Coins or Tokens, do you know what are you buying?

Understanding the most basic component of the cryptocurrency industry is one of the biggest barriers for new users. In recent years, thousands of different cryptocurrencies have been created and there has been a huge investment in blockchain projects.

Now we will help you to understand the difference between coins and tokens.

A coin is a cryptocurrency native to the network, to understand better, the coins are created in decentralized blockchain networks, that one allows developers to create and implement decentralized applications.

From the user’s point of view, let’s think of “the platform” as an application store and “coin” is the payment method.

The “coin” is used to pay for transaction fees on the network and reward miners for their work, without this, miners would have no incentive to contribute with the network.

Now, tokens are cryptocurrencies that are used as your application-specific currency, we interact with stuff like these in everyday life from membership points, poker chips, online games, and others, In other words, tokens are an asset, which has some kind of utility, but it is only useful for the specific application.

In conclusion, the “coin” is the one that can be used for different transactions and operations in its blockchain, and on the other hand, tokens can be used for its specific application environment.
