About Ankr (ANKR), Curve DAO Token (CRV) and Storj (STORJ)
Ankr is a distributed computing platform helping blockchain developers to easily build and deploy different blockchain solutions in an affordable manner. ANKR is the platform native crypto token using which users can pay for the services used. There are different services hosted onto the Ankr platform like node deployment. Besides, the ANKR token also serves as an incentive for network participants.
The Curve DAO (CRV) is another Ethereum-based token that powers the decentralized exchange and automated market maker protocol Curve.fi. This protocol helps users to easily swap between similar ERC-20 tokens. It includes stablecoins like DAI and USDC as well as Ethereum-based Bitcoin tokens like WBTC and renBTC. The Curve.fi protocol also hosts pools of similar assets to minimize any impermanent loss. Furthermore, users can lock the CRV tokens for different time-periods up to 4 years. Thus, they can further vote on governance and claim the protocol fees as a reward.
Storj is another Ethereum-based decentralized token powering Tardigrade, a decentralized cloud storage network. Any file upgrades happening on Tardigrade are available to a global network of independent nodes. Thus, when any user requests a file, it gets recompiled securely and is ready for download. Tardigrade is thus revolutionizing decentralized file storage thereby reducing user dependency on centralized data storage centers. Users get rewarded in STORJ tokens for contributing resources to the network.
