-eToro Launches DeFi Wallet, Offering Investors Instant Diversification Across Several Key DeFi Crypto Assets
LONDON, Sept. 23, 2021 / PRNewswire / – eToro, the global multi-asset investment platform, today launched a DeFi portfolio, offering investors long-term exposure to key projects in the DeFi ecosystem, enabling them to become part of one of the most innovative developments in finance.
Decentralized finance (DeFi) is a movement that aims to bypass traditional financial intermediaries by putting financial services on blockchain. Rather than simply decentralizing transactions (as is the case with Bitcoin), DeFi aims to decentralize broader parts of the financial sector. This is achieved through smart contracts, which are fragments of computer code that allow complex transfers and agreements on the blockchain without the need for the approval of a central authority body.
Wallet DeFi from eToro comprises eleven DeFi crypto assets: Ether (ETH), Uniswap (UNI), Chainlink (LINK), Aave (AAVE), Compound (COMP), Yearn.finance (YFI), Decentraland (MANA), Polygon (MATIC), Algorand ( ALGO), Basic Attention Token (BAT), and Maker (MKR).

But for people who don’t have time to research the technical report on each asset, the market can seem like a field of By packaging a selection of crypto assets into a DeFi CopyPortfolio, we are doing the heavy lifting and allowing our clients to gain exposure and spread risk across a variety of cryptocurrencies. “
EToro portfolios offer investors ready-made and fully allocated exposure to various market topics. By grouping multiple assets under a defined methodology and employing a passive investment approach, eToro portfolios are long-term investment solutions that offer diversified exposure without management fees.
“Decentralized financing is a form of blockchain-based financing that does not rely on central financial intermediaries, such as brokers, exchanges or banks, to offer traditional financial instruments, but instead uses smart contracts on blockchains,” Brinker explained. “Both blockchain smart contracts and a selection of leading protocols are included in the portfolio, allowing you to expose yourself to every corner of DeFi – from Uniswap to Yearn and beyond – without having to spend hours researching. eToro’s unique position as an innovator within the crypto domain, to revisit these projects and update the allocation and methodology later. “
