ERC: Non-fungible Data Token


#1

tl;dr;

Some use-cases require to have dynamic data associated with a non-fungible token that can change during its live-time. Examples for dynamic data:

  • cryptokitties that can change color
  • intellectual property tokens that encode rights holders
  • tokens that store data to transport them across chains

The existing meta-data standard does not suffice as data can only be set at minting time and not modified later.

Abstract

Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are extended with the ability to store dynamic data. A 32 bytes data field is added and a read function allows to access it. The write function allows to update it, if the caller is the owner of the token. An event is emitted every time the data updates and the previous and new value is emitted in it.
