Utility Tokens

Utility tokens are integrated into an existing protocol on the blockchain and used to access the services of that protocol. They are not created for direct investment like security tokens, but can be used for payment of services within their specific ecosystems. The relationship between a platform and a utility token is synergistic, as the platform provides security for the utility token while the token provides the network activity necessary to strengthen the platform’s economy.  For example, Dai is integrated into Axie Infinity, a digital-pet universe with a player-owned economy, providing players with a stable in-game currency. Other projects, such as Cryptocup, leverage Dai stability to provide a better experience for users.
