Stellar Lumen (XLM)
Launched in 2014, Stellar is a distributed payments network for currencies and payments, enabling quick, cross-border transactions between any pair of currencies. It is designed so all the world’s financial systems can work together on a single network. The native digital currency of Stellar, XLM, powers the entire range of operations on the blockchain network.
Cardano is a decentralized blockchain platform for smart contract development, which is built on Ouroboros, a proof-of-stake consensus protocol.

The token is named after Ada Lovelace, a nineteenth-century mathematician who is recognized as the first computer programmer.
Compound is an Ethereum token that enables community governance of the Compound protocol, one of an emerging number of decentralized finance protocols. The protocol is a series of decentralized interest rate markets that allow users to supply and borrow Ethereum tokens at variable interest rates.
Uniswap is a protocol for creating liquidity and trading ERC-20 tokens on the Ethereum Blockchain. Uniswap tokens are exchanged through liquidity pools that are defined by smart contracts, which facilitate the swapping of tokens and enable liquidity.
