TenX believes in connecting anyone and anything to decentralised services. Its mission is to bring the entire financial system right to your fingertips. TenX is a Singapore-based blockchain company that makes cryptocurrencies instantly spendable anytime anywhere. It gives people an opportunity to conveniently use their digital assets in everyday life.

TenX was founded in June of 2015. Back then, the company was called OneBit, as it was still focusing only on Bitcoin. The four co-founders Toby Hoenisch, Julian Hosp, Paul Kittiwongsunthorn, and Michael Sperk believe that the blockchain and cryptocurrency are the future of payments. They founded the company with a vision to have assets on the blockchain, available not only to industry insiders but to anyone in the world.

The TenX payment system includes TenX mobile wallet that can be funded with different cryptocurrencies (available on iOS and Android) and TenX debit/prepaid card, which can be used in almost 200 countries at over 42 million points of acceptance online and offline upon its launch.

It offers users access to several cryptocurrencies making it convenient and secure. Creating an outstanding experience from product to the customer is at the very core of what we do.

Success over the Years

Incubated by Paypal in 2016

TenX received its first outside investment in 2016, which was also the time when PayPal started to incubate the company for further growth. The company rebranded to TenX—a name inspired by not wanting to grow “one-bit” at a time anymore, but rather by “10x”—meaning ten times as much, covering the whole range of crypto space.

ICO in 2017

On the 24th of June, 2017, TenX completed one of the biggest and most rapidly funded initial token sales to date, having sold around 100 million PAY tokens and received 80 million USD worth of cryptocurrencies in 7 minutes. TenX is one of the few companies which has conducted a token sale while having a working product and an existing global user base. TenX has set the standard for a well-executed token sale. During the token sale, we accepted one of the most diverse ranges of coins and tokens any company has ever accepted, with Bitcoin, Ether, Litecoin, Dash and 18 different ERC20s.
