Skrill and NETELLER, the digital wallet providers which are part of Paysafe Group, have announced the addition of four new cryptocurrencies to their digital wallets, allowing users to buy, sell and hold the tokens from an optimised and user-friendly interface.

The four coins introduced include Avalanche’s AVAX, the Internet Computer Protocol (ICP) by Dfinity, IoTeX’s IOTX and Axie Infinity’s AXS. Through Skrill or NETELLER, users can set up custom price alerts to notify them of major movements, or set up recurring purchases. The 40+ cryptocurrencies now available directly in Skrill and NETELLER include Bitcoin, Ethereum, Chainlink, Solana and others.

The newly added cryptocurrencies include exponents from major smart contract and computation platforms, including AVAX, ICP and IOTX.

  • AVAX is the native gas fee token on Avalanche’s platform, an open smart contract platform for decentralised applications, which recently saw a powerful surge in activity and popularity.
  • Dfinity Foundation’s project, Internet Computer, is an advanced blockchain-based system that aims to create a decentralised cloud to replace the core centralised infrastructure of the internet — with ICP as its native token.
  • IoTeX is a decentralised blockchain network used and controlled mutually by users, developers, and businesses. Its aim is to facilitate collaboration between humans and IoT devices in a trustless and safe way. IoTeX’s native coin, IOTX, is the utility token that powers the platform.
  • Finally, AXS is the play-to-earn exponent in the updated roster, as the governance token of Axie Infinity – a Play-to-Earn blockchain-based game. On Axie Infinity, unique NFTs are linked to unique animal characters owned by users.

“We are excited to be expanding our selection of cryptocurrencies within Skrill and NETELLER, with our latest batch including some very exciting cryptocurrencies available today. Tokens like AVAX, ICP, IOTX and AXS are great additions for us, allowing our customers to get exposure to the rapidly growing DeFi and Play-to-Earn economies. This cements Skrill and NETELLER as ideal platforms for accessing the vibrant crypto world, and our portfolio tools will surely make life easier for our users as well,” Chirag Patel, CEO of Digital Wallets at Paysafe, said.
