What is the purpose of the
Write Contract Tab in Etherscan?
For example, if you look up the
QTUM Token Contract on Etherscan (https://bit.ly/2IsddkT) and then tap on the
Write Contract TAB, you have before you all of that contract's Functions:
And I mean they're not just simply listed there, you can actually interact with them, input values into them, etc.
Are you actually able to execute all of these functions? Meaning, perform the transferring of Tokens from some person's account to your account for example?
I assume - and hope - the answer for this is "no", but am I right or wrong about that?
Cause it certainly seems its about to let you do this:
-it lets you connect your account to that contract via
-it then lets you set values - like how many Tokens you want to transfer to your own account, etc.
I mean I haven't actually pulled the trigger on executing any of the available functions (I don't wanna risk throwing away
ETHER or "experimentation") - but its certainly didn't look like it was going to stop me from doing so.
So, what's going on here? What's the point of having this Tab, and this ability to "write" to the contract?
