Crypto vs SWIFT

Send payments in seconds, not days.

Crypto settlement is a faster, more transparent and a cost-efficient alternative to SWIFT.

  • Faster

    With SWIFT transfers, your money might be routed via intermediary banks across various jurisdictions and time zones before receiving your funds, resulting in longer processing times. By leveraging blockchain rails and our trusted network partners, the transaction process is streamlined as funds are sent directly to your receiving agent.

  • Lower cost

    The cost of SWIFT transfers varies and is made up of a combination of fees and exchange rates. Sending remittances with crypto means avoiding the high fees charged by intermediaries.

  • Greater transparency

    Avoid the hidden costs in the exchange rates or transaction fees. Track and verify your crypto transactions on the blockchain.
