Contactless payment instrument to be funded with value exchanged from Bitcoin

Fit Pay, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of NXT-ID, Inc.  (NXTD), today announced a co-marketing agreement with rapper, record producer and entrepreneur Wesley Eric Weston, Jr., better known as Lil' Flip aka 'Flip Gate$'. Under the agreement, Lil' Flip and FitPay will collaborate to market a contactless payment device that allows Bitcoin holders to make contactless payments in millions of retail locations with value exchanged from their cryptocurrency. The device, which will include artwork designed by Lil' Flip and carry his branding, leverages the FitPay® Bitcoin Exchange and payment Token Requestor platforms.

"I've always been ahead of my time. This move was planned 10 years ago. I'm a calculated mastermind. I pattern my biz moves after greats like J.Prince, Warren Buffet, Jay-Z and Bill Gates. That's why my nickname is Flip Gate$ and don't forget the dollar sign. Checkmate!!!!! #KINGLIFE," said Lil' Flip. "Great to work with a company like FitPay that is forward thinking and shares my vision."

The coin-shaped device will store a preloaded amount of U.S. dollars that are exchanged from the user's existing Bitcoin account and has a digital wallet that allows users to set how much value they would like their device to hold and when they would like it to reload. It includes near field communication (NFC) antenna allowing users to tap and pay at any retail point of sale location that accepts contactless payments. The artwork on the device will be designed by Lil' Flip and reflect his branding.

"Through his music, videos, social media and other content channels, Lil' Flip speaks to and connects with a broad of community of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency enthusiasts," Michael Orlando, COO of NXT-ID and President of Fit Pay, Inc. "We see this agreement as a unique avenue for reaching an audience that is highly interested in new technologies within cryptocurrency."
