Every interaction with the Sablier protocol is in relation to a specific "token stream". This is how we refer to a real-time payment.
A token stream has six properties:
- Fixed deposit amount.
- ERC-20 token used as streaming currency.
- Start time
- Stop Time
Imagine a 3,000 DAI salary paid by Alice to Bob over the whole month of January. The start time would be Jan 1 and the stop time Feb 1. Every second makes Bob richer; on Jan 10, he would have earned approximately 1,000 DAI.
