Alchemy Pay teams up with Mastercard for ‘NFT Checkout’
The partnership will enable direct fiat payment for NFT purchases - improving convenience and NFT market accessibility.
Alchemy Pay has partnered with Mastercard to bring “NFT Checkout” – a direct payment method for digital artwork.
The company intends the integration to improve accessibility to the NFT market, revolutionizing how users interact with digital artwork.
A Medium post announcing the news stated that Mastercard has a presence in over 210 countries and a circulation of 1.554 billion debit cards – suggesting significant potential for NFT adoption.
Alchemy Pay said businesses could benefit through the ready-made solution. At the same time, users would have a convenient, mainstream way to purchase non-fungibles – particularly those who may not be crypto-savvy.
“This significantly reduces the obstacles associated with lengthy and inconvenient cryptocurrency purchases and transactions.”
As of press time, ACH’s seven-day performance saw a 10.2% gain. However, over the last 24 hours, the token fell 1.8% to $0.02966.
Nonetheless, at the current price, ACH is still 85.1% down from its $0.198666 all-time high, achieved on August 6, 2021.
