The Importance of Tokens: Value, Ownership of Networks and MOIP (Money Over IP)

A token exists on the blockchain as a unit of value. It is tradable, and it can come in various forms, such as coins, points, in-game items, and the like. Some use tokens to raise ICO funds, while others use them to gain value of representative shares in a company or platform so that the voting rights for decision-making purposes. Here are just a few ways in which tokens have established themselves as being an integral part of the financial market.

Access To Products Or Services With Utility Tokens

Utility tokens is a type of token that is often used to raise funds for a startup. With these types of tokens, users have more access to products or services. The issues with these tokens though is that they do not have much use, intrinsic value, adoption, and they certainly do not give holders any decision making power. Even then, they do have value as a mode of entry for those who are looking to enter into a certain business, they can be used as a form of payment, and they promote decentralized and autonomous organizations.

More Value To Holders

Tokens also provide users with an opportunity to participate in a transparent, decentralized, and auditable-system. They allow users to store specific value that is separate from traditional currency, and if times get bad, then tokens may be a mode of value when users need it. More importantly, tokens have given businesses a new way to promote interaction with their business. Rather than go through traditional channels, tokens are essentially a way out and they provide more value to holders.

Commodity And Security Management

Lastly, tokens may provide a way for improved commodity and security management. When on the blockchain, tokens can secure any kind of data. This allows for more transparency, it gives more control over processes such as patenting and contracts, and the tokens can be used to reward those who participate in the process.

Overall, depending on the type of token one has, there is utility involved. Overall, tokens are a method by which users can gain better access to products or services, they provide value to holders, and they can be used as a commodity and for security management purposes.
