Cryptocurrencies and digital assets are one of the fastest-growing financial markets in the world. That’s highlighted by the fact that in a recent report, 41% of the global investors put their money into crypto in the last year, and trading volumes in assets such as NFTs have risen to above $10 billion (1000cr) as increasing numbers of people put their faith and money in the technology.
What is even more interesting is that it’s not one industry or part of the world that is taking advantage of the boom in the modern blockchain-based world either, as 81 of the world’s top 100 companies are now using the technology to advance their business.
With so many different companies using the platform, the tech is maturing, bringing more crypto-related apps for everyday users. With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of five great apps for you to use if you’re looking to get into the world of digital assets.
If your aim when heading into the world of digital finance is to trade, then Binance is the app for you. This app is so popular that it has billions worth of transactions passing through it every day. Funding options and fees differ based on where in the world you’re logging in, so it’s worth checking that out because it can mean as much as 4% per transaction. The dashboard allows you to view market trends, portfolios, and trade history, which means you have full control. The app is free and is available on iOS and Android.
2. NFT LaunchPad
Although this app is very new, as it was established just a couple of months ago, it’s quickly headed to the top of the list of apps for those wanting to delve into NFTs. There is a vast selection of digital assets to invest in, from art, animations, video and even collectables. It’s slick and streamlined and like WhatsApp, has multi-device support, which means you can log in and browse the options on both a smartphone and your laptop or desktop. The app also is great for the creatives who develop the NFTs and want somewhere to list them, as it’s easy to connect a crypto wallet and you can just literally click ‘create’.
This app is one for the sports fanatic, which lists itself as the all in one app for influence, rewards and more. The app allows fans to participate in votes and polls revolving around its 130 partner organizations. The app’s digital assets give the purchaser voting rights, open the doors to matchday experiences, and more – these are called fan tokens. These tokens are bought with $CHZ tokens which is the blockchain that powers the platform, and the Socios app allows you to go through the purchasing process seamlessly in one place. It’s a great platform for superfans to participate in the clubs they love and is available on iOS and Android.
This app has grown in popularity recently due to the dearth of advertising seen on TV and the internet, but it’s not just hype. The app already has 10 million users, and that’s due to its support for NFTs from sport, music, gaming and more, and the app also has an extensive crypto exchange. The NFT marketplace feature doesn’t charge any transaction fees when users purchase their items, which has been a huge draw. Users can also use crypto AND credit or debit cards to facilitate their purchase—making it the most accessible app for those first-time investors.
If you’re not just starting out on your journey of digital discovery and are a seasoned follower of all things crypto-related, then this is the app for you. Gemini is aimed at the user who is fully versed in investing in crypto, and that is obvious from the moment it’s opened for the first time. The security on the app is top-notch and amongst the best of any on the market, and also, there’s the bonus of insurance options available to double up that level of safety. Also as trading commissions are fixed at 1.49%, there are no hidden fees, so you always know where you stand.
