The launch of the GENE Wallet and the GENE Card, comes as a result of our continuous research and development effort in making PARKGENE the standard for the next generation Parking Market and enable the GENE Token to become the primary means of payment for all automotive industry payments.
We firstly enable users to store their GENE tokens – secondly store other cryptocurrency as well as FIAT currency and to use the wallet to pay for services across the PARKGENE and the automotive industry ecosystems, as well as spending their cryptocurrency for traditional payments of any kind.
‘’We are excited to launch the GENE Wallet, a powerful, convenient, and differentiated multi-cryptocurrency wallet, for iOS and Android, able to store Ether, BTC, GENE and other ERC-20 Tokens and handle credit and debit cards for FIAT transactions’’ said John Zarifis, CTO of PARKGENE, “In addition to the GENE Mobile Wallet launch, we are adding E-Money / Debit Card Functionality with the addition of the GENE Card, planned for Q3 2018, in our roadmap. Users will be able to connect their GENE wallet to a physical card through which they can buy products and services using FIAT currency. The GENE Card will provide a powerful, easy, and flexible way to exchange cryptocurrencies to FIAT by utilizing real-time dynamic algorithms to maximize the user’s Crypto currency portfolio value”.
