Read on to find out about the new features in this release.
We’ve been hinting at it for a while, but we are so excited to unveil our integration with Terra in this release. As the 4th largest blockchain ecosystem by total value locked (TVL), we believe Terra is central to XDEFI Wallet’s future.
Terra is a programmable Layer 1 blockchain protocol that offers a suite of algorithmic fiat-pegged stablecoins. Terra’s native $LUNA token absorbs the short-term volatility of Terra’s stablecoins. Over 60 projects are ready to launch on Terra in the next 6 to 8 weeks and over 100 have recently stated plans to launch by early 2022.
As Émile Dubié, our CEO and co-founder, said: “I believe that $UST serves a unique purpose as a decentralized stablecoin and will become a key component of the crypto ecosystem. Terra’s killer app is its accessible and UX-focused environment that caters for wider web3 adoption. It is truly exciting to see how Terra has developed as a Layer 1 and to see projects flourishing around $UST.”
The first version of Terra support contains the following features:
- Terra stablecoins: display, send and receive
- CW20 tokens: display, send, and receive
- Interaction with dApps
- Terra Ledger integration
NFTs support will be added in the next update.

Pylon Liquidity Program
We’re also proud to announce that we will be working with Pylon to set up a liquidity program on Terra. Pylon is a suite of DeFi savings and payments products powered by user deposits that build on stable yield-bearing protocols such as Terra’s Anchor Protocol. Pylon enables sustainable exchanges between long-term value providers and their consumers through customisable deposit contracts and yield redirection.
As part of our commitment to the Terra ecosystem, half of the funds that will be raised via Pylon will be used to fund early-stage projects within the Terra ecosystem. The Terra community will be able to input on how the funds should be allocated.
We’re proud to announce the whitelisting process is now closed, having reached our cap in about an hour.
If you have completed the whitelisting process through XDEFI Wallet, you can check that you were correctly whitelisted by searching for your address in our whitelisting verification tool.
As of 5 November 2021, there are no more XDEFI Wallet, DegenScore or THORChads slots still available.
Bug fixes and performance enhancements
We’ve also fixed a number of bugs in this release, including fixing the bep2 display issue and some Ledger issues. As always, if you run into any bugs or issues, please do let us know via our Discord and we’ll look into it right away.
