We’re excited to share that WAX (WAXP) is now available for purchase for MoonPay customers in the US!

WAX (Worldwide Asset eXchange) is an environmentally friendly, purpose-built blockchain designed for dApps (decentralised applications), NFTs, gaming, virtual worlds, and collectibles.

The WAX blockchain makes it incredibly easy for creators to build, launch, and distribute NFTs to a global participant pool. Brands that have built on WAX include Topps x MLB, Capcom, Atari, Funko, and Lionsgate, to name a few.

The blockchain is also known for being certified carbon neutral. Besides running on an eco-friendly delegated proof of stake system, WAX also has features that allow it to slash CO2 emissions. For example, users can trade NFTs digitally or redeem them for physical collectibles on WAX’s vIRL (virtual in real life) NFT marketplace. The blockchain is able to cut down on environmental waste by only allowing items to be redeemed once in the physical world.

MoonPay has made the buy flow significantly faster and we now offer a fixed quote, guaranteeing the amount of crypto you will receive.

Due to regulatory reasons, WAXP purchases are available in every state except Hawaii, New York, Rhode Island, and the US Virgin Islands.

We’re thrilled to be working with this leading NFT network and can’t wait to see what else is in store!

You can buy WAXP now through MoonPay.
