Dezentralized Exchange  

As the ecosystem on the Ethereum network thrived, the efficiency of this ecosystem grew increasingly dependent on an underlying decentralized exchange functionality. 0x implemented a combination of off-chain order-relay and on-chain settlement to provide users with the frictionless exchange functionality of tokens through globel liquidity pools.

 The Problem Being Solved 

 Asset Overview 

This smart economy enables the seamless decentralized exchange of crypto assets in addition to the integration of dApps (relayers) that provide users with customisable products and services. As custody and fungibility of token is a core aspect of a crypto asset's adoption, 0x enables token holders to exchange tokens directly without compromising custody.

AION

aion.network

Interoperability

Today, there are hundreds, tomorrow there will be thousands of blockchains. Communication between blockchain is difficult, which hinders decentralisation and scalability. Blockchains will need to federate data and value in a hub-and-spoke model similar to the internet. Mainstream blockchain adoption will be achieved by a federated blockchain like AION to integrate these separate actors.

 The Problem Being Solved 

 Asset Overview 

At the root of the AION network is a purpose-built, public, third-generation blockchain called Aion-1. Designed to connect other blockchains and manage its own robust applications, Aion-1 also provides the economic system that incentivises interoperability in the ecosystem. AION tokens are the fuel used to create new blockchains, monetise inter-chain bridges, and secure the overall network.

BTC

bitcoin.org

Payment
Store of Value
Smart Contracts

Bitcoin solved the reversibility and double-spending problem, thereby eliminating the need for a trusted third party that could willingly or unwillingly reverse or double-spend transactions. Due to its significant market dominance and number of trading pairs, Bitcoin is currently also regarded to be a store of value. This also shows that the original use-case as a means of payment has shifted lately.

 The Problem Being Solved 

 Asset Overview 

Bitcoin’s distributed network protocol enables payments between users without passing through a central authority by verification based on cryptography. The network is secured by a proof-of-work consensus algorithm that is backed and proven by math and runs on thousands of computers around the globe. To date, it has never had a downtime or has been hacked.

DASH

dash.org

Payment

Privacy

Physical cash is still widely recognized as a payment mechanism, although some countries are heading towards a cashless economy. Sweden is one of the most cashless societies to date. Therefore, digital cash will become increasingly important. Dash’s main focus is on digital cash and mainstream adoption.

 The Problem Being Solved 

 Asset Overview 

Dash is one of the oldest cryptocurrencies, created as a fork of Litecoin in 2014. It’s original intent was to provide anonymity, which was missing in the Bitcoin network. Therefore, PrivateSend was introduced to generate anonymity using a coin-mixing approach. Additionally, the protocol has a feature for almost instantaneous transactions called InstantSend.

EOS

eos.io

Smart Contracts 

One of the most discussed topics at the moment is scalability, which is one of the main challenges to reach mass adoption. EOS is a high throughput, zero fees, and user-facing general-purpose platform for large-scale dApps. EOS offers maximum flexibility for developers, which cannot be found in other smart contract platforms like Ethereum.

 The Problem Being Solved 

 Asset Overview 

EOS is a decentralized operating system for blockchain-based applications. It attempts to provide developers with tools they are accustomed to when developing web applications. When EOS successfully implements its operating system, end-users of dApps can interact through user-friendly interfaces, much like websites, as opposed to command-line setups.

ETH

ethereum.org

Smart Contracts

Businesses depend on both trust and reputation when transacting with others, as the enforcement of legal contracts can be costly and lengthy. The logic behind these transactions however, is very simple and can often be represented by: “If X (event) happens, transfer Y (amount) of tokens to Z (recipient).” Ethereum converts that into an immutable smart contract, which is then stored on the Ethereum blockchain.

 The Problem Being Solved 

 Asset Overview 

Ethereum is an open source network that enables the creation of smart contracts. Smart contracts are transfers of value contingent upon verifiable events and executed automatically by the network. Furthermore, Ethereum has become a platform used for fundraising by many of the digital applications in the distributed ledger technologies (DLT) ecosystem by creation of the ERC20 token standard.

NEO

neo.org

Smart Contracts

NEO’s smart contracts can be coded in both Java and C#, two of the most popular programming languages that allow for simple access to smart contracts. The proximity to and importance of regulation can be seen by their cooperation with e.g. Chinese certificate authorities to map real-world assets using NEO’s smart contracts.

 The Problem Being Solved 

 Asset Overview 

As China’s first public crypto asset, it aims to create a smart economy (smart contract platform) that is both regulatory compliant as well as directed towards industrial use due to its scalability capabilities. The project is backed by large contributors such as the Alibaba Group and poses to be one of the strongest competitors for Ethereum.

XLM

stellar.org

Payments 

Traditional digital transactions, especially cross-border, are currently very expensive. Furthermore, liquidity issues in ICO markets are often a limiting factor for investors. Stellar addresses both problems and could establish itself as a leading payment currency, not only in low-cost financial services for the unbanked, but also for a wide range of financial institutions.

 The Problem Being Solved 

 Asset Overview 

Stellar is a protocol infrastructure focusing on remittances, mobile payments, low-cost financial services, and micropayments. The protocol uses a consensus algorithm called Stellar Consensus Protocol (SCP), which is a rewritten version of the federated byzantine agreement (FBA) algorithm used by Ripple, from which Stellar was originally forked.

ZEC

z.cash

Payment

Smart Contracts

Privacy

The idea of the project was to integrate privacy functionality absent in the Bitcoin protocol, while maintaining the positive elements of the Bitcoin network such as the proof-of-work consensus or the finite supply of 21m tokens. Therefore, Zcash allows for standard transactions, which are transparent and so-called shielded transactions, which are private.

 The Problem Being Solved 

 Asset Overview 

Zcash is a privacy preserving digital currency and the first to use Zero Knowledge Proofs to obfuscate the identities of parties to a transaction. Zcash uses zk-SNARKs, a variant of Zero Knowledge Proofs, to prove that the conditions for a valid transaction have been met without revealing any crucial information about the addresses or values involved.
