TEL AVIV, Israel, February 14th – Leading fiat infrastructure provider Simplex has expanded its fiat on-ramp, permitting customers to pay with a host of national fiat currencies. In parallel, cryptocurrency exchange Binance has announced support for all new currencies through its partnership with Simplex. As a result, more Binance users than ever will be able to acquire cryptocurrency using their native fiat currency.
In addition to accepting credit and debit card payments directly with EUR, USD, JPY and CAD, the Simplex platform will now support 15 new currencies for instant fiat-to-crypto conversion. These are GBP, KRW, RUB, AUD, CHF, CZK, DKK, NOK, NZD, PLN, SEK, TRY, ZAR, HUF, and ILS.

Simplex has been at the forefront of the industry trend towards constructing crypto on-ramps, wherein exchanges and applications connect their payment rails with those of the fiat world. With the help of Simplex, crypto platforms make it easier for users to buy, sell, store and deposit bitcoin and other popular cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), and Ripple (XRP).
