Dove Wallet, the global crypto wallet service of Seoul-based blockchain finance startup CHILDLY, is enabling its users to buy virtual currencies directly through credit cards.
The crypto wallet is enabling credit card purchases in USD and EUR for Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, as well as Litecoin.
It is supporting the service with support from payment processor Simplex.
The processor previously facilitated crypto card payments for Liquid , Binance, KuCoin, and Netcoins, among others.
Childly CEO Euntai Kim said: “Easier than ever, with a simple & secure way to buy crypto, Dove Wallet’s new built-in payment function will help improve the accessibility of crypto to users of any level at no risk.”
