Terra, Mirror, Anchor, Lido, Pylon & Mars Research
Terra is an open and transparent monetary platform built on Cosmos. It offers algorithmic stablecoins & tools to provide users with all they need to manage their money. It's gaining a lot of adoption in Asia-Pacific. TerraUSD ($UST) is their biggest stablecoin
MIRROR - synthetics partner
Mirror Protocol allows the creation of fungible assets, "synthetics", that track the price of real world assets. Mirror synthetics are intended to be used as key building blocks in smart contracts, and to bring the world's assets to the blockchain. Mirror smart contracts are built on Terra and Cosmwasm, and leverages TerraUSD as the collateral asset.
ANCHOR is a savings and borrowing platform. It pays savers a fixed 20% per year. They can pay so much because they do over-collateralized lending and then stake the collateral on major PoS networks.

How to Navigate the Cosmos Network
Hey DEFI TIMES community, Crypto isn't the small community it used to be in 2017. It has grown far beyond our expectations with thousands of communities - each of them having its own language and their own culture. One of these communities is Cosmos - a network of many different blockchains, which have their own communication standard (IBC).
Top Cosmos Projects
Hey DEFI TIMES community, Cosmos is growing at an exponential rate! And it's becoming a respectable part of the DeFi ecosystem. Cosmos aims to connect all blockchains with its Inter Blockchain Communication ( IBC) protocol. It's a protocol that allows different chains to talk to each other.
