We’ve delisted MCO (MCO) and YFV (YFValue) tokens from POKKET last week, as a result of recent developments regarding both tokens. MCO token is being phased out in favor of CRO tokens at Crypto.com, and YFV (YFValue) token is migrating to VALUE on the Value DeFi Protocol. You can read more about it here.

If you still have YFV tokens in your wallet with POKKET, we’ll get them converted to VALUE tokens, and you can earn interest on them once we add VALUE token later this week.

While you’re at it, check out our interest rates including our top 10 earning tokens below.
