Wirex Token Finishes IEO

in cryptocurrency •  last year 

What is wirex?

I've been using this service just about since I started using crypto, it's by far the easiest way to cash out as a European crypto-user. To find out what level of account you'd be able to have in your country, check their list of supported countries here.

I've owned the card for a year and a half now, and I never realized I'd be using it as much as I am now. The fees are cheap, the app works brilliantly and has a cool feel to it, it's actually almost fun converting crypto and fiat back and forth like it's no big deal.

Another brilliant reason to own this card is so you can show your crypto-skeptic family members that you can "get it back out" and that it's not "all locked away". It's a great way to get older people involved.

Wirex token

Recently, they held a presale and IEO for their brand-spanking-new token (WXT). I invested a loose £25 during the presale which has now shot up to £50 in value (I wish I'd bought a helluva lot more). However, the presale tokens are locked up for 6 months so it'll be a while before I can sell them. You can now trade them on the OKx exchange.

I was gonna try to hit that 50,000 WXT mark, however that has now shot up to nearly £1000 after the exchange listing, still manageable, just as long as this token's price doesn't behave like BNB where it still goes up - even in a bear market. Both fortunately and unfortunately though, the wirex token economy is very similar to Binance's. We'll have to wait and see.

Utility Token

Like many exchange coins, WXT provides holders with multiple benefits on the exchange and through the card, like BNB where people get lower fees if they hold a certain amount.

I managed to get my hands on the 100,000 limit for the 50% discounted level, so I'm happy even if the assets locked for 6 months. If the price goes up until then, I can sell them with a good profit, if not I still have a good 50% discount and maybe even a decent profit if I even decides to exit.

Lucky! I've noticed my £25 has turned into a £70, you must be up like 2k?! 😲
