How do trading companies benefit from a crypto payment gateway?

Blockchain technology has revolutionized the global financial infrastructure. At the same time, innovations have occurred not only in terms of progress but also in terms of earnings. Today, many traders trading currency quotes, stocks, futures, and other traditional financial tools are interested in crypto trading. This is largely due to the fact that the cryptocurrency market is still young. There is no clear dominance of institutional investors, and the high volatility of crypto assets reaching up to 1000% is the norm. All this creates heavenly conditions for skilled traders who are now forced to look for trading platforms that support cryptocurrencies. For this reason, the owners of trading companies are exploring the possibilities of receiving and sending cryptocurrencies using special services — crypto payment gateways. Read on about what a crypto payment gateway is, why NOWPayments is the best choice, and how to add crypto support to a trading platform.

  • The crypto payment gateway allows you to accept and send cryptocurrency in a secure and efficient manner.
  • Support of cryptocurrency allows trading platforms to keep up with the times and generate high income.

What is a crypto payment gateway?

Crypto payment gateway is a service that allows you to accept payments in cryptocurrency as easily as bank cards. The crypto payment gateway, or in other words, the processor, accepts and processes crypto payments and sends them to the client’s wallet (non-custodial) or stores them on the user account until the withdrawal request (custodial).

The service allows you to accept crypto payments and convert them to fiat, as well as vice versa accept fiat payments and convert them to cryptocurrency. Crypto payment gateways provide various integration tools for accepting crypto payments, such as e-commerce plugins, invoices, API, PoS terminal, and more. Thanks to this, users can accept crypto payments on any website, in an app, on CMS platforms, or even offline. In addition, with the help of a crypto payment gateway, business owners can organize mass payouts in cryptocurrency.

Why do trading platforms need crypto payments?

Despite crypto winter, cryptocurrency does not lose its popularity and has been the main trend in recent years. More and more people are exploring crypto trading because the volatility of cryptocurrencies allows getting a big profit that is not comparable to the profit from trading stocks, options, or fiat currencies.

For this reason, many trading platforms are expanding the list of available financial tools in order to gain access to the widest possible audience. Traders are more inclined to choose the platform that has the most extensive tool kit. As the saying goes, demand generates supply. If you don’t cover the demand, someone else will definitely.

In addition, cryptocurrency is a decentralized financial tool that allows you to make transactions without the participation of banks and other monetary structures. Thanks to this, trading platforms can eliminate the need to mess with paperwork that goes hand in hand with traditional financial tools. You will no longer have to wait for a response from the bank, experience delays or account freezes, or pay high fees for the opportunity to accept traders’ money. Crypto payment gateways provide a hassle-free and cost-effective way to integrate crypto support, allowing your business to flourish and benefit from all the benefits of a new generation of finance.
