Coin: The coin category refers to cryptocurrencies that aim to solve the problems of modern day fiat currencies, providing benefits like decentralization, improved safety, lower transaction fees, and faster confirmation speeds. The most popular coin cryptocurrency is Bitcoin. The value of coin cryptocurrencies lies in its ability to act as a medium of exchange.

Blockchain Platform: The Blockchain platform category refers to Blockchain projects that provide a platform upon which developers can create applications using the underlying Blockchain.

Blockchain Application: The Blockchain application category refers to Blockchain projects that have specific use cases. These could either utilize their own Blockchain, or exist on a Blockchain platform as a “dApp”. Blockchain application assets grant the right to use and participate in its use cases, and its value lies in the application’s ability to perform its function.
