Unlimint launches GateFi and expands into the crypto space

Wednesday 2 November 2022 14:00 CET | News

UK-based global fintech Unlimint has launched its GateFi solution to allow users to exchange fiat money to crypto and crypto to fiat money.


Moreover, GateFi also works as a Web3 onboarding solution that aims to familiarise mainstream users with Web3 and DeFi.  Using this new crypto solution, clients can pay from any location, in any way they want, and through any channel.  

Another highlight of GateFi is that it allows decentralised app (dapp) developers to connect traditional payment networks to public blockchain networks. This offers a direct access point between the world of Web 2.0 and the world of Web 3.0. These developers can access the solution across several verticals, including financial apps, social apps, NFTs, and gaming while tapping a portfolio of more than 1000 directly integrated alternative payment methods. 

Regarding this launch, Unlimint officials have stated in the company press release that the payment infrastructure has always been an important component of the money lego set for dapp developers to onboard real-world users to the world of Web3.

Businesses are gearing up to accept crypto as payment 

According to the ‘Merchants getting ready for crypto’ survey by Deloitte, 75% of retailers plan to accept either cryptocurrency or stablecoin by 2024. Nearly all the respondents agreed that the use of digital currencies for regular, everyday purchases will increase over the next few years, and the trend is likely to grow as technologies continue to mature. As the currency ecosystem is maturing, industry growth is continually fueled by increased utility and accessibility. 

However, merchants also report concerns and barriers to adoption as well as execution challenges. The report highlights that a number of these concerns could be addressed through deeper conversations on aspects of the technology and its implementation.
