We’re close to capping the first half of the year, but we assure you that Pundi X has barely scratched the surface in terms of what we can offer in 2019. A lot of works are in progress which we will announce when ready. Nonetheless, we have achieved some very promising milestones for the past few weeks, further highlighting our commitment to bringing easy payments and unparalleled crypto experience to our clients. More product enhancements, merchant activation, greater engagements, and higher security standards — these are what we have delivered last month.
Product DevelopmentXPOS certified by FCC and KC
We are proud to announce that XPOS received certifications from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Korea Certification (KC), on top of the certification it has already received from CE and TRA. These certifications will certainly help build XPOS a trustworthy blockchain device as these markings indicate that from a safety and environmental protection perspective the XPOS can confidently be used by their customers.
Pundi X Open Platform is available for token listing from May 11
At the beginning of the month (1st May) we’ve launched Pundi X Open Platform that allows blockchain developers or businesses to sign up for a developer account to list their ERC20 tokens throughout XPOS, XWallet and XPASS. Not only that, now the developers have the option to create customized XPASS cards. To learn more about how to list on the Open Platform, you can read the instruction here.
NPXS buy back to incentivize quality blockchain developers to list on the Pundi X Open Platform
After announcing Pundi X Open Platform, the team has allocated the tokens from the Partnership Reserve Fund (PRF) to encourage good blockchain projects to list on Pundi X payment platform by subsidizing their initial liquidity pools. The source of PRF is the NPXS that we buy back from the open markets. On May 20, we executed NPXS buybacks equivalent to 500 ETH at around $0.00072 dollars on May 20, 2019.
This month we continue improving XWallet by adding more features and support. Here is a list of improvements we made in May:
We’ve also working hard to make XWallet app on more platform. It is now available on Samsung Galaxy Store.
You can use XWallet app for not only topping up and paying cryptos instantly with XPOS merchants across 30 countries but also sending tokens to any XWallet user in the world without fee when the receiver uses the ‘Collection’ feature. Most of XWallet users are also using staking feature from both XWallet and their own ERC20 private wallets to get FX tokens.
As of today, XWallet has more than 200,000 registered users and growing.
Merchant Adoption and XPOS partner updateDoshEx brought crypto payment to coffee shops in South Africa

The crypto space in Japan is growing at a desirable rate, and we are hopeful that Pundi X will be one of the frontliners in helping BCCC achieve its goals.

Last weekend, the Bogota Chamber of Commerce held the cycle of conferences called "The future of Blockchain in Latin America" . Event that brought together experts and local participants of the Blockchain ecosystem as well as special guests from Russia and Brazil.submitted by crypt0hodl1 to NPXSXEM [link] [comments]
In addition to the participation of the representatives of U.Community , the NEM director for Latin America, Pedro Gutiérrez, took advantage of the space to share with the attendees some data about the Blockchain network that operates the foundation based in Singapore, which has been considered as one of the most solid and promising block networks at present.
Blockchain technology from NEMGutiérrez, began his speech by talking a little about the NEM technology, indicating that it is not only a Blockchain that operates a cryptocurrency, but also integrates a series of improvements that accredit it as a network of third generation blocks, far exceeding the properties offered by the Ethereum ecosystem at the level of development and services.
The director of NEM said that the company's public Blockchain is capable of processing more than 4,000 transactions per second, a figure that increases exponentially for its private network. Among the services that NEM offers to programmers and developers are an encrypted communication system for the transmission of important information; an apostille service to protect the property and authenticity of a product; a mosaic system for the creation of new tokens and digital assets; a service for the creation of domains, Wallets multifirma and voting service, which can be developed with programming languages known as Java, Python, among others.
Gutiérrez stressed that the NEM Foundation has taken important steps in its expansion plan in the continent, but at the level of Colombia it mentioned as important alliances the recently established with the City Hall of Cali and with the Municipality of Córdoba. He also made reference to the progress that has been made in the development of his protocol, which has been strongly supported by Venezuelan programmers who have devoted great efforts to the evolution of their service offerings.
To illustrate to the attendees the applicability that NEM technology has had, Gutiérrez presented some very successful actual use cases:
PundiX and the points of sale for crypto paymentsThe last conference of the event was in charge of Joao Victor Mendes, representative of PundiX for the Latin American region, who presented again the attendees the point of sale developed by the company, better known as XPOS.
Mendes developed in more detail some points that he commented previously during the MeetUp held in the city of Bogotá earlier this month , as he commented a bit about the mission / vision that inspired the creation of the product which is based on the idea of making easier for all people to access cryptocurrencies as simply as shopping in a warehouse or market. He also indicated that only 1% of the world's population makes use of digital currencies and that these assets have proven to be very useful for residents of countries heavily hit by economic and political debacles, as it was in the USA and now It occurs in Venezuela and Argentina.
After sharing this data, Mendes showed the attendees the XPOS device and demonstrated its operation by using the XPASS card. The point of sale operates with several cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Ethereum, XEM, Litecoin, Binance ... among others) and supports different payment methods, such as the use of debit / credit cards with chip and transfers via QR code scanning. The Hardware generates a physical proof of the operation and is protected against hardware modifications as well as practices that may be considered illicit.
Mendes indicated that the product uses NEM layer technology to speed up payments, so when receiving transfers with Bitcoin or Ethereum it is not necessary to wait so long for verification of transactions. At the same time, he indicated that they will soon launch updates and operate on their own Blockchain network, so that interested creators can develop solutions that involve the use of the XPOS device.
As a final point the representative of PundiX indicated that the company has just launched its network in Hong Kong and will soon do so in Japan and South Korea, with the goal of expanding next year this possibility for the Colombian territory.
Before culminating Mendes officially announced that they had closed a commercial agreement with Manticora Capital, company that would carry out the official distribution of the equipment in Colombian territory. The new business partners indicated that they see great potential in this product, since the technology with which this has been developed can be applied to implement even a system of points supported by the legal currency in the country.
