Patricia, a crypto exchange that operates in Nigeria, has disclosed the release of its latest crypto token. Patricia token (or PTK) is the name of the native token of the platform. Nonetheless, this token launch has paved the way for more suspicion as compared with appreciation around the crypto community. Local tokens are known as digital assets and they operate on a particular crypto exchange or blockchain company.

The latest introduced local token plays the role of a stablecoin that is pegged to the dollar. In this way, the token can be traded with the dollar at a 1:1 ratio.
