УFlip represents an exciting expansion of the FitPay Payment Platform by connecting cryptocurrencies to the payment ecosystem,Ф said Michael Orlando, COO of NXT-ID and President of Fit Pay, Inc. УWe founded Fit Pay to fundamentally change the payment experience, and making contactless payments with cryptocurrency is a big step toward that goal.Ф
FlipТs near field communication (NFC) antenna allows 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 userТs 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. Flip does not need to be charged. Initially, Flip will accept value exchanged from Bitcoin and will potentially expand to other cryptocurrencies in the future.
УFlipТs coin-shaped form factor and distinctive coloring are definitely attention grabbing,Ф said Orlando. УEarly adopters who are already into Bitcoin, can now pre-order Flip and be among the first to make a contactless payment with their cryptocurrency.Ф
УNXT-IDТs expansion into the cryptocurrency space is a natural extension of our leading edge fintech capabilities,Ф said Gino Pereira, CEO of NXT-ID. УIn addition to helping make crypto currencies more usable on a daily basis we are also pursuing applications for blockchain technology in our core payment and healthcare businesses.Ф
Consumers interested in purchasing Flip can pre-order the device at FliptoPay.com. The retail price for Flip is $29 with standard shipping included. There are account and exchange fees associated with maintaining a Flip digit wallet. Initial deliveries expected in the second quarter of 2018. Customers will only be charged when the product is shipped to them. Flip is currently only available in the United States. For more information, visit FliptoPay.com.
