Public Mint Community Updates #10
May 6, 2022 | Mobile Wallet v0.1.0; first NFT marketplace on Public Mint; Early Adopter NFT and more
Welcome back, folks!
This time around we thought we’d throw a couple cool little facts your way, before we move on to our monthly catch up.
Starting with what we think is a bit of great news: More than 90% of Public Mint users have USD+ on their wallets — this means our community is fully realizing the raw potential of the EARN program. And we couldn’t be happier!
And chasing with a nifty mini-milestone: our Public Mint Mobile wallet just went over 2k downloads between Google Play and the Apple App Store. Not too shabby for a beta 😎
Public Mint Mobile Wallet v0.10
The last update before our next major overhaul is out, and v0.10 introduced a few improvements to make for a better and safer experience. Here’s a couple of them:
You might notice we have a new layout for the “amount” insertion field, and an updated and improved flow for sending funds, as well as for the EARN staking/unstaking protocol.
MINT withdrawal support was added to “History”, so now you can see the MINT tokens you have withdrawn from the Public Mint mainnet using our ETH Bridge.
Last but not least, to provide you with more and better information when using our Mobile Wallet, we introduce push notifications for deposits, withdrawals and KYC procedures — and a helpful FAQ link was added to the “tax information” screen.

NFTSmasher is live on Public Mint
We were all waiting for it, and now it’s finally here: the world’s first fiat native NFT marketplace is live on Public Mint!
NFTSmasher allows you to mint, launch, and trade NFTs directly against USD, the base currency of the Public Mint blockchain. And you can rest easy, knowing every artist in the platform will be verified by the NFTSmasher team.
Early Adopter NFT released
We all know the early bird gets the worm, but our Early Adopters will be reaping benefits for a long time — starting off with a 5% additional APY until the end of 2022!
The NFTs are being held with NFTSmasher, we’re guessing you might’ve heard about them 😏
The claiming period will go on until June 3rd, but the quicker you get it, the quicker you can show it off 💎
See how you can claim your NFT in this article.
As stated above, there’s a major overhaul in the works, and v1.0 of our Mobile Wallet is right around the corner, and we have a couple surprises coming your way. We’ll be sharing further details on this topic very soon.
With the launch of v1.0 of the app, Phase 2 of our Loyalty Program will quickly follow. This new stage will bring three different boosts to your APY:
- Proportional to the USD you hold on EARN (this will replace the flat 5% for early birds, except for NFT holders);
- Proportional to the amount of MINT tokens you hold;
- Flat bonus for opting to receive 100% of the yield in MINT tokens.
Check out this article for a full breakdown of our Loyalty Program.
To cap it all off, a little teaser: in the near future we are enabling funding and withdrawal of USDC via other supported networks. Among other advantages, we’ll now be able to bypass the high fees imposed by the Ethereum network.
That’s it for April, join us in our next Community Update for a fresh batch of goodies and news.
Thank you, and see you on the other side 🟢
