TBH, there should be no reasons needed to gift someone. While Birthdays, Anniversaries, Success Celebrations, Friendship Day, Raksha Bandhan, Festivals, and more are the most ideal and commonly heard instances, I believe that just the thought of acknowledging someone’s role in your life can be a sufficient and valid occasion to send gifts.
On this note, tell me, have you ever googled ‘best gifts for friendship day’ or ‘useful gifts to give sister on raksha bandhan’ or ‘what to gift my wife for anniversary’? If yes, you now have an easy-to-do, pocket-friendly suggestion in bold! Gift Crypto!
On this note, we at WazirX are super elated to launch your most requested feature, ‘Crypto Gift Card’. With this feature in less than a minute, you can send WRX crypto gifts directly to your family, friends, colleagues, partner, or anyone with just a few clicks and swipes.
Hint: Raksha Bandhan is round the corner. Why not invest in your sister’s future this year? On the flip side, let’s break the bias and present the future to our brothers.
How can you use the ‘Crypto Gift Card’ feature on WazirX? How to Send a Crypto Gift Card?
To make crypto gifting easier for you, we have updated our apps to support this feature. Please update your WazirX mobile app to experience this new way of gifting!
The process of creating and sending the crypto gift card is simple:
Step 1: On your WazirX Mobile app, go to ‘Account Settings’ and click on ‘Gift Crypto’.
Step 2: This is the Gift Dashboard. Click on ‘SEND A GIFT ’. On this screen, you can also navigate to see your ‘Received’ and ‘Sent’ gifts.

Step 4: Enter the quantity of WRX tokens you would like to gift. This WRX will be deducted from your WazirX wallet. In case you do not have sufficient WRX tokens in your wallet, you will have to buy them first. For ease of use, the INR equivalent of the WRX you are gifting will be automatically calculated and shown.
Step 5: Enter the email address of the person you wish to send the gift to. It is advisable to enter their WazirX registered email address so that they can claim the gift immediately. In case you are adding an email address that is not registered on WazirX, we will email the receiver that you have sent them a crypto gift card. They will have to first register on WazirX and then claim the gift.
You can also add a personalized message for the receiver at this step. This is optional. Once you are done, click on ‘NEXT’.
