Cryptocurrency payments are fast, cheap, and global—a 10x improvement for business payments. Yet many businesses are reluctant to accept crypto because there aren't enough places to spend it.
You can solve this by converting the crypto payments you receive to fiat currency. But crypto exchanges carry high fees that eat into your cost savings, while bank withdrawals can take days.
That's all changing today.
Gilded and Ternio are partnering to help businesses avoid expensive crypto-to-fiat conversion fees, while allowing them to spend crypto anywhere major credit cards are accepted. How?
Accept crypto payments with your BlockCard account
Gilded users can accept payment in Bitcoin, Ethereum, and stablecoins—directly to their BlockCard account. When you invoice with Gilded and accept crypto payments with your BlockCard, you can spend your crypto instantly with zero transaction fees.
BlockCard's physical or virtual debit card can be used anywhere major credit cards are accepted.
Gilded users can use their BlockCard account to invoice and accept payment in the following digital currencies:
- Bitcoin (BTC)
- DAI (DAI)
- Ethereum (ETH)
- Paxos Standard (PAX)
- USDC (USDC)
- USDT (USDT)
- TrueUSD (TUSD)
BONUS FEATURE: Pay and get paid with TERN
That's not all. Gilded has launched support for the TERN token on Ethereum.
Freelancers and businesses can now use the TERN ERC-20 token to pay and get paid through the Gilded platform.
