TerrraUSD (TERRAUST) is a decentralized and algorithmic stablecoin of the Terra blockchain value-pegged to the US dollar. Algorithmic stablecoins bridge crypto to traditional currencies but run on internal algorithms that maintain the supply and demand of the coin and an ideal coin price. However, TERRAUST isn’t backed by US dollars reserves in a bank account. Instead, to mint or create 1 Terra USD, USD1.00 worth of TerraUSD’s reserve asset (LUNA) must be burned.
TRON aims to accelerate the decentralization of the Internet via blockchain technology and decentralized applications (DApps). The Tron network is a global online content sharing platform and allows developers to create autonomous applications that operate without intermediaries. The Tron network is a purely community-driven Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) after completing full decentralization in December 2021. The network’s main crypto asset is Tronix or TRX, which facilitates peer-to-peer file sharing, governance and voting rights, and the operation of autonomous operations in the network.
LEO is a utility token for iFinex, the parent company of Bitfinex, a cryptocurrency exchange. LEO token holders get trading discounts, reduced fees, and other benefits across iFinex platforms and future projects. LEO tokens were issued on two blockchains, with 64% of the original supply on Ethereum and the rest on the EOS network. Initially, the total supply of LEO tokens was set at 1 billion; however, the circulating supply of LEO tokens is designed to diminish over time. This is due to the token’s burn mechanism that enables iFinex to buy back LEO tokens from the market every month.
The FTX token (FTT) is the native cryptocurrency used on the FTX crypto exchange, which offers derivatives trading, including futures and options. People who own FTX tokens get access to several benefits on the FTX exchange, including lower trading fees. FTT holders can also use their tokens as collateral to trade derivatives. The token was issued on the Ethereum network and can be traded and used to carry out financial transactions.
Filecoin describes itself as a decentralized storage network that turns cloud storage into an algorithmic market. The blockchain runs on a novel proof, called Proof-of-Spacetime, where miners storing data create blocks. Filecoin’s blockchain has a native protocol token, FIL, which miners earn by providing storage to clients. As with Bitcoin, Filecoin miners compete to mine blocks with sizable rewards, and Filecoin mining power is proportional to active storage. FIL tokens are used as payment for these services and as an economic incentive to ensure files are stored reliably over time.
VeChain aims to enable digital collaboration between businesses by giving them new tools for data transfer. The smart contract platform was initially developed for supply chain management. Still, the protocol was rebranded to VeChain Thor after it increased its scope for decentralized applications (dApps) to provide more general data solutions. The network uses the Proof of Authority consensus mechanism to help process large transaction volumes. VeChain has two native tokens, VET, used to store and transfer value, and VTHO for transactions.
Elrond describes itself as a secure blockchain platform for distributed apps, enterprise use cases, and the new internet economy. The network employs the Secure Proof of Stake (SPoS) consensus mechanism, resulting in a comparatively low cost per transaction.
Elrond’s cryptocurrency, EGLD, can be used for sending, rewarding network contributors, and running smart contracts. People who own and stake EGL can also vote on network upgrades and earn rewards in newly minted EGL.
The Theta Network describes itself as a next-generation video and entertainment blockchain platform.

AXS holders can claim rewards for staking their tokens, playing the game, and participating in crucial governance votes that decide the future of the gaming network.
The IOTA Foundation aims to build a standardized protocol for the Internet of Things (IoT). The network uses a unique consensus algorithm (Tangle) that requires users to validate two transactions to make a transaction of their own. Since IOTA is not a blockchain, there are no miners and thus no rewards. Users can use IOTA to make feeless micro-payment transactions between devices.
The Graph is a decentralized protocol that indexes blockchain data from networks like Ethereum just as search engines index the web. The software also aims to enable the efficient querying of blockchain data. The Graph token (GRT) is an ERC-20 token on the Ethereum blockchain, and active indexers earn income from the network proportional to the amount of work they perform and their GRT stake.
Kusama was founded in 2019 by Gavin Wood, founder of Polkadot and co-founder and former CTO of Ethereum; thus, the network is often described as Polkadot’s cousin. The scalable network of specialized blockchains has nearly the same codebase as Polkadot and is built using Substrate (a framework for creating customized blockchains). The network is an experimental development environment for teams who want to move fast and innovate on Kusama or prepare for deployment on Polkadot. Kusama is owned and governed by a community of network participants who vote on and control the evolution of the network- mainly through the KSM token.
TrueUSD describes itself as a regulated stablecoin fully backed by the US dollar. It runs on the Ethereum blockchain and its value is pegged to the US dollar. To that end, the supply of TrueUSD (TUSD) is collateralized by US dollars held in escrow by banks. People can purchase the TUSD tokens and redeem them for US dollars on the TrustToken website. People who own TUSD can stake, farm, and mine the stablecoins on DeFi platforms, Ethereum, TRON, etc.
Chiliz operates the blockchain-based sports entertainment platform founded by a Malta-based FinTech provider by the same name. It aims to bridge the gap between sports and entertainment enthusiasts and influencers.
