The wallet and credit card developed by TenX have been tested for payments in 50 countries. The payment platform developed by TenX is powered by a Cryptographically-secure Off-chain Multi-Asset Instant Transaction (COMIT) network. This allows decentralized real-time instant cross-blockchain assets transactions.
TenX has already built an iOS and Android app which serves as both a wallet and a decentralized exchange (with zero fees). TenX mails its users a physical credit which allows them to spend their cyrptocurrency anywhere where VISA or Mastercard are accepted. The platform converts all transactions to the local currency. At this point, TenX’s platform supports Ethereum, Bitcoin, and Dash, and is soon adding other popular cryptocurrencies.

Its own TaaS token (TAAS) is currently trading on Liqui, LiveCoin, and HitBTC exchanges for the price of $2.6. TAAS will distribute profit sharing at the beginning of August after the end of its first full quarter since the fund started making investments.
