The eToro cryptocurrency wallet is adding support for 120 ERC-20 standard tokens.
First to be included in the wallet from Tuesday are Maker (MKR), Basic Attention Token (BAT), OmiseGO (OMG), with the others to follow in the "near future," according to a press release emailed to CoinDesk. ERC-20 is a technical standard that sets rules for tokens launched on ethereum or related blockchains.
Doron Rosenblum, managing director of eToroX, said:
Within the US, the wallet is managed by eToro US LLC. eToroX also launched a cryptocurrency exchange and eight eToro-branded stablecoins back in April.
eToro CEO and co-founder, Yoni Assia, said at the time:
