Traders can now choose AAVE, Cardano, Chainlink, Compound, EOS, Monero, NEO, Polkadot, Stellar, Tezos, TRON and yearn.finance through CAPEX.com.
The 12 latest cryptocurrencies come in addition to the broker’s solid portfolio of crypto assets, which already included CFDs on Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Spot, Ethereum USD, Ethereum EUR, Litecoin USD, Litecoin EUR, and Ripple, bringing in the total to 21.
Launched in 2017, Aave is a decentralised finance protocol allowing people to lend and borrow crypto. Lenders earn interest by depositing digital assets into specially created liquidity pools. Borrowers can then use their crypto as collateral to take out a flash loan using this liquidity.
Cardano is an open-source project founded in 2017 aiming to “redistribute power from unaccountable structures to the margins to individuals”, thus creating a more secure, transparent, and fair society.
Founded in 2017, Chainlink is a blockchain abstraction layer enabling universally connected smart contracts. Chainlink allows blockchains to securely interact with external data feeds, events, and payment methods through a decentralised oracle network, providing the critical off-chain information needed by complex smart contracts to become the dominant form of digital agreement.
Compound is a decentralised finance (DeFi) lending protocol launched in 2018, allowing users to earn interest on their cryptocurrencies by depositing them into one of several pools supported by the platform.
EOS is a platform launched in 2018 and designed to allow developers to build decentralised apps (known as DApps for short).
Monero was launched in 2014 with a simple goal: allowing transactions to take place privately and anonymously. XMR is designed to obscure senders and recipients alike through advanced cryptography.
Neo bills itself as a “rapidly growing and developing” ecosystem that has the goal of becoming the foundation for the next generation of the internet — a new economy where digitised payments, identities and assets come together. Launched in February 2014, it was believed to be China’s first-ever public blockchain.
Polkadot, founded by the Web3 Foundation, is an open-source sharding multichain protocol facilitating the cross-chain transfer of any data or asset types and making a wide range of blockchains interoperable with each other.
Stellar, launched in 2014, is an open network that allows money to be moved and stored. Its key priority is to help financial firms connect through blockchain technology.
Tezos is a blockchain network based on smart contracts offering a more advanced infrastructure. This open-source platform launched in 2018.
TRON is a blockchain-based operating system aiming to ensure this technology is suitable for daily use. It is a decentralised platform focused on content sharing and entertainment, claiming to have a network with a capacity for 2,000 TPS.
Launched in February 2020, yearn.finance is an aggregator service for decentralised finance (DeFi) investors, using automation to allow them to maximise profits from yield farming. Its goal is to simplify the ever-expanding DeFi space for a broad range of investors.
