Access Tokens and the GDP: SaaS Consumer market tokenization.

Access tokens allow for computers and software services to distinguish users and their level of access. Their use and the term predates cryptocurrencies and blockchain, a quick google search shows their current use being largely unrelated to the “token economy”.

For years, access tokens have been generated on-the-fly, for free in a bid to collect as many users as possible. Cloud-based software as a service (SaaS) relies on access tokens as well, and users typically pay a subscription fee to access the service, with the access token being a supporting technological nuance generated for free or with negligible computational resources.
