Wyre (SendWyre) is a blockchain technology initiative that partnered with MakerDAO stablecoin solution and the Plasma DEX Altcoin.io for implementation of compliant decentralized trading. Funded privately by the likes of DCG or Tim Draper.
Wyre: About the Platform
Wyre is a blockchain initiative that does not develop particular solutions as a final product, it is a generic method that can be implemented to create pathway for traders entering the cryptoasset space for the very first time through fiat.
Thanks to Wyre it is possible that the new investors may easily enter the markets directly through a DEX, with the right implementation the need to buy cryptocurrencies on a centralized exchange first is eliminated.
The fiat-crypto bridge is a is a regulated service working via a ERC-721 compliance token on the Ethereum blockchain: They verify that you are who you say you are, mint a non-fungible token for you and after this one-time process you are free to start trading with compliant liquidity on a DEX.
On top of this solution Wyre also has a crypto OTC desk for BTC, BCH, ETH, LTC, ZEC and ERC20 tokens.
Wyre is currently hiring.
