LUKSO's Universal Profiles Integrates Transak For Mass Adoption In The Web3 Creator Economy

Transak x lukso (1)

In a significant move for the Web3 creator economy, Transak has now been integrated into LUKSO's Universal Profiles, making Transak the first on-ramp provider that has been natively integrated within LUKSO’s blockchain ecosystem.

This announcement is the next step in the Transak-LUKSO partnership that was initially announced in November 2023, and focuses on simplifying the process of entering the blockchain space, particularly for new users in creative fields like social media and gaming.

According to a report by Goldman Sachs, the creator economy would hover around the $500 billion mark by as early as 2027. With blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies becoming increasingly integral in an ownership-driven web, LUKSO, a Layer-1 EVM blockchain, is at the forefront of this evolution. By incorporating Transak’s On-Ramp solution, LUKSO is addressing a critical need in the creator economy - simplifying the entry into blockchain and crypto spaces.

This integration enables users to seamlessly acquire $LYX, LUKSO's native blockchain token, using familiar payment methods such as credit/debit cards, bank transfers, or supported payment apps. This is particularly significant considering the global ambition of LUKSO and Transak operating in over 160 countries, including major markets like the U.K., Europe, Australia, India, and the Philippines.

"At Transak, we have immense faith in an internet that is based on ownership and digital assets. The driving force being such a web would be digital creators. This partnership with LUKSO, brings us a step closer to that reality by empowering millions of creators worldwide to access web3 with minimal hurdles." said Yeshu Agarwal, CTO of Transak.

While LUKSO’s innovative features like Universal Profiles (UPs) and its gasless transactions have already simplified user interaction within its ecosystem, the addition of Transak’s solution addresses the last major hurdle - the ease of acquiring native tokens. This integration is pivotal in ensuring that the complexities of blockchain technology don't deter creative individuals and developers from exploring this space.

Users can easily create a Universal Profile on LUKSO and immediately begin interacting on-chain, with gasless transactions.

"LUKSO's goal is to onboard the 99% of people who still haven't used blockchain. Those who are using blockchain now are the ones who have learned how to jump through multiple hoops of complexity, but that is not going to work for everyone. With Universal Profiles, LUKSO adds the key ingredients blockchain needs to grow, namely accessibility and usability" said LUKSO Co-Founder Fabian Volgesteller.
