Some of the major problems faced by cryptocurrencies are less liquidity and fewer acceptances or regulations. "Liquidity simply means the ability of an asset to be easily converted into cash at an instance or when it is readily on demand".
There are certain differences between fiat currencies and cryptocurrencies which I will mention as follows :
- Fiat currency is generally accepted in the country it belongs.
- Fiat currency can easily be spent anywhere in various countries.
- Fiat currency is accepted for shopping in every store in different countries.
For cryptocurrencies, these are not the case. In fact, most people in different countries haven't heard about cryptocurrency, some might have heard but still don't know how it works. Most stores do not accept cryptocurrencies as a means of payment or medium of exchange.
All the highlights mentioned above for cryptocurrencies result in low acceptance and low acceptance of asset results in lesser usages and low values. Some people find it very hard and inconvenient to go through exchanges before they can exchange their digital currency to fiat currency.
TenX blockchain came up with an innovation that can make cryptocurrencies to be spendable anytime anywhere exactly like fiat currencies and easy usages of cryptocurrencies will result in high demands and high demands increase prices.
TenX is a blockchain platform that aims to build a bridge between real-world payment platforms and the cryptocurrency world, offering users an easy to use interface for spending cryptocurrencies instantly, anytime anywhere.
TenX is able to achieve this by connecting to blockchains and making use of the COMIT network (a cryptographically secure off-chain multi-asset instant transaction network).
The payment system of TenX includes the TenX crypto debit card that can be used in over 200 countries tied to TenX wallet which comprises several cryptocurrencies. Unlike other crypto debit cards with just single coin support, TenX supports various cryptocurrencies (including Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum) and is planning to add more as the project evolves.
TenX takes fees from cardholders for various transactions they do. In simple words, they are selling Debit Card services for crypto and $2.75 transaction fee will be levied for every ATM transaction or withdrawal.
TenX Pay token
TenX pay token will be used to carry out transactions within the TenX wallet, it will also serve as supporting fees alongside with other cryptocurrencies in the TenX wallet.
Users of the TenX platform will be rewarded with PAY tokens enabling them to be holders of TenX Pay token. Holders of the TenX Pay token receive 0.5% of total payment volume on the TenX platform made by users.
TenX Brief History
TenX was previously known as OneBit because then TenX only focused on mother of cryptocurrencies "Bitcoin". TenX was founded in the year 2015 by dedicated team members having good visions for blockchain and cryptocurrencies with the aim that cryptocurrencies will replace fiat currencies in the near future. TenX was founded to be generally adoptable, usable around the globe.
In the year 2015, the giant payment processor PayPal saw the vision of OneBit and ventured into it for continual growth by supporting it with funds. Soon after that, OneBit rebranded its name from One-Bit to TenX.
A name inspired by not wanting to grow “one-bit” at a time anymore, but rather by “10x”—meaning ten times as much, covering the whole range of crypto space. source
As the story continues, during the year 2017, on the 24th of June, 2017, TenX completed one of the greatest and most rapidly funded initial token sales in crypto history, having sold around 100 million PAY tokens and received $80 million worth of cryptocurrencies within 7 minutes.
As well as the other innovations of TenX the charging structure is also very attractive.
TenX offers the best and straightforward charges to its customers. The charges are listed below;
- TenX has no transaction fees or foreign exchange fees on wallet transactions.
- TenX charges one-time issuing fee of $15 for the physical card.
- TenX charges one-time issuing fee of $1.50 for a digital card.
- TenX charges no annual fee to use the card but when you spend lesser than $1000 in a year, you’ll be charged $10.
Fees are deducted from the cryptocurrency stored in your TenX wallet app.
Holding TenX (PAY) token could lead to huge profits when the price increases.
TenX rewards people who hold TenX PAY token with 0.5% of all the total transactions consumed monthly with ETH. Increase in transactions and volume of TenX services could lead to hourly payouts from monthly payouts.
Additionally, token holders receive 0.1% cash back rewards in the form of PAY token and 0.5% of all aggregate transaction volume is paid out monthly to PAY holders too.
Do I have to store my PAY tokens in the TenX wallet?
It doesn't matter where you hold your PAY tokens, be it in TenX wallet or ERC20-enabled wallets makes no difference. Holding your PAY tokens in your TenX wallet does not give additional benefit beyond making your tokens spendable anywhere via TenX card.
TenX rewards you with 0.1% each time you transact or use TenX card. TenX rewards are paid using PAY token which can be used to pay fees or sold to open markets.
