TenX's announcement follows a string of delays and negative media coverage around its crypto debit card and president. The debit card was delayed for over 11 months after the card issuer, Wavecrest, was cut off from Visa. TenX's president, Julian Hosp, also found himself in hot waters after Breaker published a piece connecting him with Lyoness, an Austrian discount-shopping service that has been found to be an illegal pyramid scheme.

The price of PAY tokens is up over 34% in response to the airdrop news, according to data from CoinMarketCap. (Source: TenX)
