MoonPay’s infrastructure aims to help onboard LooksRare customers to Web3 and will offer a suite of products to facilitate efficient transactions. Its "NFT Checkout" allows collectors to purchase NFTs with a debit or credit card without first purchasing cryptocurrency. It will also let MoonPay users purchase LOOKS, the marketplace’s native token.
"From day one, we've wanted MoonPay to be a platform that increases access and usability for the Web3 community and this partnership is another step in driving that vision,” Oliver Jeffcott, senior business development manager at MoonPay, said in a press release.
