THE HISTORY OF TOKEN
What is a token?
A token can be anything we want and it can substitute or take the shape we wish, so long as it respects the value we assigned to it. The goal of a token is to be the means to represent things from the real world.
Tokens have existed for more than 10,000 years
Tokens have been with us a lot longer than you might think. Such a long time, that it revolutionized the way we lived thousands of years ago and made it easier.
Tokens were the very first economic revolution, circa 8,000 BC, in Sumer. It was thanks to the invention of tokens that we started counting and having control over our first personal belongings: oil, cereal, cattle... The first tokens were made of clay, usually 1-2 centimeters and round. They also had symbols representing their meaning.
