As we talk about crypto tokens, most of us refer to the digital currency. There is also a discussion stating how these currencies are denominated. Tradable assets and fungible assets are what these tokens comprise of. There have been several instances where crypto tokens have played the roles of funds, in various fundraising programs. Crypto tokens can also be regulated around the market as ICO’s (Initial Coin Offerings). As we know that crypto is a term that is based on algorithms, as well as several techniques. Whenever we refer to any token, we should definitely treat it not like a token only, but as a currency. 

If we look carefully, we will understand that Coins stand just as a payment method whereas a token is like a share that is a company owns We can use coins to purchase a token (share), but apparently, we cannot buy coins instead we can use it for buying something else. Anything that is available for buying can be bought using coins, similarly “crypto tokens” can be used to buy various assets. Since we use them to buy, we refer to them as “currencies”Just like coins are assets, crypto tokens are like digital assets which are used for making purchases in the digital world.
