Public Mint Community Updates #11
Jun 3, 2022 | Mobile Wallet v1.0 launched; new Discord server unveiled; Phase 2 of EARN Loyalty Program is live, and more
Spring was blooming and business was booming this past May, as Public Mint crossed a couple of major milestones in the last month of Spring.
Starting off with…
Public Mint Mobile Wallet v1.0
Good things (and pretty apps) come to those who wait — and here it is: the first full version Public Mint Mobile Wallet app is finally available for download!
We had previously released several builds of the app, having it available in an open beta since last February. This was instrumental in identifying and focusing on what improvements could be implemented in the allotted time frame.
Major changes include:
- EARN program built into the app, sporting a brand new section exclusively dedicated to our high yield solution;
- you can now deposit and withdraw directly to/from your EARN account;
- a new color scheme, designed from scratch to include lighter, more sophisticated tones.
As you may imagine, these are just the broad strokes of what’s been improved. Want to get the nitty-gritty details? Check out our Medium article on the release of v1.0.
Public Mint’s new Discord server
Come what may, our most valuable asset will always remain the same: our community. And as you grow, so do we. That’s why we decided it was about time to get a brand new home for our community: Public Mint’s Discord server.
There are a couple of different reasons behind this move. Firstly, we now have the ability to offer different sections and chat rooms for different purposes, providing more and better organized information, in a much safer environment. Also, no bots 😍
We are also able to offer a much wider array of options for you to interact with Public Mint — like the Community AMA with CTO Jorge Pereira we held to celebrate the inauguration of our new venue! Didn’t have a chance to listen in? Don’t worry, you can check our new #ama-replays channel, where we will be keeping all our AMA neatly stored for your convenience.
EARN Loyalty Program starts Phase 2
With the release of our new Mobile Wallet, the stage was set to kick off Phase 2 of the EARN Loyalty Program. This brings about three different boosts to APY that you can opt-in:
- USD deposited on EARN;
- MINT held in your Public Mint wallet;
- Option to receive all rewards in MINT.
You can leverage these boosting factors up to a maximum of 10% extra APY — on top of the base rate, that is.
We also introduced EARN Levels — a fun way for you to keep track of how much you’re EARNing.
Did we tickle your curiosity? Check out this article to see how it all breaks down.
NOTE: Early Adopter NFT holders will keep their 5% bonus until the end of 2022, regardless of the amount of USD being held on EARN. Furthermore, the NFT bonus does not accumulate with the bonus offered by the Loyalty Program — it replaces it.
Much has been done in May, and there’s still much to do in June.
In the upcoming weeks, we’ll be focusing on implementing USDC connectivity with other blockchains, so you’ll be able to deposit and withdraw your USD from and to other networks, while bypassing the ever so high ETH fees.
Also, you might notice some small changes in our website. Although a full-scale revamp is already in the works, we feel that we can immediately improve the look and feel, as well as the overall experience our web page provides, with a few small tweaks.
That’s it for this month’s Community Update.
Thank you, and see you on the other side 🟢
About Public Mint
Public Mint is an open and complete blockchain platform for fiat money, where funds are fully collateralized and held on deposit with regulated, FDIC-insured institutions. Public Mint offers an open, fiat-native blockchain and APIs, ready for anyone to build fiat-based applications and accept credit cards, ACH, wire transfers, stablecoins and more. On top of that, the Public Mint EARN platform offers users automated and diversified returns on USD assets, leveraging the power of blockchain and DeFi.
The EARN program is a community-governed earnings aggregation application built on top of Public Mint’s fiat-native blockchain. The program aims to make it easy and safe for the broader public to tap into the high returns available on the crypto space.
About the MINT Token
The MINT token is core to Public Mint EARN, a program that aggregates different sources of high earnings from the crypto space — both CeFi and DeFi — into a simple, intuitive platform.
The MINT token will not only allow users to participate in the governance of EARN, but will also pay a portion of the earnings of the program to active MINT stakeholders. Much like a traditional fund, these crypto-experts are incentivized to pick the best sources of returns, and the best combination of value and security.
