Ether Pool

Enable Token Economy Use Cases Without Developing Your Own Token

Kaleido’s Ether Pool enables new blockchain use cases by giving you access to a private Ether pool in private blockchain networks.
What it is

What It Is

A private Ether Pool for token economy use cases.

Add flexibility to your blockchain solution by leveraging the intrinsic value of the Ethereum token in your private network. As you may know, you don’t need ether in a private network, but by having ether present, you allow for more functionality.

The Only Restriction is Your Imagination

Increase versatility with token economy use cases, such as enforcing smart contract costs, prioritizing transaction mining, account to account transfers, incentive mechanisms or any other usage or application you conceive.

More Governance

Enjoy the flexibility to use and allocate Ether anyway you want, with governance of the Ether Pool at the sole discretion of the consortium. For example, you require certain smart contract costs or charges based on certain actions.

How it works

How it Works

Each Kaleido environment is configured with one billion ether in the chain’s genesis block. It can be used to enforce optional gas costs on specific smart contract methods and/or to represent a fungible and transactional asset. The ether pool is an environmentally-shared utility service and is accessible by any organization operating a node within the environment.

Fund Your Ether Pool Account

The Ether Pool exists on a per-environment basis as a pre-funded one billion ether account configured in the genesis block of the chain. The ether can be accessed by any member of a consortium that owns and operates a node in the environment via the Kaleido user interface or through a simple /fundaccount API call.

The governance of the pool is left entirely to the discretion of the consortium. For example, the pool can be used intermittently on a need-by-need basis or drained immediately and then disseminated in accordance with some agreed upon protocol. The pool offers a convenient alternative to developing your own ERC20 token and can be used in myriad ways. For example, mapping to fiat or fungible assets, enforcing smart contract costs or prioritizing transaction mining.
