These tokens can be purchased using Ether, the native cryptocurrency of the Ethereum blockchain.the tokens and their behavior are defined by the standard which is commonly known as the ERC-20 standard. All the tokens that are created on the Ethereum blockchain need to be compliant with the ERC-20 standard. This compliance ensures that the transactions can happen without any hiccups.
