Proposal Description

Swyype is a decentralized system created to provide easy liquidation of crypto assets to fiat through physical and virtual payment cards. Swyype operates as a card-to-cash settlement platform that gives users the ability to withdraw USDT (and other stable coins) in Naira through ATMs and POS machines with a virtual and physical card.

To offer our product at a value Swyype offers the following product in our platform;

  1. A decentralized, non-custodial wallet to store users funds; this wallet is in full security measures by users as Swyype doesn’t access funds in the user’s wallet.

  2. Swyype Card: The Swyype card can be obtained in two forms for different purposes. We are providing both the physical and virtual cards.

The swipe physical card would be offered by our physical banking agent to issue a physical card to our users to enable them to perform physical transactions with it via ATMs and point-of-sale devices.

The Swyype Virtual Card would be issued by our partner agent to users. Our users can use the virtual card to perform online transactions internationally.

Awesome project let’s go, this will improve the future of finance


I love what I have read but I have a question on the card aspect.

  1. Is there any plans for swipe to be used as a means of payment USD to be specific.
  2. And will you guys offer dollar cards, mostly for online payment.

Awesomeness is all I see.


This is awesome… I can’t wait… Kudos!!


Hi, thanks for the questions.

Well If you had been part of our community there are answers provided to this question, but for clarity sake;

  1. Yes we would over our virtual card to make international transactions in USD.
  2. The Swyype physical card is going to be used for payment only in local currency: as Nigerian been our primary launch location, we would offer physical card to execute NGN payment.

Read more about it on Our Product - Swyype

Hope I was able to answer your question @Chymuul

@defiAll @marcosd @Artanovskaya


This is an awesome product

Kudos to the entire team👏

Looking forward to the launch :rocket:


Great innovation. Let’s build

I’d love to hear more about the security measures you have on ground. But overall, I like this. Nigerians are one of the highest traders of cryptocurrency in the world. Swyype is a great idea.

Hi @Joan thanks for bringing this question up, and I guess I would have to talk more on security on our documentation

We’re working around a non custodial wallet system.
Eradicating the need to keep users’ private keys in encrypted databases which can be exploited.

Our mobile app security would features include:
1.Biometrics, pin, Fingerprint and face unlock login access
2. Encrypted data base
3. Infrastructure security and more


This is a good project, especially as it targets Nigerians and Africans at large.

With @DivinegiftSWYYPE response on security, I believe that when implemented, Swyppe will go a long way to expand crypto adoption in Nigeria because as a result of the recent cash drama, many people are beginning to adopt technology faster than anticipated.

I think Swyppe is coming on at a good time. Kudos to the team. :+1:t4:
