TLChain Documentation

Welcome to the TLChain documentation site!
Please note that both the TLChain software and this documentation site will improve over time and is still a work-in-progress. Be sure to engage with our community channels to stay updated.
Have fun trading and see you on the chain!

What is TLChain?

TLChain is an innovative solution to bring programmability and interoperability to TLChain. TLChain relies on a system of PoA consensus that can support short block time and lower fees. The most bonded validator candidates of staking will become validators and produce blocks. The double-sign detection and other slashing logic guarantee security, stability, and chain finality.
Please read the FAQ to get started.

What can I do with TLChain?

The purpose of the new blockchain and DEX is to create an alternative marketplace for issuing and exchanging digital assets in a decentralized manner.
You can:
  • Issue new tokens to digitalize assets, and use TLChain as underlying exchange/transfer network for the assets
For developers, you can also:
  • Run a full node to listen to and broadcast live updates on transactions, blocks, and consensus activities
TLChain, TC boasts smart contract functionality and compatibility with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). The design goal here was to leave the high throughput of TLChain intact while introducing smart contracts into its ecosystem.
Because TC is EVM-compatible, it launched with support for the rich universe of Ethereum tools and DApps. In theory, this makes it easy for developers to port their projects over from Ethereum. For users, it means that applications like MetaMask can be easily configured to work with TC. Seriously – it’s just a matter of tweaking a couple of settings. Check out Use MetaMask for TLChain to get started.
You can:
  • Send and receive TLC
  • Explore the transaction history and blocks on the chain, via TLC SCAN, API and node RPC interfaces.
Developers can also:
  • Issue new tokens to digitalize assets
  • Run a full node to listen to and broadcast live updates on transactions, blocks, and consensus activities
  • Develop wallets and tools to help users use Dapps

Get Started

Want to try it TLChain? Just give a peek at the first few of pages of the getting started guide. You could also have a read through the FAQ.
Want to develop on TLChain? First, read through the FAQ and learn about tokens here.

Asset Management

TL20 Asset

A token protocol on TC which is compatible with ERC20. It extends ERC20 and contains more interfaces, such as getOwner and decimals. Read the full proposal here: https://github.com/xtlchain

TLC (and Other Coins) MainNet Switch

TLC Coin (TLC) was an ERC20 token on the Ethereum network. After the launch of TLChain, TLC Coin (TLC) is being converted into native TLC tokens on the main network via the exchange platform at tlxscan.com, a pragmatic and efficient way to perform the initial token swap.
TLChain is ready for other projects to migrate their tokens to take advantage of performant transactions with more liquidity options and native marketplace features. More information about how projects can set themselves up for this (via tlxscan.com or partners) will come soon.
