Benefits of Crypto-to-Fiat: SXP payments and Mass Adoption

July 15, 2021 by Walt

The crypto industry is advancing rapidly and every year new technologies emerge which seek to solve and improve various aspects of the current finance system. Nevertheless, everyone would agree that the supply substantially outgrows the demand. In other words, while there are numerous blockchains, people, in general, seem reluctant to use them. As a result, certain projects begin to offer products that can facilitate the process of mass adoption of cryptocurrencies and establish a bridge between the legacy and crypto finance.

Swipe is one of such platforms since it features cryptocurrency exchange cards and enables decentralized finance products powered by its utility token SXP. NOWPayments can help organizations to accept Swipe SXP, deploy a crypto-to-fiat gateway, and ultimately make crypto payments a part of your business model.

SXP crypto is the utility token of the Swipe Network which performs a host of vital functions. First of all, SXP serves as the primary means of exchange in the ecosystem by powering all operations on the network. Holders of SXP tokens can participate in the governance of the network and make their contributions to the development of the platform in the future through voting.

Yet, the main function of SXP tokens is staking. Users can bond their SXP tokens to smart contracts in order to maintain the conversion rates for crypto-to-fiat transactions. SXP tokens act as bond in the network to guarantee that all users’ conversions go through. In return for their staking activity, users can claim their share of the daily Network Rewards. Currently, the sum of the rewards equals 20,000 SXP a day. Thus, the SXP token also presents its holders with opportunities to earn more coins.

SXP Cards

SXP cards have undergone several revisions and currently, there are two variants available to clients. Swipe users can choose either Standard or Premium cards. When customers get a card, Swipe managers help them to settle all the regulatory issues and KYC procedures making the experience as seamless as possible.

How to Accept SXP but Receive Fiat

Convert Crypto to Fiat: Benefits

As mentioned earlier, the general public is slow on adopting cryptocurrencies. Despite all of their advantages such as anonymity, low transaction fees, and speed, people still prefer fiat currencies. One of the main concerns about cryptocurrencies is that they tend to fluctuate radically in price. People also avoid using cryptocurrencies because they have been utilizing fiat all their life. Thus, one of the solutions to the problem of the slow adoption rate is an automatic conversion from crypto to fiat.

Essentially, using this feature, businesses can take advantage of all the benefits of crypto payments and then turn their crypto profits into dollars or euros. Apart from the aforementioned benefits of crypto payments, the community of investors and enthusiasts is perhaps the main asset the industry has to offer. Companies can seize new opportunities and get their share of the crypto market by featuring cryptocurrency as a payment method.
