First-to-market crypto offering in New Zealand enables a safe and convenient way to purchase crypto using debit and credit cards by joining forces with Simplex.
BitPrime, New Zealand’s leading cryptocurrency retailer, today announced it has partnered with Simplex, the market-leading, fiat/crypto infrastructure provider. The partnership provides a safe solution for those wishing to buy cryptocurrency using a credit card or debit card (Visa or Mastercard).
Available for the first time in New Zealand, the partnership takes advantage of Simplex’s fully protected, fraud-free platform for digital asset purchases and offers BitPrime customers yet another practical payment option to onramp to the crypto ecosystem.
The option to purchase crypto with a credit card has been one of the most highly requested features by current BitPrime customers over the company’s three-year history. The partnership with Simplex enables BitPrime users to easily onramp with a trusted partner that has an industry reputation for transparency and security.
The launch of this new payment solution comes as the price of Bitcoin reaches its highest since the all-time high of nearly 30,000 NZD in February 2017.
BitPrime has partnered with Simplex to utilize the company’s state-of-the-art AI technology that analyzes the risk of every payment and actively blocks fraudulent users. Simplex also provides all users with award-winning customer support, available 24/7, should they need help to complete their purchases.
Ross Carter-Brown, CEO of BitPrime, said,
“We’re taking cryptocurrency to the world. Our new credit card payment gateway allows us to service customers from 178 different countries. We know that New Zealand is a desirable jurisdiction to do business for many people, especially for financial services. That’s due to our strong personal property protections, political stability and low corruption. Our partnership with Simplex is a crucial piece of infrastructure that will help meet that demand.”
Nimrod Lehavi, Simplex founder and CEO, said,
”Simplex gives anyone, anywhere the ability to buy any digital assets easily and securely. Our partnership with BitPrime empowers millions to onramp conveniently using their bank cards.”
BitPrime allows customers to purchase as little as $100 worth of cryptocurrencies, and the newly launched payment solution also supports international customers.
