2. Governance Tokens
Governance tokens are used to vote on a project's governance. For example, governance token holders can influence the level of fees a project can charge on token swaps.
3. Payment Tokens Payment tokens focus on payments as their main use case. These tokens are often not considered to be "real" cryptocurrencies since they tend to be more centralized.
4. Memecoins A memecoin is a cryptocurrency that was created as a joke and with no obvious utility. For example, Dogecoin and Shiba Inu are two popular memecoins.
5. Stablecoins Stablecoins are cryptocurrencies that are pegged to currencies like the dollar and are often backed with collateral in fiat currencies. Stablecoins are not "real" altcoins since their value does not oscillate like other cryptocurrencies.
