Established in 2018, Nexo is a leading regulated financial institution for digital assets with $50B processed in assets for over 2.5M clients across 200+ jurisdictions. Our mission is to maximize the value and utility of cryptocurrencies by offering 360-degree financial services to the digital finance space: tax-efficient Instant Crypto Credit Lines™, a high-yield Earn on Crypto & Fiat suite, an in-app Exchange, sophisticated OTC and Send & Pay capabilities.
Nexo’s flagship Instant Crypto Credit Lines™ (ICCL) was the first-of-its-kind financial product to allow crypto holders to access fiat against their digital assets without selling them, effectively carving out the crypto lending niche.
The ICCL currently offers 20+ crypto collateral options, with credits issued in 40+ fiat currencies and interests as low as 6.9%.
2020 saw two launches that brought us closer to offering full-circle financial services: the Earn on Crypto and Fiat suite, which allows our users to earn up to 12% interest on their crypto assets, and our proprietary in-app exchange, which allows immediate and limitless conversion between 120+ crypto and fiat currency pairs via its Smart Routing System. We also began the distribution of the Nexo Card – another world-first, as the only virtual and physical credit card to allow users to directly spend their crypto-collateralized fiat. We thus added “spending in the ‘real world’ capabilities to our offering, completing our retail financial service all within a single platform serving as a bridge between digital and traditional finance.
Moreover, Nexo was the first crypto-lender to launch a crypto-backed NFT service in 2021 in partnership with Three Arrows Capital and the first institution in the blockchain space to offer art financing services for the asset class, where clients can borrow against their Bored Apes or Crypto Punks.
All our services are provided within a transparent, secure framework driven by blockchain-based automated processes. The security of our users’ funds is further guaranteed by an insurance portfolio totaling $375M which comes through partnerships with BitGo, Ledger Vault, and other custodians whose facilities are insured via Lloyd’s of London and Marsh and Arch. We comply with the highest authentication standards by requiring biometric-based identity verification and thorough KYC and AML checks. Our information security management system has also been successfully audited by CISQ and RINA, ensuring an ISO/IEC 27001 certificate. We have commissioned Armanino, one of the leading US accounting firms, to provide real-time attestations over the company’s custodial holding, offering unparalleled visibility into Nexo’s finances and showing that the company’s assets exceed its liabilities at all times.
