Slope Finance, the first mobile wallet built on Solana which has gained phenomenal traction in the mobile-first market, has announced its partnership with MoonPay, a leading crypto payments infrastructure company, to offer an industry-first wallet with a fiat on-ramp into the Solana ecosystem. This partnership offers easy access to Slope’s quarter of a million users who are embracing the full spectrum of offerings from cryptocurrency purchases to NFT minting capability.
The partnership with MoonPay significantly reduces the barriers of access to blockchain by enabling users to participate directly through traditional fiat payment methods. This allows users to use debit cards or Apple Pay methods to convert from their own local fiat currency to dollars when making purchases.
Ivan Soto-Wright, Co-Founder and CEO of MoonPay, said:
“From the very beginning, MoonPay has worked to simplify fiat-to-crypto transactions so that more people can have access to this remarkable technology. Partnering with leaders in the mobile space such as Slope is a giant step in this direction, and we’re delighted to see where it leads us.”
This is a timely partnership given the extraordinary consumer interest in the NFT market. With Slope Finance offering minting, floor prices, and leveraging of NFTs, this will give a new level of power to users of the platform.
MoonPay is a rapidly growing company that at just two and a half years old had the largest and highest valued Series A for any bootstrapped crypto company globally. It’s the ultimate partner to join Slope on this journey.
