Near (Sharding & DAO as unique features)
Avalanche (DeFi yields & NFT partners)
Our role models are Ethereum (community & culture), Starkware (ZKProofs & research) and Cosmos (Wasm & cross-chain), but which other smart contract platforms should we compete directly and win against?
Games like NFTWorlds are using Polygon. OpenSea supports Polygon. Polygon suffers a confusing name change (i.e., MATIC/Polygon). Harmony has the potential to become a brand for games and NFTs (both are welcoming the next 10M users). Besides, non-EVM chain usages will be low. All-trader chains are interesting and competitive if next 10M users are traders.
Polkadot (Parachain & developer grants)
Polygon (ZKProofs & EVM ecosystem)
Solana (Centralized exchanges & DeFi)
Terra (DeFi ecosystem & stablecoins)
