Utility Tokens

  2. Not regulated, prone to scams
  3. They are not investments, so there is no profit guarantee although their prices may appreciate
  4. No powers or rights to investors

  2. Regulated, considered a safe investment option
  3. Being investments you can expect profits, especially in the long run
  4. Investors can vote and decide how company works
