Announcements > Making Crypto Accessible To All — Meet Wollo (WLO) November 12, 2018

On November 19th, Bitfinex will list Wollo (WLO), a unique token by one of the most innovative and refreshing projects geared toward mass adoption of cryptocurrencies and financial education.

This is a special moment for us because it’s the first Stellar token to be released on Bitfinex. This is a significant milestone in the Bitfinex roadmap, and in the Stellar roadmap too, following the IBM partnership and Chain acquisition.

Crypto and mass adoption

The capabilities of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies have evolved so fast, we are now in a position where mass adoption is possible. However there is currently a large gap between its potential, and the level of crypto literacy amongst the general public.

At Bitfinex we are passionate about providing education to help open up the world of crypto to everyone. We have deliberately built a community for developers, investing in open-source to share knowledge and collaborate.

It’s for these reasons we like Stellar, a platform where communities like families can form micro-financing networks around a shared interest. And it’s for these reasons we like Pigzbe, the issuer of WLO. Their device and DApp is created specifically to teach children about 21st-century money, and WLO has been carefully designed to be family friendly.

What’s next?

The Wollo token listing is just the first step, marking the start of an ongoing collaboration with Pigzbe and Wollo. Specifically, Bitfinex’s API’s could be integrated to bring access to simple trading amongst smaller communities like schools, which Pigzbe access.

We look forward to welcoming Wollo to the Bitfinex platform on November 19th and helping Pigzbe drive adoption and family empowerment. We hope you will get behind it too.
