Public blockchain Avalanche (AVAX/USD)’s native token is now live on Nexo. The platform that pioneered crypto-backed credit, now allows users to trade, purchase, save, and borrow against AVAX from one place.
Comprehensive digital finance services since 2018
Nexo was founded in 2018 with a mission to provide comprehensive financial services for the world of digital assets. Having transformed into a highly efficient gateway to DeFi, it gives its growing user base of DeFi enthusiasts greater access to more and more promising ecosystems, including Avalanche.
With Nexo, you can now buy AVAX directly, or you can lend out and borrow against it. Antoni Trenchev, Co-founder and Managing Partner of Nexo, commented:
We believe that Avalanche has what it takes to help build the infrastructure needed to support all kinds of digital and tokenized assets. By integrating AVAX, Nexo is providing liquidity that will ultimately increase developer appetite in the Avalanche ecosystem and lead to its prosperity.
Fast, highly customizable DeFi ecosystem
Nexo chose Avalanche for a partnership because of the latter’s fast, highly customizable DeFi ecosystem as well as the bridge it’s developing to Ethereum (ETH/USD). This has become possible through compatibility with the Solidity programming language, which enables network participants to make transfers and connect between chains easily.
Embracing a multi-chain world
Avalanche’s impressive capacities help the space embrace the huge benefits of a world on multiple chains. This facilitates interaction between networks and helps create increased scalability and functionality.
