COINQVEST offers an online cryptocurrency payment processor service for merchants looking to accept cryptocurrency payments. The product converts sales in cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin to a fiat currency stablecoin; then is transferrable to a non-custodial crypto wallet or exchanged and deposited to a bank account. With this license, COINQVEST can now also provide secure and convenient custodial wallets for merchants, complying with mandatory regulations as well as AML/KYC standards.
The COINQVEST platform is built on the Stellar Network, a leading blockchain in the market. Many companies, looking for solutions to bridge the gap between traditional and modern financial tools, choose Stellar as a foundation. Its transaction speed, native decentralized exchange (DEX), and secure protocols make it the ideal ecosystem for COINQVEST’s financial service.
