“Ape Now, Pay Later”
Decentralized finance (DeFi) lending platform Teller Finance has launched a new feature that will grant its users access to a “buy now, pay later” (BNPL) feature to purchase NFTs.
The new feature, humorously titled “Ape Now, Pay Later,” is built on the Polygon Network and allows users to own NFTs outright while paying off the total price tag over time, much like other BNPL services such as AfterPay.
