Banxa launches Polygon
Banxa integrates with Polygon to give clients a more flexible fiat on-ramp
With Polygon integration, Banxa’s clients can choose between different blockchains when purchasing select ERC20 tokens
Banxa, a public payment service provider (PSP) and compliance RegTech platform for the digital asset industry, integrates its fiat on-ramp platform with Polygon’s commit-chain.
The integration supports Polygon-integrated projects by expanding their access to fiat through Banxa’s network of regulated and compliant partners around the world. Banxa’s strong international presence helps the projects expand their own footing in different markets.
With the integration, Banxa’s clients will be able to purchase Polygon’s native MATIC token with fiat. They will also be able to choose between the native and Polygon’s blockchains when purchasing select ERC20 tokens that feature Polygon as a second supported network.
The ERC20 standard is the go-to smart contract for launching fungible tokens in the Ethereum ecosystem, which, while being the dominant force in the DeFi space, is plagued by high gas fees and slow throughput.
By adding Polygon support to its network, Banxa brings its clients more versatility and helps them reduce the gas fees and transaction processing time when purchasing nine ERC20 tokens. This smoothes out their journey into DeFi, allowing them to access or invest in some of the most popular decentralized projects in the ecosystem by buying their respective native tokens.
The full list of multi-blockchain tokens covered by the integration includes:
- Basic Attention Token ($BAT, ERC20/Polygon/Binance Smart Chain)
- Chainlink ($LINK, ERC20/Polygon/Binance Smart Chain)
- Compound ($COMP, ERC20/Polygon/Binance Smart Chain)
- DAI ($DAI, ERC20/Polygon/Binance Smart Chain)
- Ether ($ETH, ERC20/Polygon/Binance Smart Chain)
- Synthetix Network Token ($SNX, ERC20/Polygon/Binance Smart Chain)
- Uniswap ($UNI, ERC20/Polygon/Binance Smart Chain)
- USD Coin ($USDC, ERC20/Polygon/Algorand/Binance Smart Chain)
- USD Tether ($USDT, ERC20/Polygon/Binance Smart Chain/TRC20)
- Yearn.Finance ($YFI, ERC20/Polygon)
