It uncovers detailed facts and compelling statistics on cryptocurrencies as a viable payment method in eCommerce.

This whitepaper deep dives into the current and future use cases of crypto, dispels the most common misconceptions of digital currencies, and explores which likely scenarios will tip crypto into mainstream usage.

“At Nuvei, we’re big believers in innovation to provide choice and convenience to consumers,” explains Philip Fayer, Nuvei's Chair and CEO. “In the last year, innovation around digital currencies has accelerated. With the rise of NFTs and stablecoins, regulatory, technological, and corporate adoption drivers are creating catalysts for accelerated crypto payments acceptance.”
