Fantom’s Role in Our Vision for a Multi-chain MetaFi World

Fantom’s integration is just the latest in a series of rapid-fire listings which have turned the Nexo platform into one of the most efficient gateways to the DeFi ecosystem. Never ones to rest on our laurels, we’re constantly on the lookout for the most promising projects and we’ve noticed the exponential growth of Fantom due to the network’s speed and low fees. Fantom even briefly overtook Binance Smart Chain a few days ago to become the third-largest DeFi ecosystem by total value locked, according to DeFiLlama. We have no doubt that the healthy competition for talent, functionality, and adoption between projects will help blockchain technology scale and reach its full potential. So, onto building more of MetaFi together – the imminent multi-chain financial future in the metaverse.

Commenting on the integration, Fantom’s CEO Michael Kong said:

“For both retail users and corporate clients, Nexo plays an essential role in bridging the worlds of banking and crypto. But even more, as they innovate in that space, they’ve succeeded in outperforming banks in customer support and services. We are thrilled to be working and community-building with them.”
