Why It Matters: SafeMoon, a self-described decentralized finance or DeFi token, said earlier this month that its SafeMoonWallet is live on Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) iOS platform. The SafeMoon Wallet now comes with an integrated Binance Coin buy button.
The SafeMoon Protocol would expand to include an NFT marketplace and coin launchpad that will enable users to create their own cryptocurrencies via the platform, according to the project behind the token.
The coin took to Twitter on Sunday to mention the highlights from a meeting between cryptocurrency’s holders and the team’s CEO John Karony earlier this month.
