Exchange tokens started becoming the talk of the town in the mid-2017 as soon as they emerged. The purpose was to give some advantages to the users of these tokens and they were identified as utility tokens. For instance, these tokens can be a way to reward a person who is helping create liquidity in the exchange. More applications of the tokens included lowering of trading fees or give some governance rights to the exchange users. The features varied depending upon the exchange.
Some Great Examples of Exchange Token Success

The price of BNB has soared over the last few months and is currently trading at a great price. As suggested by the BNB price chart, the token has performed exceptionally and achieved 10 times ROI for the holders. The ROI from the ICO price has increased exponentially to 105 times the original price in just a year.

Data suggests that the exchange coins have gained significantly this year and outperformed BTC, which is the usual market trendsetter. While BNB remains the best performer, Kucoin Shares (KCS) has reported a growth of 69 percent.
