Internet Computer (ICP) is a decentralized blockchain network that was officially launched in May 2021 by the DFINITY Foundation with a global goal to push the boundaries of Internet functionality and support smart contract development at a larger scale. Among the advantages of the project include a skilled team of crypto enthusiasts and the capability for smart contracts, allowing developers to create dApps. Moreover, ICP supports almost endless scalability and a high level of security maintained through a system of checks.
ORCA is a Solana token that governs the Orca decentralized exchange. Orca aims to enable low-fee, near-instant token swaps using an automated market maker (AMM) model. On the exchange, users supply tokens to “liquidity pools” and algorithms set market prices based on supply and demand. ORCA can be used to vote on the future of the protocol.
Spell Token (SPELL) is a reward token associated with abracadabra.money, a lending platform that uses interest-bearing tokens (ibTKNs) as collateral to borrow a USD-pegged stablecoin called Magic Internet Money (MIM). Abracadabra uses the Kashi Lending Technology pioneered by SushiSwap (SUSHI) to provide isolated lending markets that allow users to adjust their risk tolerance according to the collateral they decide to use. Users can deposit collateral and borrow MIM against it. Abracadabra also offers yield farming opportunities, where users can stake their liquidity provider (LP) tokens to farm SPELL. This facilitates better liquidity for certain cryptocurrency pairs, currently Ether (ETH)-Spell Token (SPELL) and Magic Internet Money (MIM)-LP 3pool Curve (3CRV). Furthermore, users can also open leveraged farming positions using borrowed MIM from their interest-bearing collateral.
Origin Protocol is a web3 protocol with the mission to bring non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and decentralized finance (DeFi) to the masses. After the Origin team has been building consumer-friendly products in the blockchain space for years, they learned that decentralized commerce would satisfy needs that users cannot fulfill with centralized alternatives. This can happen in the form of NFTs as digital collectibles or for financial applications.
