What is Amp?
Amp is the native token for the Flexa payment platform. Flexa is a payment network that allows users to spend Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies at retailers such as Nordstrom, Barnes & Nobles and Lowe’s. Flexa payment is accepted in over 40,000 stores in the US and Canada. Using Flexa, you can make instant and fraud-proof payment to retailers without the need to disclose sensitive personal information. As a Flexa user your spending limit is capped at $US250 per week which resets to zero every Friday. Amp is the token that makes Flexa’s instant payment authorisations possible. Think of Amp as crowdsourced collateral i.e. security to decentralise payment risk. As an Amp holder you can stake Amp tokens which will be used to guarantee payment transactions in different currencies.

What to consider when buying AmpThere are several things to consider before buying Amp, the native token for the Flexa platform. Supply. The total supply of AMP tokens is fixed at 100 billion AMP, with a current circulating supply of 10 billion AMP as of April 2021. Staking. As an AMP token holder, you can stake AMP as collateral to Flexa-enabled payment apps such as SPEDN. As reported by DeFi Rate, the staked AMP then becomes “spending power” that enables consumers to pay merchants using the Flexa payment platform. In return, token holders will receive rewards that are proportionate to the amount of tokens that are staked. Migration from Flexacoin (FXC). Before AMP was launched, the Flexa platform used Flexacoin. As of September last year, Flexacoin ceased to be supported in the Flexa app and FXC holders can swap FXC for AMP at a 1-1 exchange rate. Volatility. According to the AMP token white paper, AMP is designed to be a “non-inflationary and low-volatility collateral token” with its value compounding exclusively because of the utility it provides as a security for payments in the Flexa network. This means the token is designed to be less volatile in price compared to other cryptocurrencies that can face extreme price volatility.
