Dispatch #27: Morgan Stanley Bets Wealthy Clients Want Bitcoin
We’ve retired our Medium blog. For the latest news, visit nexo.io/blogIn this patch of your weekly Dispatch: - Morgan Stanley becomes the first big bank to offer Bitcoin to wealthy clients, Meet the public software company with $50M of ETH on its books, 40% of Americans want to put some of their stimulus money into BTC and stocks, The Big IdeaMorgan Stanley Opens Access to Three Bitcoin Funds - Last week we shared our thesis that we were seeing the beginning of the “next institutional wave” coming to Bitcoin. Right on cue, this week we’ve learned that Morgan Stanley is poised to open up access to not just one but three institutional BTC funds for its wealth management clients. Now, access to these funds will be restricted. Individuals must hold $2М with the bank while investment firms must hold $5М. What’s more, Morgan Stanley is capping client Bitcoin investments at 2.5% of net worth. On the flipside, these funds offer real Bitcoin exposure — not just the sort of public market versions of crypto we’ve seen before. It’s clear then that Morgan Stanley is seeing enough demand from clients to put their $4T AUM reputation on the line. The funds are managed by Galaxy Digital, FS Investments, and NYDIG and will open next month after Morgan Stanley’s financial advisors get training on the new product. This section was supposed to end here but then, early on Friday, reports emerged that Morgan Stanley...

What If All Companies With BTC Allocations Started Putting a Portion of It Into Bitcoin Development?
We’ve retired our Medium blog. For the latest news, visit nexo.io/blog “The nature of Bitcoin is such that once version 0.1 was released, the core design was set in stone for the rest of its lifetime,” Satoshi Nakamoto famously wrote on bitcointalk.org back in 2010. To an extent, that the Bitcoin protocol is conservative and rarely changes is a blessing — the fewer the alterations, the lesser the risk of bugs or systemic failures. Yet Bitcoin is far from done. The central Bitcoin design may be relatively cemented, but like any software project, the protocol requires continued maintenance. Historically, many talented developers have contributed to the core software without financial compensation. As a company whose bread and butter is Bitcoin, we are undertaking the initiative to change that in order to maintain the continued operation of the network. To that end, we have contributed $150,000 to Brink — a non-profit organization focused on supporting open-source Bitcoin development — to help continually strengthen the Bitcoin protocol and foster the developer community. The funds will be allocated towards an independent Bitcoin developer through Brink’s grant program — a project that supports the work of established Bitcoin protocol engineers. “The $150,000 donation to Brink marks Nexo’s commitment to open-source funding and supporting Bitcoin, the original cryptocurrency that spawned a tril...

Throughout the week, we saw a major sell-off, with prices getting all the way down below $45,000 on some exchanges. While most professionals attributed the particular violence of the move at least in part to over-leveraged traders, another popular narrative explanation was that the market was reacting to more negative comments from Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen who called Bitcoin “inefficient” in Monday remarks. How deliciously ironic then when on Wednesday the Fed’s real-time settlement system FedWire went offline for a number of hours. Many companies (including crypto exchanges) were stopped in their tracks as the system went down — an outage the likes of which Bitcoin hasn’t experienced in the last 2,907 days. Adding to the irony is the fact that the outage came just one day after Federal Reserve Board Chairman Jerome Powell announced that 2021 was the year the Fed started focusing on a digital dollar with diligence.

Nexo's new feature enables real-time toggling between modes within the Nexo app, providing flexibility based on users' budgets and purchase needs, according to the company's announcement on Thursday. Nexo said the newly launched service enhances the capabilities of its cryptocurrency card.
'The Nexo Card embodies the pinnacle of customer-centric innovation, cultivated from user-driven needs that Nexo has been diligently addressing over the years,' Nexo co-founder and managing partner Antoni Trenchev told Bitcoin.com News.

|Nexo Taps Mastercard to Launch a Dual Mode Crypto Card
Leading cryptocurrency platform, Nexo, has partnered with payment processing giant Mastercard to launch a first-of-its-kind Dual Mode crypto card to enable users to seamlessly handle credit and debit transactions.
According to a press release sent to CryptoPotato, Nexo customers can use the debit mode for daily transactions and switch to the credit mode for larger purchases from more than 100 million worldwide merchants that accept Mastercard.
Nexo Unveils Dual Mode Crypto Card
Nexo described the Dual Mode Card as an example of a customer-first approach and a thoughtful response to users' daily transactional needs.

With the new crypto card, Nexo users can tailor their spending to suit their preferences while accumulating up to 9% yearly interest on their holdings to be paid out daily.
Antoni Trenchev, co-founder and Managing Partner at Nexo, said: 'By bringing the first-ever Dual Mode crypto card to market, Nexo has further strengthened its position as a leading innovator in the crypto space.

|Nexo to Dissolve UK-Based Units in Restructuring Plans
Nexo – a popular cryptocurrency lending platform – is dissolving two business units based in the United Kingdom while it deals with regulatory issues in other parts of Europe and North America.
The latest steps are part of a “restructuring” effort that will still involve Nexo continuing operations within the country.
As reported by BNN Bloomberg, filings from this month show that the lender has applied to remove both Nexo Financial Services Ltd. and Nexo Clearing and Custody Ltd from the UK companies register.
In messages to Bloomberg, Nexo co-founder Antoni Trenchev explained that his company was “doing some restructuring” and “rethinking the way we go about servicing clients.”
Besides crypto trading and custody, Nexo offers a number of crypto-based financial products to its clients, including debit card services, borrowing, and savings accounts. These savings accounts can offer “up to 15% APR on your crypto,” according to its website, with yields sometimes rising as high as 7% for Bitcoin, and 12% for USDC.
Regulators in the United States have shown strong skepticism of crypto-based interest-bearing accounts, criticizing them for their unusually high savings rates compared to traditional savings accounts. Unlike chartered banks, crypto financial platforms are not covered by federal deposit insurance.
Scrutiny increased in mid-2022 after billions of dollars were lost within multi...

The Ohio Division of Securities added its name to the $22.5 million multistate settlement against the cryptocurrency lending platform Nexo.
US regulators previously alleged the firm failed to comply with local requirements when offering Earn Interest Products (EIP).
Ohio Joins the Club
The watchdog of 'the Buckeye State' issued a consent order against Nexo, thus joining other US states that claimed the cryptocurrency firm violated some rules when offering Earn Interest Products (EIP). The company promoted its option via social media channels and on its website to US consumers, saying they could obtain returns as high as 36%.
The North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA) and the SEC insisted that Nexo did not disclose vital information about the products and failed to outline the risks for investors. There were over 2,300 Ohio residents who joined the program as of the end of July 2022 and collectively distributed more than $15 million. Nexo had 93,318 EIP investors in the US who allocated approximately $800 million.
'All financial services companies, including those offering services for crypto assets, must comply with Ohio's securities laws.
In partnership with NASAA and other state securities regulators, we will continue to protect Ohioans' investments and ensure that companies operating here follow our securities laws,' Andrea Seidt - Ohio Securities Commissioner - stated.

|Nexo Reveals Date When it Will Halt Earn Program for US Customers
Nexo will stop providing its Earn Interest Product to US customers as of April 1, 2023.
This is a direct consequence of the company's recent settlement with US regulators, in which it had to pay $45 million in fines.
Recall the agreement reached between Nexo and the US SEC as well as NASAA, which 'concluded on a no-admit-no-deny basis and closed all multi-year-long inquiries' into the crypto lender.
The company now announced that it will stop the Earn Interest Product for all US customers on April 1, 2023, including residents and citizens based in '50 US States and three territories.'
Consequently, the lender advised affected clients to withdraw their assets from the program 'at a convenient time' until that date. Nevertheless, the firm's program will provide its promised interest rates until April 1.
Aside from its issues with the US government, the crypto lender has had its fair share of controversial dealings with the Bulgarian authorities.
Local prosecutors raided Nexo's offices at the start of the year. Later on, some of the country's political parties began blaming each other for the Nexo developments, as company execs had donated to one of them.
In the latest, the lender's co-founder, Antoni Trenchev, threatened to sue the government for up to $1 billion for the reputational damages it had done.

Antoni Trenchev - Co-Founder of the cryptocurrency lending platform Nexo - said the company could sue the Bulgarian government for more than $1 billion for raiding its offices and undermining its reputation.
He also refuted the rumors that members of the entity run an organized criminal group, and commit money laundering and terrorist financing operations.
'We Will Defend our Interests'
The clash between Nexo and the Bulgarian authorities escalated after Trenchev vowed to take the dispute to court:
'Our consultants estimate the damages at over $1 billion. We were in the process of listing on the American stock exchange, and now it has to be postponed because of the reputational damage that was done to us.' - he explained.
Antoni Trenchev, Source: Dnes
The executive claimed the actions of the Bulgarian prosecutors to raid the offices in the capital Sofia were 'absurd, unnecessary, and a large part of them - illegal.'
The Nexo scandal happened just a day before President Rumen Radev was about to give the third and final mandate to form an acting government. Some assumed Democratic Bulgaria (a center-right political party that pledged to cope with corruption and enforce several judiciary reforms) had the best chance of receiving the mandate.
However, it was revealed that more than a dozen Nexo employees had previously made significant donations to the aforementioned party, which might have affected the President's decision. He eventually gave the mandate to the Bu...
|Nexo Pays $45M In Penalties And Settles With US Authorities
The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has levied a $45 million fine on Nexo Capital Inc. The SEC explains the reason for the fine in a tweet,
Today we charged Nexo Capital Inc. with failing to register the offer and sale of its retail crypto asset lending product, the Earn Interest Product (EIP). To settle charges, Nexo agreed to pay $22.5 million and cease its unregistered offer and sale of the EIP to U.S. investors.
The $22.5 million fine for selling EIP to US investors. Moreover, the $22 million fine will go through settling the claims by State Regulatory Authorities. The SEC Chairman, Gary Gensler, reinforces that crypto organizations must comply with its policies. Failure to do so will allow the SEC to hold the defaulters accountable.
What Is EIP And Why The Fine? Starting in June 2020, Nexo is marketing and selling its Earn Interest Product (EIP) in the USA. Nexo operates so that it lends money to its customers, and interest becomes its primary source of income. Nexo uses this interest income to pay interest on its loans further. However, several states in the USA alleged that Nexo’s earn-interest service is not registered as a Security.
As a result, the states of California, Oklahoma, Vermont, South Carolina, Kentucky, and Maryland took the company to court. They demanded a cease-and-desist order on the company’s EIP service.
The SEC order says that Nexo used its EIP service to fund interest payments and inject it into its othe...
|Bitcoin Bulls Fight for $21K, NEXO Explodes 12% Daily (Market Watch)
Bitcoin continues to trade in a tight range of around $21,000 following yesterday's enhanced volatility, with the asset standing just inches away from that line.
Most altcoins are slightly in the green today, with XMR and Apecoin being the best performers from the larger caps. NEXO is up by double digits from the lower-cap alts after the recent settlement between the crypto lender and US authorities.
Bitcoin Challenges $21K
Bitcoin's 2023 has started on a positive note, following the violent 2022, and the cryptocurrency finally reclaimed $17,000 after weeks of struggling below that level.
This turned out to be the breakout moment the asset needed as it went on a roll in the next several days. This resulted in skyrocketing above $21,000 last Saturday for the first time in about two months.
After a relatively quiet rest of the weekend, BTC went on the offensive at the start of the working week once again. This resulted in exceeding $21,600 to make its highest price tag since September.
The bears intercepted the move and pushed bitcoin south by several hundred dollars. Since then, BTC has been unable to decisively overcome $21,000 once again and currently sits inches away from it. Nevertheless, there're now multiple on-chain signs suggesting the start of a new bull market.
BTC's market cap has remained above $400 billion, and its dominance over the alts sits tight at 41.4%.

|Nexo Agrees to Pay $45 Million in Fines to US Authorities
Back in September, the Californian DFPI and other U.S. regulators ordered Nexo to desist from offering Earn Interest Products (EIP), which in the company’s case took the form of crypto asset lending accounts.
At the time the charges were filed, Nexo had already ceased offering the accounts to U.S. investors.
However, U.S. investors could still use the feature by opting for automatic renewal on already existing accounts.
Cooperation With Authorities
Four months later, both the SEC and The North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA) announced that their legal actions against the lender had concluded. As a result of the investigation, Nexo voluntarily agreed to pay $45 million in fines.
The crypto platform refused to confirm or deny the regulators’ findings – nevertheless, a spokesman for the SEC stated that the penalties imposed on the firm took into account Nexo’s cooperation and willingness to engage with regulators without constraint.
Furthermore, SEC Chairman Gary Gensler stated that Nexo was not charged for operating an EIP but for failing to register it properly.
“We charged Nexo with failing to register its retail crypto lending product before offering it to the public, bypassing essential disclosure requirements designed to protect investors. Compliance with our time-tested public policies isn’t a choice. Where crypto companies do not comply, we will continue to follow the facts and the law to hold them accountable. I...

The cryptocurrency lender, Nexo, has agreed to pay $45 million to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and several state regulators after charges were levied against the firm for failing to register the company's Earn Interest Product (EIP). Nexo detailed that the settlements are on a 'no admit, no deny' basis and that the arrangement 'closes all multi-year-long inquiries into Nexo.'Nexo Pays $22.5 Million to SEC, $22.5 Million to Several State Regulators for EIP Offering
On Jan. 19, 2023, Nexo announced that it has agreed to settle with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA) and several state regulators, including the Office of the New York Attorney General, over an unregistered offering.
According to the SEC, around June 2020, Nexo started to offer the company's Earn Interest Product (EIP), an interest-earning product that allows investors to earn interest on deposited crypto assets. The U.S. regulator said, 'the EIP is a security and that the offer and sale of the EIP did not qualify for an exemption from SEC registration.'
Nexo's co-founder, Kosta Kantchev, responded to the settlement in a statement sent to Bitcoin.com News. “We are confident that a clearer regulatory landscape will emerge soon, and companies like Nexo will be able to offer value-creating products in the United States in a compliant manner, and the U.S. will further solidify its position as the world’s en...
|Nexo Turmoil Causing Tension in Bulgarian Parliament
The scandal around the cryptocurrency lending platform Nexo has triggered a massive verbal fight between the leading political parties in Bulgaria. GERB (the party that ruled between 2009 and 2021) alleged Democratic Bulgaria and We Continue the Change of having close ties with the distressed entity and even receiving significant donations from it.
On the contrary, numerous MPs claimed that members of GERB have intentionally launched such attacks against their rivals to prevent them from forming an acting government.
Nexo Creates Huge Drama in Bulgaria
The platform that allows users to earn interest on crypto deposits has had a rough start to the year after the Bulgarian authorities raided its local offices. The operation was part of a probe into suspected tax crimes and money laundering.
The investigation quickly turned into one of the main topics in the Eastern European country, while the leading political parties used it as an opportunity to hurt each other's reputation.
Boiko Borisov (PM of the nation between 2009 and 2021) and other members of his GERB party said five employees of Nexo donated 20,000 BGN each to Democratic Bulgaria (a major rival of the former ruling organization) in October 2021. It was disclosed that two more workers of the crypto platform followed suit, giving away the same amount days later.
GERB went even further, vowing to check whether Nexo has financed the political campaign of 'We Continue the Change' (the party that won the elections ...

As of Jan. 13, 2023, Nexo's attestation indicates that the company now holds 124,939 bitcoin, with $157.21 million worth of bitcoin having been withdrawn during the past 24 hours.Customers Withdraw $157 Million Worth of Bitcoin From Nexo's Platform in 24 Hours
Last year, a number of exchanges experienced withdrawal stress tests, and after Nexo's office raid on Thursday, the crypto lender is dealing with similar issues. Reports on Jan. 12, 2023, disclosed that Nexo is under investigation by Bulgaria's attorney general and roughly 300 investigators from various agencies. The company is accused of violating tax requirements, participating in money laundering, and bypassing financial sanctions associated with the Russian Federation.
Nexo has denied any wrongdoing and immediately issued a statement on Twitter to the community that the company adheres to 'very stringent anti-money laundering and know-your-customer policies.'

|Bitcoin Enters 2023 Flat at $16.5K, Nexo Skyrockets 15% (Weekend Watch)
The end of 2022 brought almost zero volatility for bitcoin, which remained flat at around $16,500.
Most altcoins also failed to produce any significant volatility, aside from the two recent high-flyers - OKB and Toncoin.
Bitcoin Stalls at $16.5K
In yesterday's Market Watch, CryptoPotato summarized bitcoin's overall price movements in 2022, which started on a high note at almost $50,000 but ended 65% lower following a violent year that saw multiple collapses.
While zooming in to review BTC's performance for the past few weeks, one can easily notice a lack of any substantial price movements. The cryptocurrency has been stuck in a range between $16,000 and $17,000 since the failed attempt to overcome $18,000 on December 14.
2022's final hours didn't deliver any price fluctuations either, and bitcoin remained stuck at around $16,500. The start of the new year is yet to make its mark, although there're some worrying predictions from analysts claiming that the asset could drop even further based on the whales' behavior.
Currently, though, bitcoin's market capitalization has stayed under $320 billion, while its dominance over the altcoins sits calmly at 40.1% on CoinMarketCap.

|Nexo is Leaving the United States Due to Regulatory Difficulties
Burdened by regulatory pressures, crypto lending firm Nexo has given up on continuing to operate within the United States.
The company announced on Monday that it would begin phasing out its products and services from the country over the coming months.
According to Nexo, the firm has engaged in “good-faith dialogue” with the US state and federal regulators for the past 18 months. Despite this, Nexo no longer believes that such bodies can be negotiated with, citing their “inconsistent and changing positions” on legal matters.
“The US refuses to provide a path forward for enabling blockchain businesses and we cannot give our customers confidence that regulators are focused on their best interests,” stated the firm.
Nexo has been hounded by both state and federal regulators for its crypto lending service – especially its “earn” product, which lets depositors earn a consistent annual return on their crypto savings. California’s regulators have already ordered the firm to stop providing the product, deeming such offerings to be unregistered securities.
Nexo offboarded its clients from New York and Vermont over the past two years due to similar pressures. Starting on Tuesday, December 6, its Earn product will be stripped from another eight states – including Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Wisconsin, California, and Washington.
Other Nexo products will re...
|Crypto Lender Nexo Acquires Stake in US Chartered Bank
Leading cryptocurrency lender Nexo has acquired a stake in Hulett Bancorp (DBA Mode Eleven) and its subsidiary federally chartered bank Summit National Bank, regulated under the US Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.
The deal will allow the crypto lender, which has around $4 billion in assets under management, to further scale its financial product offerings across the US crypto market and strengthen its foothold in the region.
Nexo to Offer Crypto Services to US Customers
Under the acquisition agreement, Nexo will offer retail and institutional customers in the US a broad range of services, including opening bank accounts, asset-backed loans, and card programs. The company will also provide users with escrow and custodial solutions through Summit National Bank infrastructure.
In return, the US chartered bank will leverage Nexo's experience and position as one of the leading lenders in the crypto industry to bridge the gap between traditional finance and Web 3. The bank will benefit from Nexo's complete suite of products and services to satisfy customers' needs as it migrates to a modern financial institution.
The new collaboration aligns with the bank's mission to reinvent itself and its offerings to join the emerging economy as a regulated financial institution in the United States.
Summit National Bank was established in 1984 with four branches in Montana and Idaho.

|California Regulators Order Nexo to Stop Crypto Interest Accounts
Cryptocurrency lender Nexo has come under fire from California regulators and seven other US state securities watchdogs for its unregistered crypto interest account program, which the authorities classified as securities.
Notably, some crypto lenders offering similar programs in the United States faced similar actions in the past from US regulators.
California Slams Desist and Refrain Order Against Nexo
In a statement published on Monday (September 26, 2022), California's Department of Financial Protection and Innovation (DFPI) announced that Nexo's Earn Interest Product account, with annual interest rates as high as 36%, was offered to California residents without being registered as securities.
According to a desist and refrain order filing, the DFPI claimed that while Nexo claimed to have stopped serving the product to US investors since February 19, 2022, clients were still able to use the interest-bearing cryptocurrency account using the lender's automatic renewal feature.
Furthermore, the California regulator alleged that more than 18,000 residents in the state were actively using the Earn Interest Product as of July 31, 2022. The DFPI earlier said the agency is conducting an active investigation into companies offering crypto interest accounts.
Commenting on the latest development, Clothilde Hewlett, DFPI Commissioner, said:
“The DFPI has undertaken aggressive enforcement efforts against unregistered interest-bearing cryptocurrency accounts. These crypto interes...

The enforcement actions from multiple state securities regulators detail that Nexo's Earn Interest Product (EIP) may be in violation of securities laws.Nexo Targeted by Several Securities Regulators Over the Crypto Lender's Earn Interest Product
Following the issues that took place last year against Celsius' and Blockfi's interest-bearing accounts, the crypto lender Nexo has been targeted by several state securities regulators concerning the company's Earn Interest Product (EIP). The state of California insists that since June 2020, Nexo has 'offered and sold unqualified securities, in the form of Earn Interest Product accounts, to the United States public at large and to California residents.'
The state of New York and attorney general Letitia James filed a lawsuit against Nexo. Similarly, the state of New York and James say that Nexo started offering the EIPs around June 2020, up until the present day. James claims Nexo violates New York's Martin Act, and acted as 'unregistered securities brokers or dealers.' Washington is saying the same and Washington's securities division mentioned several states are in on the law enforcement actions together.
Kentucky, Vermont, South Carolina, and Maryland have all filed similar actions against Nexo, and many of the complaints are ordering Nexo to cease and desist current operations tied to t...
|Ethereum Will Not Flip Bitcoin After the Merge: Nexo Co-Founder
According to Antoni Trenchev - Co-Founder of the cryptocurrency lending platform Nexo - Ethereum's Merge is 'the most significant thing' that has happened in the protocol's history. However, he does not believe it will help Ether surpass Bitcoin as the most dominant digital asset.
The executive also expects ETH's price to surge when people realize the benefits of the transition to Proof-of-Stake (PoS), but not immediately after it occurs.
Bitcoin Will Stay at the Top
Ethereum's shift from PoW to PoS, which happened earlier today (September 15), has caused numerous debates over the past several months. Experts weighed in on how it will benefit the blockchain project and the whole industry, but some warned that it could become a 'buy the rumor, sell the news' event.
In a recent interview for Bloomberg, Nexo's Co-Founder and Managing Partner - Antoni Trenchev - outlined the greener focus that Ethereum will have from now on, and that Ether will move from 'essentially an inflationary type of asset' to a deflationary one.
Nonetheless, he thinks that even after 'The Merge,' Ether does not have a chance to steal Bitcoin's supremacy and become the largest cryptocurrency:
'Anyone who is writing off Bitcoin, I think that's too soon.'
Trenchev said he is 'incredibly bullish' on those assets and holds them both in his portfolio for the long run. He admitted increasing his ETH exposure a few months ago, anticipating that the coin's price will surge after the shift to PoS.

|Nexo Allocates Another $50 Million To Its Token Buyback Initiative
Cryptocurrency exchange Nexo announced this Aug. 30 the allocation of another $50 million to execute discretionary and periodic buybacks of its NEXO token on the open market.
According to the company's statement, this would be the second time the exchange has invested money in repurchasing its tokens this year. The first time was in May when they announced the repurchase of $100 million in NEXO tokens.
Nexo Wants to Demonstrate its Liquidity
Antoni Trenchev, co-founder and managing partner of Nexo, said the allocation of this $50 million demonstrates the 'solid liquidity position' the company maintains in times when many cryptocurrency exchanges have had to shut down operations.
'The allocation of an additional $50 million to our buyback plan is a result of our solid liquidity position and Nexo's ability and readiness to spur on its own products, token, and community, alongside its outward-facing initiatives of injecting liquidity into the industry,'
Trenchev added that despite 'challenging market conditions,' the company and the NEXO token have consistently moved in tandem with BTC and ETH, evidencing stability and demand for the asset. Right now, Nexo has a total market capitalization of more than $581 million, according to CoinMarketCap data.

|Nexo Might Acquire Distressed Crypto Lender Vauld
The leading cryptocurrency lender - Nexo - is looking to purchase the Singaporean digital asset exchange - Vauld.
According to a document shared with CryptoPotato, Nexo and Vauld signed a 60-day exclusive exploratory period focused on the latter's possible acquisition. If successful, the agreement will see Nexo owning up to 100% of the platform.
Vauld has been significantly affected by the ongoing bear market. Last month, it said it will dismiss 30% of its total workforce, while earlier this week, it suspended transactions and withdrawals on its platform.
Joining forces with Nexo might ease the exchange's issues and ensure the protection of its customer base. Speaking on the matter was Darshan Bathija - Vauld's Co-Founder and CEO:
'Operating under the Nexo umbrella puts us instantly in a position of strength to continue the execution of our fiduciary obligations to our customers and at the same time to execute upon both companies' ambitious roadmaps, regardless of the market conditions.'
For her part, Tatiana Metodieva - Nexo's Head of Corporate Finance & Investments - argued that crypto's big players will navigate their way out of the turbulent times since they possess 'competitive strength, discipline, and uncompromising responsibility to customers.'
She also said that Nexo sympathizes with all affected firms due to the current market downturn and is ready to have a dialogue with them to optimize their operations and guide them through the distress.

Crypto lender Nexo released a blog post to clarify what it considers the recent comments made by a pseudonymous Twitter user 'Otteroooo' to be 'a slate of ludicrous allegations.'
'Untrue and Defamatory'
Nexo said it will use any legally available means against the 'defamatory' statements and false allegations' shared by certain Twitter accounts. It accused the originator of the allegation of conducting a smear campaign against Nexo and profiting from short positions in a distressed market.
Threatening legal consequences, the platform said, 'everyone engaging in detrimental activity to Nexo will be held accountable.'
The crypto lender refuted claims of connection to the alleged Bulgarian charity. Along with the response, Nexo also issued a public cease and desist notice on its website.
The allegations of fraud against Nexo came at a time when the crypto lending sector took a significant hit during the market turndown. Starting from the embattled Celsius to Babel Finance, several crypto lending platforms are currently facing liquidity challenges.

The current bear market has left many crypto-related businesses reeling. Between the Luna fiasco and assets dropping close to levels not seen in 2 years, crypto mainstays are struggling to stay afloat – either by freezing hiring, cutting staff loose altogether, or freezing exchanges and withdrawals 'to protect consumers.'
However, not all companies are feeling the effects of the crypto winter. The team at Binance, for instance, has upped its hiring spree.
And on the DeFi side of things, Nexo is looking to corner the market by refinancing other DeFi platforms currently navigating turbulent waters.
Better Planning, Better Business
Recently, Nexo had sent a letter of intent to Celsius, stating the willingness to purchase the latter's qualifying assets to bail the platform out. Now, Nexo has released a statement on its blog, outlining the reasons why it managed to weather the storm better than some competitors – as well as the intent to capitalize on their mistakes.

NEXO was up by nearly 50% on Friday, as markets reacted to the news that Binance was listing the token on its platform. Today's surge sent NEXO to a multi-week high, while TRON also moved higher, hitting a one week peak.
Two weeks after announcing a partnership with Mastercard to launch the world's first 'crypto-backed' payment card, NEXO today achieved another milestone.
Binance confirmed that it will be adding the token to its platform, and this news was well received by markets.
NEXO/USD rose by nearly 50% during today's session, hitting an intraday high of $3.66 in the process.
Friday's surge comes less than 24-hours after prices were trading at $2.14, and as of writing are tracking at a record high.
This recent peak comes following a three day rally which began at support of $2.10, with two long-term resistance levels broken as a result of the bullish ascent.
The price of NEXO, which launched in December last year is now overbought, with the RSI tracking at 71.94, which is a record. Many will anticipate a reversal in upcoming sessions as a result.
TRON was also higher during today's session, rising to a one week high, following three consecutive days of rallies.
As of writing this, TRX/USD hit a peak of $0.06967 on Friday, which is its highest level since April 22.
This one week high sees TRX break past its long-term resistance level of $0.06800, with some now targeting a higher ceiling of $0.07600.

Bitcoin tried its hand at $40,000 yesterday but was quickly stopped in its tracks and now sits below it. ApeCoin went on to register yet another all-time high amid the growing anticipation for Otherside, while Nexo soared by double digits following a listing on the world’s largest crypto exchange.
Bitcoin Stopped at $40K
The enhanced volatility in the crypto market continued in the past 24 hours. CryptoPotato reported yesterday the recent high fluctuations that started on April 25 when bitcoin challenged $41,000 but was violently rejected.
As a result, the asset fell by over $3,000 in hours and plummeted below $38,000 for the first time since March 15. It reacted somewhat positively to this price decline and bounced off to just under $40,000.
It went even further during yesterday’s trading day and spiked above that coveted level. However, that was a short-lived adventure as it fell below it almost immediately. As of now, BTC stands at $39,500, and its market cap is still around $750 billion.

By collaborating with the payment providers, Nexo granted its users access to over 92 million merchant sites worldwide.
Enter Nexo Card
According to a document seen by CryptoPotato, the new feature (dubbed Nexo Card) is linked to a Nexo-provided, crypto-backed credit line that stays at 0% APR. It allows clients to employ their holdings as collateral instead of selling them.
“The credit line is dynamic and can use multiple assets as collateral, including but not limited to Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Tether,” the document reads.
Nexo Card requires no minimum repayments. There are also no foreign transaction (FX) fees for up to $20,000 per month.
The card provides instant crypto cashback, paid out in Bitcoin or Nexo’s native token. As such, customers can earn up to 2% back in free digital assets with each purchase.
Nexo Card is available both in virtual and physical form as it comes with direct Apple Pay and Google Pay integrations. Ordering additional virtual cards is for free.
