What is a DeFi Blue Tick?

Similar to how Twitter verifies accounts that are of public interest, assets that appear on at least two Token Lists will have their own blue tick on Zerion.

To protect users from scam tokens while maintaining a permissionless, scalable curation system, Zerion incorporates Uniswap’s Token Lists, a community-led initiative that creates a new standard for discerning legitimate ERC20 tokens from scams and duplicates.

Essentially, by delegating trust across multiple vetted lists, the DeFi Blue Tick is intended to make it easier for users to do their own due diligence. To be clear, this blue tick does not constitute investment advice and users should always do their own research.

How do I get a Blue Tick added?

Adding a DeFi protocol to Zerion is free of charge.

The process to get a blue tick added differs depending on the type of asset.

Please note that Zerion doesn't charge for any type of listing and be cautious of impersonators.

  • For Tokens/ERC-20s

A blue tick will be added automatically once a token appears in two or more token lists.

To ensure transparency and limit bias, Zerion doesn’t accept manual requests to add new tokens to the Zerion token list, so we urge you to get verified on at least 2 other token lists.

On a case-by-case basis, we may review special requests for existing whitelisted tokens that have a verified smart contract, sizable market capitalization, and verified information listed by more than 2 other token lists.

  • For Derivatives/Staked Assets

If a token satisfies the need of being a derivative of an existing verified protocol, it can be manually verified on Zerion’s token list. This includes complex derivatives such as staked assets and liquidity pools.
