Modden news - Utility token


Jun 26, 2022
Today we will talk about the importance of the consideration of "Utility Token"

What is a utility token?
A utility token is a type of cryptocurrency that represents access to a specific application or service within a blockchain network. It allows users to access certain features or benefits, but doesn't hold any financial value or entitlements like stocks or bonds.

To be considered a utility token, a token must meet certain criteria, including having a specific use case within a blockchain network, being integrated into a decentralized network, not being marketed as an investment, and not representing ownership in an underlying asset or company.

To get this consideration, a token issuer should focus on building a strong use case for the token and making sure it provides a clear value proposition to users. They should also ensure that all marketing and communication materials avoid making any promises or guarantees of profit or return on investment. Additionally, the token should be integrated into a decentralized network and its functionality should be clearly defined and usable.

Why is so important?

Listing tokens that are not considered utility tokens can be illegal if they are considered securities and are not properly registered or exempt from registration with the relevant regulatory authorities.

In the U.S., for example, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has taken the position that many cryptocurrencies and initial coin offerings (ICOs) are considered securities and are subject to federal securities laws. This means that exchanges that list such tokens must comply with the applicable laws and regulations, including registering with the SEC or seeking an exemption from registration.

Failure to comply with these requirements can result in significant legal and financial consequences, including fines, legal action, and the delisting of the token from the exchange.

It's important for exchanges to carefully consider the regulatory implications of listing a token, and to ensure they are in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. Additionally, token issuers should seek legal advice to ensure their token meets the requirements to be considered a utility token and is structured in a manner that meets the needs of its intended users.

Modden project situation

As you all know, the modden team has been working for a long time to obtain the utility token certificate and ensure a prosperous future for our project.

As of today, we have already obtained the certificate in Spain after months of meetings with the national stock market commission.

The certificate at the Spanish level means complying with European regulations, and after achieving this great objective, we are now working to obtain a legal letter that certifies that we are also considered as a utility token in those most relevant jurisdictions (USA, UK, Asia). Everything is already underway and it's only a matter of time before we get the letter. This letter will allow us to demonstrate the legitimacy of the project before any regulation and the possibility of being listed on any exchange, including binance and the largest ones.

This is going to be our year!! :love::love:

From a business mindset, it is almost always essential to organize well prepared to an upcoming regulation, and even making pivots if needed to. Congratulations for the awareness and sharing information.
