When issuing a new token (as part of an ICO or otherwise), how is this new token differentiated from a Lumen (or any other token) within the Stellar Network?

For example, in the case of a new MOBI token being issued, how does the network know that this is a MOBI and not another token? Where in the token's signature is the type of token specified?

Assets in Stellar network are represented as a pair that consists of:

  • the code of the asset (ex. MOBI)
  • the issuer account of the asset (ex. GA6HCMBLTZS5VYYBCATRBRZ3BZJMAFUDKYYF6AH6MVCMGWMRDNSWJPIH)

Everyone can issue MOBI token from another account but the issuer part of the asset will be different.
