A secondary market is a place where investors or traders can buy and sell different kinds of assets or securities that they own, with others.
With cryptocurrencies, the same principle applies. The only difference is that currently the primary market equivalent is largely based on token sale platforms. The restriction here is not the number of tokens, but rather the buyer’s qualifications and appetite for risk. In other words: With crypto, the primary buyers are usually those who can afford to risk their money on a new project, or have heard of it first and manage to grab tokens. The secondary crypto/token market is the place where all the others can then buy tokens after the initial token sale is over.
