MONTREAL, Jan. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nuvei Corporation (“Nuvei” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: NVEI) (TSX: NVEI) the global payment technology partner of thriving brands, has announced it has integrated with Flow, a Web3 platform designed for consumer-friendly blockchain applications. This is a significant milestone in accessible NFT purchasing and unique stablecoin processing on the blockchain, enabling a frictionless checkout experience, powered by Nuvei, for dapps built on Flow.
Flow’s next-generation, environmentally-friendly blockchain allows developers to build crypto- and crypto-enabled businesses, and users to create digital assets tradable on open markets. Nuvei brings an innovative and agile processing partner for those building on Flow by allowing users to pay with FUSD, the most prominent USD-based stablecoin on Flow.
According to the latest figures by Cointelegraph Research, 35% of all NFT traders are now on the Flow blockchain. Nuvei’s single-integration network provides Flow developers and marketplace customers seamless NFT purchase processing with FUSD via fiat. It offers greater access for NFT platforms and the ability to target a wider consumer audience: those looking for a fast and straightforward way to purchase in fiat.
“We’re delighted to be integrated with Flow—it’s exciting to see that its network is increasingly becoming the blockchain of choice for NFT traders,” said Philip Fayer, Nuvei’s Chair and CEO. “Now, thanks to our new integration, this increasing number of NFT platforms can offer their customers the ability to purchase FUSD with fiat quickly and seamlessly.”
“Nuvei brings a great payment experience option for both consumers and developers on Flow,” said Mickey Maher, SVP of Partnerships at Dapper Labs. “We’re thrilled to have them join the growing ecosystem and play a crucial part in further enabling mainstream adoption of Web3.”
The integration further positions Nuvei as the leading payment partner in the cryptocurrency and digital currency space. Flow, meanwhile, will leverage Nuvei’s bespoke fraud prevention and risk management tools backed by proven artificial intelligence technology, resulting in higher conversion rates and better liquidity, simplifying instant fiat purchases for cryptocurrencies, NFTs and decentralized finance providers.
