I found an ERC20Basic interface floating around which closer matches what I wanted to implement for a token as I'd prefer to not have support for approve and transferFrom. What are the implications of implementing https://github.com/ethereum/EIPs/issues/179 instead of the standard ERC20 interface?
- How it shows up in Etherscan and others explorers and tools.
- Issues with exchanges?
- Any good reasons for that functionality that I haven't thought of?
Also, if I have all of the functions from the ERC20 interface and just put revert() for the allowance-related ones, am I gaining anything over just not having them there at all?
I figure this question is complicated because it depends on how the most popular users of the Ethereum block chain are programmed. For instance, I would want to play nice with Etherscan to have everything showing up correctly and also not be turned down by exchanges for a preventable technical reason.
