Earning and Spending

Axe is designed from the ground up to function as digital cash. This documentation discusses how and where Axe users can manage all of their personal finances using Axe.

Earning

A range of services and businesses are available to convert your wage to and from Axe as you receive it. It is of course easiest to receive payment from your employer in Axe directly, however this may not always be an option. Uphold allows you to instantly and automatically convert any received deposits to and from Axe. Building on this functionality, Bitwage allows you to invoice and receive payment from any employer, practically anywhere in the world, and have a percentage of your wage immediately converted to Axe. You can then withdraw your wage to any Axe wallet for spending or saving. For more information, see the following blog posts:

The Axe is either exchanged at the time of purchase or in advance. For an overview and review of all available and upcoming cards, including cards funded by the Axe budget system, see this article on Axe Force News.

The rapidly evolving approach to regulation of cryptocurrencies such as Axe and instant exchange solutions such as ShapeShift means that availability of debit cards cannot be guaranteed in any or all jurisdictions.
