Linen is a mobile app and a crypto assets wallet which enables users to acquire and hold the emerging class of crypto assets (governance tokens, rewards tokens, social tokens, etc). The app also allows access to certain blockchainbased protocols, including liquidity pools and staking in decentralized finance (DeFi).
The app is the Company’s main product and is currently in private beta testing. Not all features of Linen App are currently available. Exchange pools, lending liquidity pools, and staking are developed by third-parties. These liquidity pools are powered by public blockchains such as Ethereum that allow for value transfer and can be programmed using smart contracts.

Linen's main competitors are cryptocurrency wallets that integrate Ethereum-based lending liquidity pools in their wallets and aggregators of DeFi protocols. Projects like Argent, Dharma, Outlet Finance, Zerion, BlockFi, ZenGo, Coinbase, Celsius, Nexo and others provide the ability to earn interest on stablecoins and cryptocurrencies. Linen is focusing on less tech-savvy users and on long-tale of crypto assets, but we can't know if this will be the right move.
