Utility Tokens Versus Security Tokens
For the past year, the ecosystem of tokens built on top of blockchains integrated into decentralized applications (DApps) has been rapidly expanding. One of the most contentious subjects surrounding tokens has been the difference between Utility Tokens and Security Tokens.

Security tokens are subject to regulations which, in many cases, can make their project unfeasible to execute. Utility tokens avoid regulatory oversight but can have their own risks.

In the United States, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is responsible for regulating the public equity markets.
