MELBOURNE, Florida, February 8, 2018 – (Investorideas.com Newswire) Fit Pay, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of NXT-ID, Inc. (NASDAQ: NXTD), today announced FlipTM, a new contactless payment device that will enable cryptocurrency holders to use the value of their currency to make purchases at millions of retail locations. The launch of the new device follows a December 2017 announcement by Fit Pay that it is expanding its platform to connect cryptocurrencies to the payment ecosystem.

“Flip is a very convenient way to use cryptocurrency value to make retail transactions,” said Michael Orlando, COO of NXT-ID and President of Fit Pay, Inc. “Not only does it seamlessly exchange cryptocurrency into dollars, it’s contactless, giving users a simple tap-to-pay experience.”

Flip will be near field communication-enabled (NFC) allowing it to transact payments at any retail point of sale location that accepts contactless payments. Flip will store a preloaded amount of U.S. dollars that are exchanged from the user’s existing cryptocurrency account. It includes a digital wallet that allows the user to set how much value they would like their Flip to hold and when they would like it to reload. Initially, Flip will accept value exchanged from Bitcoin and will potentially expand to other cryptocurrencies in the future.

“When we announced that we were extending the FitPay Platform to cryptocurrencies, our goal was leverage our existing technology to connect cryptocurrencies to the payment ecosystem,” said Orlando. “That’s exactly what Flip achieves. And it continues to expand our offerings, furthering our mission to fundamentally change the way people pay.”

Consumers interested in Flip can add their email address to the Flip interest list at FliptoPay.com. Pre-orders for Flip on FliptoPay.com will begin in February 2018 on a date to be announced, with initial deliveries expected in the second quarter of 2018. Flip is currently only available in the United States. For more information, visit FliptoPay.com.

FitPay and Cascade Financial Technology Corp (Cascade FinTech) recently announced an agreement for the joint development of the platform that will be used to enable Flip, giving cryptocurrency holders the ability to use the value exchanged from cryptocurrency to be used for traditional payment transactions. The agreement is an expansion of an existing relationship between the two companies to provide prepaid capabilities on wearable and Internet of Things (IoT) devices connected to the FitPay Payment Platform. The prepaid, or GPR, option gives consumers with FitPay's contactless payment-enabled devices the convenience of storing funds directly on their device. Under the previous agreement, the FitPay Platform connects to the Cascade CloudTM to enable contactless payment GPR devices in a variety of form factors.
