Four new tokens join the Wirex family
Today’s a good day. Why? Because four new cryptocurrencies have just gone live in the Wirex app!
And we’ve certainly got some fan favourites in this batch. If you’re not already familiar with them, it’s time to get acquainted with the following tokens:
Axie (AXS), Polygon (MATIC), Chiliz (CHZ) and Polkadot (DOT).
Not only can you buy and exchange these popular tokens in the app at unbeatable OTC rates, you can also earn a little extra for adding them to your portfolio.
Yes, if you buy €50 (EEA) or US$50 (APAC) worth of any of our four new cryptocurrencies, you’ll be rewarded with €5/US$5 in WXT!
So, what have we got?
If you’re a fan of gaming, NFTs or mythical creatures, you’re going to like this one.
Axie Infinity Shards (AXS) is an ERC-20 token that powers Axie Infinity, a unique NFT-based game that lets players build a digital universe for their pets.
These pets are known as Axies - cute, colourful monster NFTs which can be bred and sold to other players in exchange for real money.
Count us in!
Polygon (MATIC) is the token that powers the Polygon Network, a protocol for building and connecting Ethereum-compatible networks. MATIC is used to pay transaction fees on the network, as well as participate in the proof-of-stake consensus.
Chiliz (CHZ) powers the Chiliz ecosystem: fan engagement platform, Socios.com, and tokenised sport and entertainment exchange, Chiliz Exchange.
With CHZ, you can buy collectible digital assets known as Fan Tokens on Socios.com, which are used to influence sports teams by popular vote.
The DOT token is native to - and provides governance for - the Polkadot network. The network is designed to enable cross-blockchain transfers of any data or asset, creating an interconnected ‘internet of blockchains’.
