Swiss blockchain company, Jelurida, has announced a deeper strategic collaboration with Simplex, the market-leading fiat infrastructure for crypto onramps. As Jelurida develops and maintains the Nxt, Ignis, and Ardor blockchains, users can now buy these blockchain’s native currencies through Simplex’s platform. Partnerships like these make it much easier for users to access a huge range of cryptocurrencies via fiat money.
This partnership between Simplex and Jelurida confirms the mainstream appeal of cryptocurrencies. Users can now purchase NXT the native currency of the iconic first pure proof of stake blockchain Nxt and IGNIS the currency of the Ignis permissionless child chain of the Ardor multi-chain platform, through Jelurida’s website or Simplex’s partner network. As Jelurida agreed with Simplex to offer the same exposure to these currencies as the company does to Ardor and ARDR, an important milestone has been reached. Strengthening this partnership confirms that Jelurida wants to encourage new implementations through the Nxt, Ardor, and Ignis blockchains.
Founded in 2017 in Switzerland, Jelurida wants to build and maintain different blockchains tailored to specific needs. Its involvement in Ardor and Nxt is well-known, and Ignis proves to be another crucial flagship project. Ignis is a main child chain of Ardor with over 20 built-in features to accommodate many use cases including, arguably, the simplest method for registering NFT tokens using a combination of the singleton asset and cloud data features.
To tap into new commercial use for Nxt, Ardor, and Ignis, Jelurida positions itself as a catalyst for startups, organizations, and others to incorporate blockchain technology. Anyone can license the company’s technology for a private blockchain implementation or create a custom child chain on Ardor similar to Ignis. There are countless options to explore and experiment with.
Ari Last, VP of Business Development at Simplex, said:
“We’re excited to work with Jelurida to support the growing demand of seamless, worldwide access to cryptocurrencies, and to continue enabling our secure onramp solution for anyone, anywhere”.
A principal member of the Visa network, Simplex works alongside leading digital asset exchanges, wallets, and brokers to grow crypto on/off ramps and democratize access to cryptocurrencies for all users worldwide. The EU-licensed fintech also recently launched Simplex Banking, a product that allows its partner network to enable users to buy crypto with a range of local and global payment methods, and convert these funds to fiat, which they can withdraw for daily use.
Adding IGNIS and NXT to Simplex’s growing list of conveniently accessible cryptocurrencies helps lower entry barriers to this industry. As Jelurida now has all three of its main ecosystems supported by Simplex, the entire world can begin experimenting with these technologies and the native assets of each platform.
Lior Yaffe, Co-founder of Jelurida, said:
“The ability to buy tokens using a credit card is an important component for any blockchain-based casual gaming platform such as our Bridge Champ flagship project. The Simplex solution also provides many useful benefits for our partners and projects building on Ignis and Nxt”.
