Nuvei Partners with Ledger to Offer Direct Crypto On-Ramp for Millions of Users
MONTREAL, March 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nuvei Corporation (“Nuvei” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: NVEI) (TSX: NVEI), announces today that it has partnered with Ledger, the leading hardware wallet provider, to enable direct on-ramps for 125+ cryptocurrencies with all the leading fiat funding options via its Simplex by Nuvei solution. Through Ledger Live, Ledger users will be able to purchase cryptocurrencies through Visa, Mastercard, SEPA, SWIFT and over 100 other fiat funding options for various global currencies.
The integration enables Ledger users to seamlessly purchase cryptocurrencies without having to go through external exchanges and fiat-to-cryptocurrency payment gateways. This is key to maximizing security and ease of use for hardware wallet users, as it skips the additional steps of interacting with exchanges and temporarily abandoning the security of the device.
Integrating with Nuvei’s platform vastly expands the range of available funding and purchase options for Ledger users, who can now choose against a list of the most widespread combinations of local currencies and digital assets. Simplex by Nuvei guarantees protection against chargebacks, fraud and other inconveniences of servicing cryptocurrency purchases, while Ledger can focus on acquiring additional users and providing value for Ledger and Ledger Live users.
