Verse will add to Bitcoin.com’s network of crypto offerings by connecting the VERSE token’s usefulness and reward elements to each step of the cryptocurrency experience for common people.
Dennis Jarvis, the CEO of Bitcoin.com, stated:
Since 2015, Bitcoin.com has been a leader in introducing newcomers to crypto and guiding them along their crypto journey. So far we’ve built an incredible portfolio of products and services that count more than 4 million monthly active users and 30 million self-custody wallets created. Today, we’re proud to announce VERSE, a utility, and rewards token for everyone who participates in the ready-built Bitcoin.com Verse ecosystem.
VERSE could be minted for the first time in the summer as an ERC20 token and has been likened to BNB, FTT, CRO, the rewards and utility tokens for Binance, FTX offerings, and Crypto.com respectively. Some VERSE capabilities are similar to CeFi platforms such as Celsius and Nexo, and also typical decentralized trading systems like TraderJoe and Uniswap.
