Simplex is an industry-leading firm that pioneered many crypto-to-fiat payment solutions. Its paygates are widely utilized by many top-notch services.

IOTA (MIOTA) token price has surged almost 6.5% today and is changing hands at $0.2416 on major spot platforms, according to Coingecko statistics.

Walking the road to adoption

The IOTA Foundation is working on decentralized systems for many IoT use-cases. Recently, the IOTA-fueled Digital Health Passport (IOTA Selv) was mentioned as a leading blockchain social initiative by the European Fundraising Association.

Also, IOTA will completely decentralize its data structure by removing its single centralization point, Coordinator. The first stage of the new IOTA decentralized testnet, Pollen, was launched a week ago, on June 30, 2020.

The Pollen testnet is onboarding developers from all over the globe to test and verify the solutions that will power IOTA decentralized systems in the future.
