PLDT Hong Kong has partnered with DENT Wireless to commercially launch a new blockchain-based mobile data trading service in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong's Dent Wireless is an ethereum mobile data exchange where anyone can buy, sell, or donate mobile data using the company’s Dent token as global currency

With this service PLDT HK customers are able to trade unused mobile data with other PLDT HK customers using the marketplace in the DENT app. The service is powered by blockchain technology and utilises the DENT token as the currency for trading.  

PLDT HK customers who sell their unused mobile data and receive DENT tokens can then use these to top-up themselves or others (‘gifting’) in Hong Kong, Philippines and 45 other countries around the world via the DENT app. In addition, to get even more DENTs, PLDT HK customers may buy DENTs in the app using their PLDT HK prepaid credit.

Joel Lumanian, GM, PLDT HK
To maximize the benefits of mobile data trading, our customers can use the tokens they earn to buy prepaid load for themselves or for their families and friends. Our customers can also buy and send Smart, Sun, and TNT top-ups to the Philippines and Free Bee credits for their own use via the Dent app.

Tero Katajainen, CEO of DENT Wireless
Through the direct carrier billing facility, PLDT HK customers can buy more DENT tokens using the prepaid credits. We see the mobile trading service as a new innovation to keep customers engaged and acquire new users.
