HWG Cash Card lets you use cryptocurrencies for payment


Cryptocurrency, powered by blockchain technology, gives us a glimpse of the future of a decentralised, secure digital asset ecosystem. The volatility of cryptocurrencies and lack of commercial use cases remain deterrents to the adoption of digital assets as a serious payment solution. HWGG Capital PLC, a blockchain payment solutions provider, hopes to change this with its latest payment service: HWG Cash Card. The new offering enables consumers to use their digital assets like Bitcoin and Ethereum as payment globally.

Partnering bank like UnionPay and the VISA Payment network, the HWG Cash Card can be used internationally in over 200 countries and businesses across the globe. 

Another plus point of the HWG Cash Card is that it allows you to convert your digital assets for daily online, offline, and withdrawal transactions—as convenient as using cash. With the HWG app and HwgPay wallet you can easily manage your prepaid card balance and check transaction activities on-the-go.

You can top up the prepaid card balance with HWG Cash stable token using the dashboard function on HwgPay wallet. The top-up amount will be reflected in the HwgPay wallet within 24 hours once the transaction is approved and verified by both HWGG Capital and the partnering bank. The wallet system can be funded by blockchain digital assets such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) and HWG Cash (HWGC), and ERC-20 Compliant tokens, or virtually any blockchain token in the future.

HWG Cash is a public chain token that is built on the everiToken public chain, the world’s first token-customised public chain for the token economy. Each HWG Cash token issues into circulation is backed in a one-to-one ratio (HWGC : One USD).
