A web3 wallet that automatically offers true cross-chain interest

We are making a web3 wallet that automatically gives the user access to true cross-chain interest on their crypto, without sacrificing exposure to their original assets. Our first integration enables users to invest their Ethereum in Polkadot staking on Lido at 18% APY. However, this is just the start. With our system, we can connect virtually any coin to virtually any interest source. That's how we plan to become the top web3 wallet.
