- Users of Beaxy can now purchase Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) using their credit and debit cards courtesy of Simplex.
- The addition of this fiat bridge will increase the visibility of the exchange as well as benefit BXY in the long run.
As much as we want to be pro-cryptocurrency and anti-fiat during these trying times in the stock markets, bridging between the two forms of payment is essential for crypto adoption. The financial world as we know it still functions in the form of fiat currencies such as the USD or the EURO. We are yet to get to that stage where transactions are denominated in Satoshis or where we refer to the value of Beaxy (BXY) as 132 Satoshis.
Beaxy Collaborates with Simplex to Bring Card Purchases
In a medium blog post earlier today, the team at Beaxy let the trading community know that they had teamed up with Simplex. This collaboration will allow for crypto enthusiasts to purchase Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum using their credit and debit cards. Beaxy’s co-president, Nick Murphy, elaborated on how the new service will benefit users.
Credit and debit card purchases powered by Simplex provide users a new and efficient way to add money to the crypto market. This convenience drives access and adoption of cryptocurrencies for larger groups of potential users around the world. The more bridges we can build between legacy systems and the crypto market, the better.
