Vitalik Buterin’s Ethereum has moved from plucky runner-up to serious contender for the cryptocurrency crown. Don’t believe us? Look at its children! Created as a decentralized development platform, Ethereum tech forms the basis of many popular distributed apps (dApps) and lets its creators use blockchain to craft their own open source projects. Picking through the Ethereum ecosystem grants you immediate access to the most cutting-edge decentralised finance (DeFi) tools out there and more.
We've curated this list based on symbols that seemed noteworthy to us, but we're sure there's many more cool projects out there that we've missed too. If we have, do let us know. And remember: just because something runs a smart contract, doesn't mean it's a smart trade.
