Gibraltar-based Tap has announced its intention to launch in the US through a partnership with Zero Hash

Through this partnership, Tap will operate in the region via its subsidiary Tap Americas, ensuring its requisite regulatory coverage for the new business and the company as a whole. 

Gibraltar-based Tap has announced its intention to launch in the US through a partnership with Zero Hash.

The launch’s objective

With the US being one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency markets, estimated to account for 48% of the global market growth between 2022 and 2027, and with 17% of all adults having invested in cryptocurrencies, Tap’s launch comes as a response to the current environment. The company incorporated a US entity in early 2023 but maintained a conservative approach to market entry due to the legal complexities of launching in the country. However, it focused on its European expansion, launching several B2B initiatives, and improving its leadership team.

Currently, Tap has built a 45 million active cryptocurrency waiting list in the US, with the company being able to offer customers access to 24 digital assets. These include cryptocurrencies such as BTC, ETH, XRP, and USDC. By leveraging Zero Hash’s building blocks of liquidity, custody, and settlement, Tap aims to facilitate P2P transfers and crypto swaps. This allows users to deposit and withdraw crypto from an external wallet and earn crypto rewards.

Moreover, the collaboration with Zero Hash aims to enable Tap to launch a fiat-to-crypto on-and-off ramp later in 2023. Through this, Tap’s customers will be able to buy and sell cryptocurrencies via Automated Clearing House (ACH) bank transfers. According to the company’s officials, Tap already has 200,000 registered users and the launch in the US aims to consolidate its expansion to additional countries, including Canada and Australia.
