UK-based AQRU plc, an incubator specialising in decentralised finance (DeFi), announces that the cryptocurrency trading platform AQRU.io, developed by its fully owned subsidiary Accru Finance Ltd., has surpassed $50 million in assets under management and 20,000 user sign-ups on AQRU.io, its proprietary yield-generating platform. The milestone was achieved five months since the launch of the platform and 39 days after it reached $20 million in assets under the management.
Philip Blows, CEO of AQRU, said: “With more than $50 million in assets under management and 20,000 signups in only five months, AQRU.io has demonstrated itself an attractive solution that enables investors to take advantage of the opportunities that DeFi has to offer. As decentralised finance grows, we expect AQRU.io will remain a favoured choice for retail investors, as well as an appealing and sought-after solution for institutional investors in Europe and other international markets too.”
Easy access to decentralised markets
Launched by Phil Blows, Digby Try and Louis Quaintance in 2021, AQRU.io was designed to provide investors with a secure and easy way to access and participate in the decentralised markets. It lets users easily convert their fiat currency, including EUR and GBP into cryptocurrency and participate in staking, which is the locking of funds to receive crypto rewards, and yield farming, where crypto assets are locked to earn interest of up to 12%. Also, it lets users withdraw their assets at any time in the form of cryptocurrency or fiat.
The platform has received significant demand from both retail and institutional investors as it has proven to be a simple and easy-to-use solution to access the decentralised markets. AQRU.io requires users to connect their digital wallets to the platform and select from the different automatic investment strategies available on it. Once this has been set up, users can keep track of their investments’ performance in real-time through the online platform or the mobile app.
Security has been a priority for Accru Finance when developing AQRU.io. This is why the platform has been secured by Fireblocks, an industry leader in digital asset security that has secured the transfer of over $400 billion in digital assets, using bank-grade security software to reassure investors that their money is safe in the AQRU.io platform.
How does AQRU.io work?
AQRU.io aims to deliver the very best crypto savings account, which lets normal people to invest and gain interest using cryptocurrency like Bitcoin rather than a normal currency like US dollars. The interest rates are much better and lets users earn up to 12% a year. AQRU’s mission is to be completely transparent with its users.
