What is wETH?

wETH is a type of cryptocurrency developed for the Ethereum blockchain.

"Wrapped ETH" means that each wETH token gets backed by one ETH token.

wETH conforms to the ERC-20 standard while ETH does not; this is because ether was developed and released before the advent of the standards that tokens need to conform toβ€” therefore, the value of each wETH coin will never go below the value of one ETH coin.

ETH is traded or 'wrapped' directly for wETH, and to receive plain ETH; you'll need to trade it back or 'unwrap' the wrapped ETH. ()

Technically, you are not 'wrapping' anything; instead, you are trading ETH for wETH at a 1:1 ratio. This parity gets enforced by a smart contract and is therefore immutable. Click here to learn more about wETH.

What types of NFTs get displayed?

Currently, we support ERC-721, aka unique NFTs or 1/1's. (Ethereum Mainnet)

In the future, we'll offer additional standards and networks as we scale our services.
