The rally saw NEXO hit highs of $2.95. Following the rapid rally, NEXO has consolidated. Over the last 24 hours, NEXO has dropped by 2% and now trades at $2.79. Nexo is ranked as the 74th largest crypto with a market cap of $1.561 billion.
Nexo has been expanding its lending and savings platform by adding support for more crypto. To support the upcoming parachain launch, Nexo launched support for Polkadot (DOT), offering up to a 17% yield. Nexo began integrating Polkadot into its system as early as June.
The Polkа-promo, as dubbed by Nexo, is an instant high-yield alternative to liquidity staking. Users get up to 17% APR on DOT for holding Polkadot in their Nexo account. In addition, users get paid out daily.
Earlier in October, Nexo added support for Solana (SOL), allowing its users to buy, swap, borrow against, and earn up to 8% interest on their SOL coins. In addition, users can now top up and withdraw their $ADA, $DOT, and $DOGE held on Nexo.
Nexo was featured at the October edition of Money 20/20 USA, the world’s largest fintech show held in Las Vegas. From October 24 to 27, thousands of industry leaders, developers, and enthusiasts gathered for networking and content sharing.
Supporting the entrance of females in the growing fintech industry, the Head of Corporate Finance at Nexo, Tatiana Metodieva, joined the Money 20/20’s RiseUp initiative, a program that fosters gender inclusivity within the fintech industry.
Nexo has also expanded the services offered by its Mobile Wallet App. The updated Nexo Wallet App allows users to track real-time price changes of all supported assets inside the Nexo app.
In addition, users can read up-to-date news on all the crypto they hold in their portfolio without leaving the app. A new personalization feature also allows app users to arrange their dashboards with new filters to see their favorite coins first and hide other assets.
One of the biggest events on the Nexo network is the development of its Prime Brokerage. While the Prime Brokerage suite may still be undergoing beta testing, users were given an exclusive opportunity to test drive it at the Money 20/20 USA.
The Nexo Prime brokerage suite will provide investors with a full suite of services for trading, borrowing, lending, and securely storing digital currencies. In July, Nexo announced that the suite would have Chainlink-powered audits to give its operations more transparency.
Nexo has teased the addition of a new crypto to its flagship Earn Crypto Interest suite. While there is no news on when the crypto will be listed or what the token would be, the Nexo community is hopeful that Songbirds (SGB) is the token being teased. @XrpMonk wrote:
