Ethereum the Altcoin and the 2nd most popular cryptocurrency and blockchain system. It is based on the use of tokens which can be bought, sold, or traded with Ethereum (ETH).

One of the most significant token standards of all for Ethereum is called ERC-20, which was developed in 2015.ERC-20 defines a common list of rules that an Ethereum token has to implement. Giving developers the ability to program how new tokens will function within the Ethereum ecosystem

I had many people asking for what is ERC-20 coins and where can we find the list of ERC 20 coins.

There are a total of 7228 Erc20 Token contracts as on date.

List of all ERC 20 tokens can be found here - https://etherscan.io/tokens

Super stuff.

Good post.

@raggs2rich Not all tokens are available on etherscan link you shared. I am currently working on a json file (https://github.com/ethfaction/erc20_tokens/blob/master/tokens_data.json) to accumulate all the tokens data at one place. Also been developing a npm module (https://www.npmjs.com/package/erc20_tokens) for the same to use in your code. Please share your response to this idea and any suggestions.
