Bitstamp & Fiat Republic Partner for Instant Fiat-Crypto Access

Money2020, Amsterdam, 7th June 2023: Bitstamp, the world's original and longest-running cryptocurrency exchange, today announces its partnership with Fiat Republic, the EMI-regulated, Fiat-as-a-Service platform aggregating local bank rails for crypto platforms via a single API. This partnership marks a significant step towards providing enhanced services to customers of both partners, in an effort to overcome the limitations of traditional banking systems.

In today’s fast-paced crypto landscape, tradfi banking systems often struggle to keep up with the demand for faster liquidity provision and faster payments. Many financial institutions have imposed limitations or even wholly halted fiat payments to and from crypto platforms, significantly disrupting their business operations. This strategic alliance between Bitstamp and Fiat Republic is crucial, addressing the growing demand for uninterrupted and instant access to fiat liquidity when trading digital assets.

This partnership will facilitate an enhanced trading experience, with access to a reliable and cost-effective crypto liquidity and payment infrastructure. In the future, Bitstamp’s corporate customers can leverage the instant fiat settlement capabilities of Fiat Republic’s proprietary EagleNet network.

JB Graftieaux, Global CEO at Bitstamp, said: “We are pleased to announce our partnership with Fiat Republic and future integration with their groundbreaking EagleNet instant settlement network. This collaboration underscores our commitment to advancing the industry by providing crucial crypto-fiat solutions. Through our own enhanced technology and leveraging the power of Fiat Republic’s payment rails, we are dedicated to delivering a safe, seamless, and reliable way for our clients to access digital currencies, ensuring a forward-moving trajectory for the entire ecosystem.”

Adam Bialy, Founder and CEO at Fiat Republic, added: “We are delighted to be collaborating with Bitstamp, as their focus on regulatory compliance and their strong pedigree in crypto liquidity provision aligns perfectly with our mission at Fiat Republic to make digital assets accessible to everyone. By providing the essential infrastructure, clients with accounts at both Fiat Republic and Bitstamp will be able to enjoy the benefits of instant, low-cost fiat settlements, whether they seek crypto liquidity through Bitstamp or fiat payment services through Fiat Republic.”
