Zipmex Token (ZMT)

Zipmex Token (ZMT) is a ERC-20 traded digital asset native to Zipmex. ZMT has multiple benefits and use cases such as higher rates on earnings accounts, discounts and more!


  • Enjoy up to 50% discount on trading fees by locking Zipmex Token.
  • Earn extra interest on ZipUp and ZipLock

Z Wallet

Zipmex splits user assets into two wallets:

  • Trade wallet: for crypto asset trading use
  • Z Wallet: for receiving bonuses, earning new digital assets, and much more including access to exclusive products and services. Z Wallet is further broken down into ZipUp+, ZipLock and ZLaunch.


ZipUp+ is a flexi-earnings accounts that pays interest daily and has no minimum deposit. Withdraw and deposit any amount, any time. This gives investors the flexibility to manoeuvre funds anytime. Investors can earn up to 10% APY on ZipUp+.


ZipLock is like a fixed deposit account for which allows you to earn up to 12% interest p.a on locked ZMT tokens. You can lock up any amount (no minimum) of ZMT tokens any time. But each time you do so, it is locked up for 45 days and you canโ€™t withdraw the amount that youโ€™ve locked up.

Locking up ZMT tokens allows investors to advance to various VIP membership tiers and enjoy benefits like trading fee discounts and higher interest on ZipUp+ assets.

After the lock up period elapses and your tokens are released, you have to initiate lock up again if you desired so. There is currently no setting to automatically lock again.


ZLaunch is a platform that connects Zipmex users to the latest token projects. You will have the opportunity to use your ZMT to earn new token rewards.

The daily token rewards you will receive is proportional to the amount of ZMT that you lock and the total amount of ZMT locked by the community. While you earn token rewards, you are also fueling the growth of the token project that you supported through locking ZMT.

Yieldly (YLDY) is the first token project featured on ZLaunch!

A short video we made to demonstrate how to lock your ZMTs in ZLaunch:

What is the difference between ZipLock and ZLaunch?

When you lock ZMT in ZipLock, the lock period is fixed and your rewards are in ZMT.

When you lock ZMT in ZLaunch, the lock period is flexible and you will receive rewards in the form of tokens from the ZLaunch project you participated in.
