  • Bitcoin – TThe OG of crypto markets deserves its own category and in many ways is the true benchmark for any other crypto market.
  • Smart contract platforms – ONEAfter Bitcoin, the big innovation was to have blockchains that were more programmable. These could host smart contracts or decentralized applications and have enabled Metaverse and DeFi to emerge. Ethereum (ETH) is the most popular version of a smart contract platform. We include rivals Solana (SOL), Cardano (ADA) and Avalanche (AVAX). We also include Polkadot (DOT) which enables interoperability between blockchains and the use of smart contracts over parachains.
  • Metaverse – Coins in connection with the creation of a virtual space / digital world on the Internet through a combination of augmented reality, virtual reality and social networks. One of the greatest in this field is Axie Infinity (AXS), a play-to-earn gaming platform. Another is Decentraland (MANA), a virtual world that, among other things, enables land ownership. The other three coins that we include are sandbox (SAND), Enjin Coin (ENJ) and Gala (GALA).
  • Decentralized financing (DeFi) – FiFinancial services based on Blockchain– Build networks without central intermediaries. This can be a very broad category so we’re limiting this to platforms that focus on lending and borrowing, or income farming. The five coins we selected are Aave (AAVE), Maker (MKR), Compound (COMP), Uniswap (UNI) and pancake exchange (CAKE).
