According to its website, the BoomFi is now compatible with the Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain and Solana blockchains, as well as layer2 Polygon and Arbitrum.

“Despite its vast potential, crypto adoption in payments has been slow due to obstacles such as blockchain scalability issues, suboptimal user experience, regulatory challenges and poor perception. However, I am convinced that we are at an important turning point. As someone who identifies opportunities in the midst of uncertainty, I believe this is the perfect time to move forward,” commented BoomFi co-founder Jack Tang.
