Top Projects in the Sui Blockchain Ecosystem to Watch

While Sui just launched on Mainnet earlier this month, hundreds of projects have already begun building on the Layer 1 network. We share some of the top projects we think have amazing potential to go far in the Sui blockchain ecosystem.


The highly-anticipated Sui Network — developed by former Meta engineers — launched on May 3rd. Developed by Mysten Labs and founded by those behind Move language, Sui raised US$300 million in its Series B round and gained significant traction after Tron founder Justin Sun made a $56 million TrueUSD transfer to Binance LaunchPool, likely in anticipation of the SUI token launch.

At the time of writing, SUI is trading at US$1.03, as per Coingecko, putting its market capitalization at around US$543 million. SUI is used for transaction fees and governance. The total supply of SUI tokens is 10 billion, and the initial circulating supply is 528,273,717, representing 5.28% of the total token supply.

What exactly is Sui?

Sui is a Layer-1 blockchain network that promises high transaction throughputs. Of its competitors, Sui has been compared most extensively to Layer 1s Aptos and even dubbed as the latest ‘Solana killer’. According to official Sui documentation, Sui is “reshaping the industry by achieving unprecedented speed and scalability” through its innovative parallel processing of transactions that gives the Layer 1 chain a significant edge over its competitors.

There are a few distinguishing features about Sui that sets it apart in terms of blockchain technology.

Object-centric data model

Sui adopts the object-centric data model to measure blockchain state. It is a hybrid model that combines the account method used by most smart contract platforms (i.e. Ethereum and Solana) with unspent transaction outputs used by Bitcoin to measure blockchain state.

By combining both models, Sui stores historical data in objects with globally unique IDs. This allows Sui to parallelize object interactions at scale, where validators are able to process transactions in parallel on separate machines when multiple transactions are submitted, reducing latency and giving rise to unprecedented performance.

Sui Move with safer programming experience

Recognising how Solidity and the ERC-20 token standard catalyzed blockchain communication and interoperability, the Move language was created with these foundational principles in mind. Mysten Labs modified Move soon after, calling it Sui Move, to integrate it with its object-centric data model. The modification includes bytecode verification which ensures that objects cannot be created, copied, or accidentally destroyed by code from outside its defining module, thereby creating a much safer and secure programming environment on Sui.

Consensus DAG which allows for parallel computation for transactions

Unlike most other blockchains, Sui does not validate transactions by batching them into blocks. Instead, transactions are grouped by objects and validated individually. This means that validators can process different objects’ transactions in parallel, resulting in parallel computation leading to more efficient execution of transactions and scalability.

In summary, Sui aims to solve long standing challenges faced in the DeFi landscape by reducing latency for smart contract deployment leading to faster transactions and keeping fees and transaction costs low even when demand spikes, a common pain point for Layer 1s.
