ixFintech Group announces launch of ixWallet 2.0

IX Fintech Group Limited (ixFintech) is honoured to announce the successful integration of privacy identity authentication and post quantum computing security into ixWallet to safeguard users’ identity against cybersecurity risk. In Q1 2022, the company also aims to launch ixPoint, the company’s first-ever reward point scheme, as well as the first asset-backed TeaCoin.

The new version of ixWallet comes with two new indexes: ixBitcoin and ixEthereum. These indexes in combination with ixCrypto Index facilitate easy comparison of the performance of the whole Crypto market versus the performance of Bitcoin and Ethereum. ixWallet 2.0 offers more efficient and flexible KYC (Know Your Customer) processes depending on the users’ needs and usage.

“The ixWallet 2.0 marks a momentous milestone in our development journey to provide enhanced protection for our customers’ valuable digital assets. In addition to serving users who want anonymity while satisfying regulators’ requirements on KYC and security, ixWallet 2.0 allows users to choose whether they want to conduct full KYC for regulated activities through its settings,” said Irene Wong, the founder and CEO of ixFintech. This launching event also records a successful collaboration with Polydigi Tech Ltd for its pending patent on the world’s first Anti-Authorised Push Payment (Anti-App) scams and phishing Digital ID authentication s-Factr™ solution and IronCAP, a code-based cryptographic technology by 01 Communique Laboratory Inc as announced in Q2 2021. These technologies are likely to make ixWallet 2.0 the safest digital wallet in the world.

The company is also excited to announce the successful completion of the Proof-Of-Concept Project (PoC Project) on the world’s first audited Tea Cake Tokenisation. The Financial Services and the Treasury Bureau (FSTB) launched the Fintech Proof-of-Concept Subsidy Scheme (the “PoC Scheme”) aiming to encourage traditional financial institutions (the “FIs”) to partner up with Fintech companies to conduct the PoC Project on innovative financial service products. An asset-backed token is a digital token based on blockchain technology that derives its value based on the underlying asset. Coin holders may benefit from the liquidity and price performance of the token in the secondary market. The TeaCoin was designed with the traditional tea cake in mind and is available on ixWallet 2.0 for users to understand asset tokenisation. In the future, investors can store TeaCoins on ixWallet and this will allow them to safeguard their assets until they need to transfer such assets to another party or use them to redeem a real physical tea cake from the tea company.
