Swap Celo’s well-known assets with Valora
With the ease of Valora’s swap feature, you can trade Celo’s most popular assets and start building your portfolio. Swaps now offer direct access to:
impactMarket (PACT) unlocks Web3 to provide financial services to people in developing economies. PACT, the dapp’s governance token, gives users a voice as to the direction of the protocol’s mission. And the token also works to incentivize donations as it’s used as a reward for contributions.
JumpTask (JMPT) is a crypto-based gig economy marketplace that matches businesses’ needs with people’s labor. With Jumptask, individuals complete microtasks for payment with the platform’s native token, JMPT. JMPT can be traded for other cryptos or staked for further rewards.
Moola (MOO) allows users to lend and borrow crypto assets with each other. You can receive rewards by lending your crypto assets to others or you can deposit your assets as collateral to take out a crypto loan. Moola’s native token – MOO – is both a governance and rewards token.
Plastiks (PLASTIK) - Plastiks is a blockchain-based platform using the native token PLASTIK to incentivize and enable plastic recovery globally. The PLASTIK token is the only token that is influenced by the action of plastic recovery and environmental impact.
EthicHub (ETHIX) - Ethix aims to act as a bridge between DeFi and the real economy represented by one billion+ small farmers in the world. The purchase of ETHIX invests in EthicHub’s Compensation Reserve, providing collateral for farmers' loans and reducing the perceived risk.
Now available: 45+ assets including top cryptocurrencies
Direct swaps simplify access to dozens of additional assets, including top cryptocurrencies like Ether, SOL, BND, AAVE, as wrapped assets. Valora users can also swap Moola stablecoins like mCUSD, mCEUR, or mCREAL, in addition your favorite Celo dapp tokens. New assets include:
Wrapped Ether (WETH) - The native cryptocurrency of Ethereum, called Ether (ETH), is tokenized as Wrapped Ether (WETH). This tokenization process makes ETH usable outside of the Ethereum ecosystem by enabling its use in decentralized applications (dapps).
Wrapped Solana (SOL) - Wrapped SOL is a safe and secure way to transact with the Solana network. Wrapped tokens are backed 1:1 with real Solana (SOL) tokens.
Binance (BNB) - BNB powers the Binance ecosystem and is the native asset of the Binance Chain.
AAVE - Aave is a decentralized cryptocurrency platform that allows users to borrow and lend crypto. Aave’s native crypto token (AAVE) can be traded or staked to earn interest.
Combined with Valora’s Supercharge rewards, you can get rewards on Moola stablecoins like mCUSD, mCEUR, or mCREAL. It is also possible to both earn Moola rewards and Supercharge rewards on the same asset. (In order to do this, your Moola stablecoin must be your highest-value balance (in USD, capped at 1000 USD) out of all your assets that are eligible for Supercharge.)
By swapping in Valora, you can enjoy the benefits of these assets, while paying a fraction of the cost in gas fees. Explore Valora’s expanded swaps feature and see for yourself!
