“Both EOS and Siacoin are listed on ABRA as artificial currencies. ABRA's currency uses crypto-collateralized crypto assets to securely and efficiently store and move value amongst different assets. The underlying synthetic currency also allows for ABRA's non0custodial wallet setup and provides a platform for future financial innovation.”
ABRA also announced that the addition of EOS and SC elevates the platform's available cryptocurrencies to 30. This is in addition to the 50 fiat currencies already available plus the unique BIT10 crypto index.
The addition of EOS and SC may not come as a surprise with the two altcoins grabbing attention since their initial development. Both are ranked 6th and 39th respectively AltDex's 100 Cryptocurrency Index (ALT100).
EOS, for example, managed to attract a lot of interest during its crowdfunding round lasting a whole year. The funding also broke records by raising over $4 billion, enough resources for the token to build itself up.
The EOS token is the native currency of EOSIO network, a blockchain built to operate as a decentralized operating system. Therefore, EOS is set to become a necessary tool for developers looking to develop customized decentralized applications.
The Siacoin is also a native token to a network with its formation back in 2015. The Sia network acts as a decentralized data storage infrastructure to connect people with available computing storage to people in need of that space. In sorts, it's a rental model trying to disrupt the existing model of data ownership and management.
A good reason for picking Siacoin lies in its maturity within the crypto space. The venture is older than most merging crypto projects, and this justifies its addition according to ABRA.
The addition of EOS and Siacoin set ABRA on more expansion within the cryptocurrency industry.
The recent announcement also comes barely two months since the platform made the Bitwise 10 Crypto Index (BIT10) launch. Under the BIT10 Index, ABRA could potentially gain exposure to over 80% of the crypto market through a single investment vehicle.
