Happy Chinese New Year from the Nano Foundation

Forest Horsman

Chinese New Year is a time for family, celebration, and gift-giving. Celebrated on the 22nd of January, this Lunar New Year is filled with many traditions such as fireworks, decorating, wearing red clothes and being with family.

One of the most beloved traditions during this holiday is the exchange of red envelopes, or "hongbao," between elders and the young. These envelopes are filled with money, and are said to bring good luck and prosperity for the year ahead. It’s actually one of the largest money transfers in the world - happening every year!

In the digital age, we are seeing more and more people turn to digital money as a way to give and receive gifts. And nano is the perfect choice to combine with the red envelope tradition.

Nano can be sent around the world, without fees, in a fraction of a second, making it a fun and innovative way to gift good luck and happiness to loved ones - no matter where they might be.

How to celebrate using nano

Below are four great ways to celebrate Chinese New Year with nano:
