Simplex’s purchase options offer a new fiat on ramp for individuals that want to invest in cryptocurrencies, which will in turn drive mass adoption.
The payment processor uses artificial intelligence (AI) technology to analyse every transaction using proprietary, fully automated, machine-learning algorithms that eliminate fraud, while increasing conversion.
“Simplex gives anyone, anywhere, the ability to buy crypto securely and easily”, said Nimrod Lehavi, Simplex CEO and founder. “We’re excited to partner with NEM Group to give millions of people access to XEM, through our network of trusted partners.”
