The utility tokens created by the exchanges, in addition to allowing holders to benefit from savings in the different fees that the exchanges apply when making transactions, offer another set of utilities that can make them interesting for investors, such as for example, the need to own these tokens in order to participate in the IEOS supported by the exchange in question or may even have advantages in projects attached to the exchange that allow the use of these tokens.
The biggest ones interested in adding extra value to these tokens are the exchanges themselves, since a utility token with great benefits will attract more users to their platforms, which entails higher transaction volumes and greater recognition in the sector.
