DX Tokens are the medium of exchange on the DX Network, participants use them to buy and sell data from each other.

The DX Network relies heavily on microtransactions. Specifically, when a buyer requests data about a certain entity, data is aggregated from sellers over the DX Network subject to preferences set by the buyer.

Although this is transparent from the buyer's perspective, the (typically sub-dollar) amount paid to purchase data is generally subdivided among multiple sellers who supplied the purchased data, proportionally to their payload contribution.

Digital currencies are the most efficient way to achieve such payment granularity and the DX Token is the native cryptocurrency which achieves this on the DX Network.

The DX Token is used to pay for data, pay for data listing fees (when applicable) and pay for network transaction fees (when applicable).
