Despite the biggest declines in six months, Israeli-based fintech & cryptocurrency firm Simplex now supports two new fiat currencies – JPY & CAD. With this move, the Binance’s partner now allows its users to buy crypto with a credit card using the Japanese Yen and the Canadian Dollar. However, not all Simplex’s partner exchanges will receive the by-default support.
What did the Cryptocurrency Firm Simplex Confirm the Media?
Upon asking, the spokesperson from Simplex confirms the report that only the company’s partners can now allow their users to buy crypto using JPY and CAD on their credit card. But the representative fails to specify what companies will be the first to enable the feature.
