RAI by Reflexer Labs
RAI is a non-pegged, ETH backed stable asset built by Reflexer Labs. RAI is designed to be protected from drastic market shock with minimized governance, providing a new way to earn APY while reducing volatility for DeFi users.
Zora is a marketplace to buy, sell, and trade limited-edition goods. Backed by VTF Capital and Variant Fund, Zora is building tools for creators to issue tokens around their creative practices and transferring power from corporations and platforms back to artists. By tokenizing these goods, prices can be dynamic and fractionally traded.
Cryptex is making waves by giving TCAP token holders real-time price exposure to the entire $1 trillion crypto market. TCAP is a decentralized stablecoin representative of the entire cryptocurrency complex by total market capitalization.
