  • Nexo Wallet, Nexo - Nexo

    In 2018, the then newly established Nexo introduced the world to its Instant Crypto Credit LinesTM (ICCL) - the company’s flagship and the first-of-its-kind financial product to allow crypto holders to access fiat against their digital assets without selling them. With this launch, we effectively carved out the crypto lending niche and set the foundation for “Nexo 360” - full-suite retail banking services that bridge the gap between digital and traditional finance. The ICCL offering has since expanded to 18 crypto collateral options, with credits issued in 40+ fiat currencies and interests as low as 5.9%. It has also served as the backbone for our comprehensive service that lets our now 1M+ users fully manage their fiat and digital assets from within the comfort of our user-friendly mobile application. Launched in 2019, it gives users access to their Nexo Wallet on the go, send and receive funds instantly 24/7, and meet liquidity needs immediately, with zero fees and no credit checks. Despite these successes and innovations and against the backdrop of the COVID-19 crisis, 2020 was our best year yet. We added the much anticipated Earn on Crypto and Fiat suite, which allows our users to earn up to 12% interest on their assets, whether they be crypto, stablecoins, or fiat. With this, we ticked the “savings”, “passive income” and “borrowing” boxes of retail banking. Later in 2020 came our proprietary in-app exchange, which allows immediate and limitless conversion between 100+ crypto and fiat currency pairs via its Smart Routing System. The latter innovation simultaneously allows us to connect to multiple exchanges and split orders depending on price per volume to provide a fixed quote at order submission, thus ensuring no price fluctuations occur as with most exchanges. The Nexo Exchange was pre-released in December, with full release due on February 1, 2021. In December also began the distribution of the Nexo Card - another world-first, as the only virtual and physical credit card to allow users to directly spend their crypto-collateralized fiat. We thus added “trading” and “spending in the ‘real world’” capabilities to our offering, closing the retail banking service circle all within a single platform serving as a drawbridge between digital and traditional finance. All our services are provided within a transparent, secure framework driven by blockchain-based automated processes. The security of our users’ funds is further guaranteed by authentication features, such as biometric-based identity verification and segregated multi-signature cold wallets, as well as through thorough KYC and AML checks. Our information security management system has also been successfully audited by CISQ and RINA, ensuing in an ISO/IEC 27001 certificate. Thanks to these developments, we now manage over $15B in assets for over 1.5 million users across 200+ jurisdictions, while our native NEXO token’s price has gone up by 420% in the last quarter of 2020 alone.
