What is a tokenswap and how does Bitvavo handle them?

A tokenswap is the exchange of a digital currency that has been issued in a form of a token, to the same digital currency but issued in the form of a coin. For example, in 2017 and 2018 a lot of ICO’s have been issued on the Ethereum network. If these ICO’s want to go to their own blockchain it is often necessary to exchange the issued tokens to a new coin.
