We’re close to capping the first half of the year, but we assure you that Pundi X has barely scratched the surface in terms of what we can offer in 2019. A lot of works are in progress which we will announce when ready. Nonetheless, we have achieved some very promising milestones for the past few weeks, further highlighting our commitment to bringing easy payments and unparalleled crypto experience to our clients. More product enhancements, merchant activation, greater engagements, and higher security standards — these are what we have delivered last month.
Product DevelopmentXPOS certified by FCC and KC
We are proud to announce that XPOS received certifications from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Korea Certification (KC), on top of the certification it has already received from CE and TRA. These certifications will certainly help build XPOS a trustworthy blockchain device as these markings indicate that from a safety and environmental protection perspective the XPOS can confidently be used by their customers.
Pundi X Open Platform is available for token listing from May 11
At the beginning of the month (1st May) we’ve launched Pundi X Open Platform that allows blockchain developers or businesses to sign up for a developer account to list their ERC20 tokens throughout XPOS, XWallet and XPASS. Not only that, now the developers have the option to create customized XPASS cards. To learn more about how to list on the Open Platform, you can read the instruction here.
NPXS buy back to incentivize quality blockchain developers to list on the Pundi X Open Platform
After announcing Pundi X Open Platform, the team has allocated the tokens from the Partnership Reserve Fund (PRF) to encourage good blockchain projects to list on Pundi X payment platform by subsidizing their initial liquidity pools. The source of PRF is the NPXS that we buy back from the open markets. On May 20, we executed NPXS buybacks equivalent to 500 ETH at around $0.00072 dollars on May 20, 2019.
This month we continue improving XWallet by adding more features and support. Here is a list of improvements we made in May:
We’ve also working hard to make XWallet app on more platform. It is now available on Samsung Galaxy Store.
You can use XWallet app for not only topping up and paying cryptos instantly with XPOS merchants across 30 countries but also sending tokens to any XWallet user in the world without fee when the receiver uses the ‘Collection’ feature. Most of XWallet users are also using staking feature from both XWallet and their own ERC20 private wallets to get FX tokens.
As of today, XWallet has more than 200,000 registered users and growing.
