As part of the token economy, there are many types of tokens, which differ according to the use for which they were created and the Blockchain platform that they use.
However, what unites all tokens is the fact of being exchangeable, transferable and safe. Tokens of this type are defined fungible (fungible tokens), because they all represent the same digital unity and do not differ from each other. A classic example is the cryptocurrencies, as Bitcoin or ETH.
Thanks to fungible tokens, it is possible to divide an asset or a right and sell the shares in the form of token. Issuing tokens, a startup can launch a crowdfunding campaign, a company can finance its own development or that of its own product, an investor can diversify his portfolios and even small savers can have access to investments that would never have been within their reach before.
In general, the tokenization has a great merit: making the economy more fluid, creating new tools for redistributing value and offering the possibility for anyone to build businesses that are scalable, therefore more efficient, secure, versatile and functional.
