An independent, decentralized digital asset, XRP settles payments in 3-4 seconds and can scale to handle 50,000 transactions per second, which makes it the best digital asset for cross border payments. Ripple, an enterprise blockchain company, uses XRP in one of their products – xRapid – to help banks and payment providers source liquidity on demand.
Cardano is a decentralised public blockchain and cryptocurrency project that is fully open source. Based on a project that began in 2015 as an effort to change the way cryptocurrencies are designed and developed, Cardano’s focus is to provide a more balanced and sustainable ecosystem that better accounts for the needs of its users.
Lumens are the native token of Stellar, an open network that allows any currency or asset to be digitally issued, transferred, and exchanged over the internet. The Stellar public ledger has a built-in order book, pathfinding algorithm, and network token that together allow assets to move seamlessly between participants. With investment from payment company Stripe and a partnership with IBM, Stellar is an open-source, decentralized protocol for the transfer of value globally.
Zcash is the first open, permissionless cryptocurrency that can fully protect the privacy of transactions using zero-knowledge cryptography. Aiming to make transactions more private than other cryptocurrencies, Zcash allows users to selectively disclose private information such as the sender, recipient and amount being transacted.
Enabling the creation of a decentralized exchange, 0x is an open source protocol designed for exchanging any ERC20 token on the Ethereum blockchain in a fast and cost-effective way. The 0x protocol facilitates the exchange of a growing number of Ethereum-based tokens including currencies, game items, and many more digital assets.
