Token Security

The NEXO Token does not have a rebase mechanism nor is it an elastic supply token. There is a Max Supply of 1 Billion Tokens with 560 Million currently in circulation. It’s supply is pretty well spread out with a presence in multiple centralized and decentralized exchanges.

Project

The NEXO Token is a Utility Token that allows for Borrowing, Staking, Governance, and Boosting APRs on Stable and Crypto Pairs with more features to launch in the future. The Platforms Primary market is lending however, in which it’s a leader in the centralized space.

“Nexo delivers the World’s First Instant Crypto-backed Loans, thus resolving a crucial inefficiency for the crypto world. Up to this very moment, no alternatives existed for digital asset owners to enjoy their crypto wealth except selling them. The innovative model of Nexo brings to the crypto community the best of both worlds - retaining 100% ownership of their digital assets while having immediate access to cash. The Instant Cryptobacked Loans are an automatic, flexible and cost-efficient way of obtaining liquidity that is secured by the value of the client’s digital assets. The whole process is completed in just a few simple clicks. No hidden fees, no capital gains taxes, no credit checks. Transparency is guaranteed through the use of blockchain technology, smart contracts and algorithmic processes executed by the Nexo blockchain oracle.”

Co-Investment Reasoning

NEXO is a top 100 Token and garners consistent volume with relatively low levels of liquidity on DEXs. A 250K Co-Investment will allow Bancor to become the #1 Pool and earn high yields. In the 24HR rate in the picture below it would appear that the Liquidity to Volume Ratio is 2:1 but looking at past data it’s usually more of a 1:1 with some outliers that are remarkably higher than that even.

Disclosure: I am a NEXO holder

Good proposal. FYI, Nexo offers 7% to NEXO holders on their platform and this goes up to 12% fixed term for those that lock up for 1 year (they compound daily). As long as we maintain competitive yields then this should attract NEXO holders.

I’ve had personal experience with Nexo. It was good; I was initially skeptical, and thought they were likely scamming me, but no! That’s not at all what happened, and I was actually very pleased with the service. Though notably, I signed up for their card and I haven’t heard anything about that since. Would really like that, but I’m getting off-track–and a service that I haven’t used because it hasn’t been opened up yet doesn’t really affect, in any significant manner, my opinion of the company in question; that would be absurd.

Their service is a good example (among many, I’m sure) of what centralized entities can do for defi. For those who skipped most of the proposal (WHY?!), Nexo does collateralized loans; sort of like Maker but more centralized (if a cabal of mostly nameless MKR whales is decentralized) and you can work with smaller amounts (last I checked; admittedly, I haven’t used their service in a while).

Nexo would be an excellent candidate for whitelisting, and this proposal will have my support.

One other thought, we already whitelisted Celsius and have some small liquidity in our exchange. We also have whitelisted Crypto.com although that pool doesn’t have much liquidity. I think it is a no brainer for us to whitelist Nexo since it is another major CeFi player. The only other one that comes to mind is BlockFi but they don’t have a token.
