Did you know that Chainalysis expects to raise $100 million venture capital at a $1 billion valuation in a fast-approaching Series C. Led by VC newcomer Addition with participation expected from Accel, Benchmark and Ribbit, the round could propel the blockchain analysis startup to unicorn status (a rarity for crypto). Several governments, banks, regulators and crypto firms rely on Chainalysis technology, seen in the company’s financial status: The firm increased its customer base 65% from Q3 2019 to Q3 2020. In other blockchain sleuthing news, analytics firm Coinfirm found government agents frequently leave behind “substantial” amounts of forked cryptos in seized wallets. Finally, CipherTrace has filed for two patents related to sniffing out privacy-preserving monero (XMR) transactions.

Defi Swap Integration

News just in did you know that Crypto dot com is revealing it has introduced a built-in swap function in the DeFi Wallet app using our DeFi Swap Protocol. Powered by CRO, DeFi Swap is designed to be the best place to swap and farm DeFi tokens, boosting your yield by up to 20x.

With the swap function integrated into the DeFi Wallet, users can exchange tokens directly on the DeFi Wallet app. This integration greatly improves the mobile swap experience, allowing users to connect their DeFi Wallet to DeFi Swap without having to use WalletConnect.

The built-in swap function on DeFi Wallet will support swap pairs in Ethereum (ETH), Coin (CRO), Dai (DAI), among many other ERC-20 tokens.

Visit our FAQ for the full list of supported tokens and more details about the swap function.

To access the pool and boost function, users must connect their wallet to the DeFi Swap Protocol via WalletConnect to add liquidity and stake CRO to harvest CRO yields. DeFi Wallet is the best place to securely manage and swap DeFi tokens. Launched earlier this year, it gives users full ownership of their private keys, offering them convenient access to our decentralized finance ecosystem powered by CRO.
