Dear Pundians.

Welcome to the first issue of the 2020 Pundi X Insider monthly report.

It’s just the start of the year, but the team has been on a roll. We wrapped up 2019 with several milestones and we are already beginning to see how 2020 will play out. For the most part, we are positive that this will be an exciting year especially with the foundation we have built for the past two years.

Right at the start of 2020, Pundi X CEO and co-founder Zac Cheah hosted a video session to discuss how our startup progressed in Q4 2019 as well as what’s in store for the upcoming year. The AMA summary report is available here.

For the rest of our January updates, read on:

Product development and partnership

On-chain payment for beta testing

For the past few weeks, we have been developing and testing an exciting new feature on XPOS®, on-chain payment. This allows XPOS® to support crypto payment not only from our XWallet app or XPASS card but also from private wallets, which allow the users to own their private keys. They are Atomic Wallet, Coinbase Wallet, Enjin wallet, MEWConnect, Trust Wallet and more.

This new feature is now available on the XPOS® platform. Here are the steps to accept crypto payment from the private wallet through on-chain payment.

1.Click ‘On-Chain Payment’ on the XPOS® platform.

2. Enter the payment amount.

3. Read terms and conditions. Make sure to read and follow the given instructions before proceeding to the next step.

4. The customer scans the QR code shown on the XPOS® with his or her private wallet.

5. Wait for the confirmation to complete the transaction.

On-chain payment feature on XPOS

Once the transaction is successfully completed, XPOS® will prompt a notification. Please print and handover the receipt to the customer. Currently, ETH and BNB are available for this new feature. We will add more tokens in the near future once this feature is fully tested and developed.

Pundi X Brazil’s website launch

To make it easier for Pundi X customers to understand and access our solutions, especially for those in the key markets, we have launched Pundi X Brazilian website. This is the second fully localized website to cater to the needs of the local markets. The first one is Pundi X Venezuela website, https://www.pundix-venezuela.com/. Now people in Brazil can order XPOS® devices and XPASS cards through the official local support at https://www.pundix.com.br.

CRE listed on Pundi X platform

CRE, Carry Protocol’s token, is now part of the Pundi X payment ecosystem. Carry Protocol is a Blockchain-based Virtuous Cycle platform of purchasing data. The company aims to build a token economy ecosystem where consumers directly control their offline purchasing data to regain their data interests and monetize them. Through the partnership, Carry Protocol will expand accessibility by acquiring users worldwide served by Pundi X. It also plans to accelerate its efforts to tap into Southeast Asia and other overseas markets.

Reseller program is open for small merchants

In 2020, we start opening up for small merchants to purchase XPOS via our official site. Small merchants can sign up directly from https://www.pundix.com and have easy access to our distributor network. We are also expanding more sales channels, both online and offline.
