Cryptocurrency token

A token can have various definitions. Tokens exist in currency systems and computing.

The term cryptocurrency token can be used to represent many different forms of "tokenized data" that represents a cryptographic string of letters and numbers. For example, a cryptocurrency token can be used to describe a cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin, or be used to refer to a digital asset existing on another cryptocurrencies blockchain such as an ERC-20 token on the Ethereum blockchain. If no specific context is given a token should be assumed to represent a cryptocurrency that exists on another cryptocurrencies blockchain.
