In line with a recent official ‘press-release‘ published, cryptocurrency exchange and social network for investors and traders named ‘eToro’ revealed that it has acquired smart contracts development company ‘Firmo’ for an undisclosed price.
Yoni Assia – The co-founder and chief executive officer of eToro is quoted within the announcement explaining that the acquisition can permit the platform to grow its offering of tokenized assets. He conjointly added:
“We believe that in time all investible [sic] assets are tokenized and that we will see the best transfer of wealth ever onto the’ blockchain‘ technology.”
According to the press-release, the team of the acquired company can act as an internal innovation team engaged on the tokenization of all eToro’s assets.

The system employs a domain-specific contract language named “FirmLang” which will be translated by the company’s software onto platforms like Ethereum [ETH], Eos [EOS] or Neo [NEO].
