To give additional background: on August 10, 2020, the Company announced that it joined the Visa Fintech Fast Track Program - for the rollout of a Crypto-Backed Visa Card. The Company has engaged with i2c Inc. ("i2c") to be the backend provider that links directly into the Visa network.
"NetCents sets itself apart in the field of true payments innovators who turn big ideas into reality," said i2c EVP of Sales Kevin Fox, adding, "We couldn't be more pleased to have them as partners and to play a role in helping them bring their product visions to life."
i2c, headquartered in Silicon Valley, has developed unique software that will accelerate NetCents' rollout of its Visa product. i2c is currently working with over 1,000 companies specialized in global payments and operates in over 200 Countries.
"i2c is providing technology to the biggest companies in the payments industry. They have developed thousands of software building blocks that can be configured to the many use cases we expect to have for our payment's ecosystem," stated Clayton Moore, Founder and CEO of NetCents Technology.

NetCents is pleased to report that it has completed all the technical development needed for the Visa Program launch and is proceeding with the final certification phase during the week of October 26, 2020. It is expected that this process will take two weeks to complete. The Company is currently completing the work to receive Bank Compliance to issue a BIN number, which is required to launch the card.
The Company is targeting a November 15 launch for its virtual card product. Unfortunately, if that deadline slips, Visa has an internally imposed blackout period preventing the issuance of cards during the holidays so that the next launch date will be January 15, 2021. At that time, NetCents will be positioned to issue both virtual and physical Visa Cards.
In addition to the original card program functionality, NetCents is integrating Google Pay and Apple Pay to the program to allow users to add their NetCents Cryptocurrency Visa Card to their Google Pay and Apple Pay wallets, which will enable users to use the virtual card at retail locations.
The Company has granted stock options for a total of two million common shares of the company to officers, directors, employees and consultants of the company. These stock options are exercisable at $0.98 per stock option and will expire on October 22, 2021. The stock options will vest immediately.
NetCents Technology Inc, the transactional hub for all cryptocurrency payments, equips forward-thinking businesses with the technology to seamlessly integrate cryptocurrency processing into their payment model without taking on the risk or volatility of the crypto market. NetCents Technology is registered as a Money Services Business (MSB) with FINTRAC.
