When you create a service that is meant to help people, you always think about the way you can do even more for your fans and partners. That is why many companies nowadays create affiliate programs and partnership agreements.

BestRate was founded to change the way people use cryptocurrencies and to remove the barriers between users and blockchain technology.

The difficulty of conducting transactions and transfers was one of these barriers. But we managed to reduce this barrier and give people the opportunity to buy what they want using the cryptocurrency they want or get paid in a similar manner.

This October we introduced the joint project with one of the leading Blockchain conferences — Beyond Blocks. A week later after the first conversations, the fully working Business Payout page was created. We have made some design improvements to…


ShapeShift, one of our main partners, is one of the eldest OTC platforms in the cryptocurrency space and many other services rely on the exchange technology that it provides. Some of its partners simply use the Skeleton tool to put the generated code onto their websites, others, such as Jaxx, Exodus and our service BestRate use API for deeper customization. But regardless of the integration method, they all now have to look for another solution.

Starting from November 1st, ShapeShift implements mandatory KYC procedure for its users which complicates the life for its partners as the new rules apply to…

Our technical teams were in contact and helped each other in developing better blockchain solutions for both smart-contract development and payment solutions. MyWish was one of the first clients for BestRate’s Token Distribution product.

Today we announce that we are signing up the strategic partnership alliance. Vladimir Tikhomirov, CEO…


Launched in October 2017, our service was initially designed to be the aggregator of exchange platforms and OTCs. Having successfully worked for a year and gained tons of experience, we now want to share our plans for the upcoming months.

The OTCs that our service is based on have many flaws and deficiencies. The exchange platforms are not perfect either. Now that ShapeShift, one of our core partners, implements mandatory KYC, we’ve decided that it’s time to design our own technology that will eliminate the deficiencies of existing solutions.

OTCs’ disadvantages

When converting currencies via an OTC, you switch them between your…

Aggregator of exchange platforms

First of all, we’d like to explain the technology that stands behind all our products.

Typically, when you need to sell an altcoin and buy another one you can do this via an OTC or an exchange platform. However, both of these options have their drawbacks.
