• FST DataRail / Accountable Data Network
    • An unique network mechanism that insures the consistency, insertion order and existence of any data.
  • Address
    • An entry on Accountable Data Network, each address can actually belong to one private key, but it is cryptographically difficult to be reverse-attacked, since the address is the hash of the public key, and there are 16^40 addresses available.
  • Contract / Smart Contract
    • A set of program modules deployed on accountable data network with their business-logics and storages are computed/executed exactly under their pre-configurations and constraints. A Smart Contract has its own address.
  • Ledger
    • A kind of Smart Contract that stores the Accountable Data and verifies the authentication/authorisation of any operation on it.
  • ERC-20
    • An interface for basic ledger operations and storage.
  • ERC-721
    • An interface for basic non-fungible ledger operations and storage.
  • ERC-1376
    • An interface for advanced ledger operations and storage with optimisations and high-extensibility, compatible to ERC-20.
  • Token / Smart Token / Fungible Token
    • An ERC-1376 implementation with fungible, 18-decimals ledger. (1 Token = 1 * (10^18) value stored in Token Ledger)
  • Voucher / Smart Voucher / Fungible Voucher
    • An ERC-1376 implementation with fungible, 0-decimal ledger. (1 Voucher = 1 value stored in Voucher Ledger)
  • EthereumKey / Wallet File / Key File / Key Storage
    • A JSON that contains encrypted ECDSA private key (using AES-128 series), the passphrase hashing is used with Scrypt/PBKDF2.
  • Gas / Fuel
    • A protocol-level and service-level gas that protects the entire Data Network from the DDOS attack, since any instruction on a Data Network must consume gas. In FST DataRail/Engine, the protocol-gas is called Ether, and the service-gas is Master Service Gas.
  • Transaction
    • A data set contains digital-signature, timestamping, target address, gas amount and the bytecode to the Smart Contract.
  • Transfer
    • A balance change or data transferring in a ledger, it contains from (originator), to (receiver) and the value (data amount).
  • Password
    • The credential for the authentication in sign-in.
  • Passphrase
    • The credential for decrypting the EthereumKey (Wallet File / Key File) to use private key for transaction signing.
  • Master
    • The user that manages and control the whole white-labeled platform (FST Engine).
  • Issuer
    • The user that authorised to issue token and publish voucher (ledger creation). Only Master can authorise Issuers for ledger creation.
  • End-User
    • The common user that can use and control its own wallet.
