Freewallet, the third most popular online wallet for Android devices, has just announced a new EOS wallet. The new wallet will support multiple currencies apart from EOS, but its most important feature is that it will not charge any fees for transferring EOS coins or exchanging them for other tokens.
The new wallet will be available for Android and iOS users alike, and it can be used for storing, receiving, or sending EOS coins. Also, all transactions are completely fee-free, which is a large improvement when compared to many other wallets.
Additionally, the wallet will reportedly support almost any cryptocurrency. That way, all coins can be exchanged for one another in a single place, without having to go to specific exchanges. Furthermore, Freewallet also allows users the ability to swap ERC-20 EOS for the new EOS coin, which is native to EOS blockchain.
Exchange EOS ERC-20 tokens via the new EOS wallet
While EOS has launched its MainNet months ago, on June 1st, there are still EOS holders that have yet to exchange old EOS tokens for the new ones. This is why Freewallet’s founder and CEO, Alvyn Hagg, announced that EOS ERC-20 tokens that were held on Freewallet got swapped for the real EOS coin automatically. The ability to swap the coins on the new wallet as well is included for those users who held their old EOS tokens elsewhere.
Freewallet is known for being very user-friendly, and so far, it supported numerous coins, including Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin, and even Monero, in addition to numerous others. It was first released in January 2016, and since then, it expanded to include Multiwallet, 9 single-currency wallets for iOS, as well as 22 single-currency wallets for Android.
With the addition of a new EOS wallet, Freewallet continues to attract attention and interest from a lot of users. The new wallet will serve as a one-stop shop for numerous cryptocurrency traders, as well as for all EOS. It will certainly make trading easier, and the team’s current goal is to reach, and possibly even beat, MyEtherWallet, a cryptocurrency wallet centered around Ethereum (ETH).

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

“NFTs are extremely flexible in their usage, from digital event tickets to artwork, and while NFTs have a very wide spectrum of uses and categories XENO will initially focus its partnership efforts and its own item curation on three primary areas: gaming, sports & entertainment, and collectibles.”, said XENO NFT Hub president Anthony Di Franco.
He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
