Token sales are often conducted through smart contracts on a blockchain platform, such as Ethereum. Investors who participate in a token sale typically purchase the project's tokens using established cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin or Ether. The tokens are then stored in digital wallets and can be used within the company's ecosystem or traded on cryptocurrency exchanges.


Token sales have been used by a wide range of companies and projects, including blockchain-based platforms, decentralized applications (dApps), and even traditional businesses exploring tokenization as a way to enhance their operations. However, it's important for investors to conduct thorough research and due diligence before participating in a token sale, as the space can be susceptible to scams and fraudulent projects.
