Many of you know that we have been off to a good and busy start in 2021.
In February, we continued building and improving our platform as well as engaging with the community. It’s important to be constantly in touch with our users as we grow our digital footprint. We would like to highlight the fact that Indonesia’s Commodities and Futures Trading Agency (Bappebti) has recently approved NPXS and FX as tradable assets. There are continuous XPOS improvements and growing adoption. You’ll see all of the details in the rundown below.
Again we are grateful for your hearty support and feedback so that we can further improve our solutions and products.
New features added to XPOS distributor and merchant portal
Based on the XPOS merchants’ feedback, we’ve made improvements on the back-end portal for distributors and merchants to support exporting orders from the Cashier module, including the data of order service fee rate, tax rate, commission rate, and other items. For orders from the Crypto Sale module, one can now export the data including device IMEI data, service fee, tax, commission fees, commission paid as well as other data.
Also we have updated the daily transaction limit per XPOS unit. You can view the details here.
If the distributor/merchant needs to increase their XPOS daily limit, send an email to our XPOS customer support (support [at] pundix.com) to get the limits increased beyond the default amount.
f(x)Wallet preview version supports multiple blockchains and integrates Crypto Bank features
Function X developers have released the preview version of the f(x)Wallet, a blockchain wallet that allows users to have their own private keys, swap tokens, and use crypto banking services. It is set to support Bitcoin mainnet, Ethereum mainnet (and testnet), Function X testnet (and more) making it one of the first wallets to support multiple blockchain networks.
Please note that this is not a custodial wallet like XWallet. Users own their private keys. Please make sure you backup your wallet, write down the recovery phrases and keep them in a safe place.

Poll of NPXS Supply Reduction: over 88% participants said “YES”
On February 10, we proposed a plan to reduce the supply of NPXS from 258 billion to 258 million, a deflationary move that will continued to be followed by quarterly token removal. Holders will be required to swap 1000 NPXS for 1 new NPXS token. There will no change in the total value of the new total tokens a user holds after token reduction compared to the total value of the old tokens held before reduction. The NPXS token economy model remains unchanged.
A poll was held for NPXS holders to participate from 00:00:00 GMT+8 on Feb 16 to 23:59:59 on Feb 22, 2021. In total, there were 201 valid entries choosing YES to the reduction plan and 26 choosing NO. Over 88% of the participants agree with the NPXS reduction plan.
After taking into consideration the poll results, the product roadmap, committee feedback and the market condition, the team has decided to follow the collective feedback and proceed with the token reduction plan. The reduction plan will be executed by the end of March.
We have also received 224,802 NPXS which includes duplicate and error amount entries. As previously announced, these NPXS tokens will be burned at the end of March together with the Q1 2021 burn.
