Crypto has lost its way
Crypto today is exciting, but often for the wrong reasons.
What began as a way to democratize the world of finance so everyday folks could control their own assets has, unfortunately, morphed into something else entirely.
Innovation at warp speed has resulted in a confusing, fragmented crypto environment. As a result, many users have run to centralized exchanges, giving up custody and control and putting their assets at risk.
Worse, none of today's players are addressing the inevitable transition to a more tokenized, on-chain future.
That is, until now.
A safe, easy digital asset super app
At Ethos, we believe anyone interested in crypto should have it all, without compromise. So we created a super app designed to open the magical world of decentralized finance (DeFi) to everyone, wrapped in a robust, future-ready platform.
As finance and other aspects of our lives become more digital, decentralized and personalized, our DeFi super app cuts through the noise, curating the best existing and emerging opportunities under one umbrella.
One super app for all things crypto and Finance 2.0.

Crypto adoption mirrors Internet growth
For an interesting perspective, this chart shows the technology adoption of the Internet from 1992 to 2006, then maps crypto's rise since 2016. By 2030, it projects a near match in the adoption curve.
Looking toward the future
Global economics are in a major transition from Finance 1.0 to Finance 2.0, with increasing, widespread acceptance of Blockchain technology by the largest traditional financial services companies. Growth numbers don't even account for the massive trend toward tokenization of real-world assets like real estate investment, mortgages, and unit interests in private equity funds on the chain. A solution like Ethos will be necessary for the safekeeping of those tokenized assets.
Ethos is more than a wallet. It's a super app.
There are a lot of exchanges, wallets and DeFi protocols. However, no other market player is currently providing our unique combination of security, trade and yield, and rewards, as well as the ability to easily navigate the best of w3 apps.
Putting power back into people's hands
At Ethos, we believe financial services will move to the Blockchain because it is less expensive, more efficient, transparent, and available around the clock. We see ourselves as enablers in a world that makes financial services more open, safe, fair and under individual control.
As we strategically build out our platform, we'll not only expand our core crypto offerings, we intend to become a leader in the distribution and trading of real-world tokenized assets that is coming to financial services.
The company has raised USD 1,269,000 to date from family offices, DeFi power users, and notable angel investors.
