How to separate the ownership of an asset ?

+2 votes

Dear Multichain Team,

I'm currently working with Multichain to build a blockchain based on a supply chain.

Goods are exchanged between parts, I would like to change some custom fields of a certain quantity for a certain owner. 

It seems that "issuemore" modify the entire amount of the asset on the chain, for each owners. 

Is there a specific way to avoid that ? The goal is to keep track of the movement each good (and their quantity) across the supply chain

Thanks a lot,

A single asset on MultiChain is fungible, meaning that any unit of that asset is identical to every other unit. So issuemore generates more of the same type of unit as already existed of that asset.

If you wish to make multiple assets which are identifiably separate, you should use an issue command for each one, not issuemore.
