Mercuryo, a leading crypto payments company, has announced its integration with renowned cryptocurrency derivatives exchange BitMEX.

The partnership will enable BitMEX users to make faster and more secure fiat-to-crypto purchases. It’s an integration that means 21 more fiat currencies can be used to purchase Bitcoin, Ether, and Tether (ERC-20) on BitMEX. The exchange’s new supported currencies include AED, ARS, QAR, THB, UAH, and ZAR.

BitMEX users can buy crypto via Mercuryo with a range of payment options, including Visa and Mastercard credit and debit cards, Apple Pay, and Google Pay. The purchased crypto will be credited directly to the user’s wallet immediately after payment.

Mercuryo is a rapidly growing crypto-powered company that provides global access to fast and inexpensive payment infrastructures for the likes of 1inch, Trezor, and Trust Wallet. Its latest partnership with BitMEX follows their series A round of funding with global Investors Target A, raising a total of $7.5M.

Founded in 2014, BitMEX is one of the world's leading cryptocurrency derivatives exchanges with a fully verified user base and the creator of the Perpetual Swap.

Petr Kozyakov, CEO of Mercuryo, said:
“We’re delighted to be partnering with BitMEX. This partnership represents another milestone moment, in our mission to align fiat and crypto infrastructure for a seamless and enjoyable user experience.”

Alexander Höptner, CEO of BitMEX, said: “We’re always looking for new ways to enhance the accessibility of our platform at BitMEX, which is why we partnered with Mercuryo. Now, our users will be able to access a wider range of cryptocurrency purchase and conversion options. In the coming weeks, our users will be able to use fiat to buy a wider range of cryptocurrencies, so stay tuned.”

To celebrate the partnership, Mercuryo and BitMEX are currently running a 0% fee for all users buying cryptocurrency on BitMEX and paying via Mercuryo. The campaign runs until 14th April 2022 at 07:59am UTC.
