This is the first week that NEXGOers are back to work. The executives of NEXGO prepared the kick-off bonus for all the NEXGOers to symbolize good luck for the new year and get rid of the post-holiday syndrome.
The kick-off bonus is the red envelope with money in it for the first working day after Chinese New Year which means “Hope everything at work gets off to a good start!”. In Chinese cultures, a red envelope, red packet, or red pocket is a monetary gift given during the Chinese Spring Festival. Although the red envelope was popularised by Chinese traditions, other cultures also share similar traditional customs. The red packet is also called “money warding off old age” for Chinese New Year.
In the mid-2010s, a digital equivalent to the practice emerged within messaging apps with mobile wallet systems localized for the Chinese New Year. That shows more combination of innovative payment methods and traditional culture.
Good luck with NEXGO and all our partners in 2022!
