How security tokens are different from Utility tokens and the applications

Security tokens have been a controversial topic since the beginning, and although they contribute a small percentage in the crypto-tokens, there is a great probability that they will be implemented by many institutional consumers in the coming months.

Here are some advantages that Security coins have over Utility coins

  • Security coins are more like investments as the owners get profits each time the crypto-makes a profit, but this profit can be in many forms including receiving more digital-currency. Meanwhile, utility coins enable owners to utilize the resources provided by the firm; hence are not considered as investments.
  • Security token holders are liable to receive ownership in the company and get to have a say in the company’s decision, while utility tokens do not offer any such services.
  • The tokens are digital currencies that represent the value of external trades and thus, fall under laws regarding securities. Utility tokens are simply digital assets very similar to app coins.

Many legislations in the crypto-sphere have done little good to crypto-currencies this year, and this has raised uncertainty regarding future ICOs. The security tokens have little representation in ICO’s, but that will most likely change in the coming year due to their increased demand. Security tokens help transition people from conventional trading to the digital environment.

Utility tokens, although, dominate the industry but they have many limitations and cannot be used beyond their specific platforms and are hard to convert into physical cash. Security tokens are reflecting the ownership of all kinds of assets and allow owners to enter any kind of business. The fluidity of these tokens makes them more preferable to utility coins.

In the coming months, we can expect agencies and institutions like IMF taking steps to regulate these digital tokens and once that happens investment will soar once again.
