Flexacoin describes itself as a digital collateral token for facilitating instant cryptocurrency payments, originally developed to collateralize retail payments on the Flexa network. Flexacoin is designed to mitigate the friction between customers paying with crypto and merchants accepting fiat. Users scan a QR code at the point of sale, and the Flexa Network Protocol (FNP) trades the crypto spent for fiat which is then returned to the merchant.
Flexa returns a percentage of every processed transaction to users. Flexa’s FNP uses the ERC 20-compliant token called Flexacoin for transactions and a variety of members-only network incentives. The name “Flexa” is an abbreviation of flexibility, according to the team. Flexa requires no additional hardware at the point of sale and optimizes for seamless payment and receipt for the consumer and merchant.
