Dissecting Crypto Assets: Which Ones Does Pop Offer?

Blockchain technology comes with many crypto assets that fulfil a variety of roles. See which ones you can find on Pop.

Blockchain technology gives us the ultimate power of vigilance. With this technology, we can track anything and everything from start to end and the entire journey in the middle. We can track data, processes, transactions, product journeys, and so much more. More importantly, we are guaranteed that the record is genuine, unfiltered, and trusted. Adding on, privacy and transparency are delivered as well.

What allows us to do more on a blockchain besides just storing information is granted through the use of cryptographic assets within the blockchain itself. These come in the form of unique digital assets known as tokens. The crypto universe is filled with all kinds of digital assets. Some have a dedicated role to fulfill within their respective blockchain ecosystems. In contrast, others play multiple roles within and between multiple blockchain networks.

There are many operations a crypto asset can perform. They can be platform tokens that give users governance power. They can hold utility features or act as securities, or they can simply hold monetary value and help process transactions on a blockchain. For instance, Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency that is only used to transact payments. Meanwhile, some tokens and cryptocurrencies have multiple roles depending on how they are used.

Crypto assets help us accomplish more with blockchain technology

Let's take Ether (ETH) and Cardano (ADA) for example. Both these tokens are cryptocurrencies. They hold monetary value and can be used to process transactions on their blockchains. They can be traded, bought, and sold. They can also be staked to redeem governance power. Crypto assets can fulfil many requirements and all these can be tracked and traced, thus providing accountability.

Crypto Tokens 101

So what is the difference between a cryptocurrency and a token? This is simple. If a crypto asset runs on its own blockchain, then it is a cryptocurrecy. Examples include Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Cardano (ADA), Polkadot (DOT), and Solana (SOL). In contrast, crypto assets that run on existing blockchain qualify as tokens. Examples include Compound (COMP), MakerDAO (DAI), and Chainlink (LINK).

Now that we understand cryptocurrencies and tokens, let's give stablecoins a moment in the spotlight. Stablecoins refer to crypto tokens that have their value pegged or tied to that of another currency or commodity. For example, Tether (USDT) is pegged to the US dollar. This means that for every USDT, there is a US dollar to back up its value. Similarly, Tether Gold (XAUT) is backed by the value of existing gold.

Crypto assets come in the form of many different crypto coins

The crypto assets we have gotten acquainted with so far have all been digital crypto coins. There are other crypto assets within the blockchain space that come in the form of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT). These types of tokens cannot be split and are usually only traded as a whole. They are the opposite of fungible tokens like Bitcoin and Ether. To put it simply, one can buy a part of a Bitcoin or Ether but not a part of an NFT.

NFTs are unique and come in different forms. This can be digital art, digital collectibles, digital tickets or passes, audio and video files, domain names, gifs, gaming items, and much more. NFTs, like other crypto assests mentioned above, can be bought, sold, traded, and transferred within the crypto and NFT market or to other NFT collectors. The value of each NFT is not fixed and changes with the market, just like cryptocurrency.

Non-Fungible Tokens are another type of crypto asset

Lastly, we will shed some light on Soulbound tokens (SBTs). These tokens are digital identity tokens. They can hold personal data and records of the individual that owns them. This data can be the holder's personal achievements throughout their time on the platform or from before. It can also carry information about the holders personal traits and features. SBTs are a huge breakthrough for digital verification and identification. These tokens prove the capabilities of its owner and they can never be traded or sold.
