Same address of BNB, USDT and ETH: how to discriminate different tokens

Hello everyone!
I’m sorry if I missed the right place for the thread, I found nothing like this. And I’m sorry because I’m still trying to understand how all this things are working, so my questions probably will be take for granted but for me it’s not.

I was looking for the reason why different tokens (BNB, USDT and ETH tokens) had the same address, and I found out they are using the same blockchain.
Ok, but what if I want to push data into a spreadsheet, how do I differentiate this tokens? What kind of information makes every token unique?
In a first place I thought to the tickers, but they are not unique.

Thanks in advance!


Hello @Daver,

Please be informed that the BNB that you have mentioned is running in the Binance Smart Chain (BSC). It is the same with your Ethereum and other ERC-20 tokens since BSC is EVM compatible. I highly recommend in reading Binance’s article about it: An Introduction to BNB Smart Chain (BSC) | Binance Academy

You can differentiate the tokens by attaching their respective token links or explorers. For example:
