Startup Flexa expands cryptocurrency payments to Canada

Posted 15 August, 2019

Flexa, a New York-based payment blockchain-startup, has announced its entry into the international market. The company enters the Canadian market, exactly three months after the launch of cryptocurrency payments and the SPEDN application for iOS in the USA.

"We’re launching Flexa outside of the US for the first time ever, and making instant, in-store cryptocurrency payments available to residents of the Great White North—from Yukon to Nova Scotia and from Vancouver to St. John’s,"  the company stated in the press release.

Currently, Flexa is one of the fastest-growing payment systems in the United States that allows processing regular transactions in Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash and FlexaCoin coin. It works now on integration of Litecoin and Zcash into the payment system, and a beta version of the Android application has been released.

According to the company, the number of Canadian users will reach 7,500 by September. The Flexa payment system will become 100% operational beginning from September, allowing businessmen from the USA and Canada to pay with cryptocurrency in the largest retail and entertainment networks, as well as at gas stations while traveling to neighboring countries. At the same time, users do not spend additional funds on the conversion of the national currencies.

To enter Canada, Flexa cooperates with Coinsquare, the largest and safest Canadian cryptocurrency exchange as well as Gemini company.
