What is the difference between a ‘token’ and a ‘coin’?
A coin (or cryptocurrency) is the native digital asset of a given blockchain. It is a foundation – an integral part of it – embedded in the protocol. Often created by the blockchain as a reward to miners or validators, for creating or verifying new blocks and approving transactions. Examples are BTC, ETH and ADA.
Tokens, however, are not created in the process of validating or mining the blocks – they are represented by records in blockchain registries. Tokens are typically issued on existing third-party blockchains. Unlike coins, tokens are not cryptocurrencies, but tradable units of value issued on top of a blockchain. The most common type of token is the ERC-20 standard on Ethereum. Examples are MKR, SHIB and USDT.
Coinfirm’s AML Platform is creating a safer blockchain economy by monitoring and blacklisting funds from ransomware hacks, human trafficking, sanctions evasion and terrorist financing – amongst other crimes – by risk scoring entities, addresses and transactions.
Coinfirm’s platform and services are used by governments, financial institutions, custodians, payment providers, investment funds and exchanges. The AML Platform utilises 350+ proprietary risk algorithms to provide a seamless, scalable solution to stringent regulatory requirements for both CeFi and DeFi.
Founded in 2016, Coinfirm is headquartered in London, UK, with the company retaining offices in Canada, the U.S., Poland, France and Japan. Over 250 entities have trusted Coinfirm’s RegTech solutions.
