We’re proud to announce a new partnership with, allowing 2.3 million businesses and merchants in 182 countries to accept payments in GLX stablecoin. ‘Now it’s easy for anyone to pay for goods and services with GLX at a vast network globally.

“ There have been solutions that have come out to stabilize the market and make entry into crypto more attractive, but none have gone so far yet as the Globcoin team. Globcoin is an innovative project that CoinPayments is happy to support by integrating it and offering to our merchants worldwide” —

GLX, being pegged to a basket of 15 currencies and gold, is the perfect stablecoin for e-commerce. It facilitates international transactions with the same speed and convenience than cryptocurrencies, at lower-costs and without the volatility issue that may have disencouraged the utilisation of cryptocurrencies in the past.

Users can now pay with GLX to a merchant who will trust the value of the received payment, and who won’t have to worry about losing profit to the high fees applied by credit card’s payment services. This will help CoinPayments and future e-commerce partners to increase database and quality of service.

As Globcoin CTO Nicolas Genko put it: ‘We have chosen the best in class IT solution as the payment gateway for merchants and consumers to use our GLX. I am very happy with the UX and the IT.’
