Dear Fringe community,
It’s with great joy that we announce our integration of wrapped Ether ($wETH)! Thanks to this integration, users will be able to leverage their $wETH holdings, taking out stablecoin loans to maximize their assets while still keeping their $wETH.
$wETH is an ERC-20 token pegged to the price of Ether ($ETH). $wETH has a wider range of use cases than $ETH and is incredibly popular in the DeFi ecosystem. It’s also issued by a decentralized smart contract, so it does not have a centralized issuer like other wrapped tokens.
$ETH isn’t listed because it was the proto-token of the Ethereum Alt tokens, which means that it was built before the ERC-20 standard existed. This is why users need $wETH to be able to trade $ETH for other ERC-20 tokens.

Ethereum is a technology for building apps and organizations, holding assets, transacting and communicating without being controlled by a central authority. There is no need to hand over all your personal details to use Ethereum — you keep control of your own data and what is being shared. Ethereum has its own cryptocurrency, Ether, which is used to pay for certain activities on the Ethereum network.
