Crypto is money.

This has always been the case, and it will always be the case. We want crypto to circulate as currency and become available to everyone around the world as a way to pay for everything in life: groceries, a new cell phone, your dream home, plane tickets, and even your wedding ring.

This is what we set up to do. We are building the infrastructure to make that possible.

Once our payments solution was in the right direction, we immediately set ourselves a new challenge. Businesses use money too. Crypto needs to be a solution for B2B…


Paytech is at the intersection of the greatest change in payments since the advent of credit cards. Offline payments have dropped 60% due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Evidently, this number will bounce back to a certain degree, but it is the accepted consensus among those study trends that they will never recover to their pre-pandemic levels. In fact, everything indicates that e-commerce will continue to grow.

E-commerce is here to stay, which means that technology that deals with payments is going to be one of the keys to the future.

When you’re running a truly open company, that lives for its community, answering questions is second nature. The last time we did an AMA, we promised we would be doing more. Promises made, promises kept.

This time, our co-founder and CSO Nuno Correia was joined by our Head of Customer Success Jorge Rebelo (special appearance by CEO Sanja Kon!). The AMA was hosted by Dr. Luke, in a repeat appearance, and it was as lively as it was interesting.

Reverse staking and compound yield are changing the game

The first thing Nuno answers is a question about the brand new features Utrust has announced, reverse staking and compound yield…

Digital currencies and ecommerce go hand in hand.

Have you ever considered why we use Dollars, Euros, or any other fiat currency to shop online? These are analog currencies, after all. Their legal tender was originally made of gold, or paper. When the world went digital, why would we keep using some digitized version of the same thing?

Why would you accept all the rules that countries invented to ensure the safety of their money reserves and the strength of their fiat currency when shopping online? Your payment is ones and zeros crossing a wire. It’s electrical impulses. Why would you commit to paying exchange rates on money…


Utrust was incorporated in Zug, Switzerland, and now one of the strongest financial countries in the world is opening us its doors yet again. SwissBorg, the digital wealth management service, is both listing our token and partnering up with us for our compound yield program.

SwissBorg is the wealth manager of the future, revolutionizing the way we handle our money much in the same way that Utrust is disrupting the way we make payments. It’s a partnership that was meant to be, and this is how it starts.

SwissBorg is changing their field

We weren’t joking or exaggerating when we said that SwissBorg is revolutionary…


A Utrust series on understanding money.

Over the last couple of months, Utrust has been providing you, our beloved community, with a history of money that was, hopefully, fun to read and provided a comprehensive story of the world we live in.

Now that the series is complete, we are compiling it all into one giant article so you can easily find it and peruse it at your leisure. It was lovingly edited and curated accordingly.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we’ve enjoyed writing it.

Chapter 1 — Before Currency

We have always traded. It’s a common misconception that the idea of markets and trade are a relatively…


Welcome to the true revolution in payments.

Utrust started out by charging a very small fee. The goal was always to help merchants consolidate their earnings, and provide a service that was objectively better than what traditional providers were achieving. The intention was never to be just another PayPal or Stripe.

The goal was to do better.

Now, Utrust has a solid merchant base, and digital currency adoption has definitely hit the mainstream.

It’s time to step up our game.

We are turning our fees into earnings for you

Whenever a merchant accepts a payment via Utrust, we charge a 1% fee. This has been our standard practice since…
