But not for keeping balance in the wallet as the EVX rate is sinking. 

Price$ 0.32 24h-2.63%7d-22.26%30d-38.63%

 

Rate at everex and transferwise and evx price was on 27th of september at 4pm

I don't see much point in holding the EVX token other than speculating.  But it works well enough for cashing out USDC or DAI.  Of course it's better to keep those in a wallet you have the keys to.  I'm glad to have an easy option to go from crypto to THB, though it seems that their main focus is bank to bank.

As far as sending from your wallet to a bank in the States: I see they restrict users to residents of New Jersey at this time. Does that mean you can only send to a bank there or does it matter?

I got a response from customer service regarding this. They said if I'm a US citizen, I must live in New Jersey or I can't use their app. The bank can be anywhere in the States. I thought I saw somewhere that I could be a resident of Thailand and be a user. I'm trying now to double check on this with them.

I been doing through transwerwise...where its higher rate than in Thai bank foreign exchange rate. 

The effective rate of TransferWise is much lower(at least for US dollar, I didn't check other currencies)  Right now they show a rate of 30.3950.  But on a 1,000 dollar transfer the effective rate is 30.0676  For a 50,000 transfer the effective rate is a little better 30.1911.

 

In fact for a 30,000 baht transfer you are better off getting the money from an ATM if you have a bank that does not charge foriegn transactions fees.  And an even bigger difference if your bank also refunds any ATM charges, as in basically free of charges.

 

This year I transferred 150K to my SCB account by wire transfer.  It cost me a little over $700 including the wire fee and the exchange difference (at the time rate was 30.57 SCB gave me 30.44).  To do the same with TransferWise I would have had to do 3 separate transfers (they limit transfers to 2 million baht) and the total fees from them would have been a little over $1,000.  So I saved about $300 wiring the money the traditional way compared to TransferWise.

all these "this and that" how about bringing enough money when you come...deposit it into a thai bank...use the thia card at the appropriate ATM and pay nothing.  Whats so hard about that.

sounds dodgy when I hear words like electronic wallet.  Bitcoin virtual money type of thing?  Any insurance or legislation governing this thing?

They don't even use bitcoin.

There is a reason why people use electronic transfer. If you can tell me how to get all my future income for the next 60 years in 1 lump sum then I will gladly deposit it in a Thai bank.

On another note, I did use them 4-5 times and it's super fast (~3 hours) and cheap. Remind me of bx.in.th in the beginning. I wonder if it's the same owner.

Received Baht at a rate of approx 29.63 THB/DAI.  Not too bad, considering the THB/USD rate was at quite low that day (30.45 THB/USD). 

 

So what rate do you get on that day inputting USD?

Today I got 30.53.

 

XE.com say it should be 30.38 so pretty good.

why is it that all these money transfer ads promote sending money into Thailand but cannot send money out of Thailand. I have never seen an ad promoting  money transfer out of Thailand. What am I missing here ????

Actually as of now, the service is very limited, as I mentioned above, in the US you need to be a resident of NJ. I am a long time resident of Thailand, and I do have a need to send money out, but the options in general are very limited. I have figured out a way other than direct wires from Thai banks, but it's convoluted and who knows how long it will continue. Kasikorn has a K+ app that has an international transfer option. I've tried to use it a few times, but it never works. Support only tells me to try it again, smh. I don't like going into the bank for transfers because they make me feel uncomfortable, and anyway I think the rates are not great.
