Nexo has become the first platform to offer users ApeCoin utility: earning yield for holding APE, CoinJournal learned from a press release. This gives people access to more APE to use in the BAYC world.

Yuga Labs, the creators of ApeCoin and BAYC, want to create a currency for MetaRGP. This is an interoperable gaming metaverse where every participant can create assets and own land and resources.

They will need APE for this. With Nexo, anyone can accumulate APE wealth, earn daily, and become a part of the dynamically growing ecosystem.

Earn rates

  • Silver: Maximum rate – 8.75%. Standard rate – 7.5%.
  • Gold: Maximum rate – 10%. Standard rate – 8%.
  • Platinum: Maximum rate – 12%. Standard rate – 9%.

Use of APE
