Nereus has Launched!
Nereus has gone live! After months of anticipation, huge excitement from our community and an unbelievable amount of work behind the scenes, the Nereus protocol has launched.
From today, you can lend and borrow a huge variety of tokens such as AVAX and DAI, as well as stake and lock WXT. In doing so, you can receive huge WXT rewards, with the amount depending on the action you take and how long you leave it there for.
Who are Nereus?
In case you haven’t heard about us yet, Nereus is the latest DeFi protocol to launch that’s determined to stand out from the crowd. To give you a bit of background, we’ve launched on the popular Avalanche network, and offer users the ability to lend, borrow, stake and lock crypto in return for rewards. We chose Avalanche because it’s priorities closely align with ours in making blockchain more accessible, where the Avalanche blockchain is designed to be faster, cheaper and more eco-friendly.
With the growth of the metaverse and Web 3.0, we’re aiming to develop a platform that allows everyone to have easy and equal access to the benefits of DeFi.
How we Differ from Other Protocols?
It might sound like a standard protocol, but we’re aiming to build Nereus to addresses the inherent issues with many other protocols.
WXT, otherwise known as Wirex token, will be used as the token for rewarding within the protocol, thanks to a 5 billion WXT investment from Wirex. Wirex are a leading payments platform with a long-standing reputation for innovation and security within the crypto space, and are playing an important role in bridging the gap between the traditional finance and digital finance spaces, so it’s good to know we’ve got their support. More importantly, by using a token that’s been in existence since 2019 and has multiple use-cases across the Wirex ecosystem, and is already owned by million of people, you know it’s already got great credibility and is widely accessible.
Thanks to the partnership, their 4.5 million+ customers will have access to easy access to this protocol, making it the world’s first DeFi protocol aimed at the mass market.
We’re also aiming to shake up the governance mechanism, which so often favour those with the largest share. Instead, we’ll create a system that rewards the most active participants, meaning everyone has a voice and say about decisions within the protocol.
How can I get Involved?
You’ll first need some WXT (Wirex’s native token), which you can purchase on the Wirex wallet, Wirex app and many other centralised exchanges. WXT supports the open canoncial bridge standard, so you can bridge different tokens across blockchains.
Where can I find out More Information?
Community participation is at the core of our protocol, so it’s important that you stay up-to-date with the latest Nereus news, announcements and decisions, and can also discuss and contribute ideas to fellow Nereus users.
What’s Next for Nereus?
This may well be the launch of Nereus, but we see it to be constantly evolving to reflect market trends, user needs and the latest developments. In the coming months, we’re planning to expand to other blockchains, develop fixed rate APRs, leverage other synthetic tokens and much more.
Not only this but stayed tuned to find out more about the launch of our highly-anticipated Nereus Shapeshifter NFT collection; with the creation of 10,000 unique NFTs, owners will have access to a huge range of DeFi perks within the Nereus protocol, including weekly rewards and increased voting rights.
