Helix has created a unique mobile payment app and electronic card duo. Concurrent with each other, Helix Secure enables users to generate one time use Visa Prepaid virtual account numbers (VANs) instantly with the app. These VANs can be funded from their bitcoin wallet or bank account (ACH) and spent by swiping in the same traditional way at any point of sale (POS). By doing so, Helix has created a product that puts consumers, for the first time, in charge of their own purchasing protection. One time use VANs are the most secure method of payment in use today.
