What is Zapper?

September 22, 2021

Zapper is an asset management platform for decentralized finance (DeFi). Our mission is to make DeFi accessible and easy to use. We work towards this mission by:

  • providing a dashboard from which users can track and exchange more than 3000 digital assets;
  • helping builders and developers from across the DeFi ecosystem reach as many users as possible by integrating their protocols with our dashboard;
  • creating and sharing educational resources on Zapper Learn to help demystify the complexities of cryptocurrencies and DeFi for newcomers.

Navigating the Zapper Dashboard

Our main product is the Zapper Dashboard. From the dashboard, users can easily view all their digital investments and adjust their portfolio. Our dashboard makes it simple for users to alter their investing strategies by exchanging assets, providing liquidity in a variety of pools, staking tokens, depositing assets to earn passive income, and studying wallets of peers, colleagues, and public figures to stay on top of the latest trends in DeFi.



By logging in to view the dashboard frequently, users can get a sense of the rhythm of decentralized finance, get comfortable with the ups and downs of the digital asset market, and develop an instinct for what makes a good investment.

What is the DeFi Ecosystem?

The DeFi Ecosystem is a vast network of platforms, tools, and protocols built on top of many different blockchain networks that run on computer nodes across the globe. This ecosystem is intricate, dynamic, and is changing everyday (sometimes by the hour). 



This fast-growing network is possible because a central tenant of the technology that underpins cryptocurrencies and blockchains is that it must be open source. This means that it is an expectation in the crypto space that all protocols must ensure that their code, smart contracts, and Application Programming Interface (API) are freely available for anyone to adapt and modify. You can view Zapper’s open source documents here.

Zapper is an important product in the DeFi Ecosystem. Our dashboard is a one-stop-shop for users who want to track their DeFi portfolios, and to make sure it stays this way, our team needs to stay on top of the developments in this rapidly evolving ecosystem and integrate new protocols with our dashboard quickly and efficiently.
