Coin vs token, Tokenomics vs TONomics. a small talk about TON branding

I saw many TONians in live videos or groups use the word “token” about the TON Crystals or TONs unintentionally.
I know that most of the people knows the different between coin and token, and it is just a mistake that they use the word “token” instead of “coin”.
we should be careful about TON introduction. we are making the minds of people and it is part of FreeTON community branding.
as you know TON technology has many advantages compare to other blockchain technology and I believe it will make big changes.
TON has a potential to even make a new economic system, a mission that other decentral systems couldn’t do that.
TON DNS, TON WWW , TON VM , DeBots , TONsurf and so on, are just some of TON capabilities that can make a revolution in crypto world.

so the word “TONomics” means the mixture of TON services and capabilities and their ecosystems, can be used instead of using such phrases like “TON economics” or “Tokenomics”.


Couldn’t agree more! And I too am guilty of misusing the the terminology. Great point.

Yep nobody says bitcoin token :joy:

I’d prefer to say the brand new FreeTON project just as a NewTON. To make it’s clear that the newly TON project is NewTON coin insttead of free giveaway TON token.


Agree. I also find the name freeTON a little misleading. People might misinterpret it as a ‘free’ airdrop of TON. I suppose we should rebrand the freeTON project to some other name like DTON for decentralized TON or something like that

This question was asked before. The Answer is simple. NO, TON is ton and we go with this.

Is it problem solved? Any status?

:sweat_smile: no not solved! you see it. still many TONians use the word token instead of coin!
guys please don’t do that.

This fight could be eternal)))

Using the word token instead of coin can sometimes be perceived as a simple mistake and sometimes a slip of the tongue. I also think an expression like “open” could be used instead of “free”. However, I don’t care too much as it is a solid and powerful project.

I have been very impressed with Free TON’s plans and objectives to allow the continuous correction and development of the Free TON protocol and the adoption of decentralized solutions that are spread by millions of users across the world and that will cause future development and ensure the unified development of a single network.

Mostly crypto coins are those which work on their own block chain like btc, eth and and token is those currencies which work om others block chain like erc 20 tokens work on eth block chain.
