"You are mixing the two worlds online and offline. If the user spends crypto, we should immediately divert this currency and pay directly. This is a lot of lanes," said TenX co-founder Julian Hosp.

The TenX Card currently supports eight local currencies and processes around US$100,000 in monthly transactions. By the end of 2018, they are targeting one million users and US$10 million in monthly transactions. TenX's efforts to make digital currency can be done easily. Many startups are blockchain based and utilize initial coin offerings (ICO).

Hosp said token sales last month, TenX collected US$80 million with about half of it used to expand operations and the rest for liquidity. The company had previously raised US$120,000 by venture investors and US$1 million by Fenbushi Capital, Ethereal and Vitalik Buterin.

"One thing we want to offer in the end is you can replace cryptococcus in the app. If we do this, we can be a market maker to bring in a lot of revenue," Hosp said.
