Crypto ownership has exploded in 3 years
The number of people in the U.S. who own cryptocurrencies tripled from 2018 to 2021: from about 8% to nearly 24%. Nexo is one of the largest platforms for crypto investors, which excels in fast and cheap transactions.
The renowned exchange also emphasizes security and uses the insured custody services of BitGo, Bakkt and Fidelity Digital Assets for this purpose.
Fantom CEO Michael Kong commented: “For both retail and corporate clients, Nexo plays an important role in bridging the worlds of banking and cryptocurrencies. But they have also managed to outperform banks in terms of customer support and services thanks to their innovations. We are excited to work with them and form a community.”
A variety of trading options with FTM
Nexo users will have a number of options for what they can do with the FTM coin. These include the ability to borrow Fantom starting at 0% APR, but also to lend the coins at up to 18% APR. In addition, people will be able to buy Fantom and exchange it for other cryptos.
Elitsa Taskova, Product Owner at Nexo, added: “Fantom has now surpassed Binance Smart Chain in overall value. We are now excited to offer our users access to unrivaled financial services for FTM. This is just the latest in a series of rapid listings that have made the Nexo platform one of the most efficient gateways to the DeFi ecosystem.”
Fantom ecosystem experiences strong growth
Fantom’s listing on Nexo coincides with unprecedented growth in the Fantom ecosystem. Fantom has increased its Total Value Locked (TVL) tokens by nearly two-thirds, becoming the third largest blockchain in the DeFi industry.
