Linking old with new

The platform which links crypto-assets to classic bank accounts is designed to address both the increased interest in cryptocurrencies, as well as associated skepticism surrounding cryptocurrencies. 

According to SamBanx, its technology can connect crypto assets to traditional EU bank accounts of ‘500 mln of the most powerful consumers in the world’ in 33 countries and 3000 banks in Europe. The technology uses PSD-2 and SEPA Instant Payments, so users can make withdrawals and deposits in a matter of seconds. SamBanx says it is constantly on top of the best currency exchanges on the market and has a real-time connection to 10 top crypto-exchange markets and can monitor all available rates.  There is also a Know Your Customer option, access to multiple accounts for fiat and crypto currencies and a debit card that can be used at ATMs.
