Is there a way to add a new token to an already-running Cosmos application chain? For example, let’s say the staking token is “ABC”, and the network is running already. Now, let’s say I wanted to add a new token FOO that people could have balances of, and in fact, even have some validators who are willing to accept GAS that is paid for with a minimum gas price, expressed in FOO.
Can I do this? I am not sure. It almost seems like I would have to define FOO in the genesis before the network started – otherwise, how can it FOO even come into existence?
Hope this makes sense. I want to know if I can add arbitrary new tokens to the network, after the fact. I am pretty sure I can do this before hand by simply modifying the accounts.coins section of genesis.json and adding whatever I want in there.
