Mercury is part of the Darcrus project. These tokens will facilitate the communication between two different blockchains, Jupiter and Waves. As a Waves token, Mercury is used to pay the fees for transactions on the Waves blockchain, allowing Jupiter blockhashes to be time-stamped on the Waves blockchain by including them on said transactions. The Jupiter permissioned blockchain has been developed by Jelurida with storage capabilities in mind and will allow any person or company to store data on the blockchain through its built-in plugins. Waves does not have the ability to store complex data sets or small files like Jupiter, but since it allows transaction fees to be paid in custom assets, it’s the perfect blockchain to store Jupiter’s blockhashes.Mercury was airdropped to anyone with at least 1 WAVES token.

Miners Reward Token (MRT)
Waves is an inflationless system with limited supply, no new coins are ever issued through mining. Instead, full nodes and leasers are rewarded with transaction fees. While keeping standard transactions fees low, and in order to incentivize more PoS mining within the network, the Waves Platform team issued the MRT asset. This asset is an extra incentive to help maintain a full node until the network becomes widely used and is also an additional option to enable miners to vote on different network settings in the near future.
Additionally, one of Waves unique features is that transaction fees can be paid in custom assets, however, nodes generating blocks have to accept the token as payment first but also need to be persuaded to do it. MRT can be used by token issuers as an automated way to distribute extra incentive to active miners. Click here to learn more about the Miners Reward Token.
WBTC is the official Waves custom token. It is possible to deposit BTC using a regular bitcoin wallet to the address displayed in your waves client. Your transfer will be processed by a Coinomat gateway, and WBTC tokens will be sent to your Waves address. The bitcoins you deposit are backed 1:1.
ByteBall once did a WBTC airdrop among WCT holders, that could explain how those WBTC slipped into your Waves wallet.
