Asset Updates

ApeCoin (APE) is available to buy, top up, earn on, swap, and borrow against on the Nexo platform.

Coming from the creators of the hit Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) NFT collection, the new token is here “for culture, gaming, and commerce.” If the success of the viral BAYC is any indication for the possible bright future of the token, then APE might be in for a good run.

Yuga Labs is going full DeFi/metaverse and they’re expanding the BAYC ecosystem in an unprecedented way. We don’t know exactly what’s coming next but we sure know what Nexo’s role in this ecosystem is – we are offering one of the highest yields for holding APE. Cause you’ll need more APE in the BAYC universe.

  • Buy: Buy APE on Nexo and get up to 0.5% back on each transaction.*
  • Top Up: Transfer APE straight to your Nexo account with zero fees.
  • Earn: Get up to 9% in yields when you buy and HODL APE on Nexo.
  • Exchange: Swap APE on the Nexo Exchange. Available in six pairs.
  • Borrow: Borrow against your APE at rates as low as 0% APR.
  • Boost: Leverage your current portfolio and buy up to 3x more APE.

*The amount of crypto rewards you receive depends on your Loyalty tier. The higher your tier, the more rewards you get. For example, Platinum users get 0.5% back.

Earn up to 9% APR on ApeCoin

APE came into the crypto world with a bang, gaining 1,000% in value just hours after it entered circulation. This and APE’s popularity inspired us to come up with an equally amazing opportunity for hodlers.

You can view the Loyalty tiers and the corresponding Earn rates below:

Borrow Against Your APE

No, we don’t mean borrow against your BAYC NFT, although on Nexo you can do that too. As soon as you have your first APE tokens on Nexo, you can use them as collateral to borrow cash or stablecoins. Gold or Platinum users can get rates as low as 1.9% and 0% APR, respectively, on their crypto credit line and borrow up to $2M with no credit checks required.

You get instant approval and you can pay off your balance on your own schedule.

About ApeCoin

If you know anything about NFTs you most likely have heard about the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC). Yuga Labs, the creators of the NFT collection and one of the biggest players in the market, have issued ApeCoin for use within the APE Ecosystem. Holding ApeCoin makes you a member of the ApeCoin DAO which in turn gives you voting rights on the governance of the Ecosystem Fund.

And now for the trivia. In a surprise move to everyone, last week Yuga Labs announced that it had purchased CryptoPunks and Meebits from Larva Labs. To understand the enormity of the deal consider this – CryptoPunks and Bored Apes are among the top NFT collections by sales and capitalization. In a nutshell, Yuga now controls NFTs with around $5.5B in market cap. Only time will tell how big of an impact the Ape Ecosystem will have on the development of Web3 but it sure looks like you don’t want to miss out.


The exact rates of interest, depending on the user’s Loyalty tier, and bonuses applicable for fixed terms and/or earning in NEXO Tokens, are indicated on the Nexo platform.

Nexo Earn Interest Product is not available for persons who are citizens or residents of Bulgaria, Estonia, the States of New York, Kentucky, Arkansas, Texas, New Jersey, Alabama, Oklahoma, Vermont, and Washington.
