CryptoLocally Product Update: 2020 Recap

With this decade coming to a close, we wanted to share the important milestones CryptoLocally met this year. We have been especially focused on innovating within the P2P industry by adopting DeFi and decentralized governance. Our efforts now allow users to earn automated staking interest at the click of a button, choose from a palette with 19 new tokens and +20 new payment methods. They can even voice their opinions with our governance platform — GIVernance — which made us the first truly decentralized P2P platform!

Finance Wallet

The Finance Wallet made us the first P2P crypto exchange with a DeFi offering. We believe DeFi should be easy to use, regardless of your experience in the crypto space. So, the Finance Wallet lets you earn staking rewards on mainstream cryptocurrencies like ETH, DAI, GIV, and USDC in the easiest and fastest way possible, right from the CryptoLocally platform itself. Let us save you from hours of research and work.

Finance Wallet V2

The latest version of the Finance Wallet 2.0, developed in partnership with Idle finance, uses CryptoLocally Vaults (CLVs) to revolutionize the yield farming industry and offer higher APYs than ever before. Being just as easy to use as the original Finance Wallet, Finance Wallet V2 lets anyone maximize their earning potential.

GIVernance — CryptoLocally becoming fully decentralized

With our governance platform GIVernance, we became the first fully decentralized P2P crypto marketplace. GIVernance is an invitation to all GIV holders to cohesively decide where CryptoLocally is headed. It is a governance model involving proposals, which users can create or support by voting. Any GIV holder can post proposals by creating a new topic on the forum portal and submitting it to the GIVernance portal

GIV is fundamentally designed to generate exceptionally high upsides when yield farming and have lower transaction costs (gas fees) the more it scales.
