We hope you are staying safe and healthy. The pandemic hasn’t made the past months easy but we have continued to stick to the course, innovate and scale our blockchain solutions.
There are a number of opportunities that this “new normal” brings, not to mention new challenges, and we are adapting fast to operate smoothly in this post-pandemic era.
As you can see in the following activities, Pundi X has been at the forefront of delivering tech innovations as well as meeting compliance standards.
PayPal inclusion on XPOS®
PayPal is the first mobile payment gateway included on the XPOS®. Starting from mid Jul, XPOS® merchants are able to easily accept payment via PayPal. This feature has been added based on the result of a Twitter poll, where 70% of respondents voted for PayPal integration, over WeChat Pay, Alipay and GoPay.
XPOS® will support Wanchain’s cross-chain assets
Supporting Wanchain’s ecosystem cross-chain asset into its XPOS devices is in the work. Wanchain is an advanced blockchain interoperability platform using atomic swaps and circumventing the need for cross-chain verification. Assets such as WAN, Wanchain Native Coin, WBTC, WEOS, WETH, etc. will be added to the XPOS® system, making them easily accessible to users in over 30 countries.
Crypto Zoo is live!
On July 28, we’ve released the Crypto Zoo DApp on the XWallet. Crypto Zoo is an advanced DApp designed to mitigate the risks and protect users’ digital assets. Alongside the launch, we’ve also rolled out two new campaigns on Crypto Zoo: referral program and NPXS transaction discounts which you can enjoy fee discounts and rebate.
Robust KYC on XWallet
As a regulated service provider, we are required to comply with the guidelines set out by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS). To support and comply with AML/CFT standards (Anti-Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism), XWallet users must open or maintain a verified account. As a result of this, starting from July 21, 2020, we are required to institute the mandatory Know Your Customer (“KYC”) procedures for all our customers.. If you have encountered any issues of verifying your account, you can always contact our customer service team for support at https://pundix.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
On-Chain Deposit is available on merchant/distributor management portal
We’ve also delivered improvements of the Merchant/Distributor Management System by adding the option of “On-Chain Deposit”. XPOS® merchants and distributors have the option to deposit USDT or DAI to fill/re-fill their Crypto Sale Account. The fund transfer speed is dependent on the Etherum network conditions.
