What is MINA crypto?
The MINA crypto is the native token of Mina Protocol, and it acts as a utility token as well as a medium of exchange. Notably, Mina claims to be the world's lightest blockchain, and it uses advanced cryptography instead of brute computing force.
Generally, blockchains are heavy and require intermediaries to run nodes for verification. However, the entire blockchain's size is 22kb, which allows users to connect peer-to-peer, sync, and verify the change.

Users of Mina Protocol validate transactions like a full node while syncing the chain, and anyone can take part in proof-of-stake consensus.
Last year, Polygon and Mina Foundation announced that they would enable privacy-preserving applications on Polygon. Both the networks announced they would bring enhanced privacy, verifiability, and privacy.
