Executive Opinion

Cuy Sheffield, Senior Director and Head of Cryptocurrency at Visa, said, "For digital currencies to have utility as a medium of exchange, there needs to be convenient fiat on-ramps and off-ramps. We’re excited to work with leading fintechs like Simplex who are helping to enable simple, secure, and compliant conversions between crypto and fiat and the ability to spend these funds at Visa’s network of more than 60 million merchants."

Simplex CEO and founder, Nimrod Lehavi, said, "Visa has been a valued component of the Simplex solution since we began our journey seven years ago, enabling people throughout the world to easily purchase cryptocurrency using their Visa cards. Today, Simplex is provisionally approved for principal membership to the Visa network. Our vision is to help create a world in which all currencies are accessible, regardless of where you are. This collaboration is a huge leap forward to enabling the world to have true financial freedom."
