Nexo.io adds Matic to their “Earn Crypto Interest” suite with 20% APY

Holders of Matic, can now earn up to 20% APY as lending and borrowing platform Nexo.io adds Polygon’s Matic to their collection of assets.

Nexo was founded in 2018 and is one of the more established lenders on the market. They offer up to 12% return on USDT, and 17% on DOT. As part of their launch of Matic, they are offering up to 20% until January 3, 2022. Nexo pays earnings in their own token and says they can deliver the high yields by lending out to borrowers against collateral.

Why Matic?

The Nexo team motivates their selection of Polygon as its multichain network works on top of Ethereum’s ecosystem, and it allows communication with other blockchains. Also, with the growing importance of parachains, Nexo wants to future proof their success.

The Nexo team also plans to use the Polygon network for more projects, including a metaverse service to maximise the usage of NFTs, but also to create new financial services.
