You can now purchase ICX, ICON’s native token, at Crypto.com’s pioneering wallet and card app for Android and iOS. This new partnership allows users to buy ICX with no fees. Credit cards and bank transfers are both supported, enabling easy conversion of cryptocurrencies into fiat. This gives ICONists the chance to spend ICX in real life (at over 40M merchants globally) and is a solid step toward ICON’s goal of achieving mainstream adoption.
Kris Marszalek, Co-Founder and CEO of Crypto.com said, “we strongly identify with ICON’s mission to bridge gaps within the blockchain ecosystem. Crypto.com is keen to add value to their mission and accelerate the world’s transition to blockchain and cryptocurrency.”
“Crypto.com’s Wallet & Card App will offer the ICON community increased efficiency and enhanced security in trading and converting crypto assets. The ICON Foundation will continue securing diverse and strong partnerships to allow for our community to manage and use ICX conveniently,” added Min Kim, Council Member of the ICON Foundation
In light of the announcement, Crypto.com is offering a limited-time listing promotion in which they will be giving away ICX tokens valued at a total of 20,000 USD. The campaign will run for a week, starting Wednesday, May 22nd at 9:00 UTC. For full details on eligibility and reward distribution, refer to ICON’s Medium announcement.
