Launched in July 2020, AnySwap was designed to support the exchange of tokens across various platforms as a completely distributed protocol.
Anyswap, one of many emerging networks in the DeFi market, enables cross-token trading and swaps. XRP, Litecoin, and Tether are just a few of the cryptocurrencies that have integrated Anyswap, which is present in 95% of them.
Thanks to Fusion’s Decentralized Control Rights Management (DRCM) technology, Anyswap can better control the flow of token migration between blockchains. Anyswap’s token enables users to exchange coins instantly. Additionally, holders of the ANY token are free to choose which coins should be listed on its decentralized exchange, Anyswap DEX.

- Distinct Features: The Frax Protocol is a community-driven stablecoin with a distinctive design. It is a wholly decentralized protocol with onchain governance.
The Frax Protocol is the first stablecoin system based on a fractional algorithm. Currently implemented on Ethereum, Frax is open-source, permissionless, and totally on-chain (with possible cross chain implementations in the future).
The Frax protocol’s ultimate objective is to replace digital assets with a fixed supply, like Bitcoin, with a highly scalable, decentralized, algorithmic form of money.
The following ideas are incorporated into the protocol:
- Fractional-Algorithmic – Frax is a distinctive stablecoin that has some of its supply algorithmic and some backed by collateral.
- Decentralized & Minimized Governance – Community-emphasizing on an algorithmic approach with no active administration.
- Completely on-chain oracles – Uniswap (time-weighted average prices for ETH, USDT, and USDC) and Chainlink (USD price) oracles are used by Frax v1.
- Two Tokens – The stablecoin FRAX has a narrow price goal of $1 per coin. The governance token Frax Shares (FXS), which generates fees, seigniorage income, and excess collateral value
Exchange – With a 24-hour trading volume of $37,168,302, FXS is currently trading on Binance, BingX, Bybit, MEXC, and Bitget exchanges.
- Unit Price: $0.5665
- Market Cap: $100,154,819
- Distinct Features: A decentralized “game console” and publisher stack is being built by Treasure.
Through imagination, $MAGIC, and NFTs, Treasure is the decentralized video game console that links games and communities.
Some of the Infrastructures set up on the platform:
- Marketplace – Trove is a gamified NFT marketplace on Arbitrum that accepts MAGIC and ETH as payment methods.
- Economy – Through a generalized economic architecture intended to promote resource sharing and cross-metaverse interactions, Bridgeworld powers the shared economy for Treasure.
The MAGIC token serves as the glue that holds together Treasure’s emerging gaming and NFT ecosystem. The network of communities, metaverses, and DeFi infrastructure created on Treasure supports MAGIC.
As MAGIC weaves an ever-expanding web of narrative bridges within Treasure’s ecology of metaverses, it was intended for MAGIC to become increasingly rare (emissions dropping as economic complexity increases).
Exchange – With a 24-hour trading volume of $3,134,737, MAGIC is currently up for trading on OKX, BingX, MEXC, BKEX, and LBank.
