With this goal in mind, Tangem will add Changelly — a hybrid cryptocurrency exchange platform — as a swap provider to Tangem Express this February. Users will be able to swap any asset via Changelly at a 0% service fee rate from February 14 to February 21, 2024. What else is in stock for you? Let’s find out in this article.
