We have been pushing and expanding our footprint globally and it wouldn’t have been possible without our community’s strong support, so we like to say thank you to each of you.
Last month, our distribution partners launched a limited edition of the XPASS card and extended the reach of our blockchain technology to South Africa. The XPOS became the first blockchain device to receive the CE and TRA certification which will play a crucial part in a number of initiatives which we are rolling out. For more details of activities and progress in April, read on.
New XPOS merchant highlights and distribution partnershipsTorosushi — the Netherlands
Now you can spend crypto at a sushi store in the Netherland. Torosushi has brought the XPOS to Almere, where customers can purchase their fresh sushi favorites with Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Binance coin (BNB), and Pundi X token (NPXS).
More newsstands have XPOS — Brazil
In São Paulo, XPOS is fast becoming a common sight as they are being deployed in more places in our effort to make crypto truly more accessible in people’s everyday lives. Next time when you are in São Paulo, don’t forget to use your BTC, ETH, BNB, and NPXS with these XPOS newsstand merchants.
Jackscoot — France
Jackscoot, a motobike repair shop in Paris, has installed an XPOS to accept crypto payments and enable topping up of BTC, ETH, BNB, and NPXS for their customers.
iBank XPASS — Canada
Bank Digital, a Canadian-based crypto trading platform and XPOS distributor, has issued a limited edition iBank XPASS with designs based on the paintings of the well-known artist Cao Jun — “Purple Pavilion and Cyan Cloud,” “Once in a Millennium,” and “Spring’s News”. These custom-designed iBank XPASSes will be available during the Consensus Week 2019 in New York.
The limited edition iBank XPASS is made possible with the help of iBank Digital, IOST block and Art Impact Foundation through an exclusive collaboration with world-renowned artist Cao Jun. You can pre-order the cards at https://www.ibankdigital.io/ibankxpass
DoshEX — South Africa
DoshEX, a digital asset exchange in South Africa, will begin pushing digital transformation through Pundi X technology. A phased roll-out of the XPOS and XPASS cards will be undertaken, with 5,000 cards available for the first wave of early adopters.
DoshEX CEO Alex de Bruyn noted, “It was essential to roll out trusted and proven technology as our objective is to rapidly build South Africa’s first point-of-sale cryptocurrency network. This is why we have partnered with Pundi X. We believe XPOS will rapidly become your crypto ATM and transaction-enabler at your local coffee shop or high street store.”
Product DevelopmentXPOS is the world first blockchain point of sale smart device to receive CE and TRA certification
It is important for blockchain solutions to keep up with the fast pace of technology, but it is even more important for these solutions to be compliant with global health, safety, and environmental protection standards. April saw the first ever blockchain-based point-of-sales (POS) smart device to receive Conformité Européenne (CE) certification in the European Union after Pundi X met all the requirements and standards laid out by the European Economic Area (EEA). In addition, XPOS also received UAE TRA certification through ebooc, our partner in Dubai, to ensure that the rollout of Pundi X technology across the Emirates is in full compliance.
XWallet updated with FX conversion and an added 2FA feature
To further assist token holders who are taking part in the NPXS and NPXSXEM conversion, the team has added a new feature in the XWallet app to facilitate the process. After introducing the FX staking mechanism in March, in order to ensure a fairer distribution and allow more people to participate in the conversion, the conversion mechanism has also been updated. The first-come, first-served component is deactivated during the first 20 seconds of each daily conversion period.
Another feature added to the XWallet in April is Google Authenticator (GA) which is to achieve maximum security for XWallet accounts. In addition to SMS and Email verification codes, this is an additional two-step verification process to protect your account’s safety by using the One-time Password Algorithm within 30 seconds. The GA code can be used in the login, transfer and change login password options to achieve greater security for your XWallet accounts. To activate the GA verification service, you can follow the steps here.

We gave away 10 XFANS to the 10 users with the best tweets in response to the question, “Why do you want an XFAN?” We initially allocated only five (5) XFANS for the event, but due to the overwhelming response, we increased the prize to 10 units so more people could enjoy the breeze in the upcoming summer.
