President and CEO of NXT-ID, Inc. (NASDAQ: $NXTD) Talks about New Flip NFC Device for Crytocurrency Consumers, Rollout of GarminPay and IoT Partnerships

Point Roberts, WA -  February 16, 2018 –, a leader in Blockchain content with its Bitcoin and Blockchain portals, and issues an exclusive podcast interview with Gino M. Pereira, the President and CEO of NXT-ID, Inc. (NASDAQ: NXTD).

Gino discusses the company’s overall business strategy, its subsidiaries LogicMark, LLC and  Fit Pay, Inc. and how the company’s payment technology has evolved from the Wocket to flye and now Flip, its new contactless payment device created for the cryptocurrency market. (

NXT-ID Inc.’s upcoming Flip™ will enable customers to pay with bitcoin wherever near field communication (NFC) payment options are accepted, according to company President and CEO, Gino Pereira.

“Flip is a product under which we provide a crypto-wallet, that individuals can deposit bitcoin,” he said. “That bitcoin is converted into what is essentially a prepaid debit card, that is then available for use to spend as cash anywhere that accepts NFC payments.”

Flip, which will operate on NXT-ID’s FitPay platform, will initially only support bitcoin and the U.S. dollar. Pereira said the company plans to expand to other options after the rollout, however.

“For the rollout we accept bitcoin and the currency we accept is U.S. dollars,” he said. “We anticipate that that will widen as we go forward with our development but our initial offering is limited to U.S. currency and bitcoin.”

“We will be announcing the exact date a little later on but we anticipate taking pre-orders in February. We anticipate delivering the product before the end of the first half of this year.”

While acknowledging their current instability, Pereira said the technological ideas ushered in by cryptoassets have consolidated their place in the payment world.

“There’s obviously a lot of volatility and it’s very early on so there are a number of question marks over it,” he said, “but with the basic concept of blockchain and security, and as such cryptocurrencies, we believe they are here to stay as part of the overall payment ecosystem.”

“We desire to be a complete solution for customers, whether it’s regular currency or cryptocurrency and so we aim to provide them with capability to securely use all those methods of payment.”

Gino also shares recent developments with FitPay’s proprietary technology platform that adds contactless payment capabilities to wearable and IoT devices and the rollout of the Garmin vĂ­voactive 3 smartwatch powered by the FitPay Platform.

Additionally, Pereira said NXT-ID will be introducing more IoT partnerships.

“We have a number of other arrangements with IoT manufacturers which will probably be announced as they’re closer to launching their products,” he said. “We do have a good number of relationships in the pipeline.”
