The new crypto-focused solution will allow users to exchange fiat money for crypto and crypto for fiat money. In addition, the company is aiming at the growing Web3 hype as the new platform would offer an onboarding solution for Web3 applications.

“Payment infrastructure has always been a core component of the money lego set for dapp developers to onboard real-world users to the world of Web3. At Unlimint, we see this new solution as the future,” said Jack Jia, the Head of GateFi at Unlimint.

“We will build with the builders, and unlock key innovations to reign in a new era of crypto adoption for Defi, NFT, and Gamefi. GateFi is set to break down the walls currently in place, allowing users complete payment freedom.”

Unilimint onboarded Jia in October to head its newly established crypto platform. He has been associated with the crypto industry since 2013, working for various companies, including Consensys.

Bringing Traditional Payments Expertise into Crypto

With its headquarters in London and presence in major financial hubs like Frankfurt, Singapore, São Paulo, Hong Kong and Mexico, Unlimint offers an all-in-one payments solution that includes corporate accounts, acquiring, crypto and now BaaS.

The company’s crypto solution came a couple of months after introducing a banking-as-a-service (BaaS) product. The BaaS product offers more than 150 APIs to allow businesses to customize their payment offerings. Furthermore, it includes crypto-to-fiat conversion.

“By combining our experience as a traditional payment company, with longstanding trusted networks, to forward-thinking ideas and current trends around crypto, we are positive GateFi will deliver a unique experience within the decentralized and blockchain world, preparing our clients for tomorrow,” Jia added.
