Term Definition

The 0x protocol is an open standard for building decentralized exchanges (DEXs) on the Ethereum blockchain. Launched in 2018, 0x enables developers to incorporate peer-to-peer (P2P) digital asset exchange into platforms and decentralized apps (dApps). 0x's native token is ZRX, which gives holders participation rights in 0x platform governance.

0x Protocol
0x is an Ethereum-based open-source platform for exchanging cryptocurrencies. It allows for the creation of features in a decentralized exchange (DEX), a wallet or a marketplace.

The 1inch liquidity protocol is an automated market maker (AMM) that is designed to increase liquidity and make use of virtual balances in order to decrease impermanent loss. Users can benefit from providing tokens as liquidity on the 1inch platform through a process that's called liquidity mining whereby traders provide assets like ether (ETH) to a specific pool, lock it in, and earn 1INCH, the native token of the 1inch platform, as interest. This model is similar to native exchange tokens like Uniswaps UNI, and incentivizes community-based liquidity provision.

3D Model Rendering
3D model rendering is the process of creating a virtual image or animation by using varying digital texture, color, and lighting software. The modeling process uses data points to represent objects in three-dimensional space, which is then rendered from 3D models into 2D images through a computationally heavy process.
401k Plan

A 401(k) plan is a retirement savings program sponsored by US companies where employees contribute part of their income and the employer matches the contributions.

80/20 Rule (Pareto Principle)
The 80/20 rule, commonly known as Pareto Principle, states that 20% of your actions account for 80% of results.

Aave is a decentralized lending and borrowing platform on Ethereum. Aave users can take out loans by providing collateral in the form of crypto assets. Lenders who provide collateral to Aave receive aTokens in return, which automatically pay interest to the holder with funds earned from platform trading fees. Aave has pioneered the technology of flash loans, which allow for the uncollateralized lending of funds, so long as the principal is repaid within the same Ethereum transaction block.

AAVE Token
The AAVE token is an Ethereum-based ERC-20 asset used as the governance token of the Aave blockchain protocol. AAVE token holders have the ability to propose changes and vote to approve or deny new proposals to the Aave protocol. With significant enough distribution, AAVE tokens are intended to eventually accommodate the autonomous and decentralized governance of the Aave platform.
Abenomics is the economic strategy implemented by Shinzo Abe of Japan and is comprised of three arrows: monetary policy, fiscal stimulus and structural reforms.
Abnormal Return
Abnormal return refers to the unusual profits from certain assets or securities over a specific time period.
Absolute Advantage

Absolute advantage is a situation in which a company can produce the same product as other companies using fewer resources.

Absolute Return
The term absolute return refers to the return on investment (whether positive or negative) obtained in a specific period of time.
Absolutely Phenomenal

A phrase commonly used by Dave Rahman of EverEarn while speaking in AMAs and Community Chats.

Abstract is something that exists in thought as an idea.
Acala USD Stablecoin (aUSD)
The Acala USD stablecoin (aUSD) is a stablecoin that is pegged to the U.S. dollar on a 1:1 ratio that operates on the Acala Network blockchain. aUSD facilitates the Acala Network's operation and is essential to the Acala decentralized finance (DeFi) platform. Users can borrow aUSD after they deposit cryptocurrency assets such as bitcoin (BTC), ether (ETH), or polkadot (DOT) through a Collateralized Debt Position (CDP) from the Honzon stablecoin protocol.
Accepting Risk (Acceptance)
Accepting risk, also known as risk acceptance, is a risk management strategy employed by companies to accept risks linked to certain events instead of investing resources to tackle them.
Account (aka address)

An entity that can receive, hold, and send funds; can be owned either by a person with the private keys or by a smart contract

Account Abstraction Layer (AAL)

The Account Abstraction Layer (AAL) is the technical infrastructure that makes smart contract development possible on the Qtum blockchain. The foundational layer of Qtum follows the UTXO model used on blockchains such as Bitcoin. The AAL on Qtum allows the accounts model used on Ethereum to be abstracted or transferred in order to work on top of the UTXO model. Qtum's AAL is the computing go-between that allows the UTXO and accounts models to interact.

Account Balance
Account balance refers to the amount in a bank/cryptocurrency account that can be accessed immediately. On the other hand, in accounting, account balance refers to the sum obtained from the difference between all debit and credit transactions posted to a company's account.
Account Model
The account model is a blockchain architecture that features direct information and value transfer. Smart contract platforms such as Ethereum use the account model as opposed to the UTXO model used by the Bitcoin network, which limits the capabilities of smart contracts. One potential downside of the account model architecture is difficulty in scaling transactions per second (TPS).
