Ramp Network, the financial technology company building payment rails connecting crypto to the global financial system, is integrating with the Solana blockchain-based Web3 payments platform Helio. The integration will make it simpler for e-commerce merchants, internet entrepreneurs, and content creators to accept payments through fiat, as well as USDC stablecoins and other cryptocurrency tokens.
While Ramp has offered fiat on- and off-ramps to $SOL tokens since 2021, the integration with Helio is its first integration with one of Solanas top ecosystem projects. By partnering with Helio, Ramp is making it possible for the platforms loyal users to purchase tokens including $ETH, $SOL, $MATIC, $USDC, $USDT and any Ethereum ERC-20 or Solana-based SPL native token with fiat currencies directly within its payments app at extremely competitive rates.
We are excited that Helio will join us on our journey to bridge the gap between traditional financial systems and the evolving world of web3. Helio users can now effortlessly transition from fiat to cryptocurrencies like $ETH, $SOL, $MATIC, $USDC, and more, directly within the Helio payments app. This partnership is about more than just facilitating transactions; it's about making the Web 3 accessible, efficient, and enjoyable for everyone, from e-commerce merchants to content creators, said Jose Jimenez-Mancha, Ramp Chief Commercial Officer
Together, Ramp and Helio are shaping the future of decentralized payments powered by our industry-leading on-ramp offering instant payouts, minimal fees, and a user-friendly experience that welcomes everyone into the world of crypto,
Helio launched on the Solana blockchain in the summer of 2022 and has emerged as one of the top 10 dApps of that network, with over $25 million worth of payments processed across more than 75,000 unique digital wallets. Already, Helio has emerged as the favorite payments gateway for thousands of crypto projects and creators, facilitating NFT presales, peer-to-peer deposits, subscription payments, paywalling, e-commerce transactions and more.
Jim Walker, Helio Co-Founder and CTO said: "We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Ramp. This move goes beyond a simple integration; it signifies a substantial step to onboard mainstream users to the benefits of decentralised payments including instant payouts & low fees, and reaching our goal of making crypto payments accessible and enjoyable for everyone.
By incorporating the Ramp widget in our platform, any user, regardless of their crypto experience, can now seamlessly create and fund their Helio Wallet with digital currency to instantly purchase from 1000s of merchants that sell with Helio.
