New Feature! Texting Crypto & NFTs on Calaxy Messenger

What if sending crypto was as easy as texting your friends GM? ☕️ What if sending NFTs was as easy as texting a photo of your dog 🐶? What if… there were no more “ifs”?

Starting today, moving digital assets wallet to wallet is as easy as sending a text message, because.. well, it IS sending a text message.

Introducing texting crypto and NFT Collectibles in Calaxy Messenger 🥳. No more copy/pasting wallet addresses. No more gas fees*. No more complicated stuff.

Just. Hit. Send. 🚀


Crypto easy mode is here. (And we think you’re going to love it.)

For too long, crypto has been too hard, leaving most of us frustrated (and intimidated) with a technology that truly wields the power to transform our lives socially and economically, forever.

Today, that changes. Today, crypto has an easy mode. And it starts with peer to peer value transfer in the form of crypto and NFTs on Hedera. You can now text Hedera-based crypto and NFT Collectibles to other Calaxy users in Calaxy Messenger.

How does it work?

Up until today, anytime you wanted to send people crypto or NFTs, you had to get their public wallet address, go buy native network tokens to pay transaction fees, and on some networks, pre-associate the token or NFT you're sending with the recipient's wallet so the transaction would succeed.. blah!! 🤮

This is all pretty annoying and doesn't make crypto very fun. But now... you can just text them.

Text crypto to your friend - set an amount, select which crypto from your wallet and hit send. It all happens directly in Calaxy Messenger.

Simply head to your DM convo with the person you want to send crypto/NFTs to, tap the ⚡ action menu, select the NFT or input the crypto amount.. and hit send 🚀. In seconds (thanks, Hedera 😉) the assets will be settled in the recipient's wallet!

Sending NFT Collectibles - simply scroll and select the NFT right from your wallet, and text it like a photo to your friend.

Which networks are supported?

As of Calaxy v1.4, all Hedera network assets including $HBAR, $USDC, and Hedera NFTs are supported. We’ve got plans to gradually roll out support for 20+ additional networks including Bitcoin ($BTC), Ethereum ($ETH), Flow ($FLOW), Polygon ($MATIC), Solana ($SOL) and more in the coming months. Full details of expanding network support will be published on calaxy.com soon.

The Calaxy wallet will soon support crypto and NFTs from more than 20 blockchain networks including $BTC, $ETH, $FLOW, $MATIC, $SOL, and more.

No network fees!?* 🤯

We're big believers in making crypto fun. And  — lets face it — having to go buy native network tokens just to pay gas fees for a simple transaction…isn't fun. So, for networks that have ultra low transfer fees (gas) that we consider to be "marginal," Calaxy will automatically cover the network fees for as long as the economics make sense to do so. (Examples of networks with ultra low transfer fees include Hedera, Polygon, and Flow blockchains.)

Where can I learn more?

Calaxy will be publishing a lot more details on this feature and full network support rollout on calaxy.com soon. Hop on our mailing list below to be notified of these updates. For complete details on how to send crypto and NFTs through Calaxy Messenger, visit our help articles.
