Demystifying Crypto IBANs

The Concept and What They Do

Crypto IBANs link the legacy banking world with the Cryptoverse – it’s that simple. They fuse the stability of traditional bank accounts with cryptocurrencies. Essentially, crypto IBAN functions like a regular IBAN but with the added superpower of handling both fiat money and crypto seamlessly.

This is huge. There’s an insatiable appetite for services that can effortlessly move money back and forth between digital and traditional currencies across the European Economic Area (EEA), and crypto IBANs are ideal for this purpose.

How Crypto IBANs Work

Crypto IBANs make it a cakewalk to transfer cryptocurrencies directly in and out of your regular bank account. Then the wallet app instantly converts your cryptocurrency of choice into euros or loads up your crypto wallet with assets you’ve just purchased for euros. This functionality is critical for driving mainstream adoption since it bridges the gap between crypto and day-to-day banking.

The Process of Converting Crypto to EUR and Vice Versa

When a user wishes to convert their cryptocurrency into fiat currency, the crypto is first sent from their wallet to the exchange platform linked with their crypto IBAN. The platform then executes the conversion based on the current market rates. Once converted, the fiat currency is deposited into the user’s account, associated with their crypto IBAN, making it available for immediate use or transfer.

Conversely, when converting fiat currency to cryptocurrency, the user transfers euros from their bank account to the exchange. The platform converts the fiat into the desired cryptocurrency and then deposits it directly into the user’s crypto wallet. This process negates the need for multiple transaction steps and reduces the transaction fees and time delays often associated with traditional crypto exchanges.

Highlighting the Seamless Nature of Transactions

The most remarkable aspect of crypto IBANs is the seamless nature of transactions they facilitate. Users do not have to move funds between different accounts or platforms manually; the integration takes care of the conversion and transfer processes behind the scenes.

This seamless operation significantly enhances the user experience, making engaging in crypto transactions more convenient and less time-consuming. It also opens up new possibilities for using cryptocurrencies in everyday financial activities, from online purchases to receiving salaries in crypto.

TRASTRA’s Strategic Move: Transition to a New Banking Partner

With all of the above going on, it was only a matter of time before TRASTRA embarked on a strategic transition by partnering with Nuvei, a globally renowned payment technology provider. This move is aimed at enhancing the platform’s banking infrastructure to support the growing demand for even faster crypto-to-euro conversion and hassle-free transfers of euros throughout the Single European Payment Area (SEPA).
