But why is the NEO price rising? NEO is today the fourth largest gainer among the top 100 cryptocurrencies by market cap.
Reason for today’s NEO price surge
The main reason behind today’s NEO price surge is believed to be the recent partnership that Neo entered into with Alchemy Pay, as announced on May 18, for easy on-and off-ramping to the Neo Ecosystem.
Neo is a leading open-source community-driven blockchain platform and the partnership will allow Neo users from across the globe to be able to purchase cryptocurrencies using their preferred local fiat currencies.
Developers building on Neo will also benefit from Alchemy Pay’s direct-to-customer plugin, which can be easily integrated and deployed on dApps and platforms with minimal hassle and cost.
Alchemy Pay’s payment gateway
The Alchemy Pay payment gateway allows users to make payments using Visa Inc.’s (NYSE:V), Mastercard (NYSE: MA), Diners Club, and Discover across 173 countries, along with mobile wallets and domestic transfers in developing markets.
Alchemy Pay’s user-friendly low fees, exceptional conversion rates, and KYC process make buying and selling cryptocurrencies with local currencies as expedient as any online payment system. Its extensive network has more than 300 fiat payment channels, permitting checkouts beyond card payments into local mobile wallet options.
Alchemy Pay has previously partnered with Neo to incorporate NEO token into Alchemy Pay’s global crypto-fiat gateways. Also, both Neo and Alchemy Pay are members of the Blockchain Infrastructure Alliance as founding members.
