Welcome to 2019, Wirex users! We’ve not let January blues hold us back – we’ve been working around the clock to make some big changes. All will be revealed soon.
In the meantime, it’s been a month of new releases with two new tokens available for Wirex users in the EEA. They’re both ready for you to buy, exchange and spend using your Wirex app and Wirex Visa card.
Riding the wave into 2019
In early January, we launched the Waves token. Its revolutionary blockchain architecture provides a lightweight, fast and low-cost open source platform, making it an interesting investment opportunity for anyone looking to widen their crypto horizons. Users can now buy, store, convert and spend WAVES with their Wirex Visa cards, securing Wirex’s position as one of the most diverse and practical platforms on the market.
The year of the pig
After announcing our partnership with Pigzbe back in November, we’re delighted to see the official launch of their native token Wollo (WLO) on the Wirex platform. Pigzbe is a crypto-friendly startup that aims to provide parents with a new way of teaching money management. Their Piggy-Wallet™, which is funded by Wollo, equips children aged 6+ with the tools to start navigating digital finance by giving them real-life experience in earning, saving and spending their own money. Like Waves, Pigzbe offers something completely different to users, making it another exciting addition to the Wirex portfolio.
At the end of January, we announced a Wirex first: our brand new and exclusive ambassador programme! We’re in the process of recruiting a group of Community Champions, to reward those loyal Wirex users who have been busy spreading the Wirex word far and wide. Among the perks of being a Community Champion are exclusive access to Wirex events and the chance to test brand new products before release.
