Coins and tokens are a variety of cryptocurrencies.
Coins (for example, Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum) are an asset of a certain blockchain platform designed to transfer funds, pay for goods and services, and invest. They have the same properties as fiat money.
Tokens do not have their own blockchain and are created on the basis of an existing one. Tokens have a wider scope. They can also be used for payments, but they are also a powerful investment asset. In addition, tokens are used to certify the rights to something.
