We are rolling out new exciting features and support in the XWallet app, including Telegram chat, Crypto Gift, QTUM support in the virtual card, improvements of user experience and more.

In this version, it has integrated with instant messaging app Telegram, allowing users to send and receive tokens while chatting with others. The supporting tokens for this new feature include BTC, ETH, NPXS, BNB, XEM, and NPXSXEM.

“Since we launched the XWallet, many users have been introduced to various cryptocurrencies and use cases, allowing them to be more comfortable in owning and using digital assets. With these new features, we hope that XWallet users will find more ways to use their crypto assets through our app.” — Zac Cheah, Co-Founder and CEO of Pundi X.

The XWallet app, which has over 250,000 registered users worldwide, is part of Pundi X’s global payment ecosystem powered by the blockchain technology. XWallet users can transact with Pundi X’s partner merchants across 25 countries and pay for their services using a variety of supported cryptocurrencies offline such as BTC, ETH, BNB, KNC, KCS, QTUM, XEM and Pundi X’s own NPXS token.

With this update, XWallet users will be able to use new features when they chat with their friends on Telegram. Among these features is the ability to send and receive tokens via Telegram, which they can then store in their XWallet app.

These tokens will be placed in Crypto Gift that they can send to their friends and family via Telegram without paying any fees. The Crypto Gift which is sent will contain a certain amount of crypto tokens taken from the sender’s XWallet account. When the receiver opens a Crypto Gift, the crypto tokens from it will be credited into receiver’s XWallet.

It’s easy to send Crypto Gift to your Telegram contacts with three simple steps (see the image above).

You are free to send cryptos either in a private chat or a group chat. When sending cryptos to the group chat, you can decide the number of people who are going to split your Crypto Gift. People who open your Crypto Gift will get randomly distributed tokens.

To experience this new Crypto Gift feature, Pundi X will host its first Crypto Gift event in its official Telegram group at 20:00–21:00 GMT+8 on July 12, 2019. It will be on “first come, first received” basis. 4,000 of Crypto Gifts will be ready for you to grab.

To make sure to receive Crypto Gift from this event, the participants are required to install or upgrade to the latest version of the XWallet app to 2.0.1. Here are the links to download:

The Crypto Gift feature is now in beta version. Known issues include translation errors and incorrect exchange rate display occurs when switching the language options which will be fixed in the next few days.

We continuously improve this feature and offers better crypto transfer experience for Telegram users. Your comments and feedback are always welcome!
