Blade Wallet will launch on the Hedera network in April 2022, with the support of The HBAR Foundation. Blade’s mission is to be the portal of choice for those seeking control of their financial and other activities in the web3 world.  

Putting the adage “social good makes good business sense” into practice, the Blade team is identifying and creating 'community/market' fit products that both benefit society and are consumer friendly.

Blade Wallet's roadmap includes key features that will provide users:

  • Android and iOS versions (mobile friendly)
  • Enterprise grade security (fully audited)
  • Access to decentralized liquidity (DEXs)
  • Access to ‘Play to L-Earn’ gaming
  • Meaningful opportunities to receive rewards for participating in network consensus (staking)
  • A reliable store of value and purchasing power (stablecoins)
  • Ability to manage and transact NFT portfolios
  • Opportunities to earn through referrals and other rewards programs

In order to build more than just a crypto wallet, the Blade team carefully chose to operate on Hedera, a best-in-class network that provides its users:

  • Optimized performance without sacrificing security
  • Fast transactions (10x faster than other blockchain alternatives)
  • Low and predictable gas fees
  • Carbon negative status

The Blade team will continue to identify and enhance functionalities that are valued by the community to ensure users enjoy best-in-class cutting edge technology, performance, and security.

Additionally, the Blade team will actively seek opportunities to support and provide access to underrepresented and/or marginalized communities with the understanding that society now has more than one way to access and manage their wealth. This work is being carried out by Blade Foundation through the use of Blade Wallet. The Blade Foundation is already working with non-profit organizations such as the Living Waters Phuket Foundation to bring positive impact businesses to the Hedera community.
