A Seamless B2B Solution Powered by Blockchain

NEW ORLEANS, LA., January 27, 2020 — In recent times, the decentralized finance movement has been gaining serious momentum. Even governments and mainstream media are starting to catch on. But for many businesses, actually utilizing cryptocurrency seems like a distant dream. Mass adoption might be years and years away. Even most crypto companies aren’t making payments with crypto!

Why not?

There’s no denying that the entire crypto industry is born from the ashes of a broken, repressive, siloed financial system. Satoshi Nakamoto couldn’t have made the point clearer when he stamped “The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks” into the Bitcoin genesis block.

How do you reconcile the hope of something better incited by blockchain technology with the pragmatic demands of the world? How do you make the concept of an open financial system something businesses can opt in to now?

That’s the conundrum Techstars alumni Gilded is dedicated to solving. And today they have an answer.

Gilded now offers an end-to-end solution that takes care of everything from invoicing and payments, to accounting and tax reporting for crypto. For the first time, a business can enjoy the benefits of crypto (global access, fast settlement, lower fees, etc.) while minimizing the facets that make it nearly impossible (e.g. difficulty of use, volatility.) Gilded understands that for now, companies still need to operate in the traditional financial world. That’s why they also offer conventional payment options like credit cards, via their new integration with Stripe.

“When you get in a car, you don’t have to understand the mechanics of an internal combustion engine to be able to drive it. That’s what we’re trying to do for crypto. ” Said Gil Hildebrand, CEO and Co-founder of Gilded.

What does Open Finance mean today? It’s about giving customers a choice in how to pay. It’s about giving blockchain businesses the opportunity to put their money where their mouth is. It’s about taking personal responsibility to drive mass adoption.
