Crypto platform Scratch, which specializes in NFTs and DeFi services, has officially launched the eponymous coin. Investors can use Scratch tokens to take out loans with NFTs as collateral, CryptoMonday learned from a press release. It is also possible to stake Scratch Token to earn dividends.

At first, the token could only be found on the crypto exchange Uniswap. Now, it has also received approval from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and the launch also coincides with the completion of Certik’s security audit of the platform. Certik is the leading security platform in the DeFi and blockchain space. So it is expected that Scratch Coin will now be available on centralized marketplaces.

“It is clear that NFT valuations in the record months of 2022 – outperforming even cryptocurrencies – show that the NFT industry is being taken seriously around the world. It’s amazing to see that people are realizing that this technology can not only be fun, but serious and life-changing for the artists and communities that are so passionate about NFTs. Currently, it’s difficult for anyone to evaluate NFTs on a large scale. But with future product development versions of Scratch Platform, it is possible and may open up new financial applications for NFTs. The Scratch Token – which launches today with a limited run – will help enable these applications,” said Shawn Owens, co-founder of Scratch.
