FIO Partners with SecuX to Ease of FIO Protocol to Cold Storage

We are excited to announce that FIO has teamed up with SecuX, one of the world’s leading blockchain security companies and cryptocurrency hardware wallet manufacturers, to integrate the FIO Protocol and support for the FIO Token, including staking, into the SecuX suite of hardware wallets. Users of the SecuX wallets and corresponding app will be able to take advantage of utilizing features of the FIO Protocol, which makes using any cryptocurrency easier and less prone to mistakes.

SecuX is more than just a wallet manufacturer. SecuX is a blockchain security company dedicated to developing comprehensive solutions to secure people’s valuable digital assets through blockchain technology. One of the greatest features of both cryptocurrency and NFTs is the ability to provide clear and irrevocable ownership, however, having a place to store those assets is the key to not having that ownership compromised. SecuX offers one of the best lines of cryptocurrency hardware wallets, including the world’s first NFT hardware wallet, Nifty, which gives users a secure device to store their NFTs offline and display their NFTs. With the corresponding SecuX mobile app, users can keep their NFTs secure while accessing popular marketplaces and DeFi applications to view NFTs on Opensea, visit Etherscan, or even check rarity tracker tools. SecuX has a line of metal seed phrase solutions called XSeed, and a payment solution for business clients.

With the addition of the FIO Protocol, transacting in cryptocurrency becomes easier for users of SecuX. SecuX will be integrating FIO Crypto Handle registration, FIO Send and Receive, FIO Requests, and FIO Staking. This process removes all the stress and the chance of making a mistake by replacing your long-string public wallet address that you would typically send and receive to with a human-readable FIO Crypto Handle. This makes sending and receiving any cryptocurrency as easy as sending and receiving an email and eliminates the potential to make mistakes and possibly lose your cryptocurrency forever. A FIO Crypto Handle is in the format of username@domain, for example, danny@secux. Users will also have the option to register custom domains and create usernames to register FIO Crypto Handles using their custom domain, for example firstname@lastname. No longer will users have to worry about mistyping a character or any hack or exploit that alters the address where the user is trying to send funds. FIO Requests gives users the ability to request any cryptocurrency from another wallet or user similar to what users of PayPal and venmo are accustomed to, but in this case with any cryptocurrency supported by SecuX. Recipients of FIO requests can simply approve the request instead of having to copy and paste those long-string public wallet addresses. Also, as mentioned earlier, the FIO Token will be supported within the SecuX wallet so users can easily store and stake FIO tokens. Those tokens can be used to purchase custom FIO Crypto Handles, or stake tokens to participate in governance and earn rewards. You can learn more and purchase your SecuX wallet at https://secuxtech.com/ and download their corresponding mobile app on your iPhone or Android phone. Get your SecuX wallet set up and keep an eye out for the announcement when the FIO Protocol is fully integrated into SecuX.
