The crypto industry has taken the world by storm. It is expected to disrupt the way business is done around the globe. One of the most significant use case being that of payments. Every business, however big or small has understood the importance of accepting crypto payments and are actively integrating it with their businesses.

As a leading player in the industry, we actively build products that fuel the crypto ecosystem. We are on a mission to make it easy for businesses to enter the system and for existing businesses to provide a valuable service for their users.

Our APIs can be used by anyone to convert over 350 cryptocurrencies across 45,000 exchange pairs at best rates instantly. Irrespective of what business you are into, you can always build services on top of our APIs to fit into your business need. There are multitudes of businesses that can integrate our APIs into their service offerings.

Wallet Providers

CoinSwitch wallet partners

One of the most important entities of the crypto ecosystem is wallets. Million of users worldwide store their cryptocurrencies with these wallet companies. Our APIs can be used by Wallet companies to provide exchange service within their wallets. Wallet users will be able to convert 350+ coins within the wallet at best rates, as we aggregate over 10 exchanges. We also provide a fixed-rate exchange for 20 minutes. Some of the major wallet companies like Exodus, Trezor, imToken, Guarda are using our services.

E-commerce Services

With the advent of cryptocurrency, a lot of e-commerce businesses now support crypto payments alongside fiat payments. It’s not possible for businesses to accept all cryptocurrencies and hence they stick to accepting the most prominent ones like Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) etc. These websites can use our APIs to accept payments in over 350+ coins that get converted at the backend to the cryptocurrency(ies) of their choice. We offer a fixed-rate exchange for such businesses so that the merchant can mitigate the risk of volatility. This is a win-win situation for both the merchant, as he can now sell his products in exchange for a wide array of coins, and, the customer as he/she doesn’t have to worry about getting their coin first converted into the coin of the merchant’s choice.

Gaming Platforms

A lot of gaming sites have started accepting payments in cryptocurrencies and these sites can use our APIs in a similar fashion to e-commerce websites to accepts crypto payments for a huge variety of coins. Just as in the case of e-commerce, they can use our fixed rate exchange so as to avoid the price fluctuation risk. Some of the gaming sites that use our APIs for accepting crypto payments are stake.com and bearescape.io.

Over the course of time, having spoken to numerous businesses we have identified certain prominent use cases and have built ready to use products for such businesses apart from our APIs.
