I'm always on the lookout for new and exciting crypto projects, and I'm curious to hear what everyone else is following. Here are a few of my favorites:

- Bitcoin (BTC): The OG of crypto, Bitcoin is still the most popular and widely-accepted cryptocurrency.
- Giddy (GDDY): Giddy is a decentralized finance (DeFi) platform that makes it easy to buy, sell, and earn crypto. They are making crypto so easy that your Grandma could do it!

What are your favorite crypto projects? Let me know in the comments below!

I'm also interested in hearing about projects that are still in the early stages. I'm always on the lookout for the next big thing, and I'm sure there are some great projects out there that I haven't heard of yet.
