Copied from the Whitepaper v July 2020:
The Digital Twins core principle is, for a physical entity or an asset, a digital equivalent exists in the blockchain. To replicate a physical entity – be it a machine, infrastructure or a living being – data is extremely important. The nature of data, consisting of physical attributes, inter-object interactions and future states, will be seamlessly exchanged between the digital and the physical worlds using blockchain. ZooBC allows users to create special account types to represent assets and be the digital part of the twins.
I understand the benefits of having digital twins on the blockchain, but what's the thought process behind deciding to have Digital Twins be a form of account type instead of just another type of cryptocurrency token?
