This presentation aims at providing a brief introduction to crypto tokens, how they can be beneficial for the users, and why they can disrupt current industries. Various examples will be discussed.
Crypto tokens are a special kind of signs representing objects and/or functions living in the underlying blockchain, and can be generated by smart contracts.
Tokens enable the viability of open source protocols, and dApps (decentralized applications), which was previously unattainable.
Current regulatory frameworks try to mitigate frauds in ICOs, while helping establish tokens as a new asset class.
