What Is Swipe (SXP)?

While many DeFi tokens are considered to be speculative in nature, SXP primarily serves as a utility token. It powers the entire Swipe ecosystem. By providing utility to token holders, there are multiple incentives to either use or hold SXP.

One core aspect of the Swipe ecosystem is its Visa debit card. It isn’t the first nor the only cryptocurrency debit card in existence. However, unlike similar projects, users don’t need to stake SXP to be able to use the debit card service.

There are a few different versions of the Swipe debit card. While holding SXP is not a requirement, SXP token holders are able to obtain the higher-tier cards. The high-tier cards include benefits, such as subscriptions to Netflix or Spotify, no foreign transaction fees, and discounts through Starbucks, Uber, Apple Music, and Airbnb.

Swipe is a platform that looks to form a bridge between the fiat and cryptocurrency worlds with its API that is designed to create global payment cards powered by its native SXP token.

Swipe also has an on-chain product called Swipe Swap, an Automated Market Maker which is forked by Uniswap, SushiSwap, and THORchain and is powerd by Swipechain.

This ecosystem is powered by the Swipe Token (SXP), which functions as the fuel for the Swipe Network, and is used for paying transaction fees, and securing Swipechain through bonding and governance.

Swipe was founded by Joselito Lizarondo, an early Bitcoin investor and individual with a wealth of experience in startup businesses. Lizarondo currently serves as CEO of the platform.

In July 2020, it was announced that Swipe was acquired by Binance — one of the world’s leading digital asset exchanges — for an undisclosed sum.

Swipe currently powers the world’s largest digital asset exchanges, Binance and FTX, connect to the world’s largest payment network, Visa, through its Swipe API.

The Swipe API enables real-time cryptocurrency to fiat conversions with just a swipe of a debit card at a point of sale or ecommerce transaction which enables Swipe to create a frictionless user-expereience for its clients. Bundled in the Swipe API is Swipe Rewards, a card-linked-offer cashback network that lets cardholders earn up to 30% back at participating retailers.

Swipe (SXP) is an ERC-20 token, as a result, its integrity is maintained by Ethereum’s proof-of-work (POW) consensus mechanism and massive node network.

Swipechain utilizes a Byzantine Fault Tolerance consensus mechanism via Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS).
