Coins And Tokens What’s What?

Key takeaways:

  • A coin is a token with its own blockchain. It can be called a native token to that chain.
  • Almost everything is a token, but not every token has its chain.
  • Don’t get confused by the names, “coin” does not necessarily mean having its own blockchain. In the Stablecoin case the intention was to signal that these tokens are meant to be a medium of exchange.
  • Tokens have many functions — it’s a good practice to investigate what a particular token can be used for. This could also help you understand what could affect its price.
