create a lot more tokens within the SLP community, which must assist press the worth and energy of bitcoin cash together with the individuals utilizing BCH for conventional double spend-resistant onchain settlement.
