Cabital Adds GBP To Payment Methods Via BCB Group Parternship
VILNIUS, Lithuania & LONDON, United Kingdom, 10 November 2021 – Cabital, a leading digital assets institution, today announced that it has partnered with BCB Group (BCB), one of Europe’s leading providers of business accounts and trading services for the digital asset economy, enabling it to incorporate GBP to its growing list of payment methods.
Cabital’s partnership with BCB allows it to serve any customer who holds GBP as the rate of cryptocurrency adoption increases across Europe. The partnership with BCB allows users to exchange GBP for crypto assets and vice versa. Customers who convert their digital assets into GBP can easily transfer it to a bank account held in their name.
Raymond Hsu, Co-Founder & CEO of Cabital said:
“Cabital’s partnership with BCB allows people who hold GBP to buy crypto assets and enjoy high-yield passive income through our interest-bearing crypto asset deposit products on Cabital Earn. This will provide our customers who hold GBP with more opportunities to generate higher returns in an exciting and quickly growing asset class.
“As we further execute our strategic ambitions, we will continue seeking secure and efficient strategic partnerships that will allow our customers to easily and safely invest in cryptocurrency and generate high-yield passive income from their digital assets no matter what fiat currency they hold. Looking ahead, we plan on adding more fiat currencies to Cabital’s crypto rails in 2022.
“I am confident that the continued execution of our strategic priorities will create long-term sustainable value for our shareholders and customers.”
Oliver von Landsberg-Sadie, Founder and CEO of BCB Group, added:
”We’re delighted to be working with Cabital, and helping them with payments infrastructure to allow them to incorporate GBP into their offering.”
Last month, Cabital announced that it has added the European Union’s Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) to its growing list of payment methods, enabling customers to seamlessly change between euros and cryptocurrencies to generate high-yield passive income.
The SEPA announcement came after Cabital’s recently successful $4 million seed round that was led by SIG, Dragonfly, and GSR, increasing the company’s valuation to $40 million. That followed Cabital’s previously successful angel round where the company raised $3 million.
Cabital is a leading global digital assets institution. The company’s purpose is to empower people to earn passive income safely and securely with their cryptocurrencies. Our main product is Cabital Earn, a cryptocurrency wealth management platform that enables customers to buy cryptocurrencies with euros and acquire higher returns on their investments of up to 12% APY.
Cabital’s compliance programme is modelled after leading global financial service providers. We use SumSub’s biometric identity verification solution to manage the risk of identity fraud. To provide our customers with peace of mind, all customers’ crypto assets are held with Fireblocks, one of the world’s most trusted digital asset custody, transfer and settlement platforms. We have been using Chainalysis’ KYT and Reactor products since our formation to empower us to meet applicable regulatory requirements on Anti-Money Laundering (AML) in each of our markets with ease and agility.
