It’s time we will highlight the revolutionary FIO Request feature and recap our impactful presence at one of the industry’s most influential gatherings.

FIO Request: Simplifying Crypto Transactions

The FIO Request system is akin to Venmo for cryptocurrency, offering a secure, censorship-resistant method for requesting payments across different blockchains. With FIO Request, transactions are streamlined between any two FIO Handles, ensuring that payment details remain encrypted and visible only to the transaction participants. This feature supports a variety of tokens and even fiat payments, enhancing flexibility and usability without the risk of errors commonly associated with manual address entry. Moreover, it is designed to prevent common security threats such as man-in-the-middle attacks, making it a reliable choice for users globally.

What makes FIO Request truly remarkable is its ability to ensure error-free and secure transactions:

  • Secure Transactions: Requests are securely sent between two FIO Handles on the FIO Chain, with payment details end-to-end encrypted, making them accessible only to the sender and receiver.
  • Universal Compatibility: Whether it’s crypto tokens, lightning invoices, or even fiat payments, FIO Request supports it all.
  • Enhanced Usability: Users simply confirm payment details, significantly reducing the risk of sending to an incorrect address or network.
  • Robust Security: By cryptographically verifying each request, the risk of man-in-the-middle attacks is eliminated.
  • Gas-Free Efficiency: For most users, utilizing FIO Request incurs no additional fees.

About FIO:

FIO, the Foundation for Interwallet Operability, is a decentralized consortium that supports the ongoing development, integration, and promotion of the FIO Protocol. The protocol, built on the FIO Chain, a dPoS blockchain, serves as an open-source, decentralized usability layer solution that works across all blockchains. FIO Protocol uses human-readable Handles to replace the complexity, risk, and inconvenience associated with blockchain-based transactions. Fueling the ecosystem utilization is the FIO Token ($FIO), which powers transactions and incentivizes network participants.
