It has been analyzed that a spokesperson of Simplex confirmed the report by noting that the company’s partners are now able to allow their users to buy crypto using CAD or JPY on their credit card. However, the representative has not specified what companies would be first to enable the feature.
In conjunction with new currencies’ addition, Simplex has also announced a new partnership with OKEx, the major cryptocurrency exchange.

Moreover, Nimrod Lehavi, the CEO and Founder of Simplex, reportedly revealed the company’s plans to add Russian rubles and Turkish lira support “very soon.”
Lehavi claimed that Japan and Canada are not only two of the top markets for crypto but also “among the top 10 territories for credit card usage globally.”
As it has been previously reported, Simplex is a European Union-licensed financial institution and payments processing provider. With offices in Israel, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Lithuania, the company provides “fraud-free” payment processing services to companies including Shapeshift, the Litecoin Foundation, Xapo, and Changelly.
According to the report, Simplex supported three fiat currencies before adding CAD and JPY: the U.S. dollar, Euro and the British pound. Alongside Binance, other partner exchanges include OKCoin, KuCoin, Huobi, and Poloniex, among others.
