Blockchain

Description

Consensus Mechanism

Native Token

Ethereum is a decentralized blockchain platform that enables developers to build decentralized applications (dApps) and smart contracts. It was created by Vitalik Buterin and is supported by the Ethereum Foundation.

Proof of Stake (PoS)

Polygon, previously known as Matic Network, is a Layer 2 scaling solution for Ethereum. It was created by the Indian startup Matic Network, which later rebranded as Polygon to reflect its broader focus on interoperability between different blockchains.

PoS

BNB Chain, created by crypto exchange Binance, is an Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM)‐compatible blockchain built to support smart contracts and staking in parallel to the previously launched main chain, Binance Chain.

PoS

Avalanche is a blockchain platform for high throughput and fast finality, designed to enable decentralized applications and enterprise blockchain deployments. It was created by Ava Labs, a company founded by Emin Gün Sirer.

Avalanche (variation of PoS)

Fantom is a blockchain platform for fast and secure transactions, designed to enable decentralized finance and other applications. It was created by a team of developers led by Michael Kong. It uses a consensus mechanism called Lachesis, which is a variation of proof-of-stake (PoS) that uses a directed acyclic graph (DAG) to validate transactions. This enables Fantom to achieve fast and secure transactions, while also maintaining scalability and decentralization.

Lachesis (variation of PoS)

Celo is a blockchain platform for financial services to unbanked communities, designed to enable mobile payments and other applications. It was created by the Celo Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by a team of experienced entrepreneurs and blockchain experts.

PoS

Optimism is a Layer 2 scaling solution for Ethereum, designed to enable fast and cheap transactions while maintaining full compatibility with the Ethereum blockchain. It was created by a team of developers led by Jinglan Wang and Ben Jones.

Optimistic Rollup

Arbitrum is a Layer 2 scaling solution for Ethereum that aims to provide faster and cheaper transactions. It is a type of Optimistic Rollup, which means it relies on fraud proofs to ensure the integrity of transactions. This enables Arbitrum to achieve fast and secure transactions, while also maintaining compatibility with the Ethereum blockchain.

Optimistic Rollup

ETH (on Arbitrum)

Base is a Layer-2 EVM network incubated by Coinbase. It uses optimistic rollups to track the state of the Ethereum network and process transactions off-chain. As a Layer-2 solution, it offers significantly lower gas fees while benefiting from the established security of Ethereum.
