Initially, the service will offer a 20% APY fixed-term and support ICX, bitcoin (EXANTE: Bitcoin), ethereum (ETH), and tether (USDT), however, the developers plan to add new assets in the future based on demand. It is expected that the service will be launched in December 2020.
Min Kim, ICON Founder, says the main goal of ICONFi is to create "a more inclusive and diverse ICON community by bringing clear benefits to crypto beginners."
"We believe ICONFi can be the gateway to other DeFi products like decentralized wallets, as well as an entry point for the ICON ecosystem and blockchain technology as a whole," Kim added.
In September 2020, the community arm of the ICON Network, the ICON Foundation, announced the roadmap for its next-generation blockchain software called ICON 2.0.
The new version of the network will not require a bridge or token swap, but will be seamless to current users, while providing superior functionality.
