DeFi tracking solution Zerion has recently upgraded its platform, offering users new tools to manage their crypto portfolios rather than simple monitoring services.
From Tracking to Managing, Zerion Turns a Corner
Zerion is now a non-custodial DeFi portfolio manager that helps users keep track of their portfolio using a simple interface.
It takes into account liquidity provider (LP) tokens and lending positions on services that it supports. Currently, Zerion users can execute Uniswap, 1Inch, Sushi, 0x, Balancer, and Compound smart contracts from the app’s interface.

We observed a price difference of 1.77% in the gas fees necessary to run the transaction. The “minimum received” values showcased a difference of 0.86%.
Competitors such as InstaDapp and Zapper offer similar products, but Zerion is closing in fast with new tools and capabilities.
Even though there is room for improvement in the transaction fee department, Zerion is placing a lot of pressure on competitors to…
