Aside from its crypto trading platform, Zipmex has focused on expanding the ways in which its users can spend and earn rewards via their own Zipmex token (ZMT).

The exchange’s “earn” products include ZipUp — an account with daily payouts of up to 8% APY, and  ZipLock – a fixed-term earnings account with APY up to 14% plus bonuses for ZMT holders.

ZipSpend is a payment solution for businesses looking to accept cryptocurrency. It has already facilitated several regional firsts in luxury vehicles, art, and property transactions.
This month, Zipmex announced the Zipmex Card, a Visa-payment card to be launched later this year.
On top of these core offerings and coming soon, ZipWorld will enable users to redeem exclusive lifestyle products and access one-of-a-kind experiences and rewards using the Zipmex token (ZMT). Lastly, Zlaunch will give users early access to investment tokens on the Zipmex exchange.

“We’d like to thank the almost 1M registered users who have joined us so far. This funding will allow us to continue to build out the Zipmex ecosystem to bring more value, experiences, and innovative products to our community.”
– Marcus Lim, CEO & Co-Founder of Zipmex
