What’s UTRUST?

We’re an innovative crypto-payment platform that simplifies the way customers buy online with cryptocurrencies (such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc) while providing the best protection on the market. We believe that current payment systems will be surpassed, making crypto payments the future we want to help build.


How will we do that?

With the ever-growing momentum of cryptocurrencies and the blockchain technology, we believe this is the right time to start democratizing crypto-payments. We do so, by being the first ones to combine transactional safety and blockchain’s lower fees with the consumer protection of traditional payment systems, enabling refunds and mediation.

What’s unique about us?

We allow our merchants the possibility of offering their customers a platform that taps existing blockchains to pay with cryptocurrencies, eliminating scam and fraud risk, with full payment protection. So even if our merchants aren’t that into cryptocurrencies, they will benefit from the low fees and get paid in the currency they prefer.

Our goal is to build a platform around trust for the future of decentralized payment systems.
