Wrapped Token

What Are Wrapped Tokens

  • In a blockchain it was not first produced, a wrapped token exists natively. It functions as a bridge between several blockchains. It's just a tokenized form of a different coin.
  • Just as a stablecoin is attached to the fiat currency, a wrapped token is attached to the other cryptocurrency's value.
  • With the wrapped tokens, the restrictions of interoperability between two blockchains will be addressed. They enable the information to be moved between the two. Like any other asset, you can easily trade wrapped tokens. 

How Do Wrapped Tokens Work?

The wrapped tokens are equally supported by a set of organizational roles, and an algorithms checks and balance of the underlying crypto assets. The method which supports every wrapped token at a 1:1 ratio through its underlying crypto token ensures that wrapped tokens may be wrapped with complete confidence by users. dApps or decentralized apps can quickly execute wrapped token transactions as they do not run on several blockchains.

Wrapped tokens usually need a custodial agent that is necessarily an entity has the quantity of money in wrapped tokens that is equal to the original asset. A merchant, a multisig wallet, a decentralized autonomous organization, a DAO and even an intelligent contract can execute the custodian's function.

A wrapper and wrappers for the wrapped tokens might be considered as the custodian. When dealing with the management of wrapped tokens, the custodians, who retain the underlying assets and can mint or burn wrapped tokens as they see appropriate, will often be given significant duties.
