The alphabetical characters that represent cryptocurrencies, often their shortened names.

A ticker is the shortened name of a cryptocurrency and is usually composed of block letters. Examples of tickers are BTC (Bitcoin), BNB (Build N Build), ETH (Ether), USDT (Tether USD), SOL (Solana), and DOGE (Dogecoin).

Not all tickers are intuitively derived from the cryptocurrency's name. Polygon's ticker is MATIC. Others like this are Cosmos (ATOM), Monero (XMR) Stellar (XLM), Cardano (ADA) and Oasis Network (ROSE).
