SDF (Stellar Development Foundation) Announces $550,000 Investment in SatoshiPay
Stellar works a cross-currency transaction model and a place for digital asset issuance. Now, it is trying to link the global financial infrastructure. The SDF helps Stellar by managing its codebase and supporting it technically. It also supports business community building on the Stellar network. The foundation serves as a voice for the network when negotiating with regulators and other entities. Here is what the SDF said regarding the new arrangement with SatoshiPay:
“As one of the first people to work with Stellar, SatoshiPay has demonstrated how our technology enables innovation and leverages the network to build a growing platform for fast global payments.”
Founded in 2014, the Berlin and London- based SatoshiPay is reportedly one of the first firms to adopter Stellar. It offers B2B cross-border transfers and micropayment processing through its Blockchain platform. With its headquarters in London, SatoshiPay brought up an innovative way to monetize content through frictionless nano payments with Blockchain technology.
