Just two weeks back we successfully closed our ICO, hitting our $8.85m hard cap. Then last week we announced our payment card partnership with Wirex. And today is another BIG day for Wollo, our new family-friendly cryptocurrency.

After much hype and unprecedented support and promotion, our Wollo token is now available to buy on Bitfinex here https://www.bitfinex.com/t/WLO:USD.

Importantly, this listing is also a necessary step in our product roadmap that allows us to deliver our partnership with Wirex whose VISA card will let holders spend Wollo (WLO) in the real world.

If you’re new to it, Bitfinex is one of the world’s leading and largest crypto exchanges — and Wollo is the first ever Stellar (XLM) token to list on it. I’m pleased to say that this little bit of crypto history marks the start of a new, long-term relationship between Pigzbe and Bitfinex to promote financial education and access to cryptocurrencies. (Check out their blog about it here.)

As many of you will know, it’s highly uncommon for a new token to list so quickly on a major exchange. WLO’s listing on Bitfinex a key component of the prize for winning the International ICO Race in Lugano Switzerland. Voted for by a panel of world-renowned experts, the Pigzbe team saw off stiff competition from 140 candidates from 38 countries for the listing and $600,000.

Here’s what Bitfinex CTO Paolo Ardoino had to say about today’s news:

“As crypto and blockchain technology rapidly changes the future of finance, we are passionate about providing education to open this world up to everyone. Bitfinex has heritage in this space, heavily investing in open-source and building a community for developers. Now we are excited about taking this one step further by partnering with Pigzbe, sharing knowledge with millions of families around the globe and educating the user base of Bitfinex’s tomorrow.”

With Wollo our aim has always been to drive mass adoption, so partnering with Bitfinex, the world’s leading crypto exchange, is a huge coup that will bring the kind of liquidity Wollo needs.

The Wollo listing is just the first step. With Bitfinex’s help and support with a range of new projects and products, we’re excited by the prospect of having millions of children growing up with Wollo as the first cryptocurrency they encounter in their lives, even before Bitcoin.

In the meantime, stay tuned! We’ve got a load of exciting updates for you, so don’t go anywhere.
