Security Tokens and Examples
Utility Tokens and Examples
Equity Tokens and Examples

Security Tokens and Examples

Security tokens are digital assets built for the use of ownership confirmation within the block chain. As the name implies, the token is used in blockchain transactions that ensures fractional ownership security.

It follows that security tokens are regulated by federal security laws to ensure that the investors’ money is secured. Security tokens are programmed and they operate in smart contracts, thus ruling out the involvement of third party in its transactions.


Examples of security tokens are SpiceVC, Blockchain capital (BCAP), 22X Fund, Tzero and Let’s look at BCAP.

Blockchain Capital (BCAP)
BCAP is the initial security token that kick started the evolution of securities in the blockchain technology. It represent every token in a venture fund and managed by blockchain capital.

BCAP was launched in 2013, with great investment on Augur, Bancor, ABRA, BitFuty, BitGo,, BlockStream, Coinbase, Ethereum, Harbor, Kraken, Ripple, Securitize, & Templum.

Utility Tokens and Examples
These are digital assets used for the purpose of financing the blockchain or network on which it is built. It follows that utility tokens gives investors the guarantee that as long as they hold the token, they can partake in the consumption of the products offered on the network.

Utility tokens are built on third party blockchains and are not mineable, thus they should not be mistaken to be coins like Bitcoin, Litecoin, among others which can be mined.

Utility tokens are usually used for initial coin offerings (ICOs). This involves the issuance of a particular percentage of the token to be bought by the public before the actual launch. Those who buy and hold the token are given the privilege to partake in the performance of the products of the company.

Examples of Utility tokens are:
• Funfair.
• Basic Attention Token.
• Brickblock.
• Timicoin.
• Sirin Labs Token.
• Golem.

Basic Attention Token (BAT)

BAT is a utility token used to solve the inadequacies in the privacy of content creators in the blockchain industry.

It has 5.4 million monthly active users, 9.2 million daily active users, 1 million verified creators accepting BAT, millions of wallets created, thousands of ad campaigns with leading brands, and growing utility in the most innovative names in blockchain gaming. The results make BAT one of the most, if not the most, successful alt–coin projects to date.


Equity Tokens and Examples
These are digital assets that works like the traditional stock asset, thus giving holders the ownership in their investments. Each utility token is a representation of the property the holder have in the stock and in several cases, these assets represent a company, third-party asset or property.

Equity tokens can represent Futures, Actions, Option Contracts, Tokenized real estates and Tokenized companies.

Equity tokens are created by companies to offer an initial public offer (IPOs) to the public. They serve as the blockchain representation of the ownership of an asset. The major aim is to boost the market value of the asset for which the token represents.

Examples of equity tokens are:Neufund, The Elephant Private Equity Coin, Slice, Document, BFToken, The dao and RRT Token.


The use case of a token is the major criteria for which it is said to be either security, utility or equity tokens. It is important that we choose each token to invest in based on what we seek to achieve.

Thank you for your time.
