Transak is thrilled to announce a partnership with Vertex Protocol, a decentralized exchange replete with a trading engine built on Arbitrum. Through this partnership, the process of crypto acquisition-to-trading is enriched for all concerned users.

Decentralized exchanges, while offering unparalleled security and autonomy, often grapple with complexities that can deter new and existing users.

Vertex Protocol is a decentralized exchange (DEX) protocol offering a range of services including spot trading, perpetual contracts, and an integrated money market. Often, users cannot begin using any of the services that platforms like Vertex offer unless they already hold cryptocurrencies.

By integrating Transak, Vertex users can buy Arbitrum-native USDC using fiat currency (USD, EUR, etc) right within the Vertex app and begin trading.

“Accessibility has remained a pressing challenge for most users who want to engage in a truly decentralized trading experience. Vertex Protocol provides the necessary toolset for such users, while Transak opens the door to using these tools with the help of in-app fiat-to-crypto conversions,” said Yeshu Agarwal, CTO of Transak.

For those new to trading, this integration is a game-changer. Vertex Protocol users can now top up their wallets and get ready for trading in just 30 seconds, thanks to Transak’s Lite KYC feature. This quick and easy process bypasses the need for extensive document-based ID verification, making the entry into crypto trading smoother than ever.

Existing Transak users, with a user base of over 4.5 million, will find the transition to trading on Vertex Protocol seamless. With no need to undergo the KYC process again, KYC-ed users can immediately start trading. For more seasoned traders, the Enhanced KYC option allows for high-volume transactions, up to $75,000 in a single purchase.

“The integration with Transak not only enhances our platform’s accessibility but also aligns perfectly with our mission to offer a user-friendly trading environment. This collaboration is a stride towards making crypto trading more approachable and efficient for everyone,” said Darius Tabatabai, co-founder of Vertex Protocol

This partnership represents a leap forward in the world of decentralized trading. By combining Transak's streamlined fiat-to-crypto gateway with Vertex Protocol’s advanced trading features, we're making the crypto trading journey more accessible, efficient, and enjoyable.
