SPEDN is the simplest and easiest way to spend cryptocurrency in stores.
Unleash your electronic cash—instantly—with just one tap and no fees. Powered by Flexa, SPEDN makes it possible to spend Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies without needing to cash out to US dollars or load a plastic card. Instead, just take your phone into any store that accepts Flexa, tap the brand where you’d like to spend your cryptocurrency, and scan your unique flexcode for payment.
Tap the coin you want to load into the SPEDN app, and then reveal a unique deposit address in order to easily load the balance of your choice from any other cryptocurrency exchange service.
When you’re ready to spend, just open SPEDN, tap the name of the Flexa-accepting store where you’d like to use your cryptocurrency, and reveal your flexcode for instant payment at point-of-sale.
Finally, have your cashier scan the dynamic flexcode that appears on screen. In seconds, your cryptocurrency balance is converted into dollars, covering all or part of your purchase, and your transaction is complete.
SPEDN currently supports Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and the Gemini dollar (GUSD), with many more coins coming soon.
• Over the last few weeks, we’ve been advancing thousands of people off the waiting list. For those of you still waiting to get access to Flexa, we’ve added better explanations for why certain features might not yet be available. And, you can now redeem an invite code after you've registered with Flexa, which should make the activation process a lot simpler.
• If you have access to Flexa already, we’ve added more context in the list of places to pay to give you a better idea of spending power requirements and temporary outages.
• The settings sheet has been redesigned with more details about the account you’re currently using.
• Fixed: Flexcodes and deposit addresses should both generate more reliably.
• Fixed: Deposits with many decimal places were making the History tab difficult to read, so we abbreviated long deposit amounts.
• Fixed: The deposit button wasn't appearing in certain cases, especially without an invite. You should now see the deposit button regardless of your progress through the app.
Ratings and Reviews
Great App Seamless Integration with Crypto
There are apps out there that allow users to spend their crypto. But the difficulties were always at the interaction with the merchants. This app really makes it truly seamless from the merchants point of view. They just process the transaction like they would an Apple Pay payment. Great work!
I’ve been waiting for something serious like this for a long time. Their partnership with Gemini is a great achievement. People will be able to spend their crypto in major retailers like Starbucks, Whole Foods, etc. I am so excited to this huge coming adoption. World is changing with blockchain and cryptocurrencies. Congrats Gemini and Flexa !
Cryptocurrency is money!
This is a great app. I have already spent it on a variety of purchases. Question though ... am I allowed to only spend at certain stores?
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
