Could you briefly describe Fizen.io?

Fizen.io offers crypto payment solutions that enable 400 million crypto holders to spend their digital assets globally. Our platform bridges the gap between the potential of cryptocurrency and its practical application, transforming crypto into a versatile and efficient tool for daily transactions. This is especially beneficial for travelers, digital nomads, and crypto enthusiasts who want to seamlessly integrate crypto into their everyday lives.

Our key product, the Fizen Super App, not only manages digital assets securely but also allows users to spend cryptocurrency conveniently. From USDt real-time off-ramp QR transactions in Southeast Asia to a vast selection of gift cards, airline tickets, and hotel bookings, Fizen.io makes crypto spending accessible and straightforward.


What is the primary mission or goal of your project?

Our vision is to merge traditional finance with decentralized alternatives, creating a more inclusive financial ecosystem. Fizen.io aims to be the go-to platform for crypto enthusiasts when they think about spending their assets. By providing user-friendly interfaces and comprehensive shopping tools, we empower individuals to have greater control over their financial destinies.

Why did you choose to join the Blockchain for Good Alliance, and how have you benefited from it?

Joining the Blockchain for Good Alliance (BGA) was a pivotal moment for Fizen, driven by a shared vision for innovation. We first learned about BGA through a trusted friend who was already a member. As we explored further, it became clear that our mission to integrate blockchain into everyday life aligned perfectly with BGA's goal of promoting blockchain mass adoption.

Our solutions, such as seamless QR code payments and user-friendly interfaces, make blockchain accessible to everyone, safeguarding users from phishing scams or attacks. This approach resonated with BGA's mission.

Being part of BGA has been incredibly beneficial. We've gained access to a network of like-minded innovators, collaborative opportunities, and valuable resources. The support and guidance from BGA have accelerated our growth and helped refine our solutions, expanding our reach.

Moreover, BGA has amplified our impact, validating our vision and empowering us to push the boundaries of blockchain technology. Our partnership with BGA propels both Fizen and the broader blockchain community toward a future where blockchain is an integral part of everyday life.
