Meanwhile Compound (COMP) is an “algorithmic, autonomous interest rate protocol” with its governance token having a market cap of $2 billion.

Lastly, Decentraland is the ethereum-powered protocol that combines virtual reality with blockchain to create a Minecraft-inspired 3D world. MANA is the money of Decentraland, used to buy digital real estate and other virtual items.
