I was wondering if there is any way for a smart contract to determine where a specific ERC20 transfer came from. That's to say:

Alice and Bob both send a transfer to a smart contract same amount & token and both tx mined on the same block.

Can the smart contract given the SC address of the ERC20 token and the amount determine who sent it, some how?

I know you can determine if the SC owns the fund by doing smth like this:

function sendTokens(address _tokenContract, uint _amountContributed){

Im after a bit more trace-ability than this though.

Thanks in advance!

  • You usually use allow() and transferFrom() to accomplish this. – user19510 Jan 12 '19 at 21:47
