Flexa Adds Support For ADA

Payment company Flexa recently announced that as part of its “25 Days of Flexa” campaign, it has decided to launch support for ADA, the native token of the Cardano network, meaning that ADA can now be used to make payments at over 40,000 locations in the U.S.

Flexa claims to “provide merchants and developers with simple integrations for digital currency acceptance that are fast, affordable, and completely fraud-proof.” It says that it is “the first network to offer transactions that are 100% digitally secured from source to settlement” and that “unlike a traditional bank or payment card transaction, Flexa payments don’t involve sending any sensitive customer account information through the network.” 

Rather, each Flexa transaction starts and ends with a unique, digital authorization code that can’t be decrypted or reversed.” Since Flexa integrates directly with merchants’ existing payment hardware and software stack, there’s no need “to purchase any additional equipment.”

Earlier, Regal, “a subsidiary of Cineworld Group and the operator of one of the largest and most geographically diverse theatre circuits in the United States,” announced that it had “partnered with Flexa. Trevor Filter, the co-founder of Flexa, added:

Flexa is committed to helping merchants enable easier, faster, and safer payment options for their customers, and that’s just one of the reasons we’re incredibly proud to work with Regal, whose dedication to creating an enjoyable and widely accessible cinematic experience for their loyal patrons is second to none."

Cardano Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels 

Looking at the Cardano price chart, we see that ADA has recovered during the current session. If the current sentiment persists, we could see ADA test the resistance at $1.28. However, we could also see ADA drop marginally and settle at around $1.25.
