As we near the end of Q1, we wanted to share a quick update of what we’ve been working on here at Flexa. The team has recently wrapped up work on the initial release of the Wallet SDK, and our first wallet partner will be launching within the next couple of weeks. Furthermore, in response to the current global situation, we’re hard at work accelerating the development of Flexa-powered online payments so that we can directly support our merchant partners’ most pressing needs. We’re looking forward to posting a more thorough update detailing all of these plans after our SDK partner’s launch. In the meantime, all of us at Flexa thank you for your support, and we hope that you’re doing everything you can to keep you and your family safe and healthy. 💜

Flexacoin will be available to migrate to Amp starting on Tuesday, September 8, 2020. For more details, see the latest Amp development update: https://medium.com/amptoken/amp-development-update-2-c5cf7c556851
In advance of Amp’s release on Tuesday, September 8, please familiarize yourself with the official Amp contract address (0xfF20817765cB7f73d4bde2e66e067E58D11095C2), and beware of fraudsters who may try to convince you to accept alternative Amp tokens—which are likely worthless, and cannot be used with apps like Flexa Capacity. https://etherscan.io/token/0xff20817765cb7f73d4bde2e66e067e58d11095c2
Today we are announcing the most fundamental upgrade to Flexa-powered payments since the launch of the Flexa network itself, a new collateral token designed in partnership with ConsenSys. Amp makes Flexa faster, more efficient, more secure, and more trustworthy, and will fully replace Flexacoin as the primary collateral for the Flexa network on September 30, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. ET. Between now and September 30, Flexa will support both FXC and AMP as collateral. After that date, you will need to have migrated your Capacity stake to Amp in order to continue earning network rewards. https://medium.com/flexa/flexa-capacity-is-migrating-to-amp-636bd94e1241
A friendly reminder… Flexa Capacity is discontinuing support for Flexacoin (FXC) tomorrow. After tomorrow, you will always be able to withdraw your Flexacoin, but you will need to migrate to Amp (AMP) to continue earning rewards. Learn how to migrate to Amp in our recent blog post: https://medium.com/flexa/flexa-capacity-is-migrating-to-amp-636bd94e1241
