What's a cryptocurrency token, what's a coin, and does the difference even matter? In today's post, I'll provide a beginner-level overview of the difference between cryptocurrency coins and crypto tokens. To briefly summarize, a coin is the native asset of a blockchain that is used to fuel the blockchain and carry out transactions whereas a token is an asset that runs on top of the existing chain and requires the "host" chain and the native currency to be used to process its transactions. #crypto #blockchain #eth
