🚀 Here’s what we’ve been up to in the past month.
Hey Zerion Community,
What a month! If ever there was a time to put your crypto to work, it’s now 👨🌾 COMP made its grand debut, renBTC is bringing Bitcoin to the Ethereum club, and we’re trying our best to keep calm despite sky-high network fees.
This post covers the latest Zerion updates for the month of June 2020.
COMP became the largest DeFi token by market cap after just one day of trading, and saw 1,000% gains in a single week 😳

DeFi taxes 101
Did you know that every time you buy crypto, exchange tokens, or earn fees from liquidity pools, you’re conducting a taxable event no matter how small the transaction? Because some jurisdictions require you to pay taxes on DeFi investments, we decided to partner with TokenTax to make life a little easier for those of you who need to cut your gains with your government. Zerion now lets you export your entire DeFi portfolio history as a CSV in an accounting format. You’ll also get a 10% discount when you use the TokenTax magic formula to optimize your tax liability.

DeFi is the new fintech
The economist Friedrich Hayek envisioned a future of privately issued, competing fiat currencies. Decentralized finance is taking us there, fast. Read Evgeny Yurtaev’s article on how disrupting supply chains and driving down distribution costs makes DeFi perfectly positioned to do what fintech fundamentally can’t.
