What is MoonPay?
MoonPay is a financial technology company that builds payments infrastructure for crypto.
They launched in 2019 with a simple aim: increase cryptocurrency adoption. Starting with a team of just two young entrepreneurs — co-founders Ivan Soto-Wright and Victor Faramond — the company set out to create a simple and secure software solution that would enable people from all over the world to participate in the biggest digital revolution since the internet.
MoonPay is currently active in more than 160 countries and is trusted by 250+ leading wallets, websites, and applications to accept payments and defeat fraud. In November 2021, the company closed a $555 million Series A funding round at a $3.4 billion valuation — the largest and highest valued Series A for any bootstrapped crypto company.
