โฌœEVM Token Standards for Bittensor

BTS-20 chain with TAO as Gas

As we pave the way for a seamless integration of decentralized finance (DeFi) and artificial intelligence (AI), understanding the role of EVM Token Standards in this innovative convergence is crucial.

Introduction to EVM Standards on Bittensor

The Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) Token Standards are a set of criteria and technical specifications designed to ensure compatibility and functionality of tokens within the Ethereum ecosystem. By adopting these standards, HotKey enables the deployment, swapping, and bridging of tokens akin to operations on traditional EVM chains, but with a unique twist โ€” leveraging the power of Bittensor decentralized AI.

Leveraging TAO as Gas

In the Bittensor network, TAO serves as the primary gas, akin to ETH on the Ethereum network. This mechanism ensures that transactions are processed efficiently, maintaining the network's integrity while incentivizing participation and contribution within the ecosystem.

Advantages of EVM Compatibility

  • Broadened Access: EVM compatibility opens up Bittensor to a wider audience familiar with Ethereum's operations, lowering the barrier to entry.

  • Enhanced Functionality: Developers can create more complex and functional dApps, leveraging the robust features of EVM standards combined with Bittensor's AI capabilities.

  • Streamlined Development: The use of established standards simplifies the development process, allowing creators to focus on innovation rather than basic token functionalities.


The adoption of EVM Token Standards to Bittensor introduced by HotKey marks a significant milestone in bridging the worlds of DeFi and AI. Through the BTS-20 standard and the use of TAO as gas, HotKey is set to offer a DeFi set of platforms that are not only efficient and scalable but also integrated with the cutting-edge capabilities of decentralized artificial intelligence.

Join us as we explore the limitless possibilities at the intersection of blockchain technology, AI and EVM standard within the HotKey ecosystem powered by Bittensor.
