Nxt-ID, Inc. (NASDAQ: NXTD) provides a comprehensive platform of technology products and services that enable the Internet of Things (IoT).
In December 2017, Fit Pay, Inc., a subsidiary of NXT-ID and Cascade Financial Technology Corp announced an agreement for the joint development of a platform that gives cryptocurrency holders the ability to use the value of their currency to make purchases at millions of retail locations worldwide. The new platform will enable devices with stored value exchanged from cryptocurrency to be used for traditional payment transactions.
Shortly thereafter, NXTD introduced FlipTM, a new contactless payment device that will enable cryptocurrency holders to use the value of their currency to make purchases at millions of retail locations.
Flip will be near field communication-enabled (NFC) allowing it to transact payments at any retail point of sale location that accepts contactless payments. Flip will store a preloaded amount of U.S. dollars that are exchanged from the user’s existing cryptocurrency account. It includes a digital wallet that allows the user to set how much value they would like their Flip to hold and when they would like it to reload. Initially, Flip will accept value exchanged from Bitcoin and will potentially expand to other cryptocurrencies in the future.

Stock influences and risk factors
The crypto currency presence is growing quickly and NXTD is in a position to benefit from it.
Facilitating crypto currency transactions may grow faster than the digital currency and NXTD is at the forefront of that market. Continuing good news from FLIP could be a stock catalyst.
The company may not be able to raise additional cash from equity financings, secure debt financing, and/or generate revenue from the sales of its products.
The revenue and income potential of their proposed business and operations are currently unknown.
NXTD faces intense competition, especially from larger, well-established companies, and they may lack sufficient financial or other resources to maintain or improve their competitive position.
