VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, December 8, 2021 – WonderFi Technologies Inc. (NEO: WNDR; OTC: WONDF, WKN: A3C166, FTX: WNDR) (the “Company” or “WonderFi”) today announced the launch date of the WonderFi App, a simple and free app that makes it easy for everyday users to access the high-growth area of decentralized finance (“DeFi”). The WonderFi app will be released on desktop on January 25, 2022, with mobile app releases to follow.
“The WonderFi app empowers anyone with a mobile phone to access DeFi, regardless of their background or experience in the sector” said WonderFi CEO Ben Samaroo. “We’re committed to providing fair and equal access to DeFi and lowering the barriers to entry for everyone.”
DeFi is a new technology which cuts out the middleman in traditional centralized finance, like banks and brokerages. With the total locked value (TVL) of DeFi markets having tripled over the last year to nearly $85 billion, interest in cryptocurrency has ramped up, with investors drawn to the ease of conducting their own transactions and the high earnings potential. But for most consumers, DeFi is overwhelming and difficult to access – an exclusive area of finance accessible to only experts and traders.
WonderFi is backed by strategic investors such as Alameda Research and FTX’s Sam Bankman-Fried, Shark Tank’s Kevin O’Leary, and Gen-Z influencer and investor Josh Richards.
“DeFi can be extremely complex—it’s not ‘consumerized’ in the way that traditional banking and investments are, and managing compliance and risk can be an issue, so it’s out of reach for most people. When my own daughter came to me looking to invest in DeFi, there was no feasible way for her to get started,” said O’Leary. “WonderFi has solved that problem with a platform that makes it easy for anyone to get started, to earn more and manage all of their assets in one trusted platform.”
