Welcome to the seventh Set Community Update! In these updates, we’ll give an overview of everything that happened in the Set universe over the last month including new product releases, community and media engagements, growth metrics, partnerships, where we’ve been and more. Let’s dive in!


News and Product Releases

We had our most exciting launch since Trend Trading in January — Set Social Trading which launched with 13 unique traders offering 18 different strategies. We’ve also been posting spotlight interviews with each of our traders that you can view here. You can also read our Set Social Trading getting started guide here.

We formed a partnership with DEXTF in January that focuses on building the next-gen asset management infrastructure which tweaks some of the traditional relationships between the actors in the asset management industry, as we know them today, and the role of custody.

We launched the yield version of our popular ETH26EMACO Set on Tokens that uses cUSDC instead of USDC so that it’s earning interest via Compound. Check it out here.

We migrated away from our Telegram chat last month and we now have a vibrant and community community participating in discussions in our new Discord channel. Join here.

You can now download the Frontier mobile wallet app (beta) and use your Ethereum address or ENS to track your Social Trading Sets.

You can use DefiSnap’s desktop dashboard to keep track of your TokenSets positions (as well as various other DeFi products and services).
